Doublelift Bio, Age
Doublelift is Yiliang Peng’s pseudonym. He was born in Mission Viejo, California on the 19th day of July 1993. Doublelift is of Chinese descent, the second child of Wei Ping Shen and Guojon Peng. He has two siblings, both are boys. Nothing is known about his high school education but it is known that he is either currently attending or attended the University of California.
He grew up with his family in California. He could be said to have been close to his elder brother as it was Yihong that inspired and encouraged his pursuit of online gaming. Also Yihong, his elder brother made his computers available to Yiliong to be able to play online games such as Dota 2, Nintendo, Diablo 1 and StarCraft. Doublelift as his name would later become, played these online games with his brother and his friends.
As the years went by, Yihong bought more computers when he got tired of the former and handed down his used computers to his younger brother. This was a boost for Yiliang who later moved to an online multiplayer game that he would become famous for – League of Legends. His gaming skills caught the attention of a member George “HotshotGG” Georgallidis of the gaming team called Counter Logic Gaming. He began working with CLG in 2011 and participated in his first tournament in the same year titled DreamHack Summer 2011.
After he got back from this tournament, things worsened at home. Earlier his parents never approved of his participation in games and told him it was a waste of time. They also asked him to get a “real” job. He defiled their demands and went on with gaming, backed by his elder brother. His stance infuriated his mother who began complaining about little things and when he spoke back, she kicked him out of her house, rendering him homeless. This didn’t deter Doublelift as he went ahead to stay with a friend of his and continued as a member of CLS. Shortly after, he left CLS to play with Epik Gamer.
