Interview with Snoy: GL is the true top team!
XiaoShou interviews the legendary Snoy
Snoy: Long time no see my friends!
Snoy: At first I always used snoy, but people kept telling me to change it to sony. So I did, but after my reputation grew I thought that having the same name as the brand Sony is a bit weird. In the end, I changed it back to Snoy.
Snoy: I started out playing ShanZhen for about one year. Then someone created a game of DotA, so I just joined the game. That's how I first got introduced to DotA. I like DotA because there's a lot of Heroes, skills and equipment to choose from, compared to ShanZhen which only has a few heroes.
Snoy: I felt that playing alone does not improve my skill level, so I decided to join a team. I did want to join Nebula, but when I applied, they said I could only join the third team, in which I had absolutely no interest whatsoever. When I first started playing DotA, I occasionally played with ChaiYeShenLe, AMEI and longdd. They invited me to join HTML as their main player, to which I agreed and joined HTML.
Snoy: GL was a powerful team in times when there were no professional teams around. What I enjoyed the most is my time with DC, 820, Ni, WanBaoLu and XiaoXiongMao. We were great friends and joke around with each other.
Snoy: When I retired, I returned to school. But I soon found out I had no passion for school. Being a professional gamer was one of my dreams, back when I was in junior high there was a CS team which invited me to be a professional gamer. Due to my studies at that time I had to give the idea up. So when EHOME's manager, 71 came and invited me to join their team I quickly seized the chance and went to Beijing to train.
Snoy: Of course they did! But I still went to Beijing without any doubts.
Snoy: A great platform for me to learn about E-Sports.
Snoy: When we won ACG2007
SNoy: Of course we did, we should have won that match, but but because of one wrong gank, we lost it all.
Snoy: Full of passion, full of happiness, full of the energy to succeed. It is also a game that reflects team work.
Snoy: It's become a more fast paced game and more of a spectator game right now. It's becoming more dome-balanced, too. I hope IceFrog can add new and interesting items to the game.
Snoy: The reason is, of course, that Icefrog gave them a buff. Imagine a DPS hero that can farm nicely, but is hard to bring down. BristleBack and Viper are such heroes. To use these two heroes properly, the key is to have a good understanding of the game, a good initiation, and to rush Boots of Speed, Vanguard, Poor Man's Shield and Magic Stick.
Snoy: Sure I do. I gave up my dream and had to start from scratch. Everything changed, but because of my future I must learn to cope with it and adapt.
Snoy: Of course, DotA is like the only game I play, any other games take up too much time. I normally play with friends.
Snoy: Nope. We just play it for fun, that's all.
Snoy: I would, but I usually watch only EHOME's games.
Snoy: Professional, funny, having own ideas and of course having passion!
Snoy: If you still remember a very good player by the name of Snoy, he will thank you from the bottom of his heart. I will post some funny replays for people to watch. Finally, wishing SGAMER will get better and better with time.
