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

After getting tired of WoW his friends decided to explore League of Legends and introduced Deficio to it.

Deficio previously played mid lane for XL, Team FragZone and Team SharkGaming before moving on to form Copenhagen Wolves.
