Bio

Johan ‘NaNiwa’ Lucchesi, colloquially referred to as “NaNi”, is a professional Protoss player from Sweden who is currently playing for Alliance.

A former WarCraft III player, NaNiwa switched to StarCraft II during the beta and made a name for himself in weekly online cups. While NaNiwa’s achievements have led him to become one of the most successful foreign players in the scene, his behavior has also led him to become a figure of controversy.

In 2013, NaNiwa earned over $70,000 in prize money, despite not winning a single major international event. He took 1st place in three different Swedish competitions, and took top 4 in four different international events.

NaNiwa entered the 2013 WCS Global Championship seeded #16. His first round opponent was #1 seed Soulkey, who would end up winning the series 3-1.
