rhyme first played with the inaugural Ninjas in Pyjamas Ninjas in Pyjamas Inactive roster but, when that project fizzled out, he joined Gen.G Gen.G Korea Rank #4 as one of the first Europeans to play abroad. Unable to reach VCT events in North America, rhyme eventually returned home to play for Giants Gaming Giants Gaming Europe Rank #12 as the team's IGL in the VCT EMEA.
Giants flew largely under the radar coming into the VCT EMEA, as their first showings were a modest top four at the G-Loot Clash and a top 16 at LOCK//IN. Even so, rhyme's men slowly solidified their place near the top of EMEA by inching to a fourth place in the regular season. In the playoffs, though, Giants fell short and were knocked out in the top six with two exits.
The team bounced back and qualified to Valorant Champions 2023 through the VCT EMEA LCQ, which they won without dropping a map. Much like Natus Vincere Natus Vincere Europe Rank #7 , the second team from the EMEA LCQ to reach Champions, Giants were eliminated just one round away from the playoffs and returned home with only a top 12 LAN showing to their name.
