Dad’s birthday wishes: “Lost today to VG. Today was my dad’s birthday, ever year I would take some time on family birthdays to go eat together, but today I wasn’t able to spend time with family to celebrate the occasion. My dad didn’t blame me, in fact his wish was for me to win these games today, but not only have I let down fans I’ve also let down my dad… I’m sorry~ I wish my dad health, happy birthday~~

Sansheng and xiao8

Getting friendly: After xiao8 posted about their undefeated winning run through NEST, Sansheng responded “Director 8 so good, I want to have your babies [flirty face]”

Sag

Exhausting event schedule (NEST): “Played so much that my spinal discs are protruding…”

Getting fit (with pic): “Life is about fitness, not late night snacks! Time for situps, xiao8, ddc, take your time eating, I’ll be at home.”
Stamina for event (NEST): “Really time to start training stamina for esports in this day and age.”Champs of NEST: “Champions, our first big offline event after our roster changes. Everyone worked very hard, especially Rabbit xiaotuji, with his first career title. The road ahead is still lengthy, brothers let us continue facing our challenges!”

Zhou

About his trashtalking at offline (NEST): “Been a while since my last offline event, I wanted to shout and get our team’s spirit flowing. Usually in these kinds of events if you lose in spirit then things become much more difficult, in the group stages our loss to VG came from just this reason. But anyway, today’s taunts might have been a bit much, so if I offended anyone I want to say sorry here :D”

WPC-ACE’s halfway statistics mini-roundup

As of the end of October, the 2013 WPC-ACE League has reached its halfway point, and WPC has done a small roundup of  various performance indicators so far.

Top Single Game Kills: VG.fy

A Chinese fan’s take on VG.fy’s performance: “He’s clearly one of the top new players on the scene right now, and definitely a top 3 support player. He just needs a stronger platform from which to display his abilities.”

Top Single Game Deaths: RStars.357

SCNTV’s take on this ‘deathly’ performance on Visage: “Once the opposing side successfully dodges a Visage trilane, the Visage is at a significant disadvantage.”

Highest GPM in a Single Game: TongFu.Zhou

Highest XPM in a Single Game: TongFu.Zhou

SCNTV’s take on Zhou’s top carry play: “Zhou takes both GPM and XPM honors, leaving his carry abilities beyond doubt.”
