Xmithie is on his way to his fourth World Championship on his third team. After years as the quiet workhorse for Counter Logic Gaming, Xmithie's renaissance came when he was traded to Immortals before the 2017 NA LCS Summer Split.
Along with coach Ssong, Xmithie's leadership transformed Immortals into a top team immediately. Xmithie's flashy plays during the Summer Split even earned him a fair share of MVP votes. That leadership will be tested again this fall when several of his teammates make their first trip to the world's biggest stage.
