Biography

Xpecial hails from Temple City, California in the USA. He began his pro gaming career in many different MMOs including DotA; as that lost popularity he switched to League of Legends. He is currently playing support for Team Liquid's bottom lane.

League of Legends Career

In May 2013, during Season 3, Xpecial was selected to join the North American All-Star team in Shanghai, along with scarra, Doublelift, Saintvicious, and teammate Dyrus. Along with Doublelift, Xpecial received second place in the Bottom Lane Skill Competition, losing in the finals to Pray and MadLife of Korea. In the main event, the North American team finished in the top four by winning against Europe 2-0 and losing to both China and Korea 0-2.

On March 23, 2014, Xpecial was awarded the Week 9 MVP for having the highest KDA of the week, 11.5, in two games against Dignitas and XDG Gaming. This was his first Week MVP award and the fifth for Team SoloMid.

On April 27, 2014, Xpecial announced on his stream that he was being benched from Team SoloMid's main roster.[1]

On May 4th, Xpecial announced that he had been released by Team SoloMid and was joining Team Curse.[2] The details surrounding the quick benching and subsequent release were unknown for some time, with neither party divulging any details until Xpecial announced via his stream that the release had not be performance related but rather due to his "passive-aggressive attitude." Months later, Xpecial retracted his statement, saying that he did not consider himself to be passive-aggressive but instead trying to be critical without being rude.

Xpecial remained close to his old Team SoloMid lane partner, WildTurtle, hugging him after Team SoloMid and Team Curse's World's match.
