Today, we’re excited to announce Stephen ‘Triple’ Li as our new Mid laner, completing LG Dire Wolves 2018 roster.
Finding a replacement for Richard ‘Phantiks’ Su was never going to be an easy task, so we began searching for an individual who had the drive and raw talent with room for growth.
Stephen caught our eye from his consistent individual performance with Avant Gaming across the year. After many conversations with Stephen, we identified his unique perspective to be valuable, along with having a personality that will thrive within our high performing environment.
“It’s a pleasure and honour to be joining Oceania’s first World Championship representatives and two time OPL champions. Despite having big shoes to fill from my predecessor, I’m confident that with the guidance of LG Dire Wolves support staff, my new teammates and training facilities, I will be able to live up to the high expectations set by the organisation and fans.” – Stephen ‘Triple’ Li
“Stephen possesses many of the qualities that we were after in a new mid laner, he has the natural talent, composed temperament and drive to achieve excellence. I am looking forward to developing Stephen and facilitating his learning with the assistance of our performance director, Jonathan Brown.” – Coach Curtis ‘Sharp’ Morgan
*Stephen’s signing is currently pending approval from the OPL – Oceanic Pro League
