The female eSports president gave her boyfriends gamer a surprising challenge

Peng “Doublelift” Yiliang who is the top gunner in the League of Legends (League of Legends) North America, must pass the World Championship group stage to be accepted by his girlfriend.


Doublelift became famous for Counter-Logic Gaming and later TSM. However, he used to call TSM trash when he switched to Team Liquid (TL) in 2017. In 2 years playing for TL, Doublelift won 4 consecutive LCS championships. These successes make many people believe that this gunner will continue to stick with TL. However, TL’s poor performance (ranked 9/10) in the 2020 LCS Spring Split caused Doublelift to change his mind.
At the end of April, he returned to TSM’s “old roof”, where his girlfriend Leena Xu is chairman. This decision by Doublelift surprised many people and caused controversy. The North American League of Legends community thinks that he returned to TSM just for love. Despite the fact that the two have a passionate relationship, Doublelift shared that he would still return to TSM if Leena Xu was not a member of this organization. The good relationship between Bjergsen and Biofrost was the most important factor which drew Doublelift to this decision.
Bjergsen and Doublelift just shined to help TSM win the World Finals 2020. They beat Cloud9 3-1 and became the 3rd representative of the LCS to compete in the most prestigious League of Legends in the world.
During the live broadcast in early August, Leena Xu revealed that Doublelift proposed to her. However, she refused and only accepted if this gunner passed the group stage of Worlds. This is something Doublelift has never done in his career. Doublelift flourished while playing in the LCS, but when he stepped into the ocean, he was no longer himself.
