Pierre "Steelback" Medjaldi is the AD Carry for Vitality.
Steeelback's first stint on a competitive team was with GSI Gaming, though he did not compete in any major tournaments with the organization.
On November 9th, 2014, Steeelback joined the newly formed SK Gaming Prime together with beansu, Trashy, Godbro and Hiiva, in order to compete in the 2015 EU LCS Expansion Tournament. The team were knocked out in Round 1 of the online phase after being beaten by Reason Gaming. Despite this disappointment, Steeelback and the team also competed in 2014 Black Monster Cup Europe Winter.

Steelback joined Fnatic in 2015 after leaving SK Prime. In his first split, the team ranked 1st in the round robin stage and eventually won the 2015 Spring, after beating H2k-Gaming (3-2) in the semifinals and Unicorns of Love (3-2) in the finals. The team then competed at the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational where they finished at 3rd-4th place after losing to SK Telecom T1 (2-3).
Prior to the Summer Split, Steelback was released and replaced by Rekkles. He then joined NA Challenger team Imagine (formerly known as Odyssey Gaming) and participated in the Challenger series where they placed 3rd in the playoffs after beating Cloud9 Tempest in the 3rd place match.He then joined Unicorns of Love at IEM X San Jose where they finished at 5th-6th, losing to Counter Logic Gaming in the quarterfinals.
Steelback continued to play for Unicorns of Love as the team's starting AD Carry for the 2016 Spring Split. They finished the round robin stage at 5th place and made it to the playoffs. They, however, lost to Origen (0-3) and ended their run at 5th-6th place.
After one split with UOL, Steelback joined ROCCAT for the Summer Split. However, the team finished at 10th place with a 2W-6T-10L record. They then played in the Promotion Tournament and fortunately won against Schalke 04 (3-1), and were able to secure the team's spot for the 2017 Season.
