Jeong "Apdo" Sang-gil (Hangul: 정상길) is a retired League of Legends esports player, previously mid laner for Anarchy. He is also known as Dopa.

Biography[edit]

Jeong "Apdo" Sang-gil is known for being a high-Elo player on the Korean server, able to play top, jungle, mid, and AD carry, though he is primarily a mid laner. While, most consider him to be the second-best mid laner in the world after Faker, some believe him to be the better player overall; this is because he is able to excel at four different roles while Faker is only known for being a midlaner. On the other hand, he, unlike Faker, has never played in an offline tournament.

Initially, Apdo refused invitations to join pro teams because he earned more money by Elo-boosting, but he eventually attempted to play in the OGN Winter 2013-2014 Qualfier with a team called 양학하러왔습니다 (which would eventually rename to Team Dark and be disqualified from the tournament due to unsportsmanlike behavior). However, Apdo was still Elo-boosting, a girl who was in the same online community as him, whose account he had previously boosted, reported his activity to Riot; as a result, his main account was banned for 1,000 years, and he was banned from participating in OGN.[1][2] He would not be permitted to play in tournaments for the next two years.[3]

Despite his permanent ban, Apdo continued to play on smurf accounts and reach Challenger with extremely high win rates. He streamed on multiple platforms including AfreecaTV, Douyu TV, and YY TV. In September 2014, Apdo went to China to win 500,000 元 of the total 1,000,000 元 ($161,000 USD) prize pool for hitting rank 1 in Challenger,[4] a feat he was able to accomplish in under a month.[5]

In October 2015, Apdo released a statement apologizing for his behavior of boosting accounts and trolling games, stating that all of his accounts would be banned. While it initially appeared that he had the intention to go pro in China, a later post suggested that he never planned to play professionally.[6][7][8]
