As one of the strongest carry players in Dota 2, PSG.LGD’s Wang "Ame" Chunyu has flexed his skills on a number of heroes throughout his career and has been successful on most occasions. Usually, the conversations revolve around these prolific players' top heroes, but a former teammate of Ame, Zhao "XinQ" Zixing, listed the heroes Ame isn't good at. XinQ, in some playful banter, mentioned Drow Ranger and Sniper were Ame's weaknesses while stating that he was much more potent on other carry heroes, particularly, Spectre. Additionally, XinQ revealed who he thinks is the best carry player on Sniper.

XinQ lists Drow Ranger and Sniper as Ame’s weak heroes

A Twitter user named CN Dota In A Nutshell (@Tr1H4rd3rDota2) translated XinQ's remarks as saying Ame is unaware of the right manner to use Drow Ranger's second skill - Gust, which pushes the opponent and silences them.

Furthermore, a weak link for Ame is also Sniper, as XinQ mentioned that the carry player’s Spectre can easily take down his Sniper. According to XinQ, former Team Liquid carry Lasse "MATUMBAMAN" Urpalainen plays Sniper in the carry role best.

In a hilarious turn of events, Ame heard XinQ's statements during a stream and also returned the banter. According to him, XinQ's Io is even worse than his Sniper.

It's been a rather rare sight to watch Ame play Sniper but the player does like to play Drow Ranger, particularly when it comes to ranked Dota 2 games. His win percentage on the hero on one of his accounts is respectable - 58.73% after 63 games.

On the other hand, it's likely that he took a jibe at XinQ's Io because of his performance in The International 10 (TI10)’s grand final. PSG.LGD had felt strongly that Io was an issue in their first two losses of the grand final, as revealed during TI10's True Sight.

Although these two former teammates poke each other during livestreams, they are currently not participating in competitive Dota 2. While the carry player is inactive on PSG.LGD’s roster while he takes a break, XinQ had stated a few months ago that he was not actively hunting for a new team due to certain health difficulties and wrist issues.

Both of these Dota 2 pros are among the finest in the game, and fans will be eagerly anticipating their comeback. While XinQ may return in the near future, Ame's retirement rumors, which have surfaced now and again over the previous year, raise concerns about his comeback.
