Andy "Reginald" Dinh is the owner of Team SoloMid, and is also currently a substitute for the team. He was previously the team's mid laner.

Biography

Reginald originally came from San Jose, California, USA. On September 2009, Reginald created the SoloMid.Net website. At this time he was part of team All or Nothing.

After the team disbanded due to conflict between Reginald and Dan Dinh on what the team needed, as well as differences in play-style between the brothers, he moved onto Team SoloMid in 2011 and became the mid laner for the team.[1] He has competed at LAN events such as MLG, IEM, and IPL. Currently his main champions are

After the Season 2 World Championship, Reginald announced his retirement from professional League of Legends and said he would become a manager for Team SoloMid, but later announced that he would instead remain as the team's Mid Laner; he has since stepped down from Mid Lane and has become the teams Coach/Analyst.

On August 14th, 2014, it was announced that Reginald violated the LCS rules by refusing to apply the instructions or decisions of LCS officials by announcing Lustboy as new player of TSM without Riot's final approval. He was fined $ 2,000.[2]

Playstyle

Reginald is known for having a very aggressive playstyle in the mid lane, roaming a lot and attempting for kills in lane. He later on switched to a more balanced playstyle, knowing when to go aggressive and when not to.
