Taiwan’s Oil King has went from being known as the guy in the short shorts to a very consistent player in 2018. Over the course of the year, he has consistently made top 8s, and even taken down his first premier event in Xi’an, China.

While at Socal Regionals, BornFree caught up with Oil King, and discussed his beginnings in fighting games, as well as his choice to play Rashid — which he claims to not be the inspiration behind his name. He also discusses his thoughts on Street Fighter V currently.
