Peter ‘Doublelift’ Peng played in his first LCS matches in over two years for 100 Thieves and went 1-1 on the week. In an interview with Travis Gafford, the veteran player said that he was surprised at how easy it was for him to regain confidence in his abilities against other LCS competition.
Doublelift has started his return to professional play with a 1-1 first week against LCS competition. The 100 Thieves player said that he initially thought he would be behind the curve when he returned to the stage, but quickly found out that he had not regressed that much and other bot laners have not improved far past him.
“Every single day my confidence gets better because I’m like playing against everyone and no one is really impressive,” Doublelift told Gafford. “I’m like, ‘Damn, that’s all you got? Really? I thought I was going to get sh*t on.'”
The 100 Thieves bot laner also shouted out his support player, Alan ‘Busio’ Cwalina, saying that he picked his lane partner because he thought the LCS rookie has the potential to be something “special” about him. The veteran also said the he is back on track to being the best bot laner in the league.
