Doinb has been streaming for over 2520 hours, and he is still going strong. His dedication to the game is beyond belief, but it’s his work ethic that makes him stand out from other players.
Doinb is a popular streamer on Twitch. He is known for his insane work ethic and dedication to the game. In 2020, he has streamed 2520 hours of content.
With the LPL finals between FPX and EDG coming up tomorrow, I wanted to highlight Doinb’s dedication and work ethic, which undoubtedly contributed to him being the first three-time MVP in the LPL this split, and perhaps the greatest midlaner in the world right now. Even within the community, he’s renowned for being a very diligent player, and that, unlike others like Rookie, who are mechanically excellent, he utilizes “the intellect to play the game.”
In game, Doinb not only shoots calls (though he claims to do so less now, and he’s started passing more of these responsibilities to Tian and Crisp in case he leaves one day, and the team isn’t completely reliant on him), but he also translates for Nuguri (not often, judging by the snippets from the comms, but the more difficult stuff I assume) and tracks summoner spells, all while lanin is away.
His streaming schedule is as follows: (remember this is on top of nearly 2 bo3s a week during the season for 8-9 weeks, which occasionally includes travelling and staying overnight at a different city for matches)
- During the regular season, he broadcasts soloq from 10pm to 3/4am every day (unless after his match and on days when he needs to travel); during the playoffs, he streams even longer, sometimes finishing at 5.30am (except the day before, where they have midnight scrims). In reality, following the playoff match versus WE, he streamed and, coincidentally, encountered Shanks in soloq.
- Occasionally co-streams the two hours between scrim blocks (and examines the game in relative depth for the average viewer, despite the fact that it’s a running joke that he always picks the wrong team to win during the draft).
- DoinB even streams soloq during the off season and between splits, and his off days; according to this he streamed 339 days last year, amounting to 2520 hours. (Although he got knocked out early during the summer playoffs and didn’t go to worlds, it’s still insane) In 2019, (having attended worlds) he streamed 2081 hours across 270 days
- His energy must be crazy since it’s after a day of scrims? He’s also constantly chatting and high energy every single time (as you’d anticipate, and as you’d see in any footage of his stream you would watch).
Here are a handful of the things he’s said about why he does what he does, which demonstrate his commitment to the game I’ve translated:
He spoke about why he practices so much on stream 3 days ago.
Chat: Aren’t you exhausted from your lack of sleep?
B: What are you doing? “I’m in good shape. It’s nothing new to me. I don’t give a damn whether I’m exhausted or not. This is how I see it: if I sleep an hour or two less now, it may help our performance, but when I retire and want to sleep 12 hours, no one will notice, right? Maybe, just maybe, my wife will chastise me. I won’t be able to return to the professional game once I retire. I don’t want to leave any unresolved issues. If I actually sleep an hour or two more now and don’t win a championship or have excellent results, I won’t be able to come back at that point, even if I wanted to. You can’t, even if you wanted to. You can’t go back in time. Because your professional career is so brief, all you can do now is work hard.”
Chat: Wouldn’t your form/play be affected if you slept this little?
B: What are you doing? “This is also a possibility. Perhaps I’m already used to it.”
During the final playoffs match, FPX versus WE, when FPX qualified for worlds, a Chinese post-match interview took place:
“I am particularly enthusiastic about this game, I adore this game,” he said when asked why his current form has been so excellent. Maybe every professional player is like this, but I adore this game. I’ve been playing for a long time and still believe this is the most enjoyable, the greatest game to play… Also, I’m having a dream. My performances were not great when I initially started playing professionally, and I didn’t make it to Worlds until 2019, when I won the title. Last year, we came up short by such a little margin, and it was very terrible for myself and everyone else because we all felt we could have done better, and we didn’t expect it to be that bad. I set a modest objective for myself at the start of this year: no matter what, I had to get to Worlds, and once there, I had to win the title. This was the modest objective I set for myself. And we succeeded… Hopefully, we’ll be able to win two more titles as a result of this.
