Biography[edit]

Calvin "k1ng" Truong joined Dire Wolves in August 2014, under the name BEST AD. Soon after joining the team, he was moved to a substitute position due to being underage and replaced by ChuffeR for the Oceanic Regional Finals. In November, BEST AD returned to the starting lineup and ChuffeR moved to support.

In January 2015, BEST AD renamed to k1ng. Dire Wolves placed second in the first split OPL playoffs and then tied for third with Avant Garde in the second split playoffs. At the end of the season k1ng left the team and joined Legacy eSports, temporarily renaming to yb but shortly after returning to k1ng as his handle.
