Orange_HS started playing Magic: The Gathering (MTG) when he was twelve years old, after one of his friends introduced him to it. He fell in love with it, and the two of them spent most of their free time playing MTG at locales during his teens.
Although he had been interested in trying out World of Warcraft just before he discovered MTG, his mom told him that it was too expensive.
He entered his first professional MTG tournament when he was fifteen years old and continued to participate in them into his twenties. It was his love for card games that motivated him to try out Hearthstone beta when it was released in 2014, and his experience at Magic is what helped him to quickly climb the ladder and participate in pro-Hearthstone tournaments 2015. He continued to participate in MTG tournaments in 2015 but decided to focus on Hearthstone the following year.
In January 2015, he joined Team Achron and remained with them for fifteen months. In later 2016, he joined Team Alliance and moved into their team house in February 2017. In 2017, he also briefly returned to MTG and still occasionally streams MTG Arena.
His family are supportive and usually waatch his tournament matches online, and have also occasionally traveled to watch him compete in the World Championships.
He has a long-term girlfriend.
He doesn’t have a set schedule due to his professional commitments.

Above all, never blame RNG. Rather, you should blame your own plays that you could have done differently. Regularly practicing with a friend is also a good way to progress, while giving feedback about each other’s plays.
