iG.Ferrari_430: I believe in our skill
posted by Jaywalker, 299 days agoFei Chi 'Ferrari_430' Luo is known for his agressive yet elegant plays on heroes such as Windrunner, Rubick, and Invoker. 430 currently plays for Invictus Gaming, and despite the team focusing on both DotA and Dota 2, the team has been improving immensely in their performances in both games, dominating in the ACE DotA League and performing well in It's Gosu Monthly Madness Asia.
In an interview with It's Gosu, 430 talks about his history as a competitive player, the transition to Dota 2, his thoughts on The International 2012, and more. Below are some questions from the interview:
You will also be playing in an environment that you are not very familiar with as the public will most likely cheer for western teams. Will the lack of support from your fans during the event have any impact on your results?
I do not think so. I believe in our skill.
Considering that western teams only play Dota 2, how good do you think Chinese teams will do at the event?
The five teams that will go to The International 2 play both DotA and Dota 2 and I think this is our biggest disadvantage compared to the western teams. I still hope we can win the tournament.
A lot of prediction threads have been made in the western community and people seem to see Natus Vincere, Team Zenith or mTw at top of the ranking. Do you think that Chinese teams will do better than the first International?
Last time we did not pay much attention to the tournament except EHOME because we did not exactly know how much money there was and there were some big tournaments at the same time. We did not practice much Dota 2 except EHOME. We only practiced for one week just before the tournament. Furthermore, the internet condition is very bad, about 300~500ms ping made it very hard to practice. But this time, I think all the Chinese teams are well prepared, of course we will have better results than last year.
