ShinKaigan began his official competitive career in Autumn 2015, when he played on Ardent Alliance with fellow players FlashX, MICSHE and iLoveJoseph. Shin was originally a substitute, but quickly gained a reputation for his exceptional play when subbed in and eventually the nickname "Super-sub Shin" after playing in a match at the airport shortly before his flight boarded. The team competed in Autumn qualiifer 1, where they finished 1st and earned a VIPL ticket to play in VIPL season 2. Due to iLoveJoseph not being able to travel to Korea to compete in VIPL, Shin traveled with the team to play at VIPL season 2. At VIPL, Alliance won their group 3-0 and went on to win the entire tournament. Due to their trip to VIPL, the team was unable to compete in Autumn qualifier 2 or the Autumn Live Championships.
Following their 1st place finish at VIPL, the team dropped their affiliation with Ardent and became solely Alliance. Following the transition to Alliance, the team picked up jungler CullTheMeek and Shin again moved to his desired position as a substitute. In the Winter Season, the team returned to North America to compete in the VGL qualifiers. In qualifier 1, they finished 2nd, losing in the finals to Gankstars Sirius. In Qualifier 2, they faced off against GSS again in the finals, but this time came out victorious and won the qualifier, automatically qualifying them for the Winter Live Championships as the first seed.
