Ye Xiu is one of the elite top players of the game Glory. Due to a series of events, he is forced to take on a job managing an internet cafe after being expelled from his professional team. But Ye Xiu is not a quitter, so armed with his years of gaming experience, a new identity, a partially finished secret weapon and LOTS of guts, he goes all out to claw his way back up to the top in the quest for what else? Glory. After all, no guts no glory right?

  1. Life action not cool. You need to mix both in gaming and realty. Guess have to wait how they do it.

  6. I really like the idea of having a drama about professional gamers and the industry of gaming. It's a good premise for manga too, and I suspect there're published titles already (though I don't know of any.) It's insanely tough and competitive but also fabulously rewarding for those who make it.

    The thing is...I rather prefer the main character as someone novice, a newbie with hidden talent who stumbles in and gives us a ground-level view of the field. Let the story be about his triumph over the many difficulties in mastering the game, learning about rules and politics, and overcoming the freakish friends and rivals of the business. That would be exciting to watch.

    Instead, you put idols in all the roles acting cool and tough, and the drama functions more like a catwalk for the models to strut around like they own the place. It's one glamour shot after another like the pages of a fashion magazine.

    I don't know. Is realism such a bad thing?
