Do you have any memories that you would like to share related to WCG?

The very last WCG I've participated was the most memorable.
Starting from the preliminaries, the five of us as a team made it to the finals and finally put our names in the hall of fames.
Although we’re not together anymore, it was a tough challenge which I will never forget.

What does WCG mean to you?

WCG is a very important tournament that changed my life and destiny. That’s why this event carries a huge meaning for me.
Most of all, WCG totally changed my life; from a local doctor to a world champion in an esports tournament

I hope that WCG stays strong and solid during its upcoming tournaments. I wish all the best for WCG's future endeavors.

Do you have any memories that you would like to share related to WCG?

I have a lot of good memories about WCG. To pick one, it would be 2005 when I first won a WCG title and became the world champion. I was so happy.
That time when I lifted the title in Singapore…it was something that I’ve never imagined myself doing. It was indeed my happiest moment since my life changed ever since that event.
The most unforgettable episode happened at the 2002 WCG event. Since I didn’t even have my own mouse back then, I needed to get some decent gear for the tournament. I remember going to my cousin’s house to borrow a mouse to compete at WCG.

WCG has met its 20th anniversary. Do you have any words?

I’ve won two WCGs during my career. During the 2013 event, I faced the Philippines, which my country was in a national conflict with, in the finals. The pre-game tension was higher than ever before, and I was very happy that we’ve won. I took great pride to represent my country. It was also a personal dream come true.
