His parents were originally not thrilled with this decision, and it took a couple of years for them to support him.
As a teenager, he and his friend used to play MTG and the Yugioh TCG. This friend discovered Hearthstone and introduced it to NaviOOT who immediately fell in love with it. He has been playing it as his main game since then.
As he continued playing, his friends were impressed with his gameplays and deck lists, so they encouraged him to try out streaming. He did so and found that he really enjoyed the sense of friendship and community that he developed with his chat. In 2016, he dropped out of university to focus on his streaming career. He continued to improve until he ranked high enough to qualify in international tournaments.
NaviOOT competed in his first international tournament in March 2016, when he competed in the Asia-Pacific Winter Championship. He ranked fourth in the tournament and continued to perform well for the remainder of the year. This inspired him to try make a career as a pro-player. This helped boost his confidence to continue focusing on his pro-Hearthstone and streaming careers rather than returning to university to compete is business degree.
His parents were obviously not thrilled with this decision, and it took a couple of years for them to support him.
While he doesn’t have set times, NaviOOT streams daily for between 4 – 9 hours per session.
