James "PhantomL0rd" Varga is a professional League of Legends player from Los Angeles, CA.
Before being introduced to League of Legends, PhantomL0rd began with Team Fortress Classic, Counterstrike, Quake3 Arena, and World of Warcraft. Due to his aggressive play style in Counterstrike, he favored and learned to go “balls-deep” in mid-lane. Within a few months of immersing himself in League of Legends, Phantoml0rd quickly climbed the solo queue ladder and made it to rank 1 on September 26, 2011.
