I’m not a professional translator, so if some part of the translation seemed awkward I will apologize here right now. Also the original version is a big chunk of words in one block, so I made the edit to paragraph the text to make the reading easier.
By the way, the main body is actually uploaded as screenshots/images, probably because of the word limit of a single post.

I'm responding to this incident only once, to fulfill my part in maintaining the purity of the greater environment of e-sports scene.
(Main body starts from here, above is the short caption)
Today I will spend some time to write about how I view the whole incident, it might be a little long so feel free to grab a cup of drink.
First, I felt honored to be invited to the first international Starcraft: Remastered event. Even though I have left the professional Starcraft scene for 7 years I still occasionally watch Korean Starcraft matches.
I get to know that my opponent is the European representative Draco, the Korean representative Larva and another player from the American qualifiers. My level of play on BattleNet is around 2700 mmr, with a winning percentage of 50%. Draco's mmr is quite close to me. Then what about Larva's mmr? Around 3200-3300 mmr. Those who know Starcraft or watch competitions should see that it is impossible for me to defeat Larva in a match under a bo3 or bo5 setting, by simply considering (the difference in skill of) the marco and unit management aspect of the game one can see there doesn’t exist any chance. And since Starcraft is such a developed game that those strategies that people called cheese/ surprise combos are basically impossible to have a practical winning chance too. So during preparation I specialized for pvp, hoping to defeat Draco (at least).
I've already stated my goal is to achieve 2nd place in interviews too. Since beyond Korea there really isn't any progamer left in real, serious manner that make their living off Broodwar. Under this context you can see that on the psychological level I accept and was ready for my defeat (against Larva), though I did not realize that even Larva's Terran were so good that he can not only defeat me easily but throw nukes. But I didn't think of that much, for that is the difference of skill here. So in the finals during the first match when I saw him killing off one of his own workers while scouting I (even) smiled and asked exactly how many drones he killed off, one or two? This should tell you that I don't care about what kind of showboat he did to me in the game. I know a Korean zerg player with the handle called jatgirl. He can kill off a worker at the start of the game and still defeat me hands down. So when Larva killed off one of his workers at the 9th worker timing of course he can continue on and beat me easily. I've positioned myself in such a mindset already, so what more do you (people) ask of me?
I wonder what exactly is on your(/Larva's) mind when you layback during a match and place your feet on the keyboard? Some is saying that this is a show game, so this is not a problem. First the one who received the insult is not you. Second a lot of you standby commenters never ever participated in a single match and some didn't even watch the live stream. On what grounds do you think you have the right to criticize me, claiming that you can accept such behaviors and thus so should I? I believe that every player who have been once a pro cannot accept such humiliation. If one is to twist all this into a “showthing” nevertheless, then why is there no one asking me about whether I willingly accept all this (beforehand)?
After the WCG 2010 I ended my progaming career and left Broodwar. 2 years later the Korean pros transitioned to Starcraft 2 and (only until) now Korean Broodwar reentered people's horizon. This is the result of striving effort of persistent progamers who stick to this game throughout this whole time. Larva is one of these newcomers who made it in this sub era of Starcraft through his own endeavors. When I chat with many of my friends I said that the one who is going to take down Flash would be him or effort. The meteoric rise of his competitive skill is the result of his hard work. To stream 24 hours, and even keeping his stream on while asleep is something I greatly admire. Whether it's the current top players or those famed players of the past he may be the only one who achieved his success mainly all by himself, and that is something very hard to do.
But have you(/Larva) learned nothing from your seniors at SKT, boxer, gorush etc, all of them great example of being a progamer -- you gained nothing out of them? Players like flash, bisu, movie that I've met last year, and jatgirl who I encountered online are all so humble and polite. Is Kespa gone nowadays? Do they not hold Player Conduct Conference (1) anymore? If you attend a competition aboard you are the representitive of South Korea. You still think you have not brought shame to the name of Korean esports? Broodwar is the world's first esport. 20 years of Broodwar you are the first one to act so despicable. So do you think I would be able to accept your apology? Unless one day you are able to place your feet on the keyboard the whole game and defeat me nonetheless I will not be accepting this as just another part of the show.
(1) I may be wrong about the exact correct English name of this one, but it seems that Luo Xian is referring to an event that Kespa hold to teach their players general code of conduct, proper behaviors etc of being a progamer.
