Matthew "Akaadian" Higginbotham is a jungler for Team SoloMid.

Biography

2015 Season

Akaadian joined Maelstrom in May 2015 and played with them in the NACS Summer Qualifier for the second round, replacing Cat. The team lost to CLG Black and were eliminated from the tournament; soon after, they disbanded. Akaadian returned to play in the summer season with Winterfox, replacing top laner Avalon partway through their season. The team won their first game with Akaadian starting, breaking a 6-game losing streak, but they lost the remainder of their games and finished in last place with a 1-9 record.

2016 Season

Akaadian was brought onto Team Liquid Academy after the second week of the NACS spring season, replacing Zary who had himself replaced IWDominate after his retirement from League and temporary substitution for Liquid Academy when former starting jungler Dardoch was moved to the main Team Liquid team. Liquid Academy finished in fourth place after winning an automatic tiebreaker with Dream Team and moved onto the playoffs, where they were eliminated in the first round by Apex Gaming. After the split ended, Team Liquid Academy rebuilt their roster, and Akaadian left, joining Dream Team. The team however wasn't successful in their attempt to make it into the LCS, after they finished 3rd-4th in the playoffs with an 0-3 loss to Cloud9 Challenger. Akaadian left the team in August and was teamless for the remainder of the season.

2017 Season

In January of 2017, Akaadian joined Echo Fox as their new jungler. Although his rookie split was largely impressive and he was individually one of the strongest jungler, Echo Fox still struggled to perform well as a team. They finished both the Spring Season and Summer Season in 8th place, first with a 6-12 record and then with a 5-13 record. After a lackluster season, Akaadian left the team in December and joined the newly formed OpTic Gaming.

Trivia

  • Played water polo in high school.
  • Name comes from a misspelling of a quote from the movie 300, where a character yells "Arcadians, Now!"
