Team Liquid’s AD Carry, Yiliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng, claims that former two-time League of Legends World champion, Bae ‘Bang’ Jun-sik has fallen off after his move to the 100 Thieves roster.

Since moving to North America to join the 100 Thieves roster, Bang has struggled to find much success with his squad, even finishing in last place during the LCS 2019 Spring Split.

Although 100 Thieves had been on somewhat of an upswing from their slump, the Team Liquid star, Doublelift, admitted to Upcomer that he feels Bang’s individual skill level has also taken a hit.

The two ADC stars clashed on July 7, which saw a shaky Team Liquid edge out the victory over 100 Thieves in what was a closer game than many had expected from the first placed LCS team.

During his interview with Upcomer, Doublelift revealed that Bang had dramatically dropped off in his eyes since debuting at the LCS Arena, when asked bout the current state of North American bot laners. 

“I actually think Bang got a lot worse since coming here. At first he was really strong, and I was really impressed with his play, and now I’m not.”

Despite Doublelift's doubts about on the Korean star, many fans feel as if Bang has been much improved recently, since 100 Thieves began to shuffle their roster around, and that he was a major contributor to some of their recent success.

With the latest 100 Thieves changes now allowing the team to play around the bottom lane of Bang and Aphromoo more, the team seems to have a new wave of confidence which lead to them picking up wins in recent weeks.

100 Thieves are currently sitting in 8th place but will need to make it into the top six to guarantee themselves a spot in the 2019 Summer Split Playoffs in Detroit.

As it stands, Doublelift and Team Liquid still managed to retain their spot at number one in the LCS standings even with the shaky 1-1 weekend overall.
