In the summer of 2020 Jian "Uzi" Zi-Hao, one of the most well-known and beloved esports athletes, retired from the pro scene due to a health issue. He had to hang up the mouse and keyboard and leave the game he loved behind.

In late 2021 he made the shocking decision to return to pro-play signing a contract with BiliBili gaming. Uzi was back in the LPL, getting fans hyped and excited for this legendary player.

BiliBili Gaming Woes in LPL Spring 2022

Throughout the 2022 LPL Spring Split, BiliBili gaming hasn’t been showing the results some fans have predicted. The team picked up Uzi in the off-season as well as young PCS bot laner Chiu “Doggo” Tzu-Chuan who was a stand-out player at the 2021 Mid-Season Invitational. Former FPX support Liu “Crisp” Qing-Song is also part of the roster.

With such a lineup, fans had wanted a little more of BiliBili gaming. They currently sit in eight place with a record of 7-6. In thirteen matches, Uzi only saw a total of the games of play. We have to remember that the LPL – same as the LCK – play Bo3 series.

With such little play-time, many fans have demanded the team to let Uzi play more. He was subbed in against Invictus Gaming in February and recently against Victory Five. Doggo, on the other hand, has seen the most play-time for the team.

Uzi Leaves Heartfelt Message on Weibo

After the loss to Victory Five, Uzi left a long message on Weibo for his fans to read. Twitter user gzeebee translated the post on their profile for international fans to understand as well.

[...]being able to return to the stage this time to compete is a very happy thing on its own. Right now, what others say about me isn’t what I’m most concerned with.

Since fans have wanted to see Uzi play more, due to the teams current standing, Uzi also spoke up for the younger team members of BiliBili gaming.

We are working hard together to try to overcome the difficulties in front of us. Indeed, there isn’t much time left, & my team & I will make the most of this time to adjust. Please also give my teammates a little more kindness. We are all one. We share honour & disgrace.

Uzi has accepted his role on the team and knows what he has to do to help and encourage the others to become better. Throughout his career, Uzi has won multiple LPL championships, earning the 2018 MSI trophy, but never managing to win the Summoner’s Cup.

BiliBili gaming is currently in eight place, so they are still on the cusp of staying within the LPL playoffs. The first ten teams make it to the playoffs, so BiliBili gaming still has a few more hurdles to jump over. Their next game is Saturday, March 12, 2022.
