Changing Tides — The Oceanic stars headed overseas in 2020

Tommy “Ryoma” Le

Career highlights
  • 1x MSI Representative
  • 1x OPL Winner
  • 2x Rift Rivals Representative
  • 2x OPL runners up

Ryoma first debuted in the Oceanic Pro League in 2017, where he immediately showed that he was brimming with untapped potential. In his first split, Tommy was able to help his team qualify for Rift Rivals, and forged the much-loved “Sinderella” story.

Last year, Ryoma managed to twice reach the Pro League final, but fell to an near-unstoppable Dire Wolves outfit. Despite that, the young mid laner continued his meteoric rise, and in 2019 he finally lifted the OPL title with the Bombers in Split 1.

Heading into 2020, Ryoma has the honour of being the first Australian star to start in the mid lane in an LCS team, after being named in 100 Thieves’ roster alongside superstar names like Williams “Meteos” Hartman and Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho.

While the LCS is a gruelling run for most players, general manager Chris “PapaSmithy” Smith has preached patience for his “building” roster in his first year at the helm, meaning Ryoma is sure to be part of that developing squad.
