Li "Punished" Yuanhui has been transferred to Vici Gaming from Unlimited Potential, according to Vici Gaming's weibo.

Punished played in the LPL for Unlimited Potential alongside mid laner Xin "Jiaoyang" Chen. Early on in the LPL Summer split, Jiaoyang would rotate frequently with Punished, but Punished became the team's main mid laner halfway through the split.

Vici Gaming signed Lee "Easyhoon" Jihoon earlier this offseason as their primary mid laner, making it likely that Punished will simply serve as a substitute player. Other substitute mid laners for Vici Gaming, Peng "Peng" Yibo and Wang "Hetong" Bin, were transferred to Unlimited Potential prior to Easyhoon joining Vici Gaming.

Punished was known in the LPL primarily for his Twisted Fate play, and Unlimited Potential received frequent Twisted Fate bans. Unlimited Potential were relegated from the LPL at the end of the 2015 Summer split, and Punished finished with a 2.8 KDA.
