I first created this image back in 2008 after watching a GomTV match featuring Nick ‘Tasteless’ Plott as the commentator of the eSports battle. It was Averatec-Intel Classic Season 1, Never vs Shuttle Game 2 at the two minute mark when a probe became an unexpected warrior. Quite impressed with the probe’s performance Tasteless exclaimed, “That probe probably has Tattoos and piercings he’s so badass”.
The following day the quote continued to make me giggle, and I couldn’t get the image out of my head. I decided I had to share my mirth with the world and created this image:
I’ve been refurbishing my website, and ran into the image and couldn’t resist touching it up a bit. I hope the project is enjoyable, I didn’t want to spend too much time on it, but I think its still a fun image for sure!
Comment below if you have a sweet quote that might be good to do a similar image. I’d like to do a series of eSports moments with quotes and images like this. Do you think that’d be a cool idea? Would it be worthwhile to create more images like this?
