Yuanhao "Xiaohu" Li entered the LPL with expectations weighing down heavily upon his shoulders. As a promising new talent, fans expected Xiaohu to fill the demanding legacy of other Chinese mid laners. But despite the pressure, Xiahou has already begun to make a name for himself.
At the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational, Faker stood in the mid lane with low health against Xiaohu's LeBlanc. xiaohu didn't hesitate -- he exploded Faker instantly, and in response the packed stadium erupted with cheers. Unfortunately their one shining moment was not enough to sustain them, and RNG failed to reach the MSI Finals.
Now, Xiahou prepares to step onto another international stage. RNG has grown and learned from the experience of MSI, and Xiaohu's skills are always evolving. We can’t wait to see what he brings to the international stage this fall.
