How Duan ‘Candice’ Yushuang Became the Face of League of Legends in China

Nov.12,2019 11:39:09

Unlike some other well-known esports hosts, such as Eefje “sjokz” Depoortere or Paul “Redeye” Chaloner, who’ve had somewhere between six to even 20 years of esports hosting experience, Yushuang joined the esports industry only three years ago. In 2015, she graduated from the Communication University of China with a bachelor’s degree in English Broadcasting and Anchoring. One year later, she made her journey into esports.

During the 2019 League of Legends World Championships group stage, Duan “Candice” Yushuang took a 15-hour flight from Berlin to Shanghai to host the game’s 10th-anniversary celebration. At this event, Riot Games revealed four new game projects, finally proving the plurality of its company name. It was a significant milestone for the publisher, one which Yushuang had to be there for. As well as being the host of the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) in China, she has also now become the face of the game in the region.

“It was in the April of 2016, I saw Riot Games was looking for bilingual esports host in Shanghai and I just applied [for] the job,” Yushuang told The Esports Observer. “It was a part-time job and I had a full-time job in Beijing as a broadcasting DJ in a radio station. Every weekend, I needed to get the 6 am flight on Friday morning from Beijing to Shanghai, and take the latest flight to return to Beijing on Sunday. Those transport fees were paid by myself.”

Yushuang kept this working mode throughout a full season of LPL in 2016. Whatever risks she paid, she earned back through her passion for League of Legends. “I didn’t pay much attention to my income from the League of Legends esports scene, I just love the game and the community.”
