Team Liquid has been rising up the ranks this LCS Summer Split after their abysmal ninth-place finish in Spring. With Broxah finally stepping into his leadership role, and Joshua “Jatt” Leesman coming in as coach, another integral piece to TL’s success is their promoted rookie bot laner, Edward “Tactical” Ra.
Though the former TL Academy player only had a short LCS stint in Spring, by summer he looked well meshed with the veteran team. He does after all, have big shoes to fill, left by their former all-star ADC, Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng who moved to TeamSolo Mid.
With the new-and-improved line-up and staff, Team Liquid is currently dominating the LCS, ranking in second place with only two losses against Cloud9 and Evil Geniuses.

Through their success, Tactical has been turning heads with his dangerous sharpshooting on the Rift. He currently ranks sixth in most kills (39) and second in damage share, dishing out an above average figure of 31.8% of TL’s total damage, proving that the rookie is one to be contended with.
TL support player and 2017 World Champion Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in even described the 19-year-old as a “diamond in the NA mine.”
With his newfound status as a hotshot rookie, Tactical is ready to challenge C9’s Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen, former teammate TSM Doublelift, every other NA ADC, and get this — even the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), USA’s intelligence agency — at being the best on the Rift.
I am tactical and i am gonna be the king of NA, the king of ADC, Challenge me if you disagree. @FBI— Edward Ra (@Tactical) July 17, 2020
Yes, he really did tag the FBI. What a baller.
