xiaoyu and Xubin come from LSPL team, Legend Dragon. Legend Dragon placed fourth in 2016 LSPL Summer. Soul played for LSPL team, Team KungFu, who placed 14th of 14 teams and were auto-relegated. Prior to joining Team KungFu, Soul played briefly for Energy Pacemaker All when the team had a slight upswing in 2016 LPL Spring.
