    Anyway.... I just came across this, but Zhuang FOO was the GM of the FOO guild & probably the best PvP duelist UO's ever seen. I was in vent with this guy often enough to know that this is indeed him, but I just thought showing it to the rest of the UO community here would be interesting..

    Enjoy.

    ps.. if google leads you here Cole. PEON says hi !

    I'd rather see him win silver in the junior olympics but that's pretty cool :)

    Style, grace, positive energy, humility and pride. Impressive and beautiful. Any man that can dance all those different styles and practices martial arts and PvPs.. if only I were young again..:heart:

    Is there anything we, as a Stratics family, can do to support Zhuang in this endeavor if it's confirmed to be him?

    Kelmo, you have forever ruined that song for me now. :twak:

    You can check Cole's Twitter Acc.

    Twitter

    Somewhere in one of his comments he mentions UO. I don't have a twitter acc. myself but I'm sure Cole would appreciate any congrats etc... from those of you that use twitter. Actually, it appears Cole is an aspiring actor as well, so any additional "hype" attached to his name is probably good for him.. heh..

    LETS GO UO
    LETS GO !!

    OK, is it possible to know if it's REALLY him?
    In an ongoing contest maybe we could show UO community support somehow...

    Hmm... Someone with a Twitter Account drop him a message with this link & tell him to post some old PvP pics with his Zhuang character? Honestly I was sure it was him after I heard his voice (many hours in Vent etc), but it was also a dead give away bc I remember him saying stuff like "gotta quit dueling man I have to go to BALLROOM dancing heh ) Hmm.. Maybe I'll make a twitter Account really quick heh.

    Well, than tell him we keep our fingers crossed :)
    He's good enough to make it without us, but anyway... we may have another "famous guy who once played" to add to the hall of fame.

    Zhuang still plays somewhat. Last I dueled him was in December 2011, just a little over six months ago.
    I would agree that he is bar none, the GREATEST mage duelist to ever play this game(east or west, i've dueled them all). In terms of speed, timing, and sheer talent, he is #1. A few can get close, but Zhuang will always be on top. The fluidity and speed in his dancing is highly reminiscent of his dueling style, and now I know why he is so insanely good at dueling.

    Zhuang, I wish you the best of luck!

    This guy has it right, there will never be someone who can match up or compare to this guy in dueling, anyone who says otherwise has some clear mental issues.

    Yes, Thanks to Vexxed! Wednesday night is the next round I believe. I don't watch TV but for this I will. The audience votes too so anyone that reads this and wants to put in a vote for Cole can do so. How cool is that!

    It always amazes me to see so many accomplished and talented people in real life who plays UO. Thanks for sharing.

    TOP 8 ! Zhuang Foo (Cole Horibe) Makes it 1 step closer.....

    For those of you unfamiliar with the format, each of the contestants performed with an "All Star" from a previous season & then the 2 lowest scoring Male & Female dancers are selected & do a solo performance to try to save themself.. Anyway Cole wasn't in the bottom 2 & moves on to the TOP 8.

    Cole "All Star" Cha Cha performance. Lots of Constructive criticism this wk heh.
