Biography

Nukeduck is a League of Legends player hailing from Arendal, Norway. He first started playing Super Smash Bros Melee. He would move on to playing World of Warcraft, Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) but was not able to speak English back then (which hindered his chances at going further).

Early in Season 1, his floorball coach introduced Nukeduck and his friends to League of Legends. The Norwegian player had a lot of fun due to playing with them constantly, and he stuck to LoL ever since (unlike his friends).

After a Platinum rank finish in Season 1, he meteorically rose through the solo queue rankings, as his champion pool was well adapted to the Season 2 meta. Playing against the same people made him enjoy the game, just as he used to enjoy it when playing with his friends. He teamed up with puszu and MeDroiD on his first team. Competitive gaming made him step up as he would play against better players as his trials would shape his playstyle.

Nukeduck qualified to the Season 3 World Championship with his team Lemondogs, finishing 2nd in the Summer Playoffs. However, he moved to Ninjas in Pyjamas alongside mithy and Zorozero on the wake of Bjergsen's departure to Team SoloMid. As the team failed to hold its relegation spot against KMT, he participated in the EU Challenger Series until June 2nd 2014, when he and his teammate Mithy were suspended from the LCS and the Challenger Series for six months and subsequently released by Ninjas in Pyjamas.[1][2]

Trivia

  • 'Nuke' from his DotA days (when you massively chunk a champion's health with a single attack)
  • 'Duck' because it went along
  • Used to play basketball and floorball in the local scene before League of Legends.
  • His improvement in English coincided with his League of Legends early days, as he would have English courses at school.
  • His first champions were
    Ryze
    and
    Malzahar
  • Was primarily known for his
    Malzahar
    early in his career
