Veteran AD carry Yiliang "Doublelift" Peng attributed their disappointing run to ineffective scrimmages, and their inability to schedule practice with teams they knew would "try hard" at Worlds. Despite these problems, he admits that if they were truly a Top 4 team, they would've adapted and managed to make it out of the group stage.

"We didn't play well as a team at Worlds, so it's pretty natural to have thoughts of retiring," he stated.

"For me personally, I think it's a bad time to retire. I think I got way better this year. I've been consistently--and statistically--the best AD in the NA LCS, at least this split," he went on to say. "I don't think I'd want to retire because--how crappy would that be? I went through relegations twice to getting ousted by my teammate to winning NA LCS and 3-0ing my rivals and making it to Worlds. Who knows what's going to happen next year?"

The pair refused to comment on who wanted to retire, but according to Doublelift, he has expressed no plans to retire any time soon.

"I think we can achieve a lot more," said the star AD carry. "So I hope my teammates don't retire."
