A Vietnamese caster who tried to speak in English while covering a match in the ongoing World Electronic Sports Games (WESG) is winning praises online.
The tournament, based in Shanghai and organized by AliSports, is currently holding its 2017 Grand Final, which pits the best national teams and players of “CS:GO,” “Dota 2,” “StarCraft 2” and “Hearthstone” from all over the world.
