Jian Gong, more famously known as ZSMJ is one of the most famous carries in the Dota scene.
Early Career and FTD
Before ZSMJ played DotA, he was a player in another DotA-like game. In 2009, ZSMJ's perfomance in the CDEC led to FTD recruiting him. November 2009, during the SMM Grand National DotA Tournament in Malaysia. 20 minutes into the game against Kingsurf, FTD's Flying Courier containing ZSMJ's Sacred Relic was destroyed by Kingsurf's Beastmaster. Keeping his composure, ZSMJ farmed another Relic in 7 minutes. In the end, with efforts from captain 2009, turned the game and won against Kingsurf. They soon defeated cD in the final and won the SMM.
At the end of 2009, LGD sponsored FTD. In June 2010's ACG Chinese Qualifiers against EHOME, EHOME started off with an advantage, but ZSMJ's Medusa dragged it to late game. By 45 minutes, ZSMJ farmed up a Divine Rapier. However, in 52 minutes, ZSMJ's Medusa died and his Rapier was taken away. ZSMJ decided to buyback immediately and bought another Rapier to end the game. The game lasted 56 minutes, and ZSMJ had 720 creep kills.
In August 2011, Invictus Gaming took away 4 of ZSMJ's team members, leaving ZSMJ alone in LGD. LGD was reformed with xiao8 and co., but never recovered from the shock. After WDC in 2011, ZSMJ decided to leave LGD and go inactive.
In December 2012, after a long period of retirement, ZSMJ announced his return to the Dota scene.
ZSMJ wanted to form his own team, but later decided not to due to his lack of management skills. Instead, he joined Vici Gaming 2. On March 28, 2013, he was promoted to Vici Gaming 1. He left the team in September 2013.
ZSMJ joined NewBee in February 2014. He left the team in March 2014.
ZSMJ joined HGT in March 2014.

His ID is an acronym for 诸司马技(zhū sī mǎ jì) which comes from his earlier game of choice where it was commonplace to have a name with four characters in the typical poetic style and it stood for his desire to master playing Zhuge Liang and Sima Yi, two legendary strategists and historical characters. A common misconception is that it stands instead for 蛛丝马迹(zhū sī mǎ jì), which means non-obvious clues (left behind for detection).
