Jiizuke joined Team Forge on January 31. In May, Team Forge qualified to the 2016 EU Challenger Series Summer Season after going through the 2016 EU Challenger Series Summer Qualifier where they finished the group stage in first place and beat SK Gaming 3-1 in the finals. Jiizuke played for Team Forge in the 2016 EU Challenger Series Summer Season until Week 3, when Eika joined the team and Jiizuke was moved to a sub position. Team Forge ended in fifth position and thus didn’t qualify for the playoffs. Eika left the team on August 10 after failing to qualify.

Jiizuke played in the 2016 EU Challenger Series Spring Qualifier. The team ended up in first place in the group stage but failed to qualify after losing 3-0 to Fnatic Academy in the playoffs. Jiizuke left the team on February 23, after Takki, Gairi and Mocha had previously left in January.
Jiizuke joined Giants Only The Brave on March 6. Thanks to his addition, the team went from a 0-8 start until Week 4 of LVP SuperLiga Orange Season 12, to a 11-17 scoreline at the end of the regular season, ending up in sixth place and retaining the spot in the league. Due to his individual level, Jiizuke was awarded 2 Series MVP.

On June 1 the Giants Only The Brave squad was merged with the Giants Gaming roster in order to play in the 2017 EU Challenger Series Summer Season. The team ended up in first place, almost undefeated, only losing to FC Schalke 04 Esports during Week 5. Thanks to their first place finish, they qualified for the 2017 EU Challenger Series Summer Playoffs, where they beat Wind and Rain 3-0, and thus qualified for the 2018 EU LCS Spring Promotion. In the Spring Promotion tournament they qualified for the 2018 EU LCS Spring Season after beating Ninjas in Pyjamas 3-1 and FC Schalke 04 Esports 3-2.
In August, Giants Gaming played in the ESL Masters Series 2017 Malaga and won the tournament. Jiizuke’s team only lost one game during the event, against ThunderX3 Baskonia in the group stage, but later beat them 2-0 in the finals. In October, Jiizuke played the ESL Master Series 2017 Madrid with Giants Only The Brave. The team was thought to be the favorite to win the event by the fans, but went out in groups after losing two games.
During October and November, Jiizuke played in the LVP SuperLiga Orange Season 13 with Giants Only The Brave. The team finished in first place with a 13-1 game record. In the LVP SuperLiga Orange Season 13 Playoffs Giants faced Movistar Riders in the semifinals. After beating them with a comfortable 3-0 they faced MAD Lions E.C. in the finals.
