Chen "Morning" Kuan-Ting (Hanzi: 陳冠廷) is a top laner. He was also previously the Taipei Assassins' top laner.
Morning was one of the players produced by the TeSL Draft Season in 2013, playing for the Cheetahs before moving onto his first professional team Wayi Spider. Morning would compete under Wayi Spider as both a top and mid laner, with Naz playing mid lane on the team as well. Morning's first serious competition took place at the Season 3 Taiwan Regional Finals, where his team Wayi Spider started the bracket with a quick 2-0 victory over the Gamania Bears, but would eventually be denied a chance at the Season 3 World Championship in the losers bracket by the very same Gamania Bears.
Despite Wayi Spider's failure to make it worlds, Morning's talent was clear and with Wayi Spider withdrawing from League of Legends, Morning would be acquired by the Taipei Assassins. Moving on to TPA in Season 4, Morning transitioned to a full-time mid laner and was part of one of the most dominant teams to participate in Garena Premier League history. Taipei Assassins had just overhauled its roster of the Season 2 World Championship winners, with BeBe the only victor remaining member on the squad, becoming a brand new team flourishing with talent from multiple disbanded TeSL organizations. Taipei Assassins topped out their group in 2014 GPL Winter, going 8-2 and eventually running the playoff bracket with a 3-0 over Full Louis, 3-2 victory over Saigon Jokers, and a 3-2 finals victory over Taipei Snipers. Following the event, TPA would compete at IEM Season VIII - World Championship where they would only muster a single win against Gambit Gaming before falling out of the group stage. Morning performed admirably in his first international event, but ultimately the team wilted.
2014 GPL Spring followed a similar suit as TPA once again topped their group, this time with a perfect 10-0 record, and ran through the bracket with a 3-0 over Insidious Gaming. 3-2 over TPS, and a 3-2 over ahq e-Sports Club in the finals. Soon after, TPA had the opportunity to attend All-Star Paris 2014 shortly after Spring, but failed to do much at this event either, falling 0-4 in the group stages.2014 GPL Summer was the most dominant GPL run yet, as TPA ran over their group with a 9-1 record and stamped out Insidious Gaming Rebirth, Saigon Fantastic Five, and ahq e-Sports Club, whilst only dropping a single game. Korean coach, Sim Sung-Soo, made the Assassins look cleaner and the team had high hopes looking toward the 2014 Season World Championship. Unfortunately, their hopes would come crashing down again, with Morning clearly showcasing a bad case of nerves, as the team went 1-5 in groups, only able to take a game off the Svenskeren-less SK Gaming.
2015 was rolling in and TPA were making a few roster changes after their disappointing worlds run. Among these changes, Morning would switch back to playing top lane for TPA, in order to make room for Singaporean star, Chawy. Morning went on with this Assassins to be one of the best teams in the region, but unfortunately could not compete with the upstart Flash Wolves in the preseason or regular season. TPA was reverse swept by the wolves at IEM Season IX - Taipei, losing their chance to compete at IEM World Championship in Katowice, and eventually falling second to the same wolves in the 2015 LMS Spring Season and dropping 3-0 to ahq e-Sports Club in the 2015 LMS Spring Playoffs, ending third.
Summer had Morning staying in the top lane, but after a pretty decent return to the position in Spring, he struggled in Summer. TPA struggled as a whole as well, even falling near the bottom of the standings during the regular season. Morning eventually was subbed out a few games for rookie top laner, Yue, but soon returned to his starting position. TPA and Morning had a bit of a renaissance toward the end of the year, nearly 2-0ing ahq e-Sports Club, but would eventually end at a club-worst fifth place, missing playoffs for the first time in team history.
However, TPA managed enough circuit points with their 3rd place in Spring and 5th place in Summer, so they had one more chance in the 2015 Season Taiwan Regionals. Unfortunately, tragedy struck and Chawy was retroactively banned for elo-boosting activity, forcing TPA to move Morning back to mid lane for the tournament. TPA matched up against 1st seed Hong Kong eSports as the 4th seed and were clear underdogs, but Morning's mid play on the likes of Lulu and Twisted Fate proved deadly as the lineup went 2-0. However, HKE would come back with the reverse sweep as Toyz adapted to Morning's split-push Twisted Fate, disappointing TPA once again.
2016 saw Morning's return to the top lane, in light of mid-lane trainee, FoFo, finally turning 17 years old. TPA proved to regain their form, battling among the top 3 teams for the majority of the 2016 LMS Spring Season and even 2-0d the Flash Wolves toward the end of the season. However, the team once again saw disappointment as TPA was upset at the beginning of the 2016 LMS Spring Playoffs, losing to Machi E-Sports in 5 games. Morning was outmatched by BoBo and TPA fell flat once more.
