Deficio is a League of Legends player from Skanderborg, Denmark. Among the first games he played were Heroes of Might and Magic III and Age of Empires II. He then continued with Football Manager and World of Warcraft.

He initially started out as the manager for said team, but after the departure of XL Winner right before the Season 3 qualifiers, he picked up the support role alongside AD Carry player TheTess. The roster eventually left to become Ninjas in Pyjamas.
