Christian "IWillDominate" Rivera is most well-known for being the jungler for Team Curse and later Team Liquid. He is now a coach for Team Liquid.
Before joining Dignitas, IWillDominate played for Complexity/Too Tricky. On December 4th, 2012, all of his accounts were permanently banned from League of Legends due to toxic behavior and he was subsequently suspended from the League Championship Series for one year.
IWillDominate took it as an opportunity for self-improvement and has since reformed from his formerly toxic ways. His quest to redemption started with the creation of a new account with the name "IWDomínate" and the subsequent climb to a 2.2k Elo rating. Upon reaching that milestone, he started streaming.
Although IWillDominate has been banned from the LCS, he was still able to compete in other events unrelated to LCS.
On July 7th, 2013, around one week after losing to FXOpen e-Sports 1-2 in the semifinals of the MLG Spring Championship, I Will Dominate announced his break from competitive play. He will still be living at the curse house as coach/analyst for Curse Academy and backup coach for Team Curse.
In October 2013, Dominate would rejoin the the competitive scene as a player as it was announced he would be the jungler for Curse Gaming.
On November 7th, 2013, IWillDominate's LCS ban was officially lifted.
Prior to the start of the spring LCS split, Team Curse merged with the Team Liquid organization and rebranded under the name Team Liquid. After a few swaps between Keith and Piglet as their AD carry, the team ended the season with a 9-9 record and qualified for playoffs with the sixth seed after defeating Team 8 in a tiebreaker game. In the playoffs, Liquid beat CLG 3-0 in the quarterfinals before falling to Cloud9 3-2 in the semifinals; in the third-place match, Liquid finally broke the "fourth-place curse" that stopped them from placing higher than fourth place in any event that had persisted since they were Team Curse and took down Team Impulse 3-2.
Team Liquid finished the summer split round robin in first place after winning a tiebreaker match over Counter Logic Gaming - the first team other than TSM or Cloud9 to place first in an NA LCS round robin. However, in the playoffs, they lost immediately in the semifinals to TSM, making them also the first team to finish first in an NA LCS round robin but not make the playoff finals. A CLG victory over TSM in the playoff finals sent Team Liquid to the regional finals instead of giving them a direct seed to Worlds via Championship Points, and in the gauntlet they lost to underdogs Cloud9, ending their post-season abruptly.
After playing one game in the 2016 NA LCS Spring Season, IWDominate announced his retirement from competitive League of Legends. He stayed with the organization to act as a positional coach to his successor Dardoch and temporarily substitute for Team Liquid Academy in the NACS.
