Former Invictus Gaming and Giants Gaming star Jeremy "HysteRiX" Tan called time on his competitive Rainbow Six Siege career today after five years.

He ends his career after a tough final stage, with his Tyde team having lost its two best players in the second mid-season transfer window. As a result, Tyde were winless all stage long and only managed to score their one and only point in their final game last week.

The Singaporean made his debut on the Hong Kong team uniqueMonster, before returning to the team that started with and returned to Tyde name in Stage 3 last month after five years, four organizations, and a variety of players.

HysteRiX made his international debut at the Allied Esports Minor in 2019 under the Aerowolf. His team then first qualified for an international event with the Season 10 ESL Pro League Finals, where they stunned the Europeans of Giants Gaming 2-1 in the quarter-finals.

Then signed by Giants Gaming themselves, he played at the Six Invitational 2020 and 2021, but failed to replicate his previous success in Season 10.

Invictus Gaming then signed the team in May 2021, under whom he played at the Mexico and Sweden Majors but failed to progress to the playoffs. A failed "super-team" attempt in the 2022 season then concluded in the exit of Invictus from Siege before the start of Stage 2, prompting a significant roster shuffle and a return to the Tyde name.

While role changes saw his recent statistical figures suffer, he was the best player on his team in Stage 1 of the 2021 APAC South season and both stages of the 2020 APAC North season. The latter two stages of 2021, meanwhile, saw him take a backseat as second-best to Matin "SpeakEasy" Yunos.

International trophies were a step too far for HysteRiX, as they have been for every other APAC player so far, but he leaves the competitive scene with at least one piece of silverware -- the APAC North 2020 November Regional Major.
