The former EHOME player has already taken part in several matches for LVG, playing in Huya DarkHorse League Season 7, where they currently hold a 2-3-0 record. This move will leave LVG with a seven-man lineup following their decision in December of last year to reacquire their former player ZhouXing “XinKoiNg” Cai to extend the team to a six-man roster. The addition of 4king also marks the first Chinese team to field a seven-man roster in the region.

In Lynn Vision Gaming (LVG), 4king will reunite with his former teammate in TeamZero.TSG, Heng “EXPRO” Yang, after being separated from each other for more than four months. Both players were removed from the TeamZero.TSG’s active roster following the acquisition of EXPRO by LVG and 4king who was moved to the bench position and later signed by After Gaming in September of last year.
