[edit] Biography

Sean "Day[9]" Plott, brother of Nicolas "Tasteless" Plott, is a well-known StarCraft: Brood War and StarCraft II player and commentator. Day[9] is the host of the popular Day9 Daily show, where he casts and analyzes high level play. With the release of StarCraft II, Day[9] has become the face of StarCraft in the growing e-Sports community, as well as a focal point for StarCraft casting and commentating. In StarCraft II, Day[9] plays Random (previously Zerg in Brood War). Day[9] formerly co-hosted State of the Game with JP "itmeJP" McDaniel, Tyler "NonY" Wasieleski, Geoff 'iNcontroL Robinson and Dan "Artosis" Stemkoski.

Day[9] received an undergraduate degree in Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College. On May 11, 2011, he obtained a Masters degree in Interactive Media from USC.

On May 31, 2011, while co-hosting an episode of State of the Game, Day[9] announced that he planned to begin streaming himself playing games once he stopped being "embarrassingly terrible". [1]

[edit] In Beta

During the beta Day[9] did not participate in many tournaments. He was invited to the HDH Invitational where he lost to Tasteless in the first round. Day[9] has also played in the TeamLiquid SC2 Invitational 2 where he lost to Artosis in the first round. Sean has instead focused on his commentating in tournaments like the TLI 1 and ZOTAC Cup.

He has also been in several podcasts, such as his own podcast on TeamLiquid and MLG's podcast series, where he discusses the game with other players.

[edit] Wings of Liberty

As of August 24, 2010, Day[9] was ranked 18th in his division in Platinum League, with a record of 17-4.[2] This was not his main laddering account however, which he tried to keep low profile in order to keep himself from being recognized on ladder.[3] In Season 2 of Wings of Liberty, the Day[9] account had not played any matches in 1v1. However, in 2v2, Day[9] was ranked in Master league. It is mentioned on several episodes of the Daily that Day[9] did not actually possess an account on which he played Random, as was widely believed, but rather 3 smurf accounts, one for each race. He would physically roll a die to see which race he would play. At some point, he had stated that all three of his accounts were in Grandmaster League.[4]
