Tommy "Ryoma" Le is a League of Legends professional who was signed for the 2020 LCS season by 100 Thieves. He hails from Australia and plays in the mid lane for one of the most popular brands in esports.
But where did he come from and how did he fair in his first week of competition?
Ryoma League of Legends: History
Ryoma comes from the Oceanic Pro League and made his debut for the first time in one of the top competitions in League of Legends. Ryoma has been playing professionally since 2015, so he's no new kid around the block. He spent most of his time on Australian teams like Legacy Genesis, Chiefs Esports Club and Sin Gaming before joining Bombers. He played for almost a team for the Bombers and it was at this time where he caught Christopher "PapaSmithy" Smith's eye.
The head coach would go on to recruit him and bring him onboard in November of this past year.
Ryoma League of Legends: Performance
Ryoma had a shaky start to the LCS season, despite having a 2-1 record, 100 Thieves main carriers are not in the mid lane. The team is based around Sun "CodySun" Li-Yu, William "Meteos" Hartman, and Kim "Ssumday" Chan-ho, so the focus is not on Ryoma.
He'll have to learn to play a more passive mid lane, who's main strength is not giving up lane despite the lack of resources and even jungler presence. If he can learn to do that, Ryoma will do exactly what his team needs from him.
