Guillaume Patry (born June 19, 1982) is a Canadian professional StarCraft player who plays under the alias Grrrr... He is from Quebec City,[1] was a StarCraft world champion in 1999.[2] He dominated the scene as a random player before he arrived in Korea, where he then focused on the Protoss race. While Garimto pioneered many "cheesy" strategies for Protoss, virtually every (then) standard build order was a direct result of Grrr's innovations. He won the Hanaro OSL- the first OSL in history[3]- a king of king's tournament, and placed high in a variety of others in a long career. Eventually his interest and performance in Starcraft declined, resulting in his retirement in early 2004.

After he retired, he became a gambler with Bertrand Grospellier, former French professional StarCraft gamer, but quit again.[clarification needed]

Patry in 2014

According to a report from FOMOS (online professional game media), he's living a life as an ordinary staff member of a company, but he said that he could return to the professional game field after the release of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.[4]

He is currently a panelist on the talk show Non-Summit[5] and a cast member of the variety-travel show that branched off it, Where Is My Friend's Home[6] in South Korea. In May 2015 it was announced that Patry had signed[clarification needed] with JTBC.[7]
