Taipei, Oct. 11 (CNA) Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said Sunday the most exciting thing about watching an international video game competition is when Taiwanese teams beat other countries’, and “whatever needs to be done to finish off Korea, I’d be more than happy to do.”
Ko made his remarks while addressing a gathering of some 500 people, mostly youngsters, who were enjoying a live broadcast from Paris of competitions between Taiwanese and other teams in the 2015 World Championship of League of Legends (LoL) hosted by Riot Games of the United States.
