SwordArt was a universally recognized talent even before he joined Suning in 2018. He is now most famous for the 2nd place finish in the recent Worlds tournament but he’s been making waves for years following the Shanghai bout. SwordArt first rose to prominence playing for the Taiwan-based Flash Wolves from 2015 to 2018. Casters and analysts praised SwordArt’s ability to command and guide his team from the thick of hairy team fights. He is known for intelligent ward placement that serves as his teammate’s guides regarding objectives and impending fights.
The Taiwanese Support recently added a new feather in his cap fighting for Suning. SwordArt has since become a more proactive Support player. His ability to initiate team fights and turn around ambushes is praiseworthy. Unfortunately for him and his past team, they were unable to take the Worlds crown home. His alleged transfer TSM will be a fresh start but it will be a difficult road. NA is home to some of the most competitive talents from around the globe.
Unfortunately, SwordArt was unable to win any local Chinese titles with Suning. He is still the Support that helped Suning reach the Worlds 2020 finals despite the dismal local record. SwordArt is still a dominant player and will be a fine addition to TSM. He will replace Vincent “Biofrost” Wang as starting Support. TSM fans will have a lot to look forward to next season as they continue their unending TSM chants.
