Pilot Domestic Career
Na “Pilot” Woo-hyung began his LoL career on Alienware Arena. That said, he didn’t have any notable showings until he joined Jin Air Falcons. Together with his teammates, he attended 2014 HOT6iX Champions Summer. However, they went 0-2-1 (wins-ties-losses) in the group stage and failed to advance to the playoffs.
By the end of the year, a change to OGN’s rules forced Jin Air to merge Falcons with their sister team, Stealths. As for Pilot, he was set to split playtime with another AD carry, Cpt. Jack. Jin Air Green Wings had a mixed showing in 2015 SBENU Champions Spring. With a 7-7 record, they barely qualified for the playoffs where they suffered a 0-3 defeat at the hand of CJ Entus.
They picked up the slack in summer. Unfortunately, the level of competition increased to the point where Jin Air’s 10-8 record wasn’t enough to break into the playoffs. Still, they had another chance in the Regional Finals. There, Jin Air scored back-to-back victories against Najin e-mFire and CJ Entus before preparing to face KT Rolster in the finals. They entered the series with high hopes, but KT put an end to these ambitions with a swift 3-1 victory.
Jin Air tried to bounce back at the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup. They had a promising start with a 2-1 victory over Incredible Miracle, but their following series against CJ Entus ended with a disappointing 0-2 loss.
Jin Air finally regained their momentum in the 2016 LCK Spring Split. This time, their 10-8 regular season run amounted to a fourth-place finish, which allowed them to break into the playoffs. But even though Jin Air managed to 2-0 their first opponent in Afreeca Freecs, they suffered a 1-3 defeat in the next match against SKT T1.
They lost a lot of ground in the 2016 LCK Summer Split. With a 7-11 record, Jin Air barely squeezed into the Regional Finals where they fell in a close 5-game series against Afreeca Freecs. After such a disappointing showing, Pilot left Jin Air Green Wings to play for Paris-Saint Germain (PSG) in the EU CS.
The organization had a rocky start in the 2017 Spring Split. And even though PSG picked up the pace and qualified for the playoffs, their run ended with a 2-3 loss to Fnatic Academy. Pilot spent the rest of the season on the Chinese DS Gaming lineup, although he didn’t play any notable games.
In the off-season, he joined MVP to share playtime with MaHa in the 2018 LCK Spring Split.
Pilot International Tournaments
On Jin Air Green Wings, Pilot went to his first international tournament, IEM Season 10 San Jose. His team had the advantage of being seeded directly in the Semifinals. But a quick 0-2 loss to CLG eliminated them out of the competition.
