AMA with Pine - Ask Anything and Win Free Blizzard Balance!

125

Greetings, gamers!


So many stars have created countless thrilling highlights in the Overwatch League, where only the best out of best come together. The tanks who did not hesitate to crash the enemies with their bodies, Zenyatta taking down enemy DPS with godly aim, and Mercy turning the game around with her resurrects, et cetera; there’ve been a whole lot of exciting moments.


The most amazing ones would have to be the plays made by DPS players. Tracer’s dazzling moves, Widowmaker’s headshots, and McCree’s incredible performance were the best parts of the Stage 1.


Well, what Pine from NYXL did certainly stood out in this aspect; the way he got triple and quadra kills all by himself in Control maps surely had more impact than any other players. Any team that has Pine won’t be able to regard him just as a sub.


Many Overwatch fans must be curious about Pine’s whereabouts since he has mostly played in only Control maps- so here is an AMA Inven Global prepared with Pine (Do-Hyeon Kim)!

 


The AMA with Pine will start on February 19th 6:30 PM PST (9:30 PM EST, 11:30 AM KST) in the comment section below this post and will be held live for about 2 hours. The answers to all questions will be answered by Pine himself, so feel free to ask him anything you wanted to know about him! Literally, ask him anything, from his gameplay to anything personal like his hobbies.


Of course, feel free to leave questions before the live AMA starts since Pine will be answering them as well!

 


Also, we’ll be giving out free 20$ Blizzard Balance codes to 10 random people who take part in our AMA!


Thank you so much for your interest and support for Pine and Overwatch <3

      First, you have to be 100% sure that this is the job that you want. Being a pro is not easy. It will be harder than you thought it would be, and you have to be very determined.

    1. Is there any reason why you picked “Pine” as your ign?

    2. Is there a hero that you’re comfortable with playing but can’t play it on stage?

    3. What is the difference between duoing with Libero & Saebyeolbe? Do you have to change playstyle to try to match theirs?

    4. In your opinion, the best hitscan player besides you?

    All the best in Stage 2!!

    Hello, Pine!

    2. How much do you think your TF2 experience has helped you in OW?

    3. What's your favorite thing you've discovered in America?


    Thanks for your time!

    4. Do you miss living in South Korea?

    5. What will your team do to ensure that you guys will win the stage 2 title matches?

    Do you use ur fingers when you aim? I aim with my arm and wrist as well. However, I am using my fingers when I do some small-flicks and I wonder if it's ok. Sometimes I feel my aim lacks consistency because of this habit.
