Due to inactivity of his Zenith teammates, hyhy joined Kingsurf in September 2008.[3]

[edit] Aeon

With better sponsorship, hyhy's Aeon switched to Scythe Gaming.[6] However, Scythe failed to qualify for WDC and disappointed in ESTC.

[edit] Nirvana.my

With the departure of Mushi to CCM in China, hyhy was added to the ranks of Nirvana.my to play in the 2010 SMM.[7] However, in the SMM, they only grabbed a 6th placing.[8]

[edit] Scythe reformed

After the disappointing performance in SMM, hyhy decided to leave Nirvana.my.[9] Soon after, hyhy became a part of the Scythe Gaming reform with players such as Koy and YamateH.[10] hyhy won the ADC with Scythe,[11] and also placed second in the IPDC.[12] However, due to Scythe's financial troubles after the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, YamateH and Koy decided to leave the team.[13] Scythe then spent long periods in inactivity.

With Scythe Gaming invited to Dota 2 The International, hyhy reformed a Singaporean team on short notice, leaving them only a week to practice.[14] Nevertheless, Scythe surprised everyone with a wonderful showing at Germany, beating GGnet, nevo, MYM and EHOME before claiming third.[15]

[edit] MYM

Hyhy joined MYM along with the rest of the Scythe team and Malaysian superstar YamateH right after the conclusion of The International.[16] Their first appearance was at ESTC and were eliminated in the quarter-finals.[17]

[edit] Zenith reformed

After having an unstable roster in MYM, iceiceice recommended that they reform under the legendary team name, Zenith.
