Kim Yoo Jin, South Korea

sOs, also known as Shy during the StarCraft 1 era, has become one of the most fateful StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm players. This protoss has invented a whole new PvZ playstyle that involved a Void Ray - Zealot - Archon combination. The combo became one of the most popular in Protoss vs Zerg matches in 2013 and brought great results to sOs himself. PvZ matchup also let sOs become a World Champion in 2013. The player took first place at World Championship Series Grand Finals, a tournament that was held at BlizzCon 2013, and advanced to the finals of WCS 2013 Season One and Red Bull Battle Grounds New York. After having to leave Woongjin Stars for Jin Air Green Wings, in March 2014 sOs was invited to IEM World Championship as the defending champion. It was at that tournament where sOs earned his second victory as a Protoss and won another $100,000. sOs played through proxy gateways in two starting sets for the first time in the history of StarCraft 2. Thanks to these two victories, sOs became the most successful player of 2013-2014. His performance at ProLeague 2014 was very strange to say the least. He started with a score of 2-7 and became the biggest disappointment of the first round, but then won all his games in second round and received a prize for the largest number of victories, winning 22 more times and losing only 5 games. Interesting fact: no losing player (including sOs) has ever managed to win more than 1 map at all individual finals that featured sOs as a player. Moreover, for a long time he failed to take first place at any Korean cup. However, in 2014 sOs finally took first place at Hot6ix Cup 2014, earning his first title in the Korean region.
