This year, JD Gaming won its first-ever MSI championship, adding a greater trophy to its collection of three LPL domestic championships. Since 2020, under the direction of head coach Yoon “Homme” Sung-young, they have been improving both in the LPL and abroad.

After losing to T1 in the Worlds 2022 semifinals the previous year and having issues with the motivation of specific players, JDG updated its lineup for the 2023 season by replacing Wang “Hope” Jie with star bot laner Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk and mid-laner Zeng “Yagao” Qi with Zhuo “knight” Ding.

They went on to win LPL Spring to represent their region as LPL’s top seed at MSI, along with top laners Bai “369” Jia-Hao and Lou “Missing” Yun-Feng. With this historic victory, Ruler has now won every major League of Legends esports championship, which speaks much about both the roster’s increasing strength and Ruler personally.

JD Gaming and Ruler’s historic run

With top laner Lee “CuVee” Seong-jin, jungler Kang “Ambition” Chan-yong, mid laner Lee “Crown” Min-ho, and support Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in on Samsung Galaxy, Ruler first gained notoriety in the LCK in 2016.

Despite having trouble in the playoffs, the team managed to make it through the regional qualifications to the Worlds finals, where they lost to SK Telecom T1 3-2.

Keeping the same squad, they placed third in the LCK Spring and Summer 2017 competitions the following year and once more earned a spot at Worlds via regional qualifications.

After defeating Team WE and Longzhu Gaming in the playoffs, they once more found themselves on the same stage as nemesis SKT for the Worlds finals. However, they were able to decipher the code that year and defeated them 3-0 at the Beijing National Stadium to capture their first World title.

After being acquired by Gen.G, Ruler continued to play in the LCK with several rosters but never saw the same success. It wasn’t until the LCK Summer 2022 tournament that he finally won his first domestic championship, five years after the World Championship, by defeating the same rival organization, T1.

They represented the area at Worlds 2022 as the LCK’s first seed, placing third or fourth with top laner Choi “Doran” Hyeon-joon, jungler Han “Peanut” Wang-ho, mid laner Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon, and support Son “Lehends” Si-woo.

Ruler made the decision to join the LPL in 2023, telling ONE Esports that it was not an easy transition. Despite these obstacles, he and JD Gaming won both the regular season and the playoffs in just one split, and they continued to dominate throughout MSI, never losing a series in the top bracket.

With the victory, the seasoned AD carry has now claimed every significant League of Legends esports championship open to him, according to his own special timeline: Worlds first, followed by LCK, LPL, and MSI.
