    Anyone watching this? I am only 15minutes into the drama and I am so impressed but the CGI.. They really spent a lot and the effort placed in making the gaming world is impressive wow. First time seeing this in cdramas and funny that I am saying this but, the first match made me so excited because of how intense it is..

    I only watched two episodes. It’s taking it rather slow and inserting drama original scenes to pre-established the different teams rather than introduce them over time, rather wise decision I’d say. There’s more focus on real life than game than I expected, but that’s understandable considering the amount of CGI the game scenes need. They fused few minor characters together, which is fair and makes the characters less one dimensional, actually.

    I like the gaming footage, more the environment than the avatars, it’s all around lot better than I expected. I keep thinking how much money they burnt every time the game comes on. Also slightly worried about pacing, the anime is paced faster than this and it only covered 1/10 in what amounts to 6 episodes here. I think it’s doable by simplifying lot of the gaming stuff, especially the earlier bits, we’ll see. Fingers cross that there’ll be no romance, I don’t have time for romance in this story, please. They added Ye Xiu being clueless, it’s pretty cute and does make him less perfect-y, humanise him so he’s not just the overpowered boss of Glory.

    My biggest impression is, OMG Chen Guo, you are so goddamn rich! Look at that giant richard simmons internet cafe and all those figurines omg. Also, drama why is the internet cafe so bright and large, I was imagining small and dingy, ok? Jia Shi’s interior design looks like a space ship.

    Binge watched all 8 episodes and honestly, I have nothing to complain haha! It’s good & intense!!! I had such low expectations for this because it’s a gaming drama but it’s good! Unlike the one in Love O2O, the gaming world in this drama is quite impressive. I loved the anime because of how intense and impressive the gaming scenes are because of Ye Qiu, and this drama is giving it to me 🙂 Can’t wait for the other episodes!

    I must seriously praise YY’s acting here, I love his acting as Ye Qiu. It made me believe he is Ye Qiu, and the casting for the rest is quite good too. All their acting skills are there! Loving this drama so far!
    I think the pacing is quite good too though, not draggy at all, all the scenes are exactly like those in the anime, can’t wait for Ye Qiu to form his own team!!

    Binge watch till episode5 last night. Its pretty good. I haven’t like Yangyang in anything else since love 020 so I’m rather relieved I can watch him properly in a drama. First time I see him as a character and not as himself. Love the gaming world. Chi pretty good. I’ve read so many e sport related books it’s good to finally see a good representation of one. I won’t mind if there is no romance too….though I guess it’s not likely. Makes me tempted to watch the anime…But if the anime is better I’ll watch after the shows ends 😂

    I totally loved it,i didn’t intended to watch it even after it aired as i was not a fan of Yang Yang,i was of the minority that wasn’t impressed by him at all and even if he is handsome it didn’t move me at all(unlike so many even after his hit drama)…I’m not a gamer nor do i have knowledge about the sport etc but out of boredom after installing the app on my tablet found the drama and gave it a try to see if the plot would be fun and ended up binging almost 30 eps or more in one go because it was just that good for me…I can now say i became a fan of Yang Yang and that Ye Xiu/Ye Qio is totally my favorite character of his by far…Ye Xiu was such an intresting character that was never boring and i can say i was totally invested in his journey…I loved all the side characters and was sad that the drama wasn’t longer as i even felt 40 eps were just not enough to explore so many side stories and Xing Xin team,i would have loved to see even more about the members as i loved them..I liked them all,they were such a fun and full of characters team…At the end of the story i actually realized i had a crush on Lao Wei jajja…I also liked how all the other players from the other teams,especially their captains had such great admiratipn and looked up to Ye Xiu and all of them were actually friends outside the competition…The bounding and friendships were such a strong point of this drama that i apreciated that there were no random romance forced just to bring fans…The CGI was amazing,never felt bord watching the game and actually was sad that Glory didn’t exist in real life,looked sooo good…Loved the OST as well,very well fitted..
    In some words:I LOVED IT!!! Became Yang Yang’s thanks to this drama and sad it was too short!
