FeniX Domestic Career
Kim “FeniX” Jae-hun started his LoL career in 2013 under the name Miso. Back then, he was a part of the Eat Sleep Game lineup. However, their entire roster was quickly picked up by Jin Air Green Wings Falcons. This lineup made its presence known at the 2013 HOT6iX Champions Summer tournament where it went all the way to the Quarterfinals before losing 0-3 to SKT T1.
The Falcons also competed in 2013-2014 PANDORA.TV Champions Winter. Unfortunately, they had a weaker showing and failed to make it out of groups. Things didn’t go much better at the 2014 HOT6iX Champions Spring event, and Falcons couldn’t score a single win in the group stage. In May, FeniX left the team to play for Team Dragon Knights (TDK) in the Challenger Series. However, he ended up not playing any games for them.
At the end of the year, FeniX left TDK to join Team Curse for the 2015 NA LCS Spring Split. This was right when Team Curse was assimilated by Team Liquid, so Fenix ended up starting for an entirely different organization. At first, they had a middling showing, securing a 9-9 record over the regular season.
In the playoffs, they bounced back with a 3-0 victory against CLG. And while they did lose 2-3 to Cloud9 in the Semifinals, Team Liquid managed to take the bronze medal by winning the third place match versus Team Impulse. FeniX proved himself as a capable mid laner. He had strong laning and teamfighting, although he didn’t make many cross-map plays.
It seemed like summer would be even better for Team Liquid. They finished the regular season in first place and prepared for their second playoffs run. However, they suffered a crushing 1-3 defeat against TSM in the Semifinals. And even though they won another third place match, they still had to play in the Regional Finals to win a ticket to worlds. Despite the fact that TL were seeded directly into the finals, they fell 1-3 to the resurging Cloud9 lineup.
FeniX stayed with Team Liquid for the entire 2016. They had a rough start in spring but picked up the slack to qualify for the playoffs. In the Quarterfinals, they scored an easy 3-0 against NRG and moved on to face CLG. However, a 2-3 loss would knock them down to the third place match where TL got crushed by Immortals.
In the 2016 Summer Split, Team Liquid crumbled under the abundance of hectic roster moves. And while they went 9-9 in the regular season, their playoffs run ended with a swift 1-3 loss to CLG. They went on to fall to Team EnVyUs in the first round of the Regional Finals.
In the off-season, Team Liquid parted ways with their mid laner. FeniX found a new home on a Challenger Series team, Gold Coin United (GCU). Together with his teammates, he had a solid showing in the 2017 NA CS Spring Split and dominated the playoffs. But when the time came to play in the Promotion Tournament, GCU struggled to stand up to the NA LCS teams. FeniX, in particular, crumbled under the pressure and played below his usual standard. A similar narrative took place in summer, and ultimately, GCU were unable to advance to the big league.
When the franchising system was announced, FeniX joined Echo Fox for the 2018 NA LCS season.
