Pirean Domestic Career
Pirean began his League of Legends career on Team Impulse. Together with his teammates, he took part in the 2016 NA LCS Spring Split. Unfortunately, their roster was crippled by visa issues, and it wasn’t until week 4 that Team Impulse could field its intended lineup. With that, the team struggled to stand up to the competition, and its 5-13 record amounted to a ninth-place finish. This knocked Impulse down to the promotion tournament where they defended their LCS slot with a 3-1 win over Apex Gaming.
At the end of the split, Riot Games issued a competitive ruling that banned Team Impulse from the NA LCS for not having proper contracts and not paying its players. Additionally, the organization was fined $20,000. As for Pirean, he joined the team that purchased the freed up NA LCS slot—Phoenix1.
But a new roster didn’t bring Pirean any luck. Phoenix1 were crippled by the visa issues of their intended jungler, Inori, and they had to add Zentinel as a substitute. During that time, they lost the vast majority of their NA LCS games, and it was only when Inori arrived that they started to pick up some wins. It was too little, too late, though, and P1’s 5-13 record forced Pirean into another promotion tournament. There, they requalified for the NA LCS with a 3-0 win over Echo Fox.
In the off-season, Phoenix1 rebuilt their roster. Pirean was cut from the starting lineup in favor of Ryu, so it looked like he was going to spend the entire split on the bench. However, he was recruited by another NA LCS squad, Team EnVyUs, to share play time with Nisqy.
As luck would have it, Nisqy couldn’t join his team for the first three weeks of the competition because of visa issues, so Pirean became the main mid laner for the first half of the split. He had a good start, and his performance on Taliyah allowed Phoenix1 to secure a 3-1 record. But Pirean ran out of steam later on, so EnVyUs jumped at the opportunity to field another mid laner when Nisqy arrived.
During week 7, EnVyUs traded Pirean back to Phoenix1 to replace Ryu who decided to take a break from competitive play. Unfortunately, Pirean only won a single game on the team, and Phoenix1 ended up in another promotion tournament. And since Ryu came back, Pirean spent the rest of the season on the bench.
When Phoenix1 weren’t accepted in the NA LCS, Pirean parted ways with the organization. He spent several months as a free agent before joining SKT T1 as a substitute mid laner. He didn’t get an opportunity to start before the 2018 LCK Summer Split when SKT decided to sub him in for a single series against MVP. That series ended in a 2-1 loss.
