In what became known in the community as a "cinderella story," Hammers Kinetic upset matchup favorites, Liberation Y in the round of 32, as well as taking down VON Menace in the quarterfinals, eventually finishing fourth overall. In Winter VGL Qualifier 2, Kinetic made it to the round of 8 where they lost to first seeded Gankstars Sirius, but still qualified for the Winter Live Championships. Fear became known for his Ringo play in the Winter Live Championships, and helped Kinetic finish 5th overall.
Fear retired from competitive play after the Spring Season when Micshe joined Hammers Kinetic.
