Overview[edit]

Artur "Blackman" Michalak is a retired Polish StarCraft player. He played Zerg.

Biography[edit]

The Polish Zerg was one of the strongest Zerg players in the foreign scene in the first years of StarCraft Brood War. He is widely considered as one of the most talented players of the Polish scene, only topped by Draco years after Blackman finally retired. His biggest success was a bronze medal at WCG 2002, where he only lost to Boxer and YellOw.

  • An urban legend says that Blackman trained with the help of own scripted, customized AIs, because he had no internet at home
  • In his game against Boxer at WCG 2002 Blackman got horribly outmicroed; scenes of this VODs are often used in best-of clips
