Maru "MaSa" Kim (born March 20, 1995) is a Canadian/South Korean Terran player who is currently playing for PSISTORM Gaming.

Biography[edit]

MaSa began seriously competing in StarCraft II after being inspired by players like BoxeR and NaDa competing in the GSL. He was a member of Team Nightmares before being signed by Root Gaming on July 12, 2012.[1]

On January 1, 2016, MaSa joined the Team eLevate.[2]

Wings of Liberty[edit]

MaSa qualified for NASL Season 4 by reaching the top 4 of the Season 3 Open Tournament, falling to Beastyqt in the Ro4.

MaSa went undefeated through the I'm Out Already!? Invitational, defeating qxc, LzGaMeR, and CatZ without dropping a set.[3]

Trivia[edit]

  • Was called by RootCatZ the "secret weapon of ROOT", and after defeating ThorZaIN 2-0 in EG:MCSL, this assertion seems to hold some truth.
  • On January 8, 2020 he announced he became a Canadian citizen. [4]
