Information[edit]

Professional career[edit]

Xizt was only an eleven year old when he tried out Counter-Strike for the first time. Thanks to his elder brothers' fondness of the game, he stumbled upon the FPS title that was going to become one of the biggest games in esport history. After a couple of years of playing, he made a name for himself within the Swedish online cup scene with the team ChiLi, who later on would get a small sponsorship from the LAN-café spiXel. The time playing in the scene paid off, and eventually he got his first break with the team H2k in 2010.

H2k won the Swedish Championship 2010, which meant a trip to Paris, France where they played the Electronic Sports World Cup 2010 against the top teams in the world. Their performance was decent, and after a while they switched both tactician and organization. They now became Lions, where Xizt would be seen from around the world. Impressive performances against the world elite made people see Lions for more than just another semi elite team, and after only four months in the organization, Xizt was snatched by the world famous organization fnatic.

Once the new teams first LAN event was played, things couldn't have gone better. The team won one of the most anticipated tournaments in history of Counter-Strike, IEM Europe in Kiev, much thanks to the brilliant performance from Xizt throughout the tournament – especially in the grand final. Xizt got the Most Valuable Player award, but after the win, the team had a hard time finding their rhythm. They eventually found it though, by promoting Xizt to in game leader in March of 2012. After this fnatic pretty much dominated Counter-Strike until CS:GO when Landström decided to switch to CS:GO.[1] In august 2012 Xizt together with f0rest, GeT_RiGhT, fifflaren and Friberg joined Ninjas in Pyjamas

Xizt is a truly unique player due to his ability to handle stressful situations while maintaining extreme aim and at the same time lead the rest of his team. Xizt's ability to lead his team, read his opponents' strategies, recognize opponents' fakes and still maintain a extreme high level of play makes him an instrumental part of the NiP team.

Xizt is a support rifler for the team Ninjas in Pyjamas. He created his name in his early teenage years, stealing the alias from one of his brother's friends by appending a 't' to the end. Xizt began his competitive career in 2010 with Fnatic. While he currently serves as the in-game leader in NiP, the team has frequently rotated the role across the players in the squad, most notably in 2014 by Xizt and Fifflaren.
