AD Carry Li “Vasilii” Wei Jun has been officially released from the LPL team Newbee following his on-stream behavior. A livestream captured what appeared to be a violent outburst from Li, and what sounds like Li destroying items and striking his girlfriend. The video includes Li screaming and what sounds like his girlfriend crying after the incident. Police were reportedly called.
We are not including the video of the stream, but it’s not hard to find.
Li has been playing League of Legends professionally since 2012. He briefly played in North America on LMQ before the team was rebranded to Team Impulse.
Previously, Li has rage quit from games and even destroyed live game sets. He has broken computer monitors and set-ups at gaming houses as well.
