Eugene "Pobelter" Park is the mid laner for FlyQuest.
Pobelter had previously played for Curse Gaming as their top laner, however, he left due to his inability to move into the team's gaming house and began playing for for Meat Playground as their AP carry. He would leave MP to join Curse's sibling team, Curse Academy as their mid laner since too young to join the LCS, he would be active in the growing Challenger scene.
In October 2013, it would be announced that Pobelter would rejoin Curse after their roster changes to become their new mid laner.After 6 days, Pobelter was released from Team Curse due to his attending school. After he was released, he played briefly for ggLA in the mid lane for Challenger Leagues such as the NACL.
When Evil Geniuses.NA moved from Europe to North America with Snoopeh, Yellowpete, and Krepo, Pobelter was brought in to fill their midlane position, while InnoX became their toplaner. Inheriting Velocity eSports's spot in the 2014 Spring Promotion Tournament, EG played against Determined Gaming and swept the series 3-0, qualifying for the LCS Spring Split.
Evil Geniuses placed seventh at the end of the Spring Split, with an overall 8-20 record, one game ahead of XDG; this record sent them directly to the Summer Promotion Tournament, without participating in the playoffs. In the Promotion Tournament, they were matched against Challenger team Cloud 9 Tempest, whom they defeated 3-1 and so qualified once again for the Summer Split.
In the summer split, Evil Geniuses barely finished the regular season in seventh place, finishing with one win more than compLexity, with an 11-17 record after finishing the split with a 4-0 final week. This meant EG would play in the Spring Promotion, facing Team Coast, who were playing with last-minute Korean players Miracle and Ringer in the solo lanes. EG won 3-0 and took their a spot in the 2015 LCS Spring Split.
Pobelter re-signed with Evil Geniuses, which then rebranded as Winterfox. He also won the Best Zed NA Tournament, defeating huhi 3-1 in the finals. Due to issues with Avalon and Helios's visas in the first week and multiple bottom lane substitutions throughout the split, Pobelter was the only member of Winterfox to play every game with the team in the same position. They finished in eighth place with a 7-11 record, forced into relegations. Given the choice between playing against Team Dragon Knights and Team Fusion, Winterfox chose the former, despite their higher placement in the Challenger playoffs. Due to starting mid laner Kyle leaving the team prior to the tournament, TDK started Alex Ich in mid lane, and Winterfox lost the series 1-3 and sending them to the Challenger series. Pobelter left the team and joined Counter Logic Gaming along with HuHi in time for the summer split. Despite this announcement, Pobelter would play every game for CLG in the summer split.
Echoing their spring split performance, CLG started the summer split strong, in first place at the end of each of the first four weeks and then lost four games in a row to finish tied for fifth after week six. This time, however, they rebounded and ended the season in second, behind Team Liquid and with a 13-5 record. They received a bye in the first round of the playoffs and then swept both Team Impulse and Team SoloMid 3-0, to win their first LAN event since MLG Raleigh in 2011 nearly four years prior and receive North America's top seed to Worlds. Despite having a relatively easy group draw with KOO Tigers, Flash Wolves, and paiN Gaming, CLG didn't advance from their Worlds group, ending with a 2-4 record including a loss to paiN.
Despite the fact that HuHi hadn't gotten to play a single game live with the team during the 2015 season, in October CLG announced that he would replace Pobelter for the 2016 season as starting mid laner. Pobelter joined the new LCS team Immortals instead, with a roster including himself, Huni and Reignover from Fnatic, WildTurtle from TSM, and Adrian from Team Impulse.
Expected to be a top team in the LCS, Immortals initially exceeded all expectations as they went undefeated for the first six weeks of the season before losing one game to reigning champions Counter Logic Gaming in week 7. They won the rest of their regular season games, but as the season progressed further they looked weaker and weaker as a team, and even seemed to falter against the last-place Team Dignitas, needing to come back against them to pull out a win. With a top seed clinched into the playoffs, Immortals were guaranteed to face the lowest-seed team that won in the quarterfinals. That team ended up being Team Solomid, who were on a strong upswing after a sixth-place regular season finish. With questionable drafts including a Lucian top for Huni in game 1, Urgot mid for Pobelter in game 2, and three games of Karma support for Adrian as well as not a single contest of the strongly-in-meta Ekko, Immortals lost 3-0 to TSM. They came back the next week to beat Team Liquid and finish in third place overall.
Expectations for Immortals going into the Summer Season were again high, after they were one of only three NA teams not to change any players in the mid-season break, and while they nearly repeated their spring split record - this time dropping only two series in the new best of 3 format as opposed to 1 best of 1 - they were indisputably the second-best team in the league. TSM with new rookie star support Biofrost went 17-1 in series, and they bested Immortals in both of their head-to-head series. Immortals still had a playoff bye, and so they were able to avoid TSM in the semis, instead facing the third-place Cloud9. In a back-and-forth five-game series, Immortals were upset and faced CLG in the third-place match, which they came back from a disastrous game 1 to win 3-2. Unfortunately, despite their combined 33-3 regular season record, Immortals only had 120 Championship Points compared to CLG's 130, and so it was CLG who won the automatic second-place 2016 Season World Championship seed from North America. And even though Immortals had the top seed in the Regional Finals, they were upset once again by Cloud9, and their season ended short of Worlds.
In the Spring Split Immortals was for the most part a middle of the pack team. Although they showed promise they could never break into the Top 3. The team finished in 7th place, barely missing out on the playoffs. In the Summer Split after bringing in SSONG as their new coach, Immortals' performance turned around completely and they stayed in the Top 3 throughout the whole regular split. The team finished the regular season in 2nd place with a 14-4 record. Their performance in the Summer Playoffs was also excellent as they took down Counter Logic Gaming 3-0 in the semifinals and became the first team in NA LCS history since 2013 outside of CLG, TSM and C9 to reach the finals. Despite their accomplishment however, they were defeated 1-3 by TSM in the finals and finished 2nd place. Despite the loss they still managed to qualify for the 2017 Season World Championship via championship points. At Worlds Immortals was seeded in Group B along with Longzhu Gaming, Fnatic and GIGABYTE Marines. Despite a good 2-1 start in Week 1 they couldn't follow up on it in Week 2 and went 0-3. Having to play a tiebreaker in order to advance forward, Immortals faced Fnatic and lost the game which knocked them out of Worlds. Pobelter left Immortals in November of 2017 after the team was not accepted in the newly franchised NA LCS. He would join Team Liquid in November of 2017.
