Yip stopped playing Counter-Strike 1.6 for a time in favor of other games such as RuneScape, MapleStory, League of Legends and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. He eventually picked up Counter-Strike 1.6 again, but would only play surf maps and mods. Yip began playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in the summer of 2014 after a friend gifted him a copy.

Spontaneously flying to Los Angeles at the age of seventeen kicked off the competitive career of a young “Stewie2K.” Yip had garnered attention for his competitive PUG performances and heard rumors of a certain player’s professional career soon coming to an end opening the door for Yip.

He bided his time and waited for said player to relinquish his spot on the team. After Sean Gares announced he was leaving Cloud9, the team decided to pick up Yip with Gares’ personal recommendation. Yip joined Cloud9 on January 11, 2016 as an In-Game Leader. He signed the Cloud9 contract a few hours after his 18th birthday.

His addition was met with criticism from some veteran players. Esports journalist, Duncan “Thorin” Shields, questioned Yip’s addition to the Cloud9 roster as well as Yip’s abilities.

Yip played for 2 years with Cloud9 and won several tournaments with the team including ESL Pro League Season 4, DreamHack Open Denver 2017 and iBUYPOWER Masters 2017.

He tried out to replace Epitacio “TACO” de Melo’s spot on SK Gaming’s active lineup. After a three month period, Made in Brazil (MIBR) signed the SK Gaming roster to play under MIBR’s name.

MIBR traded Yip to Team Liquid for Epitácio “TACO” de Melo and head coach Wilton “zews” Prado in December 2018.
