Ainslie “Maplestreet” Wyllie joined new Japanese League of Legends team V3 Esports, the organization announced Tuesday.

Maplestreet, 24, has endured a long and winding League of Legends career. He played mostly for Challenger teams in North America and most notably played for Renegades when it qualified for the North American League of Legends Championship Series in August 2015. He left Renegades in October 2015 and spent most of the time since bouncing around Challenger teams, most recently playing for Dream Team in last year’s summer split.

He teased his move on Twitter over the weekend, and the team made the official announcement early Tuesday morning. In a bit of comedy, Maplestreet’s bio on the V3 website reads: “I once solo killed doublelift inĀ (the) LCS.”

Few details have emerged about V3, a Japanese Challenger team. The team has announced seven players on the roster and five additional staff member in addition to Maplestreet.
