Biography

Season 1

Svenskeren started his competitive League of Legends career with LoLLeague, before joining 3DMAX towards the end of the season, where he played with puszu. Svenskeren then left to join Leethuanyan's roster, which was picked up by Team Mistral soon after. During his time with the team, Mistral played at Kings of Europe, and managed a 3rd place finish, behind the powerhouses of Moscow Five and CLG Europe. Before the 3rd place match, where Mistral went up against Team Sypher, Svenskeren was replaced by Kottenx, leaving him team-less.

Season 2

After a long break from the competitive scene, Svenskeren joined the Copenhagen Wolves towards the end of the season. His first appearance with his new team was at DreamHack Winter 2012, where he and the Wolves performed well, only losing to CLG Europe in the semifinals. He and the team also competed at the THOR Open 2012, coming in 2nd behind Fnatic. Svenskeren and the team followed up these tournaments with more success, placing 1st at NorthCon eSport Arena 2012 and in the Eclypsia Christmas Cup.

Season 3

Svenskeren stayed with the team into the next season, as the Copenhagen Wolves looked to qualify for the LCS. At the LCS Spring Qualifiers, the team finished in 2nd in their group, behind against All authority, but went on to beat Millenium in their qualification match, sealing CW a place in the Spring Split.

The Copenhagen Wolves performed relatively well in the Spring Split, finishing 5th overall. Svenskeren himself impressed on  Jarvan IV in particular. The team's performance in the split was enough to secure them a spot in the Spring Playoffs. The playoffs however, did not go well for Svenskeren and the team, who lost to Evil Geniuses in the quarterfinals. This meant that the Copenhagen Wolves would have to fight for their LCS status in the Summer Promotion. Svenskeren and CW managed to win their promotion match-up against Samurai in Jeans, securing the organization a place in the next split.

Just a few days later, the entire roster left the team, and Svenskeren went on to join Ninjas in Pyjamas. With the team, he played in the first 2 weeks of the Summer Split before being replaced by Malunoo. NiP finished 5th, but Svenskeren did not feature again for the team.

Towards the end of the season, Svenskeren left Ninjas in Pyjamas, forming SUPA HOT CREW with fredy122 with one goal in mind - to reach the LCS. The team lived up to it's expectations, though the founding members left before this happened. Both fredy122 and Svenskeren went on to join SK Gaming only a month after the formation of SHC.

Svenskeren's first tournament with SK was the amateur tournament at IEM Cologne. Unfortunately, the team lost to Copenhagen Wolves in the first round of the tournament. Next up for Svenskeren and SK Gaming was DreamHack Winter 2013. Unbeaten in the group stage, SK went on to win the tournament, beating Intellectual Playground in the semifinals and Kiedys Mialem Team in the final.

It was then time for the Spring Promotion; Svenskeren and SK Gaming would both have the chance to return to the LCS. The team faced Svenskeren's former team, SUPA HOT CREW, in their promotion match-up. A tight-fought series saw SK Gaming come out winners, meaning that they would be playing in the upcoming Spring Split.

2014 Season

Svenskeren competed with a fresh SK Gaming roster in the Spring Split. After a few shaky weeks, it was clear that the changes to the team's roster had served the team well. Svenskeren's  Evelynn,  Pantheon and  Elise helped fuel SK's improvement in results, and their ascent on the rankings table began. By the penultimate week, SK had made it to 3rd place behind Alliance and Fnatic, but a perfect superweek saw SK claim 1st place. SK's performance in the spring split secured them a place in the Spring Playoffs. The playoffs saw Svenskeren and SK Gaming beat Team ROCCAT in the semifinal, but lose to Fnatic in the final, resulting in a 2nd place finish for the team.

SK started the Summer Split strong, and Svenskeren's  Lee Sin and  Elise helped the team stay within the top 3 teams until the 9th week. Poor results toward the end of the split saw SK in 5th place after the penultimate week, but a late surge resulted in the team finishing in 4th place overall. Following this was the Summer Playoffs, a chance for Svenskeren and the team to qualify for the World Championship. SK finished 3rd in the playoffs, losing to Alliance in the semifinal, but beating Team ROCCAT in the 3rd place match, securing themselves a place in the World Championship.

On September 17th, 2014, it was announced that Svenskeren violated the World Championship Event rules by using racially insensitive language while interacting with players on the Taiwan server. He was fined $ 2,500 USD and suspended from SK Gaming's first three 2014 Season World Championship matches.[1]

The World Championship saw SK placed in Group B along with Star Horn Royal Club, Team SoloMid and Taipei Assassins. SK only managed 2 wins in the group, but notably beat TSM in their last match of the group stage. SK finished in 3rd place in their group, meaning that they would not go any further in the tournament.

2015 Season

The Spring Split was a huge success for Svenskeren and SK Gaming, finishing 1st in the regular season and losing only 3 games in the process, partly thanks to Svenskeren's impressive performances on a range of champions including  Jarvan IV and  Rengar. Svenskeren also picked up the Weekly MVP award for Week 3 of the split.

