Saintvicious has been part of the competitive League of Legends scene since the early beta, starting as one of the original members of Team SoloMid (though he never competed with them in a major tournament). After departing TSM, he joined CLG where he made a name for himself with his unique jungling style. He has also gained a reputation for focusing on farming the jungle and only ganking a lane when a kill is guaranteed. Saintvicious preferred carry-oriented jungle champions despite the popularity of utility jungle champions in Season 2. Due to internal conflicts within the team, Saintvicious left CLG and joined Curse as part of a three team swap. He swiftly became his team's main shot caller, and under his leadership, Curse’s teamwork and synergy improved noticeably.
