Han Yi Ying, AKA “MisS”, a former Warcraft 3 pro-gamer and a popular gaming TV host in China, decides to follow her dream of living the life of a pro-gamer by signing with StarTale. She becomes the first female foreigner to be signed by a Korean professional gaming team and is StarTale’s second Starcraft 2 female pro-gamer along with StarTale Aphrodite.
In a TeamLiquid translation from ThisGame, it appears that StarTale.Rainbow’s “mission” when he went to the ZOWIE DIVINA female Starcraft 2 tournament last year wasn’t just to support his girlfriend Aphrodite (eventual winner of the said event). The former also had an “under the table” motive and that being to test the skills of a female e-sports TV host which back then, they only knew as “being a very popular TV host”.
And a test MiSs got and to her ecstasy, she passed. And with that, this she said, “Lots of people told me that I am stupid for giving up my job as a tv hostess to become a computer player, but how often do you get a chance to follow your dream?” said Yiying ”miss” Han, “When I got informed of this test to become a member of StarTale I was really nervous, just to get the opportunity is a dream come true. When I was told I could become a part of StarTale, it was the happiest day of my life, I still can’t believe it! I will do my best every day, in every game. This is my dream come true.”
Will she be another solid contender in the fierce world of Starcraft 2 pro-gaming? Or will she be just another flower among the thorns like Linda “Pikachu” Liao? What do you think?
