Zhang "LaNm" Zhicheng is a professional Chinese Dota 2 player currently playing for.
LaNm was recruited by Nirvana.cn as a former pub star in 2010. The team had notable success, placing highly in a few LANs in China. LaNm left the team in 2011.I
LaNm was picked up by EHOME just before the release of the Dota 2 beta, and just in time to play in The International 2011. There, the team performed very well, only falling in the finals to Natus Vincere. LaNm would stay with the team until early 2012, when the team would disband.
TongFu bought out LaNm's contract from EHOME in March 2012. This team would not do well, and LaNm ended up leaving after two months.
LaNm returned to the reformed EHOME in May, though he was still under contract from TongFu. This would cause issues with ACE that would end up banning EHOME from competitive Dota 2, causing a second disband in late 2012.
LaNm joined RattleSnake in 2013 just before the eastern qualifiers of The International 2013, where they would come in second and move on to win the Wildcard match against Quantic Gaming. However, they would go on to do poorly in the main event, not placing high enough to earn part of the prize pool. After TI ended, LaNm left the team.
LaNm joined Team DK in late 2013. This team would go on to become known as one of the best teams in the world, dominating the Chinese scene and competing against Evil Geniuses in the finals of almost every international tournament throughout the first half of 2014. However, when DK came in a disappointing 4th place at The International 2014, the team disbanded. After this, LaNm announced he was retiring from professional Dota 2.
LaNm, along with other famous players BurNIng and rOtK, created the team Big God with the intention of competing in tournaments for recreation in late 2014. However, this team would go on to place 4th at Dota 2 Asia Championship 2015, beating strong teams like Cloud9 and Rave. After the event, the players were recruited back onto strong Chinese teams.
LaNm returned once again to EHOME in 2015, where he and his team would convincingly place first in The International 2015/China Qualifier.
