Biography[edit]

Licorice spent some time on a few different teams in the Challenger Series of North America. He was a substitute on Cloud9 Challenger for a while. He wouldn't find major success until he joined eUnited in December of 2016. The team dominated the NA Challenger Series in 2016. In both the Spring Season and Summer Season the team would finish in 1st place, barely dropping any matches. However in each of their playoffs runs, they would finish second place after 1-3 losses to Gold Coin United. Although they had a chance to qualify for the LCS in the 2017 Summer Promotion, they would lose 1-3 to Team EnVyUs and failed to do so. Their second chance came in the 2018 Spring Promotion but they were again unable to do so after an 0-3 loss to Phoenix1. In November of 2017 Licorice left eUnited and joined Cloud9 as their new Top Laner.

2018 Season[edit]

For the 2018 Season, Cloud9 added Licorice and Svenskeren to their LCS Roster. Things went well in the beginning of 2018 Spring Season for C9. They were in second place for most of the season, however, on the final day of LCS, C9 fell to fifth place. They played Team Liquid in the Spring Quarterfinals and lost 0-3.

C9 started 2018 Summer Season by promoting Goldenglue, Keith, and Zeyzal to the LCS roster. By Week 5 C9 were in tenth place. After bringing back Jensen and Sneaky to the main roster as well as subbing in Blaber for the rest of the summer season, Cloud9 surged and made it to second place and secured a playoff bye by the end of the regular season. In the playoffs, Cloud9 defeated Team SoloMid 3-2 in the Semifinals and lost 0-3 to Team Liquid in the Finals. They moved onto the Regional Qualifier and won 3-0 over TSM to make worlds.

At the 2018 World Championship, Cloud9 once again had to make it through the Play-In stage. They went 4-0 in the Play-In group stage, and beat Gambit Esports 3-2 to advance to the Main Event. Cloud 9 were seeded into Group B, dubbed the "Group of Death", with Team Vitality, Royal Never Give Up, and Gen.G. Cloud9 defied expectations and made it out of the group in second place with a 4-3 record after losing the first place tiebreaker to RNG.

In the Quarterfinals, C9 made history and defeated Afreeca Freecs 3-0, making it the first time since the Season One World Championship that a North American team had made semifinals. In the Semifinals, C9 lost 0-3 to Fnatic.

Trivia[edit]

  • Licorice was the runner up to the prize of "Esports PC Rookie of the Year" at the Esports Awards in 2018, losing to Bwipo.[11]
  • Missed weeks 5 and 6 of the LCS 2019 Summer after injuring his wrist while rock climbing.
