Professional esports scene consists mostly of young players who find it hard to cope with intensive practice and different types of emotional challenges, like fame and high expectations. Sometimes it leads to unfortunate incidents, soiling the reputations of the players and their teams.
Liu "Sylar" Jiajun from Team Aster and Tang "CatYou" Xiaolei from Mr Game Boy recently lost a ranked match together which led to a heated exchange.
Here is the translation:
Sylar: Tier-4 moron
Sylar: You are shaming yourself!
CatYou: Low-MMR dog. Why are you barking?
CatYou: Can't even get into top100
CatYou: Why are you even going f***ing pro?
As you can tell from the image, it leaked on Weibo.
Currently, CatYou occupies 64th place in the Chinese solo MMR rating, and he implies that Sylar, whose team hasn’t been performing well during the last two Majors, isn’t as skilled.
Both players must have been feeling the heat of a lost game, as they started to attack one another personally. The story must be especially painful for Team Aster, whose owner Xu "BurNIng" Zhilei (on the picture above) publicly apologized to the community for lousy performance after the Chongqing Major. Having his player involved in such a drama is the last thing BurNIng wants right now.
