Please tell us how your new roster was formed. After the split with the other Kingsurf teams, are there any changes you would like to share? What is behind the “New Generation” Kingsurf?
In fact, the KS team itself has never broken up. We reorganized the team by changing the manager and nicknames of all the players. The team after reorganization is called “New Generation KS”, which represents a new milestone. The team will start all over again as a beginner with a tireless fighting spirit.

How did it feel to be the champion of your first tournament, David vs Goliath, as a new team?
I would say we were in luck. Nevertheless, all the players gave their best and the overall performance in the tournament was satisfactory. The team will keep it up.

How did you prepare for the competition? Which teams did you train with often? How do you test new strategies before a tournament? Do you watch replays?
Other than team training, which is carried out three to four times per week, players do individual training frequently to refine their skills. In order to pinpoint their own weaknesses, they watch their own replays from time to time. No specific strategies have been planned before the tournament, instead, the players take a flexible approach according to the circumstances.

Was it very different using the 6.61b map version, as most of the recent and current tournaments are still using 6.59d? Did it change your strategy? Was it more difficult to predict what other teams would do?
The 6.61b map version is used for map control and strategies application, while 6.59d is used for backdoor and
pushlane. No matter which version is being used, hero draft is a crucial factor to decide the result.

Which other tournaments are you currently competing in? Which tournaments will you be joining soon? What about the SMM Grand National DotA Tournament?
The team will take part in all the tournaments that are held in Malaysia, Singapore. The SMM Grand National DotA Tournament is one of them. The team is doing their best to prepare for it.

Would you like to say anything to your fans? Any shout-outs to your friends?
We would like to say thank you for the support that the fans extended to us. To live up to their expectations, we are committed to give our best effort to get the best result in subsequent tournaments. Please give us your continuous support. Thank you.
