FanHOTS’ family moved to California when he was a child and started playing video games when he was seven years old, with StarCraft: Brood Wars being one of his favorites. After fully applying himself during high school, he went on to earn his degree in Economics at UC Berkeley. While there, he joined a college StarCraft team and won thousands of dollars while competing with them. After a couple of years, he switched over to maining Heroes of the Storm (HotS) as well as his college’s HotS team. He continued performing well and was soon noticed by Cloud 9.
After college, he worked part time as a data research analyst. He chose to work part time, as he wanted to pursue a gaming career. His parents were not initially crazy about this decision, but gradually came around as his winnings improved.
FanHOTS joined Cloud9’s HotS team in June 2015 and remained with them until December that year. He then joined a couple of other teams before signing with Tempo Storm at the end of 2017 where he stayed as part of their main roster until December 2018 when he decided to switch to their streaming team instead.
FanHOTS is estimated to have ~1,600 subscribers. Based on this, he should be earning at least $5,600 USD per month. This excludes additional income from his team salary, tournament winnings (which EsportsEarnings estimates at ~$660,000 USD), sponsorships, tips, and Twitch cheer bit donations. He is estimated to have won ~$149,000 USD from various tournaments.
