William "Blitz" Lee is an ex-professional Dota 2 player and coach for Thunderbirds. He is also one of the most popular Dota 2 streamers.
As a Player
August 28th, 2013 it was revealed that Blitz had decided to postpone returning to school to head to Korea to join the up-and-coming Korean Dota 2 scene. In November 2013 Blitz joined For Our Utopia (Previously known as FXO) to participate in NSL Season 2. After For Our Utopia was knocked out of Nexon Sponsorship League Season 2 by MVP Phoenix, Blitz left the team and it was disbanded.
As a Caster and Coach
Blitz made the move to becoming a full-time caster with joinDOTA on January 28th, 2015 following the disbandment of Team Zephyr. He was subsequently invited to cast The International 2015.. About a month before Shanghai Major, he chose to coach Team Liquid, and after the event took a break from casting to work as a coach. After working as a coach for several months, Blitz announced that he had left Team Liquid to cast The International 2016.
After The International concluded, Blitz announced in a blog post that he intended to take a break from casting to pursue a full time coaching or management role. On August 25, he was announced to be the new coach for Digital Chaos. Two months later, he joined MoonduckTV as a part time caster.
In April 2017, Blitz joined Digital Chaos's squad in leaving the organization to help form Thunderbirds.
