About ROOT Gaming
ROOT Gaming is a North American StarCraft II team that was created on the 22nd of March 2010, founded by four StarCraft II players: Drewbie, JiYan, CatZ, and qxc, quickly developing to become one of the best and most popular teams in North America. In early 2011, ROOT established a joint gaming house in Florida together with Fnatic, having CatZ, Drewbie from ROOT, and Fenix and TT1 from Fnatic living in the house.
On June 11, 2011, compLexity Gaming announced that they had acquired ROOT Gaming and the majority of their roster: CatZ, Drewbie, Minigun and DdoRo, whilst KiWiKaKi and SLush decided not to join compLexity and became part of the newly formed Team ReIGN. Destiny initially signed with compLexity but then changed his mind about joining the team.
