Wayne "soso" Chiang is a retired StarCraft progamer from United States who played random, or race-picked.
Soso was among the top players during the earliest days of StarCraft and Brood War. Soso had a rivalry with Canadian player Grrrr..., meeting in multiple tournaments and show matches, with battle reports documenting many of such match-ups. Soso maintained a friendship with team/clan mate Gadianton.
Soso's strategies and editorials were widely read in the earliest days of Starcraft online coverage, with his articles appearing at Gamers.com and Firingsquad.com, where he acted as editor and/or administrator. Soso's legacy is likely marked by his origination of Pimpest Plays in 2002 as he compiled unique game tactics that served productive purposes, and thus not executed just for show. Additionally, Soso is likely remembered in lore for using his StarCraft fame towards meeting Eugene of Korean pop music girl group S.E.S. Since early on in his public gaming achievements, Soso had dedicated his victories to Eugene, in addition to as operating a "shrine" fan page in her honor.  Soso eventually succeeded in utilizing his media attention to meeting Eugene at a concert in October 1999.
Soso graduated from the University of California, San Diego in 2007. His post-StarCraft activities include poker, screenwriting, comic drawing, and web development.
