Overwatch

AMA with Saebyeolbe - Ask Us Anything and Win FREE Blizzard Balance!

225

Greetings, this is Inven Global.


The Overwatch World Cup 2017 ended with South Korea’s victory, and now fans are waiting for the Overwatch League.


To contribute to the excitement, we have prepared an event for Overwatch fans: an AMA with an Overwatch pro who played for South Korea at the Overwatch World Cup and will be playing at the Overwatch League! Inven Global is holding this AMA so that the Overwatch fans can have a chance to directly communicate with professional gamers.


The 8th pro gamer we invited is Jong-yeol "Saebyeolbe" Park, one of the pros who played for South Korea, and the DPS for New York Excelsior.

 


Saebyeolbe debuted as a pro in the Overwatch APEX Season 1. As a DPS for LW Blue, he led the team to victory in the IEM and became one of the best DPS players in Korea. LW Blue won third place in the Overwatch APEX Season 2, and Saebyeolbe joined team South Korea for the Overwatch World Cup 2017. In the Overwatch World Cup, Saebyeolbe once again proved himself as the best Tracer in the world. 


We will be holding a live AMA via our comment section at the bottom of this article, starting from November 12th, 22:00 PDT (November 13th, 14:00 KST). Saebyeolbe will be reading all your questions from the comment section, and he will personally answer them, so feel free to ask all you want! Anything is okay- from Saebyeolbe’s gameplay to personal questions regarding hobbies! He will also be answering your questions after the live AMA, so feel free to leave questions and comments below right now!


Also, we are holding two more AMA sessions for two more players from team South Korea, Dong-gyu "Mano" Kim (from November 13th 20:00) and Yeon-ho “Fl0w3r” Hwang (from November 13th 22:00). The links to Mano’s AMA and Fl0w3r’s AMA are:


AMA with Mano - Ask Us Anything and Win Free Blizzard Balance!

AMA with Fl0w3r - Ask Us Anything and Win Free Blizzard Balance!

 

 

We will be giving $20-worth Blizzard Balance to 5 randomly selected people who participate in the AMA event. We are holding the same event for the AMA sessions for Saebyeolbe and Fl0w3r, and hope that many Overwatch fans will join in on asking the pros questions and win free Blizzard Balance!


※ The AMA with Saebyeolbe is for people from all around the world, and the answers will be given to him in English. We would appreciate that you leave comments in English via Google Translator for those who would like to check them out.

    It's always delight to watch you on stream or other broadcast. A lot of Korean players look very shy when they are facing the camera. What make you so confident and laid-back in front of huge crowd?

    Hello Saebyeolbe!

    Thank you for doing this and congrats on your win in the World Cup.
    You mentioned in one of your interviews you'd like to become a teacher in the future so you could help students who have struggles in their lives. What would be your first and most important advice to those students?

    Good luck in OWL. Saebyeolbe fighting!

    • 0

      NYXL_Saebyeolbe

      @Mafirva

      As a Korean, Korean people tend to be caught up too much in competitions, and I'd want to tell these students not to get caught up in competition that other people forced them to; I have experienced the hardship myself, so that's what I'd like to tell them in future!

      I'd like to tell them they shouldn't have any fantasies about it- we don't get to play games all the time, and not only happy things happen for us. But even so, if they'd like to become pro gamers, they will get what they want as long as they try hard!

    Overwatch is certainly a game that cannot be expected and predictable so there are times where you meet failures. What is your best tip or suggestion in taking care of your mental?
    • 0

      NYXL_Saebyeolbe

      @Yeanahwang You don't have to necessarily take care of your mental if you play a game that you don't regret or you're satisfied with. Or at least, that's what it is like for me. But when we didn't make it to the APEX finals (in season 2), I did cry even though I didn't regret anything... T^T

      I'm not the best Tracer in the world, but I try to think how I can annoy my opponents with my Tracer- and once I succeed in doing so, this means that we won. But this kind of playing style is very dangerous, I'd like to add!

    Recently, you played tracer mainly, but are you still other heroes? The New York team had a break from playing for a while. Was that helpful or was it negative? e-Sports is also important in physical fitness, do you usually exercise? What kind of exercise do you usually do?

    • 0

      NYXL_Saebyeolbe

      @melissa Hanzo is love <3
      And the result at OWL will tell if that break was helpful or not. Back in high school, I was in the bowling club and I think I've been exercising as much as I did back then! Which is usually fitness training etc.

    Hello, Saebyeolbe-nim, or should I just say "ByeolHa!~"? You were incredible at World Cup, I've never seen such a dominant Tracer-play. I want to ask a couple of questions:

    1) Which sound does Ddol Ddol make?

    2) Are you going to stream at least once before OWL Pre-Season event? I promise, I'm not gonna bother you with my videos this time ;)

    3) Will you try to make a more consistent streaming schedule when the League starts?

    4) During one of the streams before Blizzcon, there was a visitor in your broadcast chat, a pro-gamer. He was constantly calling you a "noob". How did it feel to show him who is really noob?


    Wishing you to be successful in your future tournaments and I'll always cheer for you and NYXL! Keep being such a cool, handsome and cheerfull guy. I also really hope that you'll be able to stream more often. We (all your fans) really miss you! byeolbeANG byeolbeBbb

      First of all, thank you for making 'Hanzo is love <3'

      1) Ddol ddol makes sounds like a little dog.

      2&3) I promise that I stream often and I don't mind if you bother me with your videos >.<

      4) I wondered, 'why'd he have higher salary than I do??' LOL XD (P.S: Sinatraa)


      I'll make my fans champion's fans- this I promise! (^' '^)★

    Hello Saebyeolbe! ♡ I wanted to know why you chose the name Saebyeolbe as your gamer tag and what significance it has to you :) It's a very poetic name so I was curious^^ Also, is there any reason why you blow on your fingers at the end of a round? Is it because you were on fire from playing so well and you needed to cool down? ㅋㅋ Much love from LA!

      I take walk in early morning and I love seeing the meteors, which can be translated to 'Star rain' (Byeolbe).

      And my fingers tend to sweat a lot, and it's a habit from bowling!
