At their first Major this season, EHOME have already secured a top six finish. They will open day two of the Chongqing Major main event today, with a survival series against Evil Geniuses. The winner will make it to top four and will have another shot at playing on the finals day on the big stage of BLOOMAGE Cultural and Sports Center in Chongqing, China.
We had the chance to talk to EHOME’s mid laner, Li “ASD” Zhiwen a day before the action moved to the arena and were curious to find what the team coach, Zhang “xiao8” Ning had to say to him after the heartbreaking loss versus Team Secret in the upper bracket semi-finals and what is EHOME’s goal at this Major. Among other things, we also found out what was the players’ present for Xiao8’s birthday.
