Career[edit | edit source]
paiN Gaming[edit | edit source]
Following short showings on KT Rolster Arrows and Midas FIO, Olleh joined the Brazilian team paiN gaming. Though unable to secure a regional title, Olleh quickly became a fan favorite in Brazil. In an interview with Blitz Esports in February 2018, Olleh cited the support of Brazilian fans for his decision to continue his career in League of Legends.
Hong Kong Esports[edit | edit source]
Following brief appearances in Korea and Brazil, Olleh joined Hong Kong Esports in early 2015. He would compete in the LMS for four splits, finishing no higher than 2nd in the regular season and 3rd in the playoffs. After two years in the LMS, Olleh's contract with Hong Kong Esports was terminated following their 0-3 loss to ahq e-Sports Club.
Immortals[edit | edit source]
After losing the majority of their 2016 roster, Immortals signed a number of new players to rebuild their roster. Olleh was the last member to be announced, joining Cody Sun in the bottom-lane as Immortals' new support. Soon thereafter, the newly formed roster competed at IEM Season XI Gyeonggi, where Immortals had a respectable showing, being eliminated in the semifinals by Kongdoo Monster. In the 2017 NA LCS Spring Split, Olleh and Immortals went on to finish in 7th, narrowly missing the playoffs. However, the team rebounded in the Summer, finishing second in both the regular split and playoffs. Olleh's performance was given particular praise, earning him a spot on the 1st NA LCS All-pro Team for the 2017 Summer Split. Analysts have called this a major turning point in Olleh's career, not just in results but in play-style as well. Olleh also competed with Immortals at the 2017 League of Legends World Championship, his first major international event. Despite finishing the first half of the group stage with a 2-1 record, they would lose all of their following matches, failing to advance to the knock-out stage with a 2-5 record.
Team Liquid[edit | edit source]
Despite their performance in the latter half of 2017, Immortals was denied entry into the NA LCS Franchise. Following this, the contracts of Olleh and the other Immortals players were acquired by Team Liquid. Alongside his former teammates Pobelter and Xmithie as well as Doublelift and Impact, Olleh would finish in 4th place in the 2018 NA LCS Spring regular season. In the playoffs, Olleh and TL swept the first seed 100 Thieves 3-0, earning his first ever championship and qualifying for the 2018 Mid-Season Invitational.
