LoL: World Champion and Founder of the “Wife Buff” Wants to Name Son After the Champ That Made Him Famous

LoL: World Champion and Founder of the "Wife Buff" Wants to Name Son After the Champ That Made Him Famous

Former LoL pro Kang “Ambition” Chan-yong (29) is one of the most famous League of Legends players ever. With Samsung Galaxy he became Jungler World Champion in 2017 and was considered Faker’s great rival until his retirement in 2018. He is due to have a son in December 2022. The 29-year-old wants to name him after the LoL hero who made him famous: Jarvan IV. His second child should be named Jarvan V and become a real heir to the throne.

Who is this?

  • Ambition began his pro career in LoL in 2011, right around the start of League of Legends.
  • The peak of his career was reached in 2017: he married Solji Maeng, a woman from the LoL environment, and became world champion with his team, Samsung Galaxy. In the final, in November 2017, they beat the favorites T1 and Faker, who had previously won 3 world championships in 4 years. The stoic Faker cried after the defeat – that still hangs over him to this day.
  • Ambition retired in 2018 and has since streamed for Gen G., T1’s arch-rival.

With the wife came the big success for Ambition

What is it with the wife buff? When Ambition got married in 2017, it was unusual for a LoL player because they’re usually always single. Players up until then had taken an example from the austere superstar Faker, whose life revolves around LoL and who is known to play LoL in his free time to recover from the stress of playing LoL all day for work.

For years, young professionals in LoL used to say: “As long as Faker doesn’t have a girlfriend, I don’t have one either.”

But when Ambition got married, something strange happened: he suddenly played much better and even became world champion.

Since then, there has been the legend of the “wife buff” in LoL, which says that a player who gets married is now “buffed”, i.e. plays much stronger than before:

In South Korea, Ambition is still popular to this day and people are fascinated by his marriage.

How are you two? After the end of his professional career, Jarvan continued to play LoL as a streamer. While he was feared as a pro for his gruff manner and poker face, as a streamer he seemed much more relaxed and friendly than he used to be.

What is it with Jarvan? Ambition’s signature champion, its trademark hero, was Jarvan IV, “The Paragon of Demacia”: a royal top laner with an iconic spear. He is known for ramming this spear into the ground, creating a dueling circle from which the opponent cannot escape.

Throughout the history of LoL, special players have always been associated with the hero they were particularly good with or had done special with:

  • Supporter Mata is considered “the” thresh player
  • Tian has been linked to “Lee Sin” since Worlds 2019
  • at Ambition, the signature hero has been Jarvan IV since 2017

He was also chosen by Ambition as his personal Worlds skin.
