Ame’s journey with PSG.LGD has been a rough one, despite managing to win multiple LAN tournaments during his 6 years of being with the organization from 2016. While Ame is currently a two time Major champion after winning the MDL Changsha Major in 2018 and the WePlay AniMajor in 2021, the uncrowned king was unable to win the biggest Dota 2 tournament of them all which is The International (TI) despite coming close numerous times.

Ame came close to winning the Aegis of Champions at The International 2018 (TI8), however OG’s “Cinderella Run” at TI8 denied him that opportunity as he lost his first Grand Finals of TI. Ame would have a second opportunity at the championship three years later at The International 2021 (TI10), however fate would once again deny him the chance of winning the championship as Team Spirit went on to win the Grand Finals of TI10.
