Changing Tides — The Oceanic stars headed overseas in 2020

Lawrence “Lost” Hui

Career highlights
  • 1x Rift Rivals Representative
  • 1x NA Academy Runner Up
  • 2x OPL Runner Up
  • 1x OCS winner

Lost first showed his face in the competitive scene in 2013, but soon left the scene for two years. In 2016, he returned with a splash into the OCS as he joined the Chiefs Black. Here, he absolutely dominated in the bot lane, with his team almost undefeated for the entire split. In 2017, he joined the Oceanic veterans in Legacy, playing in the OPL and even representing Oceania at Rift Rivals, but little did he know his ‘legacy’ was still yet to be established. 2018 was the year that Lost was discovered by the rest of the world as he was picked up by Echo Fox to play in their NA Academy team – he became the first New Zealand player to compete outside of the OPL.

Results of the Kiwi prodigy were soon seen, and he ended up placing 2nd in the first split of his North American debut. This NA success story will continue into 2020 as Lost has been picked up by TSM Academy. With some familiar faces from home on rival teams, he’ll have the advantage of prior and past knowledge of both regions and its players. After two successful years, Lost aims to prove that he’s here to stay.