On playing Akali almost every day for four months, which shocked many people since he had never been known to play hypercarries before.
“At the time, many claimed DoinB couldn’t play Akali, that Akali should be retired, and that this guy shouldn’t be playing Akali. If you are unable to play it, abandon it in favor of Galio or Twisted Fate. But I didn’t give up at the time; I practiced continuously for four months and didn’t give up, and the results were positive. Professional athletes are unable to quit up under any circumstances.”
Getting Rid of RNG and Cryin:
“I was furious after the spring finals, particularly furious. At the moment, I was thinking that the next time I saw Cryin, I didn’t want to lose to RNG again, and I certainly didn’t want to lose to the player Cryin. As a result, after the finals, I watched every single one of his matches, including his proviews and. I kept an eye on them all, so I knew when Cryin would go roam and assist his friends, so I tracked him down and killed him solo right away. ” Perfection.
He once said that he needs to work even harder each year in order to compete with the younger players:
“In 2018, I would sleep for 7-8 hours, but in 2019, I would sleep for 30 minutes less and play one more game. In 2020, I’ll rest one hour less, and in 2021, one and a half hours less, so I may play one more, two more, three more, and in a year, I’ll have played 300,400…1000 more champions.”
Part of an LPL documentary shot during last year’s summer break, which truly moved me, particularly the final statement.
“This has never been done before by any team. No one has hit a grand slam in the last 10 years. I’d want to. That is why I have persevered to this point. Likewise, next year. When people ask whether I’m exhausted, I tell them that I am. But… ”
“A professional athlete’s career is much too brief. You may take a break after winning a championship or retire and become a streamer, but why do I still want to play? It’s just that I want to play. There’s no other explanation. This is why I began. Like every other gamer, I hope not to forget… This is the thing I adore, the thing I enjoy the most.
“I tell myself this every day when I wake up. Remind myself, you haven’t entered realms yet, and you want to sleep for another 30 minutes, do you have the right?”
Here’s some intriguing information:
- He has been giving away 500RMB (77USD) to his chat for every soloq game he loses for the last two months, and he loses around 6 games each day.
- He and LWX are arguably the only LPL players that play on the Chinese super server rather than the Korean server, which he claims has helped him a lot with laning and is far more enjoyable to play than the Korean server.
- He claims that Chovy and Knight are the most difficult to lane against in his whole career, and that while he’s laning against them, he can’t think about anything else or he’ll be completely destroyed. He also watches a lot of their proviews – in fact, he claims that he learnt his Irelia by watching Chovy’s soloq and build, despite the fact that Chovy no longer uses the build or max W. (DoinB jokes that a maxed W irelia fits him better since it’s easier to miss Q R and E while still being able to block damage for your teammates.)
- He praised Humanoid a lot at MSI, and even mentioned that he felt Humanoid was very excellent at the moment, even during S9 worlds. He also said that he was arguably the greatest midfielder in Europe, despite the fact that, owing to his busy schedule, he does not attend any LEC games.
- Has always emphasized that you should never criticize people in scrims, tournaments, or even soloq, but rather look at what you did wrong first (unless there are brothers in soloq)
- What if the meta doesn’t suit you at worlds? “I’m telling you, this is truly an excuse,” DoinB says. This is something that fans and the crowd may say, but as a professional athlete, you cannot say. You may say this about other teams, but you can’t use it as an excuse for yourself.”
- After witnessing how much better Caps’ numbers were after he shaved his hair compared to when he didn’t, he stated he wanted to do the same if their results were bad, but his wife would definitely say no.
- In soloq, I recently claimed that Rammus into Irelia was a solid matchup, and Irelia won. (There’s a joke going around that Cryin chooses Rammus in soloq anytime he wants to run anything down.)
Note: I don’t believe this is healthy or necessary to become the greatest, but I simply wanted to demonstrate that his progress this year wasn’t easy, and it’s incredible how he’s kept it up for so long, and if he wins, he certainly deserves it (especially it looked like in some games he was the only one playing, and the many complications FPX has gone through this year)
