Jesse "RuFF" Hall is an American Terran who is currently teamless.
Jesse "Ruff" Hall was born 13 September 1985 in Homestead, Florida. Jesse began playing StarCraft roughly around the release of StarcCraft I; receiving his first copy on Christmas from his parents. He played StarCraft mostly with his father and quickly became one of his favorites next to the Mech Warrior series. Later, he purchased his very first game with a long one hour bike ride to the store, which was StarCraft: Brood War. He has been on and off with Brood War and Guildwars before the StarCraft II release.
At an older age he attended Fayetteville State University in North Carolina and is pursuing a Masters Degree in Mathematics and Teaching. Math becomes fun to Jesse as he thinks of it as a strategic game or puzzle. He tutors students at the university and does coaching for StarCraft II using that knowledge.
RuFF finds micro play to be more fun and more effective, at times, as opposed to macro play. His micro intensive gaming style comes from the South Korean progamer BoxeR, who he has admired since Brood War. He is now recognized for his intuitive and completely "against the metagame" builds on ladder and at LAN events.
