Park "Really" Sang Woo is a retired StarCraft progamer from South Korea who played Terran for Woongjin Stars.

Biography[edit]

Really's strong and solid play saw him rise in status at eStro and soon become the team's ACE, often being selected, over fellow terran Upmagic. His improvements were noticeable in Round 1 of the 09-10 Proleague season where scored stats of 8 wins and 3 losses, giving him the 5th most wins in the round alongside Jaedong (who finished with 8 wins and 5 losses). Really has had limited success in single leagues. He qualified for the 2009 EVER OSL but was knocked out in the Round of 36 by Shine. Really's strong proleague performance continued into round 2, where he finished with 10 wins and 4 losses, 2-1 record in Ace matches and victories over Fantasy, Flash and JangBi, extending his vP streak to 11 games and leaving him undeafeated against Protoss in the Proleague season so far. This gave him third place on the most wins table after round two with an 18-7 record.

After the disbanding of eSTRO he was drafted into Woongjin Stars for the 10-11 Proleague Season.

Really announced his retirement on his fancafe on August 3, 2011, a day after getting eliminated in the MST.[1]

Style[edit]

  • TvZ - Really is a heavy bio user, preferring it over the newer mech style. He also plays with relatively few tanks, in favor of more barracks. Even late game vs Ultraling, tanks are few and far between.
  • TvT - Really has had very solid TvT until late in his career, and while not having a particularly good record, what's impressive is his ability to win games off of any player, most, he was responsible for ending Flash's insane 22 game win streak in early 2010.
  • TvP - Really has been promoting usage of Optical Flare in his recent games, most notably on Match Point. He plays vultures, mines, and tanks while blinding observers efficiently mid battle or before/during a Protoss push disrupting the timing. He recently stated in an interview that he was comfortable using this strategy on other maps[2]. His effective Optical Flare usage sets him apart from other Terrans.
  • Plays an extremely macro focused style in all match-ups.
  • Late Game - If Really enters late game with a sizable lead, it is almost guaranteed that he will tech nukes. Rarely will the game continue long enough to see them used however, as the opponent will either realize that he cannot come back, or leave after scouting it, before they have a chance to be used (as in this game vs Sea)

Facts[edit]

  • Really ended Flash's 22 game TvT streak after defeating him in a proleague game on Match Point in Round 2 of the 09-10 Proleague season.
  • Really is known for using the AKA "Seiya" in his televised games.
  • Joined Woongjin Stars after his old team eSTRO had disbanded.
