I am a 20-year BW player originally from China. I live in the East coast of US now.
I am trying to host a few matches of elite non-Korean players vs. Chinese players, with a price pool of each match ranging from $100 to $200.
It has been a while since the last time we saw Chinese players vs. non-Korean players (the last one I can remember is KOH, where F91 defeated several others). Let me give you a little background of BW in China. Since 2016, there were several national tournaments sponsored by Heatfighter, a former gosu, and a billionaire. Many Korean ex-pros had visited China for these matches, including Movie, Bisu, and Flash. There is also a group of ex-pros who play with Chinese players every day. Currently, there is a 2x2 tournament sponsored by Heatfighter which include several Korean ex-pros, such as Jaehoon, Soulkey, Best, etc.
There is a famous host, “Sanpao”, who has been live streaming BW every night on DouyuTV (a platform similar to Twitch, but at least 50+ times larger). Many BW fans sponsor matches between two players and Sanpao would stream and comment. Normally the price for BO3 is ~$50 and BO5 is ~$70.
I am looking for several elite non-Korean 1x1 players. Ideally, players should be able to maintain at least 2,100 points on BN Asia or A on Iccup, as the Chinese opponents are 2,200 to 2,400 points. If you are interested, please reply to this post, or send me a message on BN. My ID is Uncletoss, and if I’m not online you can contact hwlm.legend (aka yg.legend on Iccup). Please let me know how strong you are. I will provide you with an account of BN China and we can test the connection before the match. If the speed is OK, then we have a match. I am trying to arrange a few matches for the Thanksgiving weekend. The price I am considering is $100 for a BO3 (winner $75, loser $25). But if I can get some really strong players, I am willing to increase the price to $200 (winner $150, loser $50) for a BO5. I can send price via PayPal or Venmo.
If we can get a few matches played without lag, then I would like to host some 2x2 matches as well. And once the sponsors in China knew about non-Korean gosu better, I’m sure they will be willing to sponsor more matches.
