With a series of articles, W3arena will try to make you feel the atmosphere of the Golden Championship Series S2 and help you get to know the Asian players better.

Quote from Lyn :

"What happened in the last two years? Before I went to the army, UD was easier to beat!" Lyn, on Group D, day 1


A note on 120's name :

They made fun of me at GCS for calling him OneTwenty. His name in Chinese is Yi Er Ling -> OneTwoZero. Time to adjust people!


Interview Conditions :

When ? On day 2 of Group D, 2 hours before his match against Lyn.

How ? With the help of Mrs Siriu, long time fan of Yumiko. She speaks english.

Where? In the practice room

This is my last day of coverage. I saw 120 a lot in the practice room but I could not really talk to him. On day 2, Foggy, Lyn, and 120 are the only players in the practice room. I am here with Sirui (the lady that broke my leg live on B2W ^^), she agrees to help me with the translation. 120 seems happy to talk to me. He is relaxed and smiling, not affected at all by the fact that he is about to play vs Lyn.


You are very young, why did you chose to play WC3 and not another game like League of Legends?

WC3 is just more exciting.

Why did you chose to play UD, which is considered the weakest race in both Asia and Europe?

UD is the race with the most "energy" (ie always on the offense, on the aggressive side). And my favorite hero is the Lich!

From who did you get your inspiration to play UD so well?

Ted and WFZ. WFZ is the one that revolutionized the balance of the game vs orcs. He was a pioneer.

What did he change about the UD/Orc MU?

He studied the timing and the creeping routes of the Orcs to put pressure on them. They could not level up the BM as easily and get all the items they wanted.

How did you become so strong all of a sudden? 

Just learning from Ted and WFZ. I watch my own replays very carefully to find the perfect build and the perfect timing in all situations.

I did not want to use too much of his time since he needed to prepare for his match against Lyn. Interviewing with a translator takes more time. He started a Netease ladder game against a human. I posted a few tweets, then sat next to him. 


His ladder game vs the Human :

I was amazed by what I saw. AMAZED. This human did not seem to do any mistake, but 120 always found a solution. Coil was always defensive and came at the perfect time so the fiends went from being about to die to full health. When one unit cannot be saved, Lich would always use dark ritual to deny experience. 

In major battle, 120 would always manage to back his army while spreading the fiends, keeping always the perfect position. The HU chasing him would always be trap in a cone of "Nova / Focus fire" and lose unit after unit. When a statue is about to die, it morphs into a destroyer and is coiled so fast... the HU cannot kill anything!

Play of the Day : 120 manages to see a sapper incoming on his half hp gold mine. He blocks the sapper with one acolyte, then surrounds it with the 5 of them. GG! Wow!

I applauded him at the end! He went on to beat Lyn 2-0 in a very impressive manner. GL OneTwoZero for your playoff game vs TH000!



Note : His worst matchup is vs HU. He has never beaten any of the top 3 Chinese Humans (Infi, Th000, Yumiko) in a BO3.

My prediction : 120 2-1 Th000

UD of Europe, time to rise again! WFZ and 120 are showing the way! Let's Make UD great again!

Now that I'm retired, I keep track of W3 events such as these only if I get to see background story like this, or get to see people playing live, watching their reactions, emotions, how they talk about other opponents. Those things are interesting to me now. And this is a nice job of you man. Keep it going!

50% ud thinks he knows more about orc than one of the top 2 orc legends of WC3 who helped revolutionize the way orc is played against all races including even Undead. Genius :D

he is right, WFZ revolutionized the game vs orcs but 120 man, he's something else, he has taken the UD race to a level noone has ever reached and seen!!! @Icesoul what are you saying dude, fly lost to 120 easily cuz he didnt have spirit walkers. Great job Ugri, keep it up!
