We haven't seen him play for five years, but now he is back - in the roster for KTF MAgicNs on October 24th versus Hanbit Stars.



2007_garimtoktf.jpgSHINHAN PROLEAGUE. Kim Dong Soo, more known as Garimto, signed a contract with KTF MagicNs back in January 2007. The hopes were high on the oldschool Protoss player but he has yet to play an official match in the professional StarCraft scene since his comeback.

Now it's time for the fans to see the Protoss legend again, in the ShinHan ProLeague on October 24th. Playing for KTF MagicNs, he goes up against Free from Hanbit Stars on the map Python.

Garimto has been called the Boxer of Protoss, and is a Korean legend after winning OnGameNet StarLeague twice, back in 2000 and 2001. Known for many inventions that changed the way of the Protoss, Garimto is considered by many the father of Protoss.

- "He invented the Archon splash on Zealots to kill Lurkers. He was possibly the first to do proxy Reavers," writes FrozenArbiter back in 2005. He also writes that he mind controlled an Overlord instead of teching to Observers, another example on his unique play style back in the days.
