Bio

Lim ‘NesTea’ Jae Duk is a Zerg player from South Korea, who is currently playing for Incredible Miracle. Following his third GSL championship, he was widely considered the best Zerg player in the world.

In Brood War, NesTea (aka Zergbong) was a coach and player for South Korean progaming team, KT Rolster. He was most notable for his 2v2 performances with Reach, as well as being a coach for KT’s Zerg roster.

NesTea’s most notable strength is his unparalleled decision making. Tastosis on several occasions has compared NesTea’s playstyle to that of Brood War’s sAviOr, as NesTea’s playstyle generally revolves around heavy droning and making the correct/minimum number of units for defense before controlling the map by taking expansions slowly. NesTea’s great decision making also contributes to his high ZvZ win-rate, as the decision to build either Drones or other units from Larvae becomes more crucial in such a volatile match up.
