"Smoothie" (Real Name: Andy Ta) is a Canadian League of Legends player, currently a Support for Team SoloMid.

Biography

Smoothie is from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Being underrated quite a bit while part of Team Dragon Knights and Team Liquid, Smoothie's talents were finally noticed when he joined Cloud9. His addition to the team made them noticeably better, as the team managed to reach the NA LCS finals twice, losing both times to Team SoloMid. C9 was also the only NA team to advance past the Group Stage at both the 2016 and 2017 World Championships. Following some problems with his shotcalling, Smoothie left C9 in the Summer of 2018 and joined Echo Fox.

Career History

2015 Season

Smoothie joined Team Dragon Knights in February 2015, replacing former support player KonKwon on the team just before the start of the NACS Spring Season. The team finished second in the regular season with a 7-3 record. In the playoffs, they beat Team Fusion 2-1 before losing to Enemy 1-3, sending them to the Summer Promotion Tournament. Despite the fact that they had placed higher than Fusion, Winterfox chose to play against them. TDK used substitute mid laner Alex Ich in their promotional matches and won 3-1, successfully qualifying for the NA LCS Summer Split.

Due to visa issues, Team Dragon Knights were unable to use their full roster for the first four weeks of the summer split, as Emperor and Ninja were unable to travel to the United States to play with the team; Smoothie was also substituted out for the first three games, with Baby playing in his place. The substitute rosters went a combined 0-9, but when Emperor and Ninja finally joined the team for the second day of the fifth week, the team defeated first-place Team Dignitas. Despite that initial success, Team Dragon Knights were only able to secure two more victories over the next four weeks, and they finished in last place with a 3-15 record, one game behind Enemy. As a result, they were automatically relegated to the 2016 NA Challenger Series Spring Season.

2016 Season

In September 2015, Team Dragon Knights renamed to Team Arena Online, and Smoothie and Emperor left.[1] On October 16th, Smoothie was announced as Team Liquid's new support, replacing Xpecial.[2] However, after only one game in the LCS, Smoothie was swapped to the organization's Challenger team Team Liquid Academy, to play in the NACS, as the first of several roster changes on the Academy team. The total of the roster changes proved detrimental to Team Liquid Academy, and despite initially being favorites to do well in the NACS, they only barely made playoffs, winning a fourth-place tiebreaker with Dream Team due to having 2-0'd them while IWDominate was temporarily substituting in the first week. They were eliminated in the semifinals by Apex Gaming. After the split ended, Team Liquid Academy rebuilt their roster, and Smoothie left.
