With TSM, he won several League of Legends Championship Series North American titles and appeared in several League of Legends World Championships. He retired from competitive play after the 2015 League of Legends World Championships.

Career[edit]

Dyrus has been playing League of Legends since its beta phase. Dyrus' favorite champion is Singed, through which he acquired rank 1 with in the beta phase. Dyrus' career started out as a support for one of the first competitive teams in the League of Legends professional scene, All or Nothing. Following the disbandment of All or Nothing, Dyrus joined Epik Gamer as their top laner. Dyrus gained exposure following his decision to start streaming on Twitch[2] because of his unique play, interesting personality, and the success of Epik Gamer at LAN tournaments. Dyrus later moved in into the gaming house of New York-based Team SoloMid (TSM) to pursue a full-time gaming career while still playing for Epik Gamer.

Following the resignation of TheRainMan from TSM, Dyrus offered himself as RainMan's replacement.[4] Prior to his signing, Dyrus had already been living in the TSM gaming house. With Dyrus' former team's blessing, Dyrus resigned from Epik Gamer and has been playing as the top laner for Team SoloMid.[5]

Dyrus and TSM won the 2014 Spring split and the 2014 Summer split. In the 2015 Spring NA LCS, Dyrus helped TSM win the regular season and the playoffs. Team SoloMid was the winner of the Intel Extreme Masters Season IX Katowice World Finals. They defeated Team WE 3 to 0 in the finals.[6]

Winning the 2015 Spring LCS granted them one of six invitations to the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational in inaugural year for the event. TSM finished in 5th place at the event.

In the summer split, TSM finished in 2nd place being defeated by Counter Logic Gaming in the playoffs.[7]

At the 2015 League of Legends World Championship, TSM was placed in Group D which consisted of Origen, LGD Gaming, and KT Rolster known as the "Group of Death". TSM finished fourth place in its group and was unable to progress further. After TSM faced their last game at the tournament against LGD, Dyrus retired and was given a standing ovation for his contribution to TSM.[8]
