On the night of Nov. 3 in Incheon Wenhe Coliseum, when IG destroyed the FNC base, the whole competition scene boiled. The audience shouted the name of the new king IG. Tens of millions of players witnessed LPL winning its first championship. Even Baolan, who had always been calm and calm, could not control his mood. He showed a brilliant smile in front of the camera. In this global finals, he proved himself by his actions. He is an important part of the championship team.
Starting the race life from TGA
The team that can win the championship is impossible to exist short board. Three years ago, IG collapsed in the group stage of the 2015 global finals. Half a year later, Baolan joined the team. Now he is the second oldest IG player. In the past two and a half years, Baolan has witnessed the loss and rise of the team. In the end, IG successfully reached this year’s global finals, and overwhelmingly beat other teams to win the world championship.
This is the first grand event champion that Baolan has won. In fact, IG has failed in the LPL league, the Demasia Cup and international competitions in the past few years, and this time they have successfully opened a new page in history. For Baolan, this is also the best commendation for his tortuous life in the past few years. Many people think that Baolan joined IG directly to start his own competitive career, but this is not the case. Baolan did not play LSPL, but he fought in the TGA for a long time.
TGA is the city heroes competition, a sub event under LSPL. Baolan initially embraced the passion of the game to join the competition industry, but his parents were very supportive of his behavior. From the support of his family, Baolan has been on the road of electronic competition till now. Although he failed to play in LSPL League through many TGA teams during his time, he built Baolan’s strong heart in that period, so that he can withstand any pressure.
Silent dedication creates champion legend
After gaining the favor of IG, Baolan finally had the opportunity to display his talent on the LPL stage, but at that time, the focus of IG was on the first two routes, and the next route was often the target of the opponent. Although Baolan tries to protect the development of teammates, the natural disadvantage of IG makes Baolan a critical point for many players. Baolan, on the other hand, learns from experience and lessons. While focusing on protecting development, Baolan also actively walks the middle road to help Rookie open up the situation, and then Rookie feeds back to build advantages.
This style of play has gradually become Baolan’s main style, and he has become one of the most powerful assistants of LPL’s roaming and supporting ability. Especially after Ning and TheShy joined the team, they helped Baolan to share a lot of pressure so that he could concentrate on his own operation better. After Jackey Love finally met his starting age this year, IG was fully achieved, and the long-awaited strong coalition of fans did not disappoint us. IG successfully won the runner up of the LPL summer tournament and won the tickets to the world finals.
Baolan did not show any stage fright or nervousness during his trip to Korea. Even when he first appeared on the stage of the global finals, Baolan showed his own style. When he was playing against Korea’s KT, he resolute to win the team. And in the final match against European giants FNC, his close protection achieved JackeyLove’s four kill. Auxiliary position is often the most easily overlooked position, but Baolan’s contribution can not be erased, he is the team’s lubricant.
When the team needs Baolan to open up a group, he will make no effort to create opportunities. When the team needs Baolan to take care of the back row, he will dispel any enemy calmly. Excellent assistants are always able to do both, and Baolan has made great progress this year, often playing against Jackey Love in the next line. As a young player in LPL, Baolan paid close attention to the team silently, which we can’t forget. We hope he can make greater breakthroughs in the future.
