Jo "sKyHigh" Byung Se is a StarCraft progamer from South Korea who played Terran for CJ Entus.

He played Terran in StarCraft II and coached for CJ Entus.

Biography[edit]

SkyHigh was one of the five players drafted by CJ Entus on April 2007. He started getting spotlight after his unexpectedly great performance in 2008-2009 Averatec-Intel Classic Season 2, where he went through players like NaDa and Best to finally get defeated 0-3 by Bisu in a very one-sided semifinal series. He has yet to show good performance in MSL and OSL. SKyHigh was very successful in the Shinhan Winners League where he played a large role in bringing his team to the finals, where he is most known for his famous reverse all-kill against Hwaseung Oz by surviving a 5 Pool attempt by Jaedong and taking on Young, Spear, and Hiya to take the championship for his team.

Facts[edit]

  • SkyHigh has been called the "Neo-Berserker" for having a very similar play-style (specifically in TvP) to his older teammate Iris (whose nickname is the "Berserker Terran").
  • Known for his monstrous TvT having over 70% winrate as of July 9th 2010.
  • GSL Season 2 semifinal appearance
  • Performed a reverse all-kill in the Shinhan Winners League Final
  • SkyHigh qualified for the 2009 EVER OSL but was knocked out in the round of 36 by ggaemo
