Chae "Piglet" Gwang-jin (Hangul: 채광진) is a League of Legends esports player, previously mid laner for Clutch Gaming.

Biography[edit]

Season 3[edit]

Chae "Piglet" Gwang-jin first joined SK Telecom T1 #2 in February 2013 as a rookie player from soloqueue. He was part of a team built around Faker, with Impact, bengi, and PoohManDu rounding out the roster. The team's first tournament together was OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013 where the team found immediate success. They placed third after losing 3-1 to MVP Ozone but they beat CJ Entus Frost 3-0 in the third place match. SKT1 2's sister team, SK Telecom T1 1 was dropped from the organization so Impact's team was renamed to just SK Telecom T1. Next, they attended HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013, this time managing to qualify for the finals. They were pitted against the KT Rolster Bullets and even went down 2-0 initially in the set but they managed to bring it back and win the tournament with a 3-2 victory. This win earned them enough circuit points to qualify for the Season 3 Korea Regional Finals. They were automatically seeded into the finals where they faced the Bullets once again, this time taking them down 3-1 to qualify for the Season 3 World Championship as the third seed from Korea. SKT went 7-1 in their group, only dropping a game to OMG and was put against the Gamania Bears in the quarterfinals. They quickly dispatched the bears 2-0 and then went onto play a close set against NaJin Black Sword that they eventually won 3-2. The finals saw SKT playing against the Chinese Royal Club. Royal was no match for SKT and the set ended with a quick 3-0 and the crowning of SK Telecom as the Season 3 World Champions. A month later, the team was renamed to SK Telecom T1 K. Piglet also received the Best AD Carry title at the 2013 Korea e-Sports Awards.[16] Piglet became known for being a very proud player, and rivalries formed between himself and both imp and Deft, the AD carries from the Samsung teams.

2014 Season[edit]

SK Telecom continued their streak of domination at PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014. In an unprecedented show of strength, SKT managed to sweep the entirety of the tournament, culminating in a 3-0 victory over Samsung Galaxy Ozone. This is widely considered to be the most impressive feat achieved by any team as OGN is thought to have the highest level of competition in League of Legends. However, HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 began the steady decline of SKT K as a team. They were upset in the group stages by the KT Rolster Arrows and barely scraped through to playoffs. They then met Samsung Ozone in the quarterfinals and were swiftly beaten 3-1. Due to having the most circuit points in Korea, they were invited to participate in All-Star Paris 2014. After winning 6 games in a row, they 3-0'd OMG to take the tournament without dropping a game. They came back to Korea for HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 but fell in the quarterfinals again with a 3-1 loss to Samsung White. SKT was forced to play a tiebreaker against Samsung White to determine who would go to the 2014 Season World Championship as the second seed from Korea. White was too strong for SKT, quickly sweeping them 3-0. SKT was knocked into the finals of the gauntlet where they faced a red hot NaJin White Shield that took out the former World Champions 3-1.

In September 2014, both Piglet and PoohManDu were released from the SK Telecom organization. Shortly after, Piglet received an offer to join Team Curse, which he accepted. He remained with the team through their transition to Team Liquid.

2015 Season[edit]

Due to visa issues, Piglet was unable to play in the first week of the NA LCS 2015 Spring Split, and so Keith was used as a substitute. However, the team went 2-0 with Keith and then a combined 2-4 in weeks 2, 3, and 4, and going into the fifth week Piglet was moved to be the substitute AD carry, while Keith became the team's starter. Piglet returned to the starting roster for week 7 and stayed with the team for the rest of the split.[17] The team ended with a 9-9 record and qualified for the NA LCS Spring Playoffs with the sixth seed after defeating Team 8 in a tiebreaker game. In the playoffs, Liquid beat Counter Logic Gaming 3-0 in the quarterfinals before falling to Cloud9 3-2 in the semifinals; in the third-place match, Liquid finally broke the "fourth-place curse" that stopped them from placing higher than fourth place in any event that had persisted since they were Team Curse and took down Team Impulse 3-2.

Team Liquid stuck with the same five-man roster with Piglet as the starting AD carry for the entirety of the NA LCS 2015 Summer Split, and they finished the round robin in first place after winning a tiebreaker match over Counter Logic Gaming - the first team other than Team SoloMid or Cloud9 to place first in an NA LCS round robin. However, in the NA LCS Summer Playoffs, they lost immediately in the semifinals to TSM, making them also the first team to finish first in an NA LCS round robin but not make the playoff finals. A CLG victory over TSM in the playoff finals sent Team Liquid to the 2015 Season North America Regional Finals instead of giving them a direct seed to Worlds via Championship Points, and in the gauntlet they lost to underdogs Cloud9, ending their post-season abruptly.

2016 Season[edit]

Despite a rumor that Piglet was to leave Team Liquid in the preseason, he remained with the organization, and it was his support Xpecial who departed instead.[18][19] Xpecial was replaced first by Smoothie and later by Matt partway through the LCS spring split.

Team Liquid finished fourth in the regular season, going on to defeat NRG in the quarterfinals before losing a narrow five-game series to CLG (the eventual champions). In the fifth game, Piglet was caught out in mid lane by a double-teleport from both Darshan and Huhi at the same time to the same ward and died. While Liquid were already behind in that game, it was this play that sealed the win for their opponents. In the third-place series against the tournament-favorite Immortals who had been knocked down in an upset by TSM, Liquid lost once again, this time 0-3, to finish the playoffs in fourth place overall, continuing the team's "fourth-place curse."

2018 Season[edit]

On November 7th, Piglet became a North American resident.
