As our main championship winning roster seeks to defend the Oceanic Pro League title, a sister team is slowly rising the ranks. Chiefs Black, our Oceanic Challenger Series team, is quietly putting up very solid results in a quest to join their compatriots in the OPL.

Now, meet the team that’s quietly tearing up the OCS, currently undefeated at a 2-0 record, with a mix of veteran and youngsters looking to stamp their mark in the Oceanic competitive scene.

Match Histories for OCS:

1. Previous teams or other experience: Two short term OOL teams, but not much given my age

2. Favourite champions: Lissandra, Quinn, Yasuo and Riven for carries but I also enjoy playing Maokai and Gnar as tanks

3. What do you do outside of league? Currently still in high school, but during my free time I like to play other games such as Call of Duty and Destiny, watching other regions’ competitive games such as LCS and LCK.

4. Favourite player internationally: Smeb

5. What are your expectations for Chiefs Black? Do my best to get 1st place in OCS, and support them during their promotion games as I’m not old enough to play in them!

6. How do you think Chiefs Black rank against other OCS teams? First by a decent margin.

Jungle: Michael “Zahe” Dunn

A multi-year veteran of the competitive scene, Zahe returns after a stint in the 2015 OPL Split 1.

3. What do you do outside of league? Currently a full time student in uni, studying Medical Science

5. What are your expectations for Chiefs Black? I feel like we have the best players in each role outside of the OPL, now looking to get that synergy and get a first place finish

6. How do you think Chiefs Black rank against other OCS teams? First if we can get our synergy right

Mid: Thomas “Omni” Trinh Dung

Our only player hailing from outside the ANZ region, Omni has been a force to reckon with in solo queue for a long time, particularly known for his assassin play.

Age: 22

Location: New Caledonia

1. Previous teams or other experience: First time playing in a competitive league, however previously had played for 4Not

2. Favourite champions: Don’t have a favourite, I will play strong meta champions but I prefer assassins

ADC: Lawrence “Zero” Hui

Don’t let his age fool you, Zero is as much a veteran of the Oceanic competitive scene as you can be. It would be weird to call his superstar ADC an ‘up and comer’ but once he is of age, he will make waves in the OPL.
