Michael "bigfatlp" Tang is most well known for having been the mid laner and later jungler for Counter Logic Gaming, though he has also been a part of several other teams.


bigfatlp started playing computer games at around the age of six and had played many different games and genres since then. He played in the League of Legends beta and joined Counter Logic Gaming in 2010. [1]

On January 15th, 2013, after being on the starting roster for over two and a half years for Counter Logic Gaming, Bigfatlp relinquished the AP Carry position to the recently acquired LiNk, citing lack of confidence in his own level of play. Shortly afterwards, he formed Azure Cats as a semi-competitive team. [2]

On May 26th, 2013, bigfatlp returned to Counter Logic Gaming's main roster as jungler and Chauster moved back to support replacing Aphromoo.[3]

On October 23rd, 2013, bigfatlp returned to being a sub for Counter Logic Gaming. [4]
