VONC started his competitive career in the Autumn season when he started VON Menace along with LoveIce4ever and PhoenIx. The team instantly made a splash in the competitive scene, surprising the community by making it to the finals of the first Autumn qualifiers where they lost to Ardent Alliance. In the second qualifier, VON made it to the finals again where they finished in first place, autumatically qualifying them for the first seed at the Autumn Live Championships. During their "cinderella story" run, VON became known for playing off-meta compositions and for their "pack-like" rotations and playstyle. At the Autumn Live Championships, VON finished 4th overall, losing to GS Vega in the third place match.
In the Winter Season, VONC remained on the roster to play in the Winter qualifiers. In qualifier 1, VON came in as the fourth seed and made it to the round of 8 where they were majorly upset by new team Hammers Kinetic in 2 games. In the second qualifier, they again met Kinetic in the round of 16 where they were upset 0-2 for the second time in a row.
In the Spring Season, VONC left VON Menace to play with Hardek and LostBoyToph on Nemesis Hydra. In the Spring VGL qualifiers, Nemesis finished 5-8th in both. In the first qualifier, they were knocked out by tournament winners Hammmers Kinetic and in the second qualifier by their sister team Nemesis Excrucio. This qualified Hydra for the Spring Live Championships for the third season in a row, this time as the 7th seed. At the Spring finals, VONC became known in the community for his exceptional Kestrel play and aggressive "no-fear-just-fight" playstyle. Hydra went on to finish 3-4th overall, losing to Hammers Velocity in the semi-finals.
Following the end of the Spring Season, VONC left Hydra to replace CullTheMeek as starting jungler on TSM. TSM struggled slightly in the first split of the Evil Eight as they adjusted to the new roster, but rebounded in split 2 finishing first overall at the end of it, qualifying them for the Summer Live Championships as the first seed.
