Biography

Chaox was originally born in Chengdu, China and lived in Nanjing, China until the age of seven, when his family moved to Montreal, Canada. At the age of 13, his family moved again to Long Island, New York. While playing for TSM, Chaox lived in the TSM Gaming House, first in New York and later in California. After his departure from Team SoloMid, Chaox moved back to his home in New York.

League of Legends Career

TSM Era and Departure

Chaox started his League of Legends career as Team SoloMid's support player. After Locodoco's departure from SoloMid, Chaox became the starting AD carry. He first played League of Legends during the beta, but disliked it at first and felt it was sub-par to Dota. After the announcement of the Season 1 prizepool, he stuck with the game. Chaox first started gaming at the age of 3 on the SNES, and later on became a semi-competitive player in Dota, World of Warcraft, and Heroes of Newerth before becoming a professional League of Legends player. He was recruited to Team SoloMid after playing with and against Reginald in solo queue; Reginald invited him to join.

On March 25th, 2013, Chaox was released from Team SoloMid, which Xpecial claimed arose from differences between Chaox and TSM's midlaner Reginald, however after Wildturtle's impressive performance with TSM Reginald asked every member who they would rather have on the team and they all chose Wildturtle over Chaox and his position was replaced by WildTurtle.[1][2]

Trip to Asia and Retirement

After the departure from Team SoloMid, Chaox visited China to learn more about e-Sports on April 14, 2013. The trip would last for two months in which he spent a month in China and another month in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Korea. [3] The trip to China was delayed because his mother burned his visa.[4] On April 23, Chaox finally arrived Shanghai, China.[5] Then, he stayed with Vici Gaming and visited their gaming house[6][7] as well as the "League of Legends" themed internet cafe three days later.[8] On April 27, Chaox appeared on Tencent LoL Pro League 2013 as a guest.[9] On April 28, 2013, Chaox finished his trip with Vici Gaming. Afterwards he stayed with Invictus Gaming, who also have a gaming house in Shanghai, China.[10][11] On May 13, 2013, Chaox finished his trip with Invictus Gaming and began staying with Royal Club, who also have a gaming house in Shanghai, China.[12] On May 14, 2013, Chaox left China and went to Hong Kong. On the next day, he joined a fans meeting in i-One internet cafe which held by Hong Kong Esports Limited. During the meeting, he shared his experience of e-Sports to fans and HK Attitude and answered questions from the fans.[13] On May 18, 2013, Chaox left Hong Kong. [14] Then, he went back to Shanghai, China and got ready to watch Tencent LoL Pro League 2013 Playoffs and All-Star Shanghai 2013. [15] On May 28th, 2013, Chaox arrived in Taiwan and stayed with Garena, whose company holds Taipei Assassins and Taipei Snipers. On June 6th, 2013, Chaox arrived in Singapore.[16] Chaox then went to South Korea and watched the Korean OGN Finals[17] where he stayed with MonteCristo and Chobra. As of June 20th, 2013, Chaox officially arrived back in North America.[18]

On June 21st, 2013, Chaox announced his retirement from competitive League of Legends in a vlog on his YouTube channel, [19] and is now streaming full time and playing League of Legends for fun. On August 20th and 21st, Chaox represented UNICEF in the eBay Charity Invitational 1v1 tournament[20]. He defeated OneBadBrad but lost to fabbbyyy in the semifinals on the next day.

Return to competitive League of Legends

On October 6th, 2013, Chaox announced that he is offically looking for a competitive team. [21] He completed his first match since coming out from retirement as a temporary AD substitute for Napkins in Disguise on North American Challenger League Week 3 Day 3.[22] He tried out for Team Coast, playing as a temporary sub ADC in Challenger Leagues/tournaments that Coast was competing in at the time, such as the NACL.[23] Chaox continues to stream regularly while providing informative and detailed analysis of the game. In April 2014, during his stream, Chaox announced that he might come back into the LCS scene again but did not mention which team he will be joining team. In May 2014 Chaox return to the LCS scene was confirmed on Saintvicious stream and he's now playing for Curse Academy. In June 2014, Team Coast announced Chaox as their new Coach[24] but he left the team in July 22nd to focus on competitive play instead[25].
