Biography[edit]

2018 Season[edit]

Tactical began his competitive career by competing for various amateur organizations between 2016 and 2017, including Team Exile Surge, Relentless Gaming, and Super Nova. In 2018, Tactical rejoined Super Nova and helped lead it to several 1st- and 2nd-place finishes in amateur tournaments such as the Upsurge Premier League and Alienware Game Arena. During this time, he also performed well in solo queue and received an invitation to the 2018 NA Scouting Grounds, where he was drafted onto Team Infernal Drake. His team placed 2nd at the tournament and Tactical was awarded a trophy for being one of the Top 5 Prospects.

2019 Season[edit]

At the beginning of the 2019 season, Tactical joined TSM Academy. Although the team had not performed well in the 2018 season, with Tactical and new support Treatz, the team finished 2nd in the regular season and 1st in playoffs. In Summer, the team's jungler Grig was moved to the main roster and Spica was brought on to replace him. Additionally, Tactical split play time with trainee bot laner Johnsun, who replaced Tactical in four regular season games. The team struggled to replicate its Spring success and finished the regular season in 4th place. In playoffs, the team underwent more roster changes as top laner Brandini was benched for disciplinary reasons and Grig swapped roles to replace him. Additionally, in the middle of playoffs Spica was moved to the main roster and Akaadian was moved to academy due to jungler problems on the main team. The team was eliminated in the semifinals.

2020 Season[edit]

Tactical moved to Team Liquid Academy at the beginning of the 2020 season. However, the main team's jungler problems again caused instability in the academy roster, as Team Liquid jungler Broxah could not play for the first three weeks of the season due to visa issues and academy jungler Shernfire was moved to the main roster to replace him. The academy roster played with last-minute substitution MikeYeung and started with a 5-game losing streak. Once Shernfire returned to the team in the fourth week, the team went on to win six of their next seven games. In Week 6, the main roster's bot laner Doublelift was unable to play due to sickness and Tactical was moved to the main roster to replace him. In his LCS debut, Tactical won both of his games and even put up an exceptional performance against 100 Thieves where he went 5/0/1, gained 72 more CS than his lane opponent Cody Sun, and won player of the game. After the impressive debut, and due to Doublelift's previous poor performance and motivation issues, Tactical was permanently moved to the main roster to split time with Doublelift on a week-by-week basis.
