You are a born engine in the battlefield.
You are the best Rubick player in the world, second to none
Your Earthshaker stuns the casters.
Your Phoenix got 2 kills when you were ganked by 3 enemies.
When you play Tusk, every single ability is skillfully wielded in your hands
Every hero you play seems to be endowed with a spirit, and you handle the tempo of gank perfectly. 

You have accompanied us through an unforgettable time. Thank you for the great contributions you've made since you joined LGD esports club. We will always remember the time we fought together. We sincerely wish every success in your future career.

Goodbye, captain!”
