Ilyes 'Stephano' Satouri just revealed via Twitter that he would be participating in Homestory Cup VIII.

The French Zerg retired earlier this year in order to attend university. At the time of his retirement he had pocketed $236,180 in earnings alone, and had also had two years of salary under his belt from his stints with professional teams Evil Geniuses and Millennium.

Homestory Cup organizer Dennis 'TaKe' Gehlen released a promotion video on YouTube to hype Satouri's return. The video featured Satouri draped in a dated Evil Geniuses jersey, with red tape covering sponsor that no longer supports the team, sitting down at a computer and warming up his hands.

Homestory Cup VIII takes place this weekend, and boasts a prize pool of $25,000. The tournament can be watched on TaKe's channel.
