    I've been watching the battle reports for StarCraft 2, and at the end, David Kim is always victorious. Is he like an ex-SC champion that was hired into Blizzard, or a developer that mastered the game. It seems like everything he does at the moment the battle starts is like a chess-move to checkmating the opponent. All I gotta say is he micro-managed this shit perfectly.

    So who is David Kim?

    According to google, David Kim is a famous violin player that does plastic surgery on the side. :p

    But seriously:

    He's a Korean guy that used to be a pro Starcraft player. Switched to Warcraft 3 later. At the moment Kim is working as the balance guy in the Blizzard team, so he knows pretty much everything about every possible counter. He's so good because it's basically his job to be perfect at this.

    I hope that clears things up a bit. :)

    Question: In Garena and also top war3 players I know are Koreans/Chinese kinda have their US flag there (some) and US names - their real names. So are they Koreans or they have Korean origin? Obviously I should ignore the flag and names, or they play for US cause US doesn't have real pro players to emit - fact.

    So what's Kim's name in war3?
