History

Hwang "Min" Doh Hyung is a former StarCraft II progamer from South Korea who played Zerg for SlayerS. He has retired from professional StarCraft II.

Biography[edit]

Min is a former Zerg Brood War Player who spent four years trying to get into Brood War gaming team SK Telecom 1. However, due to economic challenges in the family, Min had to drop out of the team to earn money.[Citation needed] He started playing SC2 since the beta and started off playing Terran for the Prime team. However after reading an article describing how the Zerg players were struggling at the time, he decided to switch race to Zerg.[Citation needed] After doing so, he lost 1000 points on the ladder.

He was invited to the SlayerS tryout tournament because he was a former SKT1 player. He won the tournament out of 64 players and was accepted into the team.

Wings of Liberty[edit]

Min started playing as a Terran Player and he made it to the Qualifier Finals for GSL twice. He then switched to Zerg because Zerg were struggling at that time and he was inspired by Zerg players on higher ranks. After that he participated in the tournament for the SlayerS tryouts which he actually won. Because of that he was able to join the Team. In GSTL May he was able to beat Code S Player InCa before he lost to oGsTOP in a very close game.

On July 2, 2012, Min was able to qualify for the first StarCraft II OSL through the Non-KeSPA Preliminaries, in which he beat Sparta, Leenock, Sculp and DeParture to secure the spot. Min retired from Starcraft II and switched to League of Legends in October 2012, as SlayerS disbanded.[1]

Code A[edit]

His first showing in Code A May would see him defeat TheBest 2-1, but fall to Mvp in the Round of 16, keeping him in Code A for the next season. In Code A July he wasn't able to win against YoDa in the Round of 32 and so he dropped out of Code A.
