A mainstay on the LPL roster and an important part of League of Legends After the team’s success over the past three years, Tian helped FPX and China achieve international recognition at Worlds 2019.
Beating Europe’s G2 Esports in the finals in Paris and earning the series’ MVP, Tian was portrayed a year later in the 2020 Worlds song “Take Over” as Lee Sin, fighting atop a mountain.
In 2021, Tian has struggled to perform to his full potential amid worries about his physical health. Repeated problems with his wrist kept the player on the bench throughout the LPL season and was replaced by replacement Yang “Beichuan” Ling.
At Worlds 2021, Tian stepped up to the starting line-up because of his commitment to the team, but fell short in the group stage of the tournament that took place in Reykjavik, Iceland in October and November.
FPX, despite being one of the event’s favorites, was dropped from Group A after losing to Europe’s Rogue and North America’s Cloud9 in a tiebreak.
“He didn’t want to play it but the situation changed and he had to play it. I think he tried his best,” teammate Kim “GimGoon” Han-saem said in a translation in October.
It remains to be seen where Tian will develop his career next. Taking a break during fitness training could be on the 21-year-old’s card.
“Today the journey of FPX.Tian has come to an end,” FPX said in a statement on social media. “But the story of Gao Tianliang is still waiting for you to write.”
