Marcus "Dyrus" Hill is a retired League of Legends player who is currently a streamer for Team SoloMid
Dyrus is from Honolulu, Hawaii, in the United States.
Dyrus was a dominant player starting in League of Legends's beta. His first competitive role was as support for one of the first competitive LoL teams, All or Nothing. After AoN disbanded, Dyrus joined Epik Gamer as the team's top laner, though the team often switched roles around in competition. He gained massive popularity from streaming and the relative success of Epik Gamer at LAN tournaments. Epik Gamer's achievements with Dyrus included fourth place at the Season 1 World Championship, second at MLG Raleigh 2011, and second at IPL 3.
In early 2012, Dyrus moved in with Team SoloMid in their gaming house in New York, due to his high ping from Hawaii. He continued to play for Epik Gamer. When TheRainMan stepped down from TSM in March 2012 following IEM Hanover, Dyrus left Epik to replace him as TSM's new top laner. TSM became known as one of the strongest teams in the world - and the strongest team in North America, winning or placing highly in every LAN event they played for the rest of the year. First-place titles included IPL 4, MLG Anaheim, IPL Face Off:San Francisco, and the GIGABYTE Esports LAN. TSM accrued by far the most circuit points out of any North American team, and so received the top seed to the season 2 regional final, which they won. At Worlds, TSM received a group stage bye as the top North American seed, but they lost in the quarterfinals to eventual second-place team Azubu Frost.
As one of the North American teams that attended the season 2 World Championship, TSM were given an automatic seed into the first-ever season of the North American League Championship Series, along with Dignitas and Counter Logic Gaming. They finished the spring round robin with a 75% winrate and in first place, and in the playoffs they defeated Good Game University 3-2. The following split, they found themselves lower in the standings, winning only half of their games in the round robin. In the playoffs, they defeated CLG and then Vulcun to make it to the finals before losing to newcomer Cloud9, who had just been promoted into the LCS that split. TSM and Cloud9 would become rivals for the top position in the North American standings.
This year, it was Cloud9 that got the bye to quarterfinals at the World Championship, and TSM were unable to advance past the group stage, placing fourth - behind Lemondogs and ahead of the wildcard team GamingGear.eu.
At the Battle of the Atlantic, TSM played against Lemondogs, using new mid laner Bjergsen in place of Reginald for the first time. They won their series 2-0, and North America beat Europe in combined score.
TSM's spring split went better than their season 3 summer split had, and they ended the round robin with a 22-6 record - just two games behind Cloud9. However, once again they found themselves lacking in the finals of the playoffs, losing to Cloud9 in another 3-0 series. With TheOddOne retiring and Xpecial replaced by Gleeb going into the summer split, TSM struggled early on but started to rebound with the addition of Korean import Lustboy replacing Gleeb. They accomplished what they hadn't been able to since Cloud9's entry to the LCS, and won the playoffs with a 3-2 victory over their rivals.
TSM once again received North America's top seed to the World Championship, and they placed second in their group, behind Star Horn Royal Club and ahead of SK Gaming and Taipei Assassins. It was the first time that TSM with Dyrus had advanced past their initial seeding location at a World Championship, though they lost in the quarterfinals to eventual tournament winners Samsung White.
TSM were the North American team invited to IEM San Jose, the first event that they played with the roster Dyrus, Santorin, Bjergsen, WildTurtle, and Lustboy. They were seeded directly into the semifinals, where they lost 0-2 to Unicorns of Love.
TSM began the 2015 Spring Split with an 8-2 record after five weeks, holding first place during every week after the first. By virtue of their standing after the fifth week of the split, TSM was invited to the IEM Season IX World Championship. There, they defeated Team WE, CJ Entus (marking their first tournament win over a Korean team), and the yoe Flash Wolves to advance to the finals of the event, where they swept Team WE 3-0 to win the title. Though TSM themselves did not play against the GE Tigers at all (then undefeated in the LCK), or against any Korean team in a multi-game series, they still made history by being the first North American team to win an international event with Korean teams present since Chicks Dig ELO at the 2011 World Cyber Games and the first Western team to do so since Gambit Gaming at IEM Katowice in 2013.
TSM finished the spring season with a 13-5 record, giving them the top seed into the playoffs. After defeating Team Impulse and then Cloud9, TSM won their third North American championship, tying Cloud9's record of most North American LCS championships won to date. Their victory also gave them the North American seed to the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational, where they looked to replicate their IEM success. However, the team underperformed in the group stage, winning only their match against wild card Beşiktaş and not qualifying for playoffs.
In the summer split of LCS, TSM started relatively strong, sitting at a 8-2 record at the end of week 5. However, they fell to fifth place by week 9, their lowest regular-season placement to date. In the playoffs, TSM beat Gravity Gaming and Team Liquid in the first two rounds, winning both series 3-1. In the finals, held at Madison Square Garden in New York City, they faced off against long-time rivals CLG and lost in a convincing 3-0 series. TSM had already qualified for Worlds after their semifinal win due to their Championship Points from the spring split, and they ended up with the second seed from North America.
TSM were drawn into Group D, which instantly became known as the "Group of Death" or the "Group of TSM's Death" due to LGD Gaming and KT Rolster being favorites to win it; Origen was the last team drawn in. LGD massively underperformed expectations, however, and TSM took a game off them in the first round robin. However, at the same time Origen overperformed, and ultimately KT Rolster and Origen made it out of groups; TSM lost their second game against LGD and ended up in last place with a 1-5 record. After their final game, Dyrus received an ovation from the crowd and gave a brief but emotional interview in honor of his retirement in place of the interviews usually given to members of the winning teams.
On October 14th 2015, TSM announced his retirement but he will stay with the team as a streamer.
