The TI4 champion and legendary captain xiao8 shared his opinion on the competitive Dota 2 scene in China: Tier 1 players have a poor attitude.
Zhang "xiao8" Ning is undoubtedly one of the best Dota 2 captains - not only in China, but in the entire world. He achieved many victories during his career, and took part in all The International tournaments with optimal results.
- TI1: 5-6th
- TI2: 3rd
- TI3: 9-12th
- TI4: 1st
- TI5: 3rd
- TI6: 9-12th
He ended his professional career, and in 2017 only participated in a handful of Chinese qualifiers: D2AC 2017, Kiev Major, and TI7.
Now, xiao8 is dedicating most of his time to family, but he loves Dota and is concerned about the current situation of the Chinese scene.
Below, a rough translation of his post on Weibo.
