Doublelift explains why Fenix is an easy target in brutal roast.

League of Legends star Yiliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng roasted fellow professional Kim ‘Fenix’ Jae-hun during a solo queue match on his Twitch stream. 

Doublelift is one of the most famous North American players, having played at the highest level since 2011 and consistently representing his region at the League of Legends World Championships.

He’s played against many players in his time, including Fenix, a Korean mid-laner that Liquid’s star couldn’t help but roast during one of his Twitch broadcasts.

Riot GamesDoublelift is one of NA’s most famous LoL pros.

The American’s game had seen a lot of action, especially in the mid-lane, and he had just noticed who was playing there. “This Irelia is crazy,” said one of his teammates, before Doublelift replied with a brutal comment.

“Yeah, its Fenix… this guy has never shown signs of brain activity” joked Yiliang, laughing as he said it. He then recalled playing an LCS match against him, where his team realized a crucial hole in the Korean’s playstyle.

“After reviewing footage, we realized Fenix had never survived a gank in his whole career. So, sure enough, he just died to every gank” explained the American, once again laughing while roasting his fellow NA LCS pro.

Doublelift’s comments were fairly unexpected as the two players never had much of a rivalry or any public conflict, but fans enjoyed them nevertheless, laughing alongside him and enjoying the heat.

He seemed to be correct about the Korean’s vulnerability to ganks as he ended up dying 10 times in the game, much more than any other member on his team.

The game ended up going in favor of the American with a pretty one-sided victory, largely due to Fenix’s deaths, which gave the jungler and mid-laner a lot more gold and experience than they should have had.

Ironically, Fenix rose to fame due to the weakness that Doublelift pointed out. In 2015 the player faced a 1v4 gank in the LCS, by no other than the American’s then-CLG squad, and managed to kill all four members.

Perhaps Yiliang remembered this and was trying to throw fans off the scent, or maybe he was just living up to his famous cheeky attitude.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
