Biography

2014

Duke, formerly Leopard, joined the KT Rolster Bullets in Season 3. He did not play with the team on stage untilIEM 8 World Championship, when he was moved to the starting roster. In said tournament, they were able to take home the victory by beating Fnatic (3-0) in the final match.

After leaving KT Rolster Bullets, Duke changed his name to Leopard before joining NaJin Black Sword as the team's starting top laner. His first tournament with NJBS was HOT6iX Champions Summer, where they made it to the quarterfinals but dropped to SK Telecom T1 S (3-2).

2015

Following the changes with the rules for OGN, NaJin merged Sword and Shield to form NaJin e-mFire. Shield's then top laner, Save, left the organization, thus giving Duke sole possession of starting top laner. The team was invited to participate in SBENU Champions Spring, placed 6th during the regular season and were unable to proceed to the playoffs. Despite the team's mediocre performance, Duke was still able to win the award for MVP of the season.

In SBENU Champions Summer, NaJin finished 5th and was able to qualify for the playoffs. However, their success was short lived as they lost to KOO Tigers (2-1) in the first round. Despite that, they managed to earn enough circuit points to qualify for the Regional Finals. Then again, they lost to Jin Air Green Wings (3-0) in the first round.

2016

NaJin participated in the KeSPA Cup but lost to Rebels Anarchy (2-1) in the first round. Duke then parted ways with the team to join SK Telecom T1. They attended IEM 10 Katowice despite being the sixth-place team in the LCK that time. Blank was brought in as a substitute jungler for bengi and swept the tournament. They were able to win the title after winning seven games. Following their international success, they finished 3rd in the regular season and qualified for the playoffs. SKT won the finals, the team's third championship title in a row and a seed to MSI.

After winning Worlds, Duke decided to leave the team in November to sign for LPL's Invictus Gaming.
