Shanghai fans can only hope for a better season in 2020.

  • Diem came up with his name with Carpe after they discovered the popular latin idiom “carpe diem” which means “seize the day.”
  • Diem played for the team “Lucky Future Zenith” in the 2018 Overwatch Contenders: China season. Funny enough, the entire team was composed of South Korean players.
