"Xmithie" (Real Name: Jake Puchero) is a Filipino League of Legends player, currently a Jungler for Team Liquid.

Biography

A player with a storied history and several noteworthy achievements, Xmithie is one of North America's best and most consistent junglers. Although he had several minor stints on smaller teams, his first major one was Team Vulcun. After making it to the NA LCS, they were one of the better teams in the league. They were able to qualify for Worlds and despite being eliminated in the Group Stage, managed to pick up some victories against Europe's teams. Following their Worlds run the team renamed to XDG Gaming and had a very rough slump.

At one point Xmithie moved to ADC in an attempt to rejuvenate the team. After XDG was relegated, it took Xmithie a while to find his footing but he landed a spot on Counter Logic Gaming. With CLG he was able to win his first NA LCS championship in Summer of 2015. Although they weren't able to do well at Worlds, they won the Spring of 2016 and even finished second at the Mid-Season Invitational, losing to SKT in the finals. After an unsuccessful Spring Split with CLG, Xmithie was traded over to Immortals for Dardoch. The traded ended up being beneficial for both teams but more so for Immortals.

The team managed to reach the NA LCS finals but lost to Team SoloMid 1-3. They would go on to qualify for Worlds but failed to make it out of the Group Stage. After Immortals wasn't accepted in the franchised NA LCS, Xmithie joined Team Liquid and went on to win his third NA LCS split with the team in Spring of 2018.
