South Korean army trains with Starcraft

Posted on Sunday, July 08 2007 @ 05:28:24 CEST by


VNU Net reports that now even the South Korean army has adopted the country's national sport: Starcraft.
Military conscription in the country means that professional gamers are being drafted into the armed services in increasing numbers. Military chiefs see the games as a way to make use of these skills and generate positive publicity.

After the Korean air force announced the formation of its first 'e-sports' team in April, admiral Song Young-moo, the country's chief of naval operations, ordered the navy to follow suit.

Local paper the Chosun Ilbo reported that the South Korean army is also considering forming a team.

The navy and air force teams specialise in the tactical role playing game StarCraft, in which a single player controls a population of dozens of fighting and resource-gathering units.

Players command the forces to attack, defend and build various structures in a war with opposing teams controlled by other human players.
