Kang "Ambition" Chan-yong (강찬용) is the Jungler Icon.png Jungler for Samsung Galaxy.

Biography

Ambition's family got their first computer when he was 9 starting his gaming life. He played Starcraft for 10 years. He could only play 1-2 hours a day because of his strict parents, but he always tried to get better when he could play. He quit Starcraft to start playing League of Legends. [1]

League of Legends

Ambition has a long history of competitive career starting back in 2011. He first joined MiG Blaze, which eventually became Azubu Blaze then CJ Entus Blaze. In 2014, in compliance with the new rules set by LCK, CJ Blaze and CJ Frost merged to form CJ Entus. Ambition continued to play for the team for the entirety of 2014 Season before parting ways with the organization to join Samsung Galaxy in 2015.

Season 6
Ambition became the starting Jungler for Samsung Galaxy in 2016. They finished 6th in Spring regular split but in Summer, the team managed to make it to 4th place. They proceeded to the playoffs but lost to KT Rolster in the 2nd round of the gauntlet. But since the team has earned enough Championship Points over Spring and Summer, they made it to the 2016 LCK Regional Qualifiers where they beat Afreeca Freecs in 2nd round and KT Rolster in the Finals, thus qualifying for the 2016 World Championship.

At Worlds, Ambition and team made it to the knockout stage after coming out as #1 seed from their group. They ended their Worlds run at 2nd place, beating Cloud9 in the Quarterfinals and H2k-Gaming in the Semifinals, but losing to SK Telecom T1 in the Finals. He also finished 5th-8th in the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup alongside his team, and 1st in IEM XI Gyeonggi, which qualified them for IEM XI World Championship.

For 2017 LCK Spring, Ambition will continue to play with Samsung together with his teammates from the 2016 Season, with the addition of Haru as his Sub.

Trivia

  • His favorite champions are
    Soraka
    and
    Cassiopeia
    .[2]
  • Famous with his brusque face and scary-looking smile, which made him a distorted character of "swinging the bat toward his team mates when he feels anger". This is also due to his resemblance to Korean murderer Ho Sung Lee (이호성), who was once a famous baseball player.

  • Was once ranked second on NA solo queue.

  • Famous in China due to his
    Twisted Fate
    play in All-Star Shanghai 2013 which dominated the China LPL team.
