Li "TIME" Peinan is a Chinese Terran player currently playing for Newbee.
Heart of the Swarm
After he became the youngest Chinese player to reach GrandMaster on Korean server, Zenith of Origin invited him to join as an academy player. However, TIME participated in NeoTV Starcraft League 2015 as a member of his clan SoloAsR instead of ZoO due to some reasons. After his first offline tournament at World Leisure Games 2015, he left Zenith of Origin.
His best result in Premier tournaments during the Heart of the Swarm era is the Ro8 finish at MSI Masters Gaming Arena 2015: China & Japan Qualifier.
Legacy of the Void
Following his performance at GPL 2015 Season 3 Premier League, he was invited to become a member of X-Team at the beginning of 2016.
He became famous in NEO Star League 2016 International, where he beat MarineLorD by 2-0 through his strongest matchup (TvT).
In the 3rd place playoff of WESG 2017 - Asia-Pacific Qualifier, he beat Maru by 3-2 in an official offline tournament.
After One More was disbanded, TIME stayed as the member of Clan SCBoy for 4 months and then left. After being teamless for another 4 months, he joined Newbee in the summer of 2018.
In 2018 WCS Montreal, Time reached a new milestone in his SC2 career. He never expected himself to go that deep into the tournament. TIME defeated Has 3:2 who was the runner-up of 2018 WCS Valencia and advanced to the Quarterfinals. In Ro8, he surprised most people by dominating the series against HeRoMaRinE, one of the best EU Terran players, with 3:0. It has been a long time for a Chinese player standing in semifinals since MacSed & Jim in 2013. Even though Reynor ended Time's journey, nobody would doubt that he is the rising star in mainland China and might show stronger performance in the next year.
On April 2019, except losing to MaSa in 2019 WCS Winter AM, TIME saw his 4th trip to the Top 8 of a premier tournament.
Just one month after 2019 WCS Winter AM, TIME made his breakthrough and stood in front of Serral in Quarterfinals 2019 WCS Spring. Though feeling anxious when facing the world's best player, TIME still managed to grab one point after an unsuccessful Nydus timing attack from Serral. He said that he had seen the gap between him and the best player and what he could improve in the next tournament after that game.
On July 2019, TIME was defeated by ShoWTimE, the best German Protoss, with 1:3 in Quarterfinals of 2019 WCS Summer. Later, he was successfully qualified for Assembly Summer 2019 after defeating Scarlett for the first time. He revenged himself against ShoWTimE in Group Stage 2 with two decisive SCV pulls. He then faced Serral in Quarterfinals for the second time and showed his evolution after 3 months' practice. No one expected that TIME almost took down Serral in this BO5. He even led 2:1 in the series but Serral still made vigorous effort to turn the tables in the last two maps and defeated TIME with 3:2. During the winner's interview, the latest WCS Champion said that there was a moment he thought he might have lost the game. TIME showed his excellent control just like what ByuN did 3 years ago, and earned himself many fans worldwide.
On Aug 15, 2019 GSL vs. the World, he dominated one of the best Zerg player from Korea, soO. Nobody would doubt that TIME was now one of the best TERRAN player in the world.
After beating MaNa 3:1 and Astrea 3:0 in 2019 WCS Fall, TIME became the first China Mainland player to be qualified for2019 WCS Global Finals in Anaheim. It has been 8 years for Chinese audience to see their own player competing in the Global Finals. No matter what the results, TIME has initiated a new era of CHINESE StarCraft 2 scene.
- TIME is the youngest Chinese player to reach GrandMaster on Korean server, at the age of 14.
- Defeated Cloudy in his first official StarCraft II match when TIME was 14 years old. Then Cloudy reported him for not being old enough to sign up (players needed to be at least 16 years old).
- TIME, Coffee and Chick are thought to be three best Terran players of the new generation in mainland China.
- TIME (6359 days) beats Jim (6360 days) to be the youngest Chinese player winning a major tournament.
- When TIME dominated HeRoMaRinE with 3:0 and advanced to semifinals, more than 1 million audience in China cheered for him "李少牛逼" which means "TIME Overwhelming".
- Chinese audience often refer the relationship between TIME and iAsonu as 'son and father'.
- Due to the overall disappointing performance of Chinese players, TIME is sometimes referred as "李中堂"(Li Hung-Chang) by fans. A bit like Li Hung-Chang in the late Qing Dynasty, it is TIME who is leading the entire Chinese scene.
- TIME is referred as "李白" (Li Bai) as a simplified version of "李白给"(Li BAI-GEI) rather than the poet. The word "白给"(BAI-GEI) in Chinese usually refers to freebies (someone you can defeat without effort). TIME got this title due to his continuous failure against all kinds of opponents in China Team Championship 2019 Season 1.
- TIME is called "Mr. Ro8", as he finished nearly all premier tournaments he participated in 2019 with exact Ro8, no matter how competitive the tournament is.
