Jo Byung Se, 26 years South Korea

sKyHigh's eSports career started in 2007, when he joined CJ Entus, one of KeSPA teams. Throughout his StarCraft: Brood War career he was playing at an average level: he was one of the strongest Terran vs Terran players and an effective Proleague sniper, but his skills in other matchups were not as good as they could be. His greatest achievements were two Ro36 finishes at OSL 2010 ana a reverse kill of Lecaf Oz in 2008-09 Proleague Winners League Finals. The team let him play when the score was already 0:3, but he managed to avoid Jaedong's "fifth pool", win three sets in a row and earn his team a hard-fought victory. In 2012, sKyHigh moved to StarCraft II and disappeared from the scene, playing only a few matches during Proleague hybrid season. Looks like the trainers were more oriented towards younger players rather than the veterans. However, sKyHigh decided to continue his training, not going to army or joining a non-Korean team. His efforts brought him to success: in 2014 he played in GSL Code A for two times and even advanced to Hot6ix Last Big Match the semifinals, beating up such foes as Flash, Classic and Bbyong. He was stopped by sOs in the semifinals. By advancing to the semifinals of such prestigious tournament as Hot6ix Last Big Match sKyHigh proved that he is still a force to be reckoned with, especially when his opponent is a Terran player.
