The competitive itch: Doublelift breaks down his return to the LCS and why he left pro play for a streaming career

For some professional League of Legends players, the retired life isn’t something that appeals to them. They might enjoy the relaxed nature of other ventures, but ultimately, the drive of competition will call them back to the stage. For North American superstar Doublelift, that “competitive itch” is exactly what made him join 100 Thieves this past offseason.

In a quick video, Doublelift explained that after TSM’s tgic run at the 2020 World Championship, the organization was ready to revamp the roster around him and recently departed jungler Spica. Doublelift was also set on continuing his playing career, and when the team began negotiations with veten support Hu “SwordArt” Shuo-Chieh, his excitement for 2021 rose to new heights.
