Hardy Pace
The PC-Guy
Player 2

Hardy fell in love with competitive video games as soon as he was old enough to understand the strategy behind his favorite titles. Growing up on RTS and ARTS/MOBA games, you could always find him in the nearest LAN center playing DotA and StarCraft: Brood War with friends. 

That love of competition and video games alike paved Hardy's way into the professional League of Legends scene - where he provided journalism covering multiple facets of the eSports community and hopes to bring his knowledge to PlayAsiaTV for future content. Heavily invested in PC gaming, and PC hardware, his excitement about the video game industry knows no platform-discrimination. 

Keen to be playing lots of games with Gold Mountain and the rest of PlayAsiaTV; Hardy hopes to bring analysis and a great deal of fun to the channel.

Ethan Lau
Master of 3D

Anytime you see anything that is 3D on one of the PlayAsiaTV shows, then you know the magic alchemic master is working in the background. From creating, modelling, and designing all the 3D work, this man constantly surprises us with objects we never knew we needed, but always wanted. 

Working in tandem with Arne, Ethan is responsible for the aforementioned, as well as helping out with video editing and shooting. When he isn't doing so he returns to the corner as you can see here in this picture. 

An avid NBA, GTA, and FPS fan, Ethan is a welcome addition to our ever-growing team!
