Team Liquid will move AD carry Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng to Team SoloMid, marking the return of the seven-time League of Legends Championship Series champion to his former team ahead of the summer split, league sources told ESPN.
Doublelift was intimately involved in the process of choosing which team he wanted to go to.
Doublelift will reunite with mid laner Søren "Bjergsen" Bjerg and support Vincent "Biofrost" Wang, both whom he played alongside during their championship runs on SoloMid.
Both Team Liquid and Team SoloMid declined to comment.
Doublelift will replace Kasper "Kobbe" Kobberup, who joined Team SoloMid in November after the end of his League of Legends World Championship run with Splyce.
As a member of Team SoloMid, Doublelift won two League Championship Series titles in 2016 and 2017.
Following the end of the 2017 world championship, Doublelift and Biofrost's contracts with Team SoloMid were not renewed in favor of then-G2 Esports bottom lane duo Jesper "Zven" Svenningsen and Alfonso "mithy" Aguirre Rodríguez. »
