Although he was unable to qualify for Season 3, Loner's performance was enough to allow him to compete in the A-Class tournaments of 2011.

Loner gained more recognition after placing second at the Blizzcon 2010 tournament. He remained undefeated going in to the finals but then dropped four straight games to Genius, whom he had sent to the losers' bracket earlier in what was long and close series. After Blizzcon Loner continued his dominance in his region by taking out both Luffy and Sen in qualifications for the IEM Season V - Southeast Asian Championship finals.
