He was among the last professional Brood War players from China. Among others, he represented his country at the WCG 2009.

Wings of Liberty[edit]

TooDming was eliminated of 2011 Chinese Battle.net Invitational in group stage, but was yet invited to BlizzCon 2011 StarCraft II Invitational because the Chinese players who had qualified for the event could not attend due to VISA issues. In the first round of the BlizzCon, he defeated Ret despite the odds being against him, and then faced Mvp. Even though he managed to win a game against the three-times GSL champion, he was sent in loser's bracket by his opponent. In the lower bracket, TooDming would beat JazBas only to be eliminated by DIMAGA in the following round.

TooDming participated in G-League Season 3 where he managed to proceed to the playoffs, with a 4-0 record in group stage against SaSe, Lyn, Jim and SoftBall. He faced LoveCD in the semifinals, and despite a good 2-0 start from TooDming, his Protoss opponent eventually managed take 3 straight games in order to win the series.

He has qualified for NEO Star League Season 1 Round of 16. After placing 4th in Group B, he advanced to playoffs, defeating Lyn and went on to be defeated by eventual champion LoveCD, in the 3rd place match, he defeated another Brood War Zerg veteran F91, taking the 3rd place.

On April 19th 2012, team PanDarea was reported not to have paid its players for a long period, hence disbanding and making TooDming a free agent.[1]

On April 26th, 2012, he was reported to have joined Invictus Gaming. [2]

In late June, TooDming left iG, becoming a free agent.

After 3 months, TooDming obtained a personal sponsorship from Answer Gaming, which also supported DreAm (Chinese player).[3]

From July 2nd to July 15th, 2012, TooDming participated in the World Championship Series 2012 China. TooDming took down iek and LoveCD before falling to the losers bracket after losing to Jim. TooDming then went on to take down LoveTT, Infi, and then grabbed his revenge against Jim to advance into the finals bracket. TooDming took down XY and Top and went on to face Comm in the finals. TooDming had to settle for second place because he lost to Comm by a score of 0-2.

In November 2012, he attended the International E-Culture Festival 2012, placing second and winning a $5,000 prize.

Heart of the Swarm[edit]

Transferring between several teams[edit]

On March 4, 2013, TooDming announced on his weibo that he had parted away with Answer Gaming.[4]

On August 5, it was announced that TooDming had joined the Starcraft 2 division of Long Chen.[5]

On December 3rd, TooDming leaves Long Chen, and joins Zenith of Origin.[6]

2014 WCS America Season 1[edit]

On January 3, 2014, TooDming qualified for WCS America 2014 Season 1 Challenger League through the Chinese qualifier. On February 20, TooDming advanced to Ro16 of premier league after eliminating Scarlett with an impressive 360° surround in the final battle. By earning himself a prestigious spot in the offline stage, he was able to attend the offline stage of WCS series for the first time. In the next round, he had to face twice with Arthur, but was unfortunately defeated by the all-in strategy of his protoss opponent.

2014 WCS America Season 2[edit]

During season 2, TooDming once again showed an exciting performance in the group stage, especially in the back and forth series against Alicia, in which he managed to gain advantages in the early game. However, he could not convert the advantages into victories, with some over-committing battles that resulted in his 1-2 loss to Alicia. Nonetheless, the Chinese Zerg player, despite the disappointing defeat, was still able to snatch a Ro16 spot by beating Illusion twice in the group.

Trivia[edit]

  • Played Zerg in Brood War as well.
  • Tood sounds like tu dou which means potato in Chinese.
