Gamers score a historic victory (P1)
江苏省南菁高级中学  范克强
 
I. Pre-reading: brain-storming   
Do you like playing computer games, such as League of Legends (LOL), Honor of Kings?
Have you ever thought about winning the League of Legends (LOL) World Championship? 
A Brief Introduction to the League of Legends and Invictus Gaming
  League of Legends ( LoL) is a multiplayer online battle arena video game. In League of Legends, players assume the role of an unseen “summoner” that controls a “champion” with unique abilities and battle against a team of other players or computer-controlled champions. The goal is usually to destroy the opposing team’s “nexus”, a structure that lies at the heart of a base protected by defensive structures, although other distinct game modes exist as well. 
  Invictus Gaming (IG) is a multi-game e-sports organization founded in 2011 in China. They are primarily known for their Dota 2, League of Legends, and StarCraft II teams. IG’s Dota squad won The International 2012. Their League of Legends  team won the 2018 League of Legends World Championship.
 
II. While-reading  
Fast reading
Read the article and answer the following questions:
1. What’s the main idea of the passage? 
The passage discusses the fact that IG has scored a historic victory and also misunderstandings about games and gamers.
2. Why was the victory historic? And how can we understand the topic Games score a historic victory?
For gaming fans, it was the first time that a Chinese team had won a world championship in the league. 
For non-gamers, the event shattered an invisible wall standing between gaming fans and the rest of the world.
3. What were the misunderstandings about video games and gamers?
We thought video games were just like Mario jumping around and collecting coins or soldiers holding guns and killing enemies. 
We thought video gamers were overweight nerds living in their parents’ basement with poor personal hygiene. 
4. What are video games and gamers like?
Video games are not just for entertainment. Instead, they require teamwork, strategy and the ability to make decisions quickly considering the team’s best interest. 
 Gamers are as passionate young men who are professional at their jobs and experience pain and pressure as normal people do.
