Biography

League of Legends Career

Toyz began playing League of Legends in spring 2011 when a friend introduced him to the game. He quit his first LoL game midway because he wasn't having any fun, but he tried a second game two hours later and fell in love with it.[1] Prior to League of Legends, Toyz also played games such as World of Warcraft, AION, Nobunaga's Ambition, Dragon Nest, and others.

On June 30th, 2013, Toyz retired from competitive League of Legends, citing carpal tunnel syndrome.[2] But on September 5th, 2013, Toyz announced via Facebook that he would return to the competitive game and join HK Attitude following improvement on his wrist injury. However, on December 31st, 2013, he announced that although his carpal tunnel syndrome was improving, he could not recover enough for sufficient practice, and thus could not become a pro player again. [3]

He was once again called and invited by Riot whether he wants to attend the All-Star Paris 2014 Hexakill event as a special guest of retired pro players along with Misaya, Reapered, Jatt and Shushei. Toyz and Misaya had the most votes and attended the Hexakill event.

It was announced on the 8th of September that he would be coaching European team Fnatic. He would be coaching them for all of the Season 4 World Championship.

After Fnatic was eliminated out of the Season 4 World Championship Group stage, on October 9th, 2014, Toyz announced via Facebook his return to the competitive game and joined Hong Kong Esports. It is believed an improvement to his wrist injury allows for him to return.[4]
