William "scarra" Li is the former Head Coach for Counter Logic Gaming.
Scarra hails from Houston, Texas in the USA.
League of Legends Career
Scarra began playing League of Legends unprofessionally prior to Season One.
Scarra showed great skill and promise very early on, being able to secure rank 3 in the solo queue ladder by playing 23
Katarina games, where he was able to achieve a record of 22 wins and only 1 loss.
In early November 2010, scarra helped form Rock Solid along with Naryt, Rambo, Voyboy, Araragi, samtheham, and Th3RaT. With that lineup, scarra was able to place third at the Newegg Winter Wanfest 2010. 
After some shuffling in the roster of Rock Solid, scarra discovered L0cust and invited him to join the team, knowing L0CUST as an old mage player from scarra's World of Warcraft server. With the revamped Rock Solid lineup, scarra was able to show great skill and potential with his team, placing well in several ESL Go4LoL weekly cups as well incorporating unconventional picks such as Katarina.
On July 18, 2011, scarra, along with Rock Solid, was able to qualify for IEM Season VI - Global Challenge New York, beating out Team God Mode in Round 2 and, in a surprising upset, taking out Counter Logic Gaming in the finals of the IEM New York qualifying tournament.
On September 22, 2011, scarra and Rock Solid were picked up by Team Dignitas. Team Dignitas was looking for a new League of Legends team to sponsor after disbanding of its European-based team. Now having financial sponsorship, scarra was able to attend IEM Season VI - Global Challenge New York, where his team took fifth/sixth place, taking one game off of Team SoloMid.
After being picked up and sponsored by his new team, scarra and Team Dignitas were able to quickly establish themselves as one of the premier North American League of Legends teams, taking out Epik Gamer 2-1 in the IGN Proleague Season 3 - Atlantic City on October 9, 2011, as well as beating out Curse Gaming and Counter Logic Gaming Prime in 2-0 games during the quarterfinals and semifinals. scarra was once again able to take first place in the Rampage King of The Hill Series, edging out Team SoloMid 2-1, but fell to TSM soon afterwards in MLG Providence, taking home third place.
Returning back to America shortly afterwards, scarra and Team Dignitas were among the eight premier North American teams invited to the LoLPro.com Curse Invitational, where they were able to give one of their strongest showings yet. The team took out RFLX Gaming 2-0 in the first round, eliminated Epik Gamer 2-0 in the semifinals, and ultimately defeated Counter Logic Gaming Prime 2-1 in the grand finals, securing a trip to the Curse Gaming headquarters in the process. Dignitas ultimately took the grand prize of $20,000 after defeating Curse 2-0.
Once again looking to achieve success on an international level, scarra attended IEM Season VI - World Championship in Hanover. His team made an amazing run during group play, taking first place in the group with four wins and only a single loss, defeating Counter Logic Gaming Prime, Team ALTERNATE, Millenium and against All authority, and only dropping a game to FnaticRC. scarra's success carried over to the semifinals, where he was able to take out aAa once again 2-0 before falling in the grand finals 2-0 to Moscow 5.
Coming home to the United States, scarra attended IGN Proleague Season 4 - Las Vegas on April 6, 2012, where he was found as one of the heavy favorites going in. The tournament started out very well for scarra and Team Dignitas, as they were able to beat up-and-coming team Monomaniac 2-1 in the first round, and defeating another strong favorite for the tournament, Counter Logic Gaming Prime, 2-1 in the second round. Unfortunately, Team Dignitas fell short 2-1 against Team SoloMid in the fourth round, and were ultimately eliminated by Counter Logic Gaming Prime 2-0 in the loser's bracket.
On June 6, 2012, scarra attended the MLG Pro Circuit - Spring Championship with a newly reformed Dignitas, having their top laner Voyboy be replaced by former Curse player Crumbzz. Despite having a new roster, scarra and Team Dignitas were able to play exceptionally well, going undefeated until the winner bracket finals, beating the likes of Team Green Forest, Team Dynamic, and Counter Logic Gaming Prime. Dignitas' run was finally stopped after they were knocked out of the winner bracket finals by Team SoloMid, bringing them down to play against Counter Logic Gaming Prime once again where they fell 2-0, taking home 3rd place.
Following the MLG tournament scarra and the rest of Dignitas moved to Korea to compete in Azubu The Champions Summer 2012. Dignitas did not make it out of the Group Stage. Scarra moved back to the United States shortly after this.
Scarra and the rest of Team Dignitas competed in back to back Major LAN events near the end of the August with MLG Summer Championship and Season Two/Regional Finals - Seattle where he and Dignitas took home second at both tournaments.
Due to their top three finish at the Season 2 North American Regionals, Dignitas qualified to compete in Riot's new professional league, Season 3 League Championship Series, facing off in a 10 week competition against eight of the continent's best teams and players. Dignitas started off the season in an extremely strong fashion going an undefeated 11-0 in the first half of the it, with scarra being a pivotal playmaker. Throughout the rest of the weeks, the team entered a slump and eventually dropped to third place entering the playoffs. The Season 3 LCS Spring Playoffs took place in April, with scarra and company going against dark horse Good Game University in a best of three in the first round. GGU upset the heavily favored Dignitas by winning 2-1. This meant scarra's team was sent to relegation matches to win back their LCS spot at the Season 3 LCS Summer Promotion. In strong performances reminiscent of their early season successes, Team Dignitas was able to conquer Team Summon 3-1 and ensure their spot in the summer season.
The team also competed in the 2013 MLG Winter Championship, participating in the international exhibition. Dignitas went against top European contender Gambit Gaming, but was unable to take a game off the Russian players, losing 2-0.
NA LCS All Stars
In April 2013, scarra was publicly voted as the NA LCS mid-lane All-Star with over 50% of the vote, allowing him to play for the North America LCS team and compete in All-Star Shanghai 2013 against other regions' All-Star teams. Coming into the event, North America was viewed as one of the weakest teams attending. Their first match was against the China LPL All Stars, and despite solid performances, the NA LCS was unable to take a game, losing 2-0. They went on to face their sibling LCS team, the Europe LCS All-Stars, and in an intense and exciting two games, scarra with his teammates won 2-0. Winning against Europe placed them versus heavy favorite Korean OGN Champions, where they were handily eliminated 2-0. Scarra took home to the states his experience learned in the hectic international event.
Retiring from the Pro Scene
March 25 2014, Scarra chose to retire from the pro scene and became a sub for Team Dignitas as well as obtaining the coach role. He said about it: "I don't want this announcement to cause undue pain on the other members of the team. They are all great players, goldenglue included, and had to make a tough choice. Please keep supporting the team as I still will be from behind the scenes."
