Hey! recently I made a public bet Against Naniwa. I said that i would buy one of his fan's a ticket for This season for every round he makes it past, i am also the guy that told naniwa he needs to quit complaining and start practicing more when he posted about koreans sharing his replays. So if you want to make me pay Please Post in this blog with a Letter of encouragement for naniwa. The best Letter (when i come back and read this the 15th, i'll put up a poll) will recieve a free ticket for GSL 2012 Season 2 on GOMTV to watch the vods on naniwa's RO32 victory.
What: GSL 2012 Season 2 ticket for free Where: This blog Who: Naniwa fans How: Write a letter of encouragement to naniwa and post it here. Why: Because i don't like naniwa, and i made a public bet that i plan on keeping.
Hope Naniwa Fans enjoy this blog, and also, more will come if naniwa keeps winning.
Good luck and let's get those letters!

(Xizor: Very impressed at this I hadn't heard of this bet, but I doubt many people would uphold an internet bet such as this one. You are a gentleman and a scholar!)
Congrats on making the RO16! We don't have enough foreigners OR Protosses in the GSL, let alone foreign Tosses, so keep it up! All of TL will be cheering you on, and our hopes are on your shoulders :D But no pressure! (You've won an MLG, you can handle it, right? ) You've got this man, and we're all on your side. Do us proud, and live up to the Brotoss name! Best of luck, mate: Korea must be tough to live in, but it'll all be worth it in the end! Show the Koreans their throne isn't as stable as they might think!
Cheering you on,

<@Wikt> so you are one of those nega-fans <@Wikt> that hates the company that makes a game and everything they stand for <@Wikt> but still plays the game <@Wikt> (like roughly 30% of blizzard's player base, maybe much more...)
Im your big fan since beta days and enjoying every piece of your game.At last you starting to make impact in biggest Korean Starcraft 2 tournament GSL, which is awesome! At this point, its your tournament to win, mostly protoss players advancing from other groups and everyone knows your PvP is "GODLY".I know you have some problems at finding practice partners in Korea, but this isnt problem at all, because your talents are better than most of Koreans.It's best chance you've ever got, please dont throw it away and show everyone how good you are!
NaNiwa "Me against the world. I try to please everyone, but dissapoint everyone. Another korean domination at MLG,hope everyone are as ashamed as me"
Now, everyone proud of you after your GSL performance!
Please make us proud yet again, and win round of 16/8/4 and final!
Not really a wonder that you arn't a fan of naniwa if you think he needs letters of encouragement.
I tell you how I fell for him though. There was an Interview around MLG dallas where he said that one only has fans as long as one keeps winning. If you aren't winning, nobody cares. Ironically I became a fan of his when he "lost" something. Lost is really a delicate term, as I am talking about the Homestory cup 3, where he lost to Huk in the finals.
In consideration of the Lineup, every other Player probably would have been at least happy. But not nani. Nani was so f*cking pissed. It seemed to not matter that he got second, just like Kimi Räikkönen ones said "second or last, losing is losing" (after another second place behind Schumacher). It just totally won me over, I felt somuch compassion for someone so driven, who really takes his love for what he does seriously. Really, watch how incredible pissed he is after his second place in homestory cup 3 and you know he cares just as much as papatoss.

I think a lot of people look down on you for the way you act sometimes, but I think people just need to accept there are people like you out there, who for one reason or another are more susceptible to being overcome with emotion/ anger during certain times. It has such a negative connotation attached to it that it comes off like I am trying to be insulting but I am not.
Many people wish they could be like white ra and sheth and I'm sure a lot of their GM comes from a personal effort to hold themselves to a higher standard, but I also wouldn't be surprised if part of it is just how their temperament is naturally. Having Naniwa's temperament and still being successful in something so competitive, where its easy even for people that are normally easygoing to start raging and having it affect their play/practice, is actually really impressive.
Not to say Naniwa bears no responsibility, merely it takes that much more effort, will power and self control to keep that level of manner and calm when part of your brain just wants to be angry. In this way I can relate to Naniwa, and that's why I hope he continues to grow as a player, he's already an inspiration in that he's succeeded competitively but if he can over come his dispositions I think he'd reach a new level. I don't claim to know if Naniwa actually wants to change or if he ever will It's possible that the frustration he feels is a motivator for him.
I do know one thing though, if disrespect for the times he's "BM" is due, then respect for him able to still play at such a level despite being a rager is due too.
Keep up the fight!

Of course it's hard. It's supposed to be hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. Hard is what makes it great.

If you guys want him to read them, mass tweet it at him. I'm sure most pros don't read general comments and stuff about them (LR threads), but I imagine they still read fanclubs (IdrA reads his) and stuff that are specifically about them.
