Changing Tides — The Oceanic stars headed overseas in 2020

Shern “Shernfire” Tai

Career highlights
  • 2x Worlds representative
  • 2x MSI representative
  • 4x OPL Winner
  • 2x Rift Rivals representative
  • 1x OPL MVP

Shernfire holds one of the strongest records in the Oceanic Pro League—there wasn’t a season that he entered that didn’t end with him lifting the trophy at the end.

The divisive jungler is one of two players to have featured in all four of Dire Wolves championship runs, alongside k1ng, and the Wolfpack’s dominance is synonymous with Shernfire’s strength in the jungle, and across the Rift.

Unfortunately, Shernfire’s career as also been dogged by competitive integrity sanctions, and the jungler was allegedly unable to find a team in Australia in 2019 due to a rumoured “shadow ban” that kept him from professional play for the year, though this was never confirmed.

In 2020, Shernfire is set to return with a vengeance, after signing with Team Liquid Academy in the LCS system. He’s had a chance already on the LCS stage in Mads “Broxah” Brock-Pedersen’s absence, and it’s sure to not be the star jungler’s final time on stage in Los Angeles, and hopefully wherever his career with the four-time LCS champions takes him.
