Overview[edit]

Huang "Xiaoshuai|小帅" XueMing is a Zerg player who lives in Yongzhou(湖南·永州), China. He is currently considered the best Zerg player in China, having reached over 2700 MMR on KR ladder in multiple seasons and 2800 MMR once.

Xiaoshuai is most notable for his unpredictable "500 IQ" playstyle, as he is known to use a different strategy every game in major tournaments to prevent his opponents from analysing and predicting his moves. Xiao is not afraid to pull off extremely unconventional openings that "make absolutely no sense", as long as it could secure him a win. His style heavily focuses on intense mind games and surprise attacks to confuse his opponents, which often allows him to pull miracle victories even in "unwinnable" situations against extremely strong opponents. Xiaoshuai is also known for his relatively low APM for his skill level, which is considered unusual for Zerg players, as he prioritises mental calculation of build orders and timings over high APM.

Xiaoshuai maintains a very close relationship with his 2v2 partner Zhanhun, the best Protoss player in China. Together, they form the best 2v2 pair in China, often able to defeat even top Korean professional gamers in 2v2 tournaments. Because of their close relationship, Zhanhun is most well-versed with Xiaoshuai's style, which makes him more adaptable to Xiaoshuai's unconventional strategies (often countering with his own unconventional strategies such as "BGH-style cannonman")
