Biography

Born in Geneva, Switzerland to a Portuguese mother and a Tunisian father.

2015 Season

In September 2014, Airwaks joined the ranked 5's ladder team Unlucky Rejects, composed of the former Copenhagen Wolves roster with Freeze in place of Woolite. The team qualified for the Expansion Tournament, but on November 18th, Copenhagen Wolves announced that they were re-signing the Unlucky Rejects roster.[1]

Airwaks participated in the Spring Split with the Copenhagen Wolves, and his impressive individual performances on  Jarvan IV in particular helped the team to a 6th place finish in the regular season, securing them a place in the Spring Playoffs. Airwaks and the team lost to H2k-Gaming in the playoff quarterfinals, meaning they would collect 10 Championship Points for the split.

Airwaks also participated with the Copenhagen Wolves in the Summer Split, but left the team before the start of the fifth week of the split following a leak of internal conversations about the organization.

He then joined Unicorns Of Love as a substitute along with H0R0, both as potential replacements for Gilius who had joined after Kikis' departure. H0R0 ultimately ended up joining the team's starting roster.

Trivia

  • Quit his IT studies to pursue a pro player career.
  • His nickname was originally RwK, but he changed it to match the way his friends pronounced it.
