QOQ has competed among Overwatch's highest tiers since 2017 when he joined MVP Space to compete in APEX. In mid-2018 he joined RunAway as one of the players to replace the roster that left to join the Titans. He won two Contenders Korea titles with Runaway.
Since then, QOQ has competed with T1, the academy team of the Philadelphia Fusion. He and his teammates qualified for the playoffs of Contenders Korea this year but were eliminated in their first two playoff matches.
He comes in at a time that the Spark have relied on SASIN for off-tank duties because of Ria's wrist injury. QOQ's addition will keep the Spark at two active off-tank players because of Ria's long-term absence.
The Spark now have 12 players in total on their roster. The past month has been full of change for the Spark after a relatively quiet off-season. The team has added flex DPS Architect from the Shock and added former Titans head coach paJion as an assistant coach. DPS player bazzi has retired from the team, assistant coach yeah has left the team, and the franchise recently released Krystal who has been inactive all year.
The Spark's next match is this weekend against the Excelsior. It's their first match since the May Melee. They're currently 6-7 on the season.
