"The Rain Man" (Real Name: Christian Kahmann) is a retired American League of Legends player, formerly a Top Laner for Team Solo Queue.

Biography

Christian "The Rain Man" Kahmann is top laner and captain of his own team, Team Solo Queue. He was previously the top laner for Team SoloMid. He left the team after their elimination in the group stage of IEM Hannover. Before forming his own team, he was occasionally subbing for teams such as 4not or mTw.NA.

Career History

Playstyle

The Rain Man is known for his rather passive playstyle at the top lane. He concentrates on not losing lane and farming, in order to be a great presence in the later stages of the game. However, this playstyle has sometimes been criticized as some people say it rarely wins lanes or snowballs an advantage. Since leaving TSM and subbing for other teams The Rain Man has adopted a more aggressive playstyle for certain champions. Coincidentally, former teammate and ex-TSM member Chaox has also been criticized for being too passive in lane compared to the more aggressive Wildturtle.
