Gaming Origin

Ryan Shanks Ngo is around 20 to 23 years old. As we were unable to locate his real birthdate, it’s hard to confirm his actual age. However, he is known to be the younger brother of another well-recognized eSports player, ‘poised.’

Even, there is no information available on this relationship status. Shanks seems to be tight-lipped about his personal life, relationships, and friends.

However, this Canadian eSports player kicked off his Valorant career with Team Underrated. He later joined Dignitas, but NRG signed him soon after. NRG is a professional entertainment and gaming company in Los Angeles, California.

Following NRG’s desolate performance at the Masters, he resigned from the team. He then joined Rise. Fascinatingly, Ryan Ngo was given his IGN nickname “Shanks” after an animated character in One Piece named Shanks.

Professional Career

Shanks was a player on NRG’s Valorant roster for a few months. He played a significant role in qualifying the team for Challengers 1 and 3 of the VCT. But the team couldn’t make it to the NA Masters. Thus, Shanks mutually parted ways with NRG.

He decided to work full-time on content streaming and creation. But after only one year of leaving NRG, the North American eSports organization Rise signed Shanks up for a pro play. As mentioned, he got his IGN “Shanks” while playing for Rise. However, Ryan mainly used to play Skype and Jett for Rise.

In 2022, Shanks moved to the Team FaZe Clan and is still continuing to play as a streamer for the team to date.
