Biography

Career History

2014

Swift is a high-elo solo queue jungler from Korea, noted for his massive amount of ranked Lee Sin games played. He was signed to Xenics Storm when they scouted the Korean Challenger ladder for players to form their new roster. The team didn't have that much success and disbanded in February of 2014. It didn't take long for Swift to find another team, as he joined CJ Entus Frost 1 month later. The team competed at Bigfile NLB Spring 2014 and won the event, defeating NaJin Black Sword 3:1 in the Finals. They would then go on to play at SK Telecom LTE-A LoL Masters 2014, managing a 3rd place finish after falling to Samsung Galaxy.

2015

In January of 2015 Swift joined Qiao Gu Reapers. The team finished 3rd in the 2015 Demacia Cup Spring Season, losing to Team WE 2:3 in the 3rd place match. Qiao Gu managed to get 1st place in the 2015 LSPL Spring Playoffs, defeating Vici Potential Gaming 3:1 in the finals and auto-qualifying for the Summer Split LPL.

The team had an impressive first split in the LPL, finishing in 2nd place during the regular season with 7 wins, 14 draws and only 1 loss. In the playoffs, Qiao Gu was able to reach 2nd place only falling to LGD Gaming 2:3 in the finals. This meant that they had to play in the 2015 Regional Qualifiers for a chance to qualify to Worlds. Invictus Gaming proved to be Qiao Gu's undoing, defeating them 2:0 in Round 1 and 3:0 in the Loser's Bracket. As a result of this, Qiao Gu was unable to qualify for the 2015 World Championship.

Despite not qualifying for Worlds, Qiao Gu attended IEM Season X - Cologne and defeated Team Dignitas and Fnatic to reach the finals. They would however lose to a surging Ever 2:3 in the finals, ending their run at the tournament in 2nd place. Soon after the event, the team was picked up by Newbee but they would remain as Qiao Gu Reapers instead of re-branding.

2016

QG went on to attend the IEM Season X - World Championship but had a poor showing, falling to Fnatic 1:2 in Round 2 of the Loser's Bracket and finishing 5th/6th.

The 2016 Season of the LPL started well for Qiao Gu. They went undefeated in the first 4 weeks of play, winning 7 Bo3 matches and only dropping a single game. The remaining 6 weeks didn't go as well for them as they lost 5 series matches and only won 4. Despite their poor second half of the regular season, the team still finished 1st in their group and was automatically placed in the Semifinals. Their playoff run would not last long however. Qiao Gu was plagued with internal conflict and it was reported Doinb had problems with fellow teammate Swift. The team tried to bring back Dade to their line-up and play with him as starting mid laner but this was denied by the League of Legends Association of Chinese Esports. With their substitute mid laner Mortred suffering a hand injury and their other mid laner Borisal being unable to attend, Qiao Gu forfeited their Semifinal match vs EDG due to being unable to field a mid laner. The team was able to play in the 3rd place match with Peco as starting mid laner but they were swept 0:3 by Team WE. In the Summer Split, Newbee had a rough time and finished 5th in their group with 5 wins and 11 losses. Having to attend the 2017 Spring Promotion, Newbee lost 1-3 to LGD Gaming but defeated Star Horn Royal Club 3-0 and re-qualified for the LPL.

Trivia

  • If it weren't for CoCo, Swift would not have joined Frost.
  • Known for getting rejected by a fan during White Day (Korea's equivalent of Valentine's Day) while handing out candy.
  • Known for his phenomenal Lee Sin, Jarvan IV, and Kha'Zix play.
