Raymond "kaSing" Tsang (Hanzi: 曾家星) is the support for Red Bulls.

Biography

Raymond "kaSing" Tsang was born in London, UK in 1993. He has also lived in Hong Kong and currently lives in Berlin, Germany. Tsang grew up playing multiple titles, including Maplestory, Gunbound, and Dota 1 and 2. He switched to League of Legends when he had a computer that was unable to run any other game but eventually came to enjoy it. Outside of gaming, Tsang received a BTEC IT Level 3 Extended Diploma in college and plans to study computer science if he continues with his education.

Season 3

Yerrow's first major attempt to break into the League of Legends pro scene was with the team Dexter Is Actually Evil in early Season 3; however, he was unable to play in the Summer Promotion Tournament qualifier, and his team lost to Team Mistral. After leaving that team, KaSing went on to play for British Tea Time, a team that was acquired by Dignitas to form Team Dignitas UK. Yerrow stayed with Team Dignitas UK until January 2014, when the team disbanded.

2014 Season

Yerrow finally made it into the LCS with SUPA HOT CREW, which he joined in the fifth week of the summer split, replacing former starting support player wewillfailer; at this time he also changed his name to KaSing.

On October 2nd, 2014, KaSing and teammate Impaler both left SUPA HOT CREW. About a month later, on November 9th, it was announced that kaSing would be the new support player for Gamers2, after the departure of Rydle.[1] kaSing participated in the Expansion Tournament with Gamers2, who managed to beat Reason Gaming in the seeding game and Team Strix in Round 1. Gamers2 were knocked out in Round 2 after being beaten by n!faculty.

2015 Season

On the 9th of February, it was announced that KaSing would be joining H2k-Gaming.[2]

The Spring Split itself was relatively successful for kaSing and H2k. After a shaky start, results began to pick up for the team, largely thanks to kaSing's introduction to the roster. kaSing's impressive individual performances throughout the split, particularly on  Thresh, helped the team to a 3rd place finish in the regular season. In the Spring Playoffs, kaSing and the team beat Copenhagen Wolves in the quarterfinals, but were beaten in the semifinals in a close-fought series by eventual champions Fnatic. H2k-Gaming went on to pull off a shock victory over SK Gaming in the 3rd place match, securing themselves 50 Championship Points.

kaSing and the team began to impress from the very start of the Summer Split. H2k jostled for 2nd position with Origen throughout the regular season, with Fnatic way out in 1st place throughout. More impressive performances from kaSing on  Thresh ultimately helped the team to yet another 3rd place regular season finish. The Summer Playoffs also went well for kaSing and the team, beating Giants Gaming in the quarterfinals of the tournament. The were beaten in the semifinals by Origen, but went on to beat Unicorns Of Love in the 3rd place match, securing the team 70 Championship Points, which meant that the team had qualified for the 2015 World Championship as Europe's #2 seed.

At the 2015 World Championship, H2k were seeded into Group C along with SK Telecom T1, EDward Gaming, and wildcard team Bangkok Titans. In one of the only widely-predicted results of the tournament that came to pass, H2k won their games against BKT but lost the rest. kaSing and the team finished the group in 3rd place, meaning they would not advance to the knockout stage of the tournament.

2016 Season

In November, kaSing left H2k to join Team SoloMid on a trial basis for IEM San Jose.[3] While it was never announced whose decision it was to part ways, after a semifinal finish and loss to Origen, he did not remain with the team and instead returned to Europe, where he joined Team Vitality, a French organization that expended into League of Legends by purchasing Gambit Gaming's LCS slot. With himself, Cabochard, Shook, Nukeduck, and Hjärnan comprising the roster, the team was considered one of the top lineups in the LCS, and they finished the split in third place, behind the surprise first-place G2 Esports and second-place H2k. In the playoffs, however, they were upset by the sixth-place Fnatic and eliminated in the quarterfinals.