Due to SK being in 1st place in the Spring Split at the specified cutoff date, the team were invited to compete at the IEM Season IX - World Championship. After a Round 1 win against the yoe Flash Wolves, SK Gaming lost to GE Tigers in Round 2 of the winners bracket, putting them into Round 2 of the losers bracket. Svenskeren and SK Gaming were then knocked out by yoe Flash Wolves after losing to the Taiwanese team in their 2nd meeting at the tournament.

The team's regular season performance meant that SK Gaming would have a bye to the semifinals of the Spring Playoffs, where they would fall to Unicorns Of Love in a tight series, and become the first regular season 1st place finishers to fall in the semifinals of playoffs in LCS history. They went on to lose the 3rd place match to H2k-Gaming, securing themselves 30 Championship Points for the split.

The Summer Season was far less successful for Svenskeren and the team, ultimately finishing the regular season in 9th place. This meant that they would have to fight for their LCS status in the 2016 Spring Promotion, where they faced Gamers2. A well-fought series eventually saw SK Gaming, who had been a part of the European LCS since it's conception, lose their place in the LCS.

2016 Preseason

Svenskeren entered talks to join both Team SoloMid and H2k. After initially turning down TSM's offer of a tryout, Svenskeren was set to join H2k; however, TSM offered him a starting spot on their roster, and he accepted. However, H2k claimed that the transfer was illegal due to his having agreed in writing to join H2k.[2] Regardless, Reginald claimed that this move abided by Riot's rules, and thus had signed Svenskeren to TSM on November 8th.[3] TSM's full roster for IEM San Jose included Hauntzer, Svenskeren, Bjergsen, Doublelift, and kaSing.[4] TSM defeated LGD Gaming but then lost to Origen in the semifinals. After IEM, kaSing departed the team and was replaced by former star Fnatic support YellOwStaR.

2016 Season

TSM's NA LCS season started out rocky, with a 50% winrate for the first three weeks. Regardless, they were invited to IEM Katowice in March. There, they dropped their first game to the Korean Challenger team Ever but recovered in the loser's bracket before losing in the semifinals to eventual tournament winners SK Telecom T1 and finishing tied for third place with Royal Never Give Up. After returning to North America, their rocky season continued, and they finished in sixth place, the lowest they'd ever finished in the history of the LCS, with a huge comeback loss to Echo Fox in the last game. Guaranteed to face first-seed Immortals if they were even able to beat Cloud9 in the quarterfinals, TSM seemed poised to have their lowest playoff result in the history of the LCS as well.

However, after signing the well-known sports psychologist Weldon in the break before playoffs, TSM showed significant improvement as a team. They easily defeated Cloud9 3-1 in the quarterfinals and went on to crush Immortals 3-0 in the semifinals, although a lot of their win over Immortals was blamed on surprising draft picks by their opponents, including a top-lane Lucian in Game 1 and no sign of the heavily-in-meta Ekko from either team. In the finals, TSM faced CLG, a matchup with an even more heated rivalry than normal due to Doublelift's team switch prior to the season's start. Ultimately CLG won 3-2, and TSM finished the split in second place, out of reach of the Mid-Season Invitational.

Support YellOwStaR departed TSM during the mid-season break to return to Fnatic, and after a Korean bootcamp during the mid-season break to try out new support players, TSM signed Dream Team's Biofrost as his replacement. Despite being a LCS rookie, Biofrost proved himself almost immediately at the start of the Summer Season. TSM didn't lose a single series until week 8, where they fell 0-2 to then ninth-place Phoenix1. That series was their only loss of the regular season, and they also nearly swept the Playoffs, defeating CLG 3-0 and then Cloud9 3-1 in the finals, qualifying them for the World Championship with North America's first seed.

2017 Season

TSM's 2017 was domestically very successful. In the spring split despite looking shaky at different stages of the regular split, TSM finished 1st with a 15-3 record. In the playoffs TSM defeated Cloud9 3-2 in the finals in a very close series to capture yet another LCS title. This also qualified them for the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational. Despite fan expectations being decent, TSM failed to live up to expectations and finished in 5th place with a 4-6 record. In the tiebreaker game against Flash Wolves the team lost and were knocked out of MSI. In summer after Doublelift's return and WildTurtle's departure to FlyQuest, TSM was expected to dominate the split. They would finish 1st in the regular season with 14 wins and 4 losses but were not back to their dominant selves. In the playoffs they defeated Team Dignitas 3-1 in the semifinals and then took down Immortals 3-1 in the finals to capture their third title in a row which was a first in NA LCS history. The win also qualified TSM for the 2017 Season World Championship.

They were seeded in a group that looked weak on paper and consisted of a shaky Flash Wolves, and untested Misfits and a questionable Team WE. TSM started off well with a 2 wins and 1 loss in Week 1 but then in Week 2 they performed worse and went 1-2. Having to play a tiebreaker against Misfits, TSM lost and were eliminated from Worlds in the group stage yet again in a fashion similar to last years'. Svenskeren left TSM in November and joined Cloud9 in the same month.
