Overview[edit]

Matija "Ptak" Vragovićis was best Croatian StarCraft player and held that title for many years.

He started playing StarCraft with his friends in PC bangs in the late 90s. PC bangs were quite popular in Croatia back then, though they weren't used for Internet access, but playing games in LAN. After being able to comfortably beat any one of his friends, a feat that, as he says, took him a couple of years, he started playing StarCraft on Battle.net.

There, he was completely out-skilled, but he diligently continued to play more and improve slowly making a name for himself. Ptak joined a few clans and says that he really developed as a player in NrT. Upon joining clan [SomE] he got a track suit with their logo and said that that was his first profit from playing StarCraft. Eventually he joined [[[MicroGamerZ]], a clan that he will stay loyal to until it's end. During the time in MgZ) he became most known and phrases such as 'ZERG POWERHOUSE!' where often chanted before his matches.

After the final disband of MgZ), Ptak played in NaW- team, but left it along some other players because they felt the team is no longer active.
