Ming ‘Clearlove’ Kai is a Chinese professional cyber athlete that plays League of Legends for Edward Gaming. He currently plays the jungler role with his signature heroes, Rammus, Malphite, Evelynn, Nunu and Lee Sin.
Whenever Clearlove would not talk in his stream, he would play romantic songs or a happy song like ‘Ode to Joy’. Due to this, the esports community gave him the nickname ‘Love Song Prince’ and ‘Esports Beethoven’.
Where it all began:
Clearlove played League of Legends since 2011, famous for his survival skills by saving and supporting his team mates, leading towards winning the esports match. He is also known for two personas, dark and light that reflect in his inconsistent aggressive game plays in the jungler position.
