Earlier this month, an esports team called “Flying Dragon in the Air” impressed the Honor of King’s audience greatly.

The six members all have hearing impairments, but they entered the top eight at an audition for Taiyuan in the Honor of Kings National Competition Season 5.

The team was recruited by an association for deaf and hard of-hearing-people in Shanxi.

Due to their hearing impairments, which amount to considerable hearing loss among the team members, they have used some special gestures to indicate game actions like “attack” and “defense”.

In an interview with the media, one of the team members said their weaknesses had become a type of strength because the inability to hear makes them more focused and united.
