With the Penang Esport Festival 2019 Ending , we have arrived for the conclusion with the SOULCALIBUR Asia League Tournament. 575′ Nightmare has swept the stage with its clean 3-0 victory for the second round. We had to have an interview with the Soulcalibur Asia League newest champion!
Let us introduce to you the champion! He is known as 575 but his full name is Lucas Woo. He is originated from Taiwan. 575 has stayed in Malaysia for 6 days and can’t simply resist to try out all sort of local food that Malaysia has to offer. He does’t have any local favourite because all the local foods are quite delightful.
Our champion,575 has been playing Soulcalibur since Soulcalibur V but due to health issues, he couldn’t go travel anywhere. That doesn’t stop him though! This guy has been secretly train himself in his own home. During the Soulcalibur Asia League Tournament,575 was nervous all day,thinking that he might not make it to the next match but surprise surprise he has made it to the final match and bring back the title of Soulcalibur Asia League Champion. Previously, he has attended online tournaments that was held in Taiwan every week. Beside Asia League tournament, he went to Taiwan Major, the Japan Major, EVO Japan and EVO Las Vegas.
575 is unashamed to get some help from professional players from the America. He is trying to master a few mechanics. 575 have been experimenting a few playstyle for different opponents because of different match up. He first would test the opponents to see the reaction of certain moves that he used. Then, he would decide if he were to continue to use with that strategy so this way continue to adapt to his opponents.
We asked his favorite character to play as and it is to no surprise that he chooses his trusty ol’ Nightmare. However, his favourite character design wise is Amy. His biggest rival is Cipher from Taiwan but for this particular tournament is Baron, his toughest opponent yet.
For the new players that is interested to be a fighting esport player, here is a strand of wisdom from 575 to you guys. Before joining in a tournament, you need to do your homework first. You need to learn your matchups and everything like that. Otherwise, you come to the tournament and you learn nothing so once you hit that certain level, you participate in a tournament and you will learn a lot. Last word from 575 is that he will continue to improve step by step. He wants to give his appreciation to say thank you for those that supported his back.
