Link to previous issue: Oct 10 — 16

Put two weeks of stuff into this one. Alphabetical order, etc

Black

Basketball 1v1: In response to Mushi, Black is eager to see who’s truly best in this sport…

BurNIng

Response to ACE’s loosening of match restrictions for Chinese teams: “This is music to the ears of all players and fans :D”

Faith

Regarding his drafts for iG of late: “My BPs have been a bit haphazard lately, lacking focus. Looks like it’s time to sort through my thoughts…”

Haitao (big-name Chinese caster)

Drama: TLDR — One of the suppliers for his Taobao shop was scamming by providing sub-par quality products, then when called out, ran with the money (100,000 RMB).

Language skills: “Just how can I improve on my Chinese?!”

LongDD’s response to iceiceice: “I teach you?”

A champion’s equipment: “This mouse that has accompanied me for two years, multiple championships, finally broke. Let’s commemorate it for a moment. And then it’s time for new gear to continue on in my fights!”

Mushi

Reflections after 0-2 loss against TongFu: “After losing, I am very unhappy. It’s not that I cannot afford to lose, but that I feel I have failed. Bad drafts, bad performances. Right now we’re in a bit of a dip in form, but also must thank all the commiserations from so many people. We never give up! Time is what allows us to grow.”

Xtt

Birthday gift (with pic): “Sansheng’s birthday gift to me, a name brand!”

Yao

Pub problems… (with pic): “:(”
Maybe not… (with pic): “Weathered the storm?”

Zhou

On TongFu’s 2-0 over DK: “We caught DK off-guard today in our win over them, we picked a lineup that even we didn’t really understand in order to play a high pressure pushing strategy, the results ended up being excellent. But Chinese teams must be willing to try things, to fight, in order to become more flexible and creative. This way we can eventually contend against Western teams. This is only a beginning, we still need more hard work in order to catch up to those teams ahead of us.”
Fatigue: “Don’t want to sit in front of a computer all day any more! Professional players don’t have it easy, hope everyone can lend your support and encouragement.”
