Nam "Lira" Tae-yoo (Hangul: 남태유) is the jungler for Clutch Gaming. His name was previously stylized LirA.

Biography

Season 3

Nam "LirA" Tae-yoo joined his first professional team in 2013 when he joined Chunnam Techno University as a jungler. However, he did not play any games with the team and left to join the KT Rolster Arrows in May.

2014 Season

LirA couldn't qualify for OGN with the Arrows so he left the team in February of 2014 to join CJ Entus Frost. He only played 2 matches with them in the SK Telecom LTE-A LoL Masters 2014 before leaving a month later. In June of that year, he went to China to play for OMG 2 but they never played any competitive games together before the team disbanded later that year.

2015 Season

LirA joined Rebels Anarchy in May of 2015 as their new jungler. They played in the Champions Summer 2015 Promotion where they qualified for SBENU Champions Summer 2015 after going 1-1 against Incredible Miracle and Winners. Anarchy placed eighth during the regular season and missed playoffs but they qualified for the next season of LCK.

2016 Preseason

Rebels Anarchy played in the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup where they lost 2-1 in the quarterfinals to Ever. On December 29, Rebels Anarchy renamed to the Afreeca Freecs.

2016 Season

The Afreeca Freecs started the 2016 LCK Spring Split as a bottom three team, losing many of their sets during the first round robin. This changed after their 2-1 upset over SK Telecom T1 in Week 6, which marked the start of a streak of wins that resulted in an exceptional second round robin where they went 7-2 in sets and cliched the final, fifth playoff spot in what many labeled as a "Cinderella Story." Unfortunately, during the first round of the 2016 LCK Spring Playoffs, they lost 2-0 to the Jin Air Green Wings, giving them fifth place overall for the spring split.

During the 2016 LCK Summer Split, the Afreeca Freecs went 8-10 in series. LirA shared starting time with fellow jungler SeongHwan. They earned fifth place in the regular season and a spot in the first round of the 2016 LCK Summer Playoffs. In the first round, the Freecs met Samsung Galaxy, who beat them 2-0, earning the Freecs fifth place overall for the split. Their accumulated points earned them a spot in the first round of the 2016 Season Korea Regional Finals, where they beat the Jin Air Green Wings 3-2 before losing to Samsung Galaxy 3-1 in a rematch.

2017 Season

EnVyUs' 2017 Season started off very rough. In the Spring Season they performed badly and lost a lot of games. Despite all of the defeats they accumulated, LirA was constantly praised for his incredible individual performances. The team's 9th place finish in the regular season meant that they had to fight for their LCS spot in the 2017 Summer Promotion Tournament. After a 3-2 victory over Gold Coin United, Team EnVyUs got to keep their spot. Their Summer Season was noticeably better and they finished in 6th place with 8 wins and 10 losses. However in the playoffs they were defeated 2-3 in a close Quarterfinals series by Counter Logic Gaming. This would end their 2017 season as the team didn't have enough Championship Points to attend the Regional Qualifiers. The team was not accepted into the newly franchised NA LCS in 2018. Following this LirA left the team in November and a month later joined the newly formed Clutch Gaming.

Trivia

  • Praised by many high ranked players for his unique jungle pathing and strategies.
