In 2003, he competed in his first major tournament, part of the Tournament Go (TG) series, one of the first major Melee tournament series. In this, the fourth installment of the tournament series, Hoang won the singles (1 vs 1) tournament and lost in the doubles (2 vs 2) tournament to the winners of the first two TG tournaments.
Seven months later, in August 2003, Hoang attended and won TG5. This was the first tournament where he partnered with Joel Isai Alvarado (otherwise known as "Malva00") for doubles in a team known as El Chocolate Diablo. Their victory in the doubles tournament started a 2 ⁄2-year winning streak. They won every doubles tournament they entered until MLG Chicago in July 2006, where they were defeated by Azen and Chillindude829 in the finals and received second place. However, they reclaimed their title later that year in August at MLG Orlando where they defeated Azen and Chillindude829 6–3 in the finals.
For the next two years, he continued to win nearly every competition he entered. The worst loss he ever garnered in his competitive career was in August 2004 at TG6 where he placed 9th out of approximately 128 competitors. He traveled to Japan several times and defeated top players such as Aniki, Captain Jack, Masashi, Bombsoldier, Korius, and Mikael in the summer of 2005 and 2006.
Ken retired from competitive play in 2008. Although retired, he was regarded as one of the top players long after his departure from the tournament scene. In September 2006, Ken was nominated in "The Dangerous Five" as one of "The World's Most Dangerous Gamers" by Electronic Gaming Monthly, in which he was called "The Duper" for his fast, smart, and aggressive play.
In August 2008 it was announced that Hoang would be appearing on Survivor: Gabon, on the American television network CBS. He stated that he believed he was the underdog but hoped that it would garner him popular support.
Hoang returned to the game in 2012 after a five-year hiatus and placed 33rd in Kings of Cali. He has since attended several additional tournaments, including EVO 2013, where he placed 49th out of 696 participants, then the Smash tournament with the largest number of entrants in history.
In 2013, Hoang's career was profiled in the documentary series The Smash Brothers. At the end of the year, Ken was ranked in the final spot at 100th in Melee it on Me's 2013 SSBMRank listing of the best Melee players.
On March 18, 2014, Team Liquid announced that Hoang and KDJ would be joining their new Super Smash Bros. team. Ken rose to 58th in the 2014 SSBMRank.
At Apex 2015 Ken finished 81st. At Apex he also played PC Chris in a Salty Suite exhibition match and lost 3–2.
At EVO 2015 Ken finished 13th, his highest placing at a major since Super Champ Combo in 2007.
Currently, Ken Hoang is 36 years, 11 months and 21 days old. Ken Hoang will celebrate 37th birthday on a Monday 10th of October 2022.
