Changing Tides — The Oceanic stars headed overseas in 2020

Victory “FBI” Huang

Career highlights
  • 1x MSI Representative
  • 1x OPL Winner
  • 1x Rift Rivals Representative

FBI burst onto the scene in Split 1 of 2017, as part of the Sin Gaming lineup, where he helped his squad qualify for Rift Rivals and come close to running the gauntlet and making the finals in split 2, falling at the last hurdle in a game five loss. Their attempts to replicate their “Sinderella” story in split 2 saw them run into a resurgent Chiefs line up in the second round, who sent them packing after a quick 3-0. 2018 saw FBI move to ORDER, where he saw a pair of 4th place finishes, failing to qualify for the Rift Rivals on home soil.

In 2019 FBI became a bomber, where he helped lead the AFL club to a first-place finish in the Regular season, before sweeping his former team ORDER in the grand final to lift his first OPL title and jet off to Vietnam for MSI Playins.

Despite his team finishing in 3rd place at 2-4 in a stacked group, the eyes of international teams were on him and he impressed. Shortly after Playins he departed the Bombers, bound for the Bright Lights of North America, joining the Golden Guardians Academy for the Summer split. After an impressive start to his NA career, he was called up to the Main Squad after Week 5, becoming the LCS starter for the rest of the split. A heartbreaking loss to OpTic Gaming in the final tiebreaker game saw the Guardians finish in seventh place, outside of the Playoffs and unable to qualify for the regular season.

2020 will see FBI become the full time starting AD for the Golden Guardians in the LCS, and despite low expectations of this squad by the community, FBI will want to bring his best for his team and try to once again live above the expectations set upon him as he did whilst at Sin Gaming.
