Not only returning to Weibo Gaming as a sub, SwordArt is said to have made great contributions behind the scenes.

After switching to the LCS to compete in 2021, SwordArt returned to reunite with his old teammates in the colors of Weibo Gaming in early 2022. Many people think that the player born in 1996 will play alternately with ON, who is still quite inexperienced. However, from Spring to Summer, SwordArt only played 4 games.
However, the player from Taiwan still has specific contributions to the team, especially in terms of coaching. This was shared by Jungler SofM in a recent interview on ONE Esports.
“SwordArt now acts as ON’s teacher. He helps the bot duo find strong pairings, analyzes the matches, and helps them improve from laning to teamfights.” SofM shared.
SofM also believes that the help from this man has helped ON to be more confident and overcome the psychological barrier this season. That is proven by ON’s performance in the past many matches. Although there are still times of instability, ON also shines many times, this player has received 5 MVP titles this season, the second most in the team and only behind TheShy (8 times MVP).
