Huang "leave" Xin Player History
Xin has become a household name in the Chinese Overwatch scene. He started his career with Miraculous Youngster back in 2016, taking home several gold medals in minor and premier tournaments. These tournaments include the summer Nexus Cup in 2017, the 2017 Overwatch Premier Series and the second season of the ESGL Overwatch Future League. However, on December 6th, 2017, Miraculous Youngster disbanded, and Xin has been without a team ever since.
Xin didn’t let this stop him, however. He played with Team China in the 2017 World Cup, but it was in 2018 that Xin found the spotlight. The young gun showed off his extensive hero pool to the world, showcasing his skills on many different heroes like Zarya, Doomfist and Brigitte to name a few. Now, Xin is joining the Chengdu Hunters. But because of his age, he will be unable to play during the current season but will be eligible for the Overwatch League when he turns 18 in October.
With such a flexible hero pool, it will be interesting to see where Xin fits into the roster come next season, especially if the meta either stays the same or changes up significantly.
