Huang Yi-tang (Chinese: 黃熠棠; pinyin: Huáng Yìtáng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: N̂g Ia̍h-tông), better known as Maple, is a Taiwanese professional League of Legends player for Team SoloMid, of the League Championship Series (LCS).

Huang found success domestically and internationally during his time as a member of the Flash Wolves, winning several LMS titles and topping many international events.[1][2] He has long been considered by many analysts and other professional players as one of the most mechanically skillful players from Taiwan.[3][4][5] Huang also played for LPL teams Suning[6] and LNG Esports.[7]


Due to their first-place finish at IEM Taipei, yoe Flash Wolves were invited to compete at the IEM Season IX - World Championship. After a Round 1 loss against SK Gaming, Maple and the team went on to beat Cloud9 in Round 1 of the losers bracket. Round 2 of the losers bracket saw the team's 2nd meeting of the tournament with SK Gaming. A win against the European team secured the yoe Flash Wolves a place in the bracket stage. They were eventually knocked out of the tournament in the semifinals after losing to Team SoloMid.[8]

With a second and third place LMS finish under their belt, the Flash Wolves had obtained a tie for the most LMS Championship Points behind AHQ, and were invited to the 2015 Taiwan Regional Finals. There, FW avenged their playoff loss by defeating Hong Kong Esports 3-2 and acquiring a spot in the 2015 Season World Championship.[9]

At the World Championship, the FW were expected by many analysts to have one of the weakest showings of any team in attendance. However, after a 4-2 group stage with wins over favorites KOO Tigers and Counter Logic Gaming, the Flash Wolves emerged first from groups, becoming the first team in two years to finish ahead of a Korean team in groups at Worlds. In the tournament quarterfinals, FW lost 1–3 to Origen, earning a top eight finish.[10]

Maple was one of the top players at the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational, in which Flash Wolves eventually finished third/fourth after losing to Counter Logic Gaming in the semi-finals.[11]
