Li “Vasilii” Weijun has joined League of Legends Pro League team Newbee Gaming, according to their weibo.

As a seasoned veteran of League of Legends, Vasilii has a long career beginning in 2012 with his time on EHOME. The western world knows Vasilii best for his time on LMQ, a team that came from China to qualify for the North American League of Legends Championship Series and represented NA at the 2014 World Championship.

Since his time on LMQ, Vasilii joined LPL team Vici Gaming in 2015 Spring, but after spending time on the bench, went to LSPL team IN Gaming. His recent career has been plagued by reports of rage, including instances where he has damaged computer equipment. Vasilii has said many times that he has seen a psychologist for his anger problems.

Newbee Gaming was formerly known as QG Reapers before they were purchased in 2016 Spring and rebranded in 2016 Summer following the departure of Kim “Doinb” Taesang. Newbee recently placed 5th-6th in the LPL Spring playoffs, upsetting Invictus Gaming in the first round.

Zhang “Mor” Hongwei, also previously of LMQ’s NA squad, is the starting support and shotcaller for Newbee. Newbee currently have two other Chinese AD carries signed to their roster, Lin “Lwx” Weixiang and Yu “HappyY” Rui. It is unclear which AD carry will start for the team in the coming 2017 LPL Summer Split.
