Interview with Lawliet: Full House

Back in December

Lawliet, do you feel confident for WCA?

No, no... I'm noob!

When I've met South Korea.pngelfLawliet for the first time, it was at WCA 2016 in December. Although he qualified from the most difficult region, he was not very confident. He had been eliminated early from GCS by Serbia.pngelfRudan and did not perform very well overall since his qualification in May.

Korea had only 2 seats at WCA and they took 1st and 2nd place! Lawliet ended being Vice-World Champion, eliminating China.pnghumTH000 or Ukraine.pngelfFoggy quite easily in the process.

Now that Lawliet seems to be a noob again with many unexpected losses, I felt it was a good time for an interview. And to discuss a little bit about his famous roomates : South Korea.pnghumSok, South Korea.pnghumChaemiko and South Korea.pngorcSo.in.

His skill, his goals, his life in the A1 house... let's talk about it all!

FoCuS - "I was not focused recently"


Ah Ugri made a bad pun!

Well think better! I went to ask for some more details on what he meant while being interviewed by China.pngTolkien, and those were his exact words.

A small interview of a player so likable that for once, I am translating an article the other way!

Tolkien is an admin of Ifeng Cups and Taidu Cup. He is also a writer on RN (replays.net).

Questions are not mine, only narration in italic is my own.

Behind the scenes: Ugrilainen – The Warcraft Globetrotter

This interview is a special one, because the tide has turned. The interviewer becomes interviewee. Today's interviewer is nobody else than me myself - ena1337. I am an occasional WarCraft 3 fun streamer playing orcOrc competitively in 1on1, 2on2 and FFA and support/organize leagues and cups. I am asking Ugrilainen 14 questions about himself, his connection to WC3 and his opinions about the current state and future developments. Everyone who is involved in the scene should know Ugrilainen. He is well-known for supporting and organizing Warcraft 3 events, tournaments, showmatches and leagues for many years.

GCS Western Qualifiers #2: Going through day 1

Qualifiers #1 was pretty boring straightforward... I mean not that the games were bad but we had what we expected : Russia.pngundHappy first and Ukraine.pngelfFoggy second. Then a stacked pack of players, hard to distinguish skill-wise.

Russia.pnghumHawk made the best mark of them all, going to the LB final and creating troubles for the two favorites. Now was the time to confirm for the inquisitive Russian, and to get back into the spotlights after some difficult times.

Warcraft in Exile E02: China with Passion

It's rare for me to have the occasion to talk about Warcraft in French. The French scene has been decimated once SC2 came out and did not recover. 

Nowadays only two can have decent results internationally : France.pnghumAnima (will face Serbia.pngelfRudan for GCS Europe Qualifiers Saturday) and France.pngelfPassion. . 

We continue our series "Warcraft in Exile" with the Frenchman who decided to open up a little. He could not give us a recent/good quality picture for a nice banner, but gave us many insights!

Interview was made in English, no need to over-complicate the publication with translation work right?

Xun at GCS Asia Qualifiers : one last step


About to go on my Sunday lunchbreak

Ugri, you need to talk to China.pngundXun! There is so much controversy!

My friend Chatwin is really active on Chinese forums and Xun's performance seemed to have totally overshadowed anything else that happened : China.pngrndSini beating South Korea.pngorcFocus and South Korea.pngelfLawliet?

South Korea.pngelfMoon and South Korea.pngelfRemind coming back to GCS?

Xun unexpectedly reached the final 6 of the competition. He was one finger away to punch his ticket for Shanghai. What happened then?

I just checked with him if he had just been interviewed. No? Alright, let's just send some questions before eating!
