Interview with LGD.Lin: I have to Practice Shadow Fiend Hard
SCNTV talked to LGD’s mid solo player Ziyang 'Lin' Xu before the Sina solo tournament. After Ning “xiao8” Zhang departure, no matter Yao “Maybe” Lu or Peng “Icy” Wang couldn’t create team chemistry in LGD. Lin felt much pressure after he joined this Chinese powerhouse, but he is still glad to get this opportunity and thanks for his teammates’ trust.
First of all, introduce yourself. People might not be too familiar with you.
Hello everyone! I am LGD.Lin. I played for Rsnake before, but I retied since some personal issues. Now I am back to Dota 2 scene and joining LGD. I hope I can perform well and live up to your expectations.
Returning professional secne after finishing your study, and joining one of the Chinese powerhouse LGD. How do you feel now?
I am astonished since I used to play support. LGD gave this important position to me, so I would like to thank to my teammates for trusting me.
From Support to Mid Solo, what do you think is the improvement in your personal skills?
My laning skill is better. I used to play support in the professional match, even though I’ve played mid solo in pubs. I am not accustomed to this role at the beginning. Through constant practice, laning in the pubs is not a problem anymore.
Is this your first solo competition? Have you watched other solo matches?
Yeah, it’s my first solo competition. TI3’s solo matches impress me a lot and I have watched all the games, but I don’t follow other solo games.
As the Chinese old saying goes, a young calf does not fear even a fearsome tiger. As a new solo player, do you feel nervous or fearless?
The participants are famous gods, so I just play with a learning attitude. If I can learn something, that will be awesome.
One of the roles at Sina Solo Tournament is both sides have to use the same hero. What are your favorite hero and most-hated hero?
Shadow Shaman is my favorite; Soloing Shadow Fiend is boring, and I hate it.
I am sorry to tell you that this Solo tournament is mainly with Shadow Fiend.
Oh I have to practice hard
