Rumors: Uzi might join JDG's starting lineup Rumors

JD Gaming might acquire famous AD Carry Jian "Uzi" Zi-Hao from Bilibili Gaming. These rumors emerged on Chinese social media and were brought by a Redditor moonyyz.

According to Uzi's agent, these are the main points of agreement:

  • JDG offers some conditions that Uzi "cannot refuse". BLG can't match these terms no matter what they do.
  • Uzi will be in the starting lineup.
  • Players and coaches will listen to his opinion.
  • Uzi's contract only touches on playing. He may opt to participate in other activities like streaming or commercials later.

Both sources mention that the move is very likely to happen although they "cannot guarantee" it. JDG's current bot laner is Wang "Hope" Jie. His team finished 3rd in the LPL 2022 Spring split while BLG took 8th place.

25-year-old Uzi is playing professional LoL since 2012. He played for different clubs until became the face of RNG. By the middle of 2020, the carry retired from pro-play due to health problems. In December 2021 he returned to the scene and joined BLG. Uzi won several tournaments in his career and appeared in Worlds grand finals twice.
