About Kripparrian[edit | edit source]

"When I was watching Kripp's stream before Blizzcon [2013], I actually didn't think he was that good of a player, but when I played against him at Blizzcon and spoke to him a bit, I realised he just looks at the game differently than I do, or any of my teammates do." - Artosis[17]
