Flame first debuted for Azubu Blaze in October 2012 and built his career through a number of teams in various regions: LGD Gaming, Longzhu Gaming and Immortals. The top laner has most recently played for FlyQuest in LCS, moving out of the team at the end of 2018 and not being signed by other teams throughout the 2018-19 off-season period.
Flame is expected to share the spot with Nuguri, the super-rookie top laner of Damwon. The veteran top laner will hopefully provide the relatively young roster of DAMWON Gaming with experience and shotcalling ability.
