Yang "kRYST4L" Fan (Hanzi: 杨藩) is a League of Legends esports player, previously bot laner for Oh My God.
In April of 2014 Snake's two teams, Snake.Q and Snake.S merged into one team. The line-up consisted of Flandre, Reborn, Copy (now BAKA), F4n2Fan (now kRYST4L) and CoLiN. The team got 2nd place at the International Esports Tournament 2014 and after a good performance finished 2nd in the 2014 LSPL Summer Season. Despite a great LSPL performance, Snake got knocked out in Group Stage #1 of the X Championship 1 and placed 5th-8th in 4 consecutive tournaments.
Because of their LSPL placement, Snake qualified for the 2015 LPL Spring Split. The team immediately impacted the Chinese league and was consistent throughout the entire regular split. They finished 2nd with 10 wins, 10 draws and 2 losses. In the Playoffs Snake narrowly defeated Team King 3-2 in the Quarterfinals but lost to LGD Gaming in an 0-3 sweep during the Semifinals and then lost the third-place match 1-3 against Invictus Gaming. The 2015 LPL Summer Split wasn't much better for Snake as the team finished 4th during the regular season with 7 wins, 10 draws and 5 losses. Despite their worse regular season finish, Snake did qualify for the Playoffs but got knocked out in the 4th round after a 1-3 loss to LGD Gaming. Earning enough points to attend the China Regional Finals 2015, Snake tried to qualify for Worlds there but couldn't win a single game and lost 0-2 to EDward Gaming in Round 1 of the Winner's Bracket and 0-3 to Qiao Gu Reapers in Round 1 of the Loser's Bracket. This ended Snake's 2015 season.
In the 2016 Season with a a slightly different roster, Snake entered the 2016 LPL Spring Split with decent expectations. The team had a solid regular season and finished 3rd with 10 wins and 6 losses. This would place them in Round 1 of Bracket A against Invictus Gaming. Despite their poor results vs IG in 2015, Snake managed to sweep them 3-0 and moved on to face EDward Gaming in the Quarterfinals. They however got swept themselves 0-3 which ended their playoffs run and put them in 5th-6th place. In the regular season of the Summer Split, Snake finished 2nd in their group. Qualifying for the playoffs, they finished 5th-6th after a 1-3 loss to I May. Earning the right to attend the China Regional Finals 2016 for China, Snake would play two brutal five game Bo5s in one day. Despite their 3-2 win over Vici Gaming, they fell 2-3 to Team WE and could not qualify for Worlds. During the off-season they also earned a 3rd-4th place finish at the finals of the 2016 Demacia Cup. They lost 2-3 to I May in the semifinals. They also finished 3rd at NEST 2016 after a 1-2 loss to LGD Gaming.
Snake's 2017 Season was even worse than the previous year. kRYST4L switched over to Support in Spring. Snake finished the 2017 LPL Spring Season 5th place in their group and had to attend the Promotion Tournament. They defeated Vici Gaming 3-0 to keep their LPL spot. Their 2017 Demacia Cup performance wasn't very good as well and they finished 13th-20th after a 1-2 loss to Red Wolf Gaming. In the Summer Season kRYST4L switched back to AD Carry. They finished 4th in their group and barely made the playoffs. They however lost 0-3 to Newbee in the first round and were quickly eliminated which ended their 2017 season.
