Doublelift Officially Retires from Professional League Play

by in League of Legends | Nov, 25th 2020

One of the best Western players of all time Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng has decided to hang his mouse and keyboard and retire from professional play. This, as you can imagine, is quite a big hit for North America, and it comes mere weeks after Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg decided to do the same

What’s Next?

No one’s quite sure what Doublelift has in mind when it comes to his future. His TwitLonger is more of a testimonial than a taxative list of things he wants to tackle going forward. Still, it’s a safe bet to assume that he’ll remain with Team SoloMid. Whether he’ll transition into coaching, become a streamer, or go for something else entirely is still unknown at the time of this writing. Either way, he’s almost certainly going to remain a staple presence in the field of competitive League — and that’s for the best.   

With Doublelift opting to retire, this is truly the end of an era. We hope he’ll find as much success in his future endeavors as he did in professional play!
