History
Created:
October 2006
Disbanded:
August 2010

eSTRO was a Korean StarCraft professional team. In August 2010, the player dormitory and practice house was shut down. KeSPA assumed stewardship over the team and looked for a buyer. When this failed, the team was dissolved and the players were drafted to the remaining 10 pro teams.[1]

Overview[edit]

  • eSTRO also had a Special Forces team in addition to their StarCraft team. They used to have a Counter-Strike team which is now sponsored by WeMadeFox.
  • Under the management of Daniel Lee, the team has been active in bringing foreign progamers to Korea throughout its history as AMD, Hexatron and finally eSTRO.
  • Team history:
    • Founded as AMD Dream Team in January 2002.
    • Changed name to Dream Team in January 2004.
    • Changed name to Hexatron Dream Team in February 2004.
    • Changed name to eNature Top Team in March 2005.
    • Changed name to eSTRO in October 2006.

Dissolution Draft[edit]

When eSTRO dissolved in October 2010, the remaining players were drafted to different teams.

The way of drafting was:

While the idea of a draft based on a team's finish last season had been floated, a system much like an auction has been selected to decide where the ex-Estro players will end up.
KeSPA will first set a minimum contract for the Estro players, where the bidding will begin. The minimum contract for a player is the average salary of all other players who performed similarly during the 2009~2010 season. The player will be contracted to the team with the highest offer.[2]
