Biography[edit]

Lee "Flame" Ho-jong was born in Busan, South Korea, and later moved to Ilsan. He has trained in progaming since he was young and enjoys it, having played League of Legends since October 2012, primarily playing toplane.

Season 2[edit]

Flame entered the pro scene after being scouted from soloqueue and passing a test in Seoul to start playing with Azubu Blaze as their top laner, originally under the name Goldtec. He played his first tournament with Blaze during IGN ProLeague Season 5. Blaze placed third in their group and were forced to play in the loser's finals. They made it all the way to the third round but lost 2-1 to Moscow 5.

Season 3[edit]

Blaze qualified for the IEM Katowice where they placed second after losing 2-0 to Gambit Gaming. Blaze finally got to play in a OGN together during OLYMPUS Champions Winter 2012-2013. They lost two best of 5s in the semifinals to Azubu Frost, 3-2 both times. They then had to play against KT Rolster B in the third place match but lost 3-0. Blaze left the Azubu organization in February and joined CJ Entus to create CJ Entus Blaze. Blaze was invited to the IEM World Championship, this time making it to the finals and beating their sister team, CJ Entus Frost, 3-1. Blaze came back to Korea for OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013 and they managed to win 13 games in a row but were upset 3-0 by MVP Ozone, marking the biggest upset in League of Legends history at the time. Blaze had a much less successful HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013, losing 3-2 in the quarterfinals to the KT Rolster Bullets. Blaze qualified for the Season 3 Korea Regional Finals but lost 3-0 in the first round to the Bullets again. The team managed to qualify for the 2013 World Cyber Games and swept the whole tournament, ending with a 2-0 finals against OMG.

2014 Season[edit]

Blaze started the new season at PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014 but lost again to the KT Bullets 3-1 in the quarterfinals. Blaze impressed again at HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 but lost a very close 3-2 series to NaJin White Shield in the semifinals. Blaze lost in the third place match 3-2 to Samsung Ozone to end in fourth place. HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 marked the worst season in Blaze's history, where they failed to make it out of the group stage for the first time ever. Though Flame was initially thought to be remaining on CJ Entus after the organization consolidated its two teams into a single roster, on December 1 the organization announced that Flame had left the team.[32]

2015 Season[edit]

Flame and LGD played in the 2015 Demacia Cup Spring Season but lost in the quarterfinals 3-0 to Invictus Gaming. They only placed sixth in the 2015 LPL Spring Regular Season but in the 2015 LPL Spring Playoffs they made it all the way to the finals, eventually losing 3-2 to EDward Gaming. They had the same result as the last Demacia Cup in the 2015 Demacia Cup Summer Season, losing 3-0 to OMG in the quarterfinals. LGD placed fifth in the 2015 LPL Summer Regular Season but managed to win the 2015 LPL Summer Playoffs with a 3-2 victory over the Qiao Gu Reapers. This victory clinched LGD the top Chinese seed for the 2015 Season World Championship. LGD was placed in a group alongside Team SoloMid, Origen, and KT Rolster. Unfortunately, they ended with a 2-4 record and were knocked out of the tournament.

2016 Preseason[edit]

LGD were the fan-voted team to attend IEM San Jose. They were knocked out in the first round, losing 2-0 to Team SoloMid, with Flame and Acorn each playing one game. Flame left LGD after IEM, and in late December he returned to Korea, joining Incredible Miracle.[33] Incredible Miracle rebranded to Longzhu on January 3, 2016.

2016 Season[edit]

During the 2016 LCK Spring Season, Longzhu played with a 10-man roster, liberally using substitute players. Flame shared play time with fellow top laner Expession. Longzhu finished the spring split in seventh place with an 8-10 set record, missing out on a spot in the playoffs. For the 2016 LCK Summer Season, Longzhu announced Flame had been taking out of the starting roster to join the practice team. However, he was reinstated into the starting roster for the second round robin. Longzhu fared poorly in the summer split, going 7-11 in sets and netting them eighth place, letting them escape relegations. In November of 2016 Flame left Longzhu and in the next month joined Immortals over in the NA LCS.

2017 Season[edit]

In the Spring Split Immortals was for the most part a middle of the pack team. Although they showed promise they could never break into the Top 3. The team finished in 7th place, barely missing out on the playoffs. In the Summer Split after bringing in SSONG as their new coach, Immortals' performance turned around completely and they stayed in the Top 3 throughout the whole regular split. The team finished the regular season in 2nd place with a 14-4 record. Their performance in the Summer Playoffs was also excellent as they took down Counter Logic Gaming 3-0 in the semifinals and became the first team in NA LCS history since 2013 outside of CLG, TSM and C9 to reach the finals. Despite their accomplishment however, they were defeated 1-3 by TSM in the finals and finished 2nd place. Despite the loss they still managed to qualify for the 2017 Season World Championship via championship points. At Worlds Immortals was seeded in Group B along with Longzhu Gaming, Fnatic and GIGABYTE Marines. Despite a good 2-1 start in Week 1 they couldn't follow up on it in Week 2 and went 0-3. Having to play a tiebreaker in order to advance forward, Immortals faced Fnatic and lost the game which knocked them out of Worlds. Flame left Immortals in November of 2017 after the team was not accepted in the newly franchised NA LCS. He then joined FlyQuest within the same month.
