Jian "Uzi" Zi-Hao (简自豪) is the AD Carry for Royal Never Give Up.
Uzi started his career on Royal Club. He joined the team in October of 2012 and quickly rose to prominence as a highly skilled mechanical player.
Royal Club performed well domestically and qualified for the Season 3 World Championship after becoming the Chinese champion. Because of their status as first seed from China, the team was automatically put into the Quarterfinals. Their first match was against their rivals from China, OMG. Royal Club was able to defeat them 2-0 to advance. In the Semifinals they faced off against Fnatic and despite dropping a game, they won 3-1 and moved onto the finals. Their final opponent was SK Telecom T1 but despite their huge momentum, they were unable to even take a game off the very powerful SKT squad and got swept 0-3 and ended the tournament with a respectable 2nd place finish.
In 2014, Royal Club re-branded to Star Horn Royal Club. With Tabe and Wh1t3zZ's retirement, Uzi moved to mid lane. The transition however didn't go so well and Uzi moved back to ADC in the Summer season of the LPL. The team brought Korean imports inSec and Zero to the line-up and despite inconsistent performances, they qualified for the 2014 World Championship. At Worlds, they were placed in Group B along with Taipei Assassins, Team SoloMid and SK Gaming. Only dropping a game to Team SoloMid, Star Horn Royal Club advanced to the Quarterfinals where they would face Edward Gaming. After a very close series, they emerged victorious 3-2 and advanced. In the Semifinals they would face off against their other Chinese rivals OMG. In yet another very close and thrilling series, the team defeated OMG and advanced to the finals. This made Uzi the first (and only) player to play in 2 consecutive World Finals. Star Horn Royal Club wasn't given much of a chance because their opponent in the finals was the unstoppable Samsung Galaxy White. Despite putting up a good fight and winning a game, they were ultimately defeated and lost 1-3 ending their run in 2nd place.
During the 2015 Season, Uzi moved to OMG in one of the biggest roster moves in LPL history. Despite the hype around the transfer, it didn't turn out so well for OMG. While they started off strong in the first weeks of the Spring Split, they started dropping off and were hit with internal issues. Ultimately they got swept 0-3 at the 2015 LPL Spring Split Playoffs by LGD Gaming in the Quarterfinals. The Summer Split didn't go much better for OMG. They finished 7th in the regular season and in the playoffs they were only able to defeat Master3 3-0 in the first round before falling 1-3 to Vici Gaming.
Uzi left OMG and joined Qiao Gu Reapers in December of 2015. QG went on to attend the IEM Season X - World Championship but had a poor showing, falling to Fnatic 1:2 in Round 2 of the Loser's Bracket and finishing 5th/6th. The 2016 Season of the LPL started well for Qiao Gu. They wend undefeated in the first 4 weeks of play winning 7 Bo3 matches and only dropping a single game. The remaining 6 weeks didn't go as well for them as they lost 5 series matches and only won 4. Despite their poor second half of the regular season, the team still finished 1st in their group and was automatically placed in the Semifinals. Their playoff run would not last long however. Qiao Gu was plagued with internal conflict and it was reported Doinb had problems with fellow teammate Swift. The team tried to bring back Dade to their line-up and play with him as starting mid laner but this was denied by the League of Legends Association of Chinese Esports. With their substitute mid laner Mortred suffering a hand injury and their other mid laner Borisal being unable to attend, Qiao Gu forfeited their Semifinal match vs EDG due to being unable to field a mid laner. The team was able to play in the 3rd place match with Peco as starting mid laner but they were swept 0:3 by Team WE.
In the summer of 2016, Uzi would leave QG and join Royal Never Give Up. RNG's Summer Split did not go as well as expected. While they were able to get 1st place in Group B with 13 wins and 3 losses, their performance in the playoffs dropped and they would lose convincingly to Edward Gaming in the Summer Finals. Still, they would qualify for the 2016 World Championship through championship points. At Worlds Royal Never Give Up was drawn in Group D with Team SoloMid, Samsung Galaxy and Splyce. After winning twice against TSM, Royal was able to advance to the Quarterfinals as 2nd place in their team due to their head to head record against TSM. In the Quarterfinals they would face off against SK Telecom T1 and lost 1-3. Post-worlds they would have a few tournament appearances. First at the 2016 Demacia Cup where they finished 3rd/4th after losing 1-3 to Edward Gaming in the semifinals and then at 2016 NEST where they would finish 4th after two consecutive series losses against Invictus Gaming and Snake Esports. Uzi would later attend the 2016 All-Star Event winning it with Team Ice and also winning the 1v1 tournament after taking down Maple in the finals.

Royal Never Give Up

- Joined Royal Club when he was only 15.
- Royal Clubs shot caller for three seasons.
- As a highly mechanical AD carry, he would have a high expectation for his support, with Tabe being the only one he deemed worthy of being in equal authority in the bot lane with all the 3 support changes in S2 and S3.
- Notorious for his temper and condescending attitude.
- Mechanics alone, he was considered to be even superior to WeiXiao, but lacked an adequate team to rank high in the standings.
- Nicknamed "小狗", meaning puppy in Chinese, resulting in the general strategy that Royal Club Huang Zu uses to be dubbed "养狗战术" which means "Raise the puppy", a similar strategy and team composition Counter Logic Gaming used to "Protect the Doublelift", as both AD carries had great potential to carry games with late game hyper-carries.
- Known for his excellent mechanics at the Season 3 World Championship. Uzi's Incredible Vayne mechanics! Royal vs OMG
- He believes that the sole measure of worth of an ADC is how hard he carries the team and most specifically how much damage he does. Another tenet of his philosophy is that the main job of the ADC is to practice mechanics and tactics. Never miss farm in lane, always outtrade the enemy, and keep track of everyone in team fights. The ADC needs to be a robotic brick, never wavering, and always at the absolute peak of perfect micro play.
- Called "The Real Carry of Royal Club" by PDD 
- Was second place in the 2014 LPL Summer Season MVP Standings behind OMG's Cool
- LMQ coach Eno Li has expressed desire to bring Uzi to North America to play for his team.
- The first player in the history of League of Legends to make two World Championship Finals, and back to back.
- Called "The Best AD Carry in the World" by Imp during S4 World Championship.
- Considered one of the best, if not the best AD carry of season three and four, with only Deft and Imp to rival him.
