Stéphane "Manaty" Dimier is a League of Legends esports player, currently jungler for Solary.

Biography[3][edit]

Stéphane "Manaty" Dimier grew up in a suburb of Paris, in Levallois-Perret. He discovered League of Legends at the age of 9, playing on his friend's computer. Manaty didn't own back then a computer, so he mainly played on Wesnedays, when his friend had lessons and he didn't. At the same time, Manaty watched many videos in order to expand his League knowledge, which allowed him to improve even if he didn't play a lot. When he entered middle school, Manaty still didn't have a computer. At the end of his school year, he bought a 500 euros-computer, thanks to the money he was able to save.

During his first years in middle-school, he considered himself as a "normal teenager", chilling out with his friends after school. Indeed, he wasn't tryharding League of Legends yet. This period was a rough time for Dimier. Indeed, he recognises that he did mistakes when he was in middle-school, by not respecting his teachers, not working at all, and rubbing shoulders with bad people. He doesn't hesitate to say he was a "scum". However, Dimier began to focus more on League than before. He played between 3 and 5 games per day and quickly hit platinium, in roughly 100 games. Gradually, Manaty began to play more and more. In his last year in middle-school, he hit diamond. Then, he started to increase his playing time (7-12 games/day). During Season 6, he hit master for the first time. It was a turning point for Manaty, as he began to dream about becoming a pro player. Entering high-school, Manaty began to gradually forsook school, skipping class. He quickly began to play more than 16 games/day. He recognises he was spamming the game without thinking, only driven by a desire to improve. Thus, he was hardly ever going out. During this period, he hit challenger for the first time. He didn't tell his friends about his achievement, because they wouldn't believe he could become pro one day. However, Manaty lost his challenger rank quickly, because of his tilt but mainly due to his toxicity. For 8 months, he was stuck between Diamond 1 and Master 350LP. He almost stopped playing LoL when he dropped to Diamond 2. Despite his bad mood, Manaty kept playing, considering he "lost to much time" on League to stop now. Thus, he pulled himself together, spamming solo queues, analyzing pro-players-replays as well as his. He also worked a lot on his mental. His efforts paid off during Season 8. Indeed, he directly hit challenger during the preaseason, as well as his elo-peak (700LP). He thus took a decision : he would let himself a year to receive an offer which will allow him to drop out high-school, if it didn't work out, he would forsake LoL.

Solary[edit]

This offer came from Solary, which he officially joined on January 17, 2019, alongside Hantera. Indeed, their jungler Skeanz left for Vitality a few days before. They thus recruited Manaty; this choice was pretty surprising, given the fact Manaty was unknown and unexperimented. He was considered by the majority as a random-soloqueue-player. This gamble was mainly Chap's one. Indeed, he often met Manaty in solo queues and he noticed he had talent and a great potential.

Manaty was quickly thrown in the deep end in a lineup composed of Katare, Tioo, Wakz and Hantera. He played his first tournament with them during the Lyon e-Sport 12, where Solary finished top 8. Less than a month after, the LFL 2019 Spring began. The Spring split was very complicated for Solary, as they finished last (2-12). For the LFL 2019 Summer Split, Tioo was substituted by tonerre from GamersOrigin. Despite this transfert, Solary finished last of the Summer Split (2-12) again.

These results affected Manaty but he gained experiment and assurance during these two splits. He became a key-player for Solary. On the LFL 2020 Spring Split, many considered him as the most impactful player of his team, and one of the most promising jungler of the LFL. Despite the non-qualification for the playoffs, Solary finished the split with 6W-8L (one place away from qualifications). After the Summer Split, Solary took part in the Underdogs 2020, where they finished top 8, after losing 3-1 against GamersOrigin in quarterfinals. Solary surprised many people by managing to threaten Misfits Premier in groups stage, forcing them to dispute a tiebreaker to determine the first seed of the group, as they both went 4-2. Solary eventually lost the match.

Playing Style[edit]

Manaty is known to be an aggressive jungler, don't hesitate making "high risk, high-reward" plays. This playstyle is enhanced by his champion pool. Indeed, Manaty tends to play carry junglers, such as
Kindred
or
Graves
.
