We here at ROOT have always prided ourselves on our ability to help refine burgeoning players into strong competitors. In the past we helped players like qxc, Sheth, and Minigun reach their full potential, and it is in this spirit that we are proud to announce the newest addition to our SC2 squad: MaSa.
Maru “MaSa” Kim is a 17 year-old Canadian player who immersed himself in the world of competitive StarCraft after being inspired by BoxeR and NaDa’s GSL RO8 games. MaSa is a dedicated player and has managed to consistently reach the top 25 of NA’s grandmaster ladder. As a Terran, MaSa will round out ROOT’s lineup and give the team greater diversity both in practice and on clan-war battlefields. He may even be able to brainstorm new builds with Drewbie that will end Terran Q_Q. Maybe.
Here’s what MaSa had to say about joining ROOT:
“First of all, I want to thank all ROOT members and staff for providing me a chance to experience this whole new thing that I've always wanted to try. I am surely and truly excited to be a member of ROOT gaming. I know ROOT gaming is very popular team in North America, and I will do my best to avoid showing failure to any followers of ROOT. I will try my best to devote myself to the game for ROOT, showing good results as well as improving myself as an SC2 player.”
ROOT recently acquired a Zerg innovator in Fitzy and a Protoss powerhouse in puCK, so taking a Terran under our team’s wing seemed fitting. The development of these three players is one of ROOT’s primary focuses, and we can’t wait to see how they perform over the coming months.
Welcome to your new home, MaSa!
Three hundred lives of men I have walked this world, and now I have no time.

Most people probably don't know of MaSa, but he's been on Nightmares for quite a while now and an extremely underrated Terran who's been consistently very strong. A very nice pickup for ROOT, though sad to see Nightmare's staple player leave that team as well! GL!
