Biography[edit]

Dota 2[edit]

Team Shakira and Western Wolves[edit]

7ckngMads professional Dota 2 career started with Team Shakira in 2011. The team first gained notability after placing 4th in Dreamhack Winter 2011 and shortly after 7ckngMad, along with the rest of the team, was picked up by Western Wolves[1]. After only 3 months with Western Wolves, paved with roster issues, 7ckingmad left to organisation, together with Titouan "Sockshka" Merloz and Thibault "Funzii" Calonne[2] , to join a rehash of mTw led by Troels "Synderen" Nielsen.[3]

mTw and The International 2012[edit]

The new mTw, also featuring the German support player Rene "Kebap" Werner, managed to win the organisations first tournament since forming its DotA 2 squad and went on to beat Next.KZ in the West Qualifiers for The International 2012, qualifying for the main event. After these two successes the team continued having success in almost every tournament it took part in winning, amongst others, DreamHack Summer 2012. Going into The International 2012 the team was counted as one of the top contenders for winning the whole tournament.

But after what can only be described as a team-wide collapse during the group stage of the tournament 7ckingMad and the rest of the team ended up last in their group with a score of 3-11, only taking a game off TongFu, Darer and CompLexity Gaming. Shortly thereafter 7ckngMad, once again accompanied by "Sockshka" and "Funzii", left the team citing "interpersonal issues"[4]. The three decided to re-form Team Shakira, but this time with Christopher "Ryze" Winther and Adrian "S0ny" Sebastian joining them.

Team Shakira, Shiba Gaming and DD.Dota[edit]

2 months after re-forming Team Shakira four of the players on the team plays in ESWC 2012 as "Shiba Gaming", with Alexander "CalculuS" Rathcke replacing "S0ny". Due to the success of the union, Shiba Gaming finished 3rd, the players decided to merge with the current MYM squad forming a 6 man squad where 7ckngMad took the role as coach/manager/stand-in.[5] The team decided not to work with MYM and instead formed DD.Dota.

After only a short while the German player Angelo"THEneNo-" Gonzalez decided to leave the team[6] and 7ckngMad was once again back on the roster. After yet another time of roster stability issues, with only the three french players being the constant members of the team, the roster, now featuring Airat "Silent" Gaziev and Artur "Goblak" Kostenko, entered the qualifying tournament for The International 2013. The team nearly won the qualifier, falling 3 - 1 to mousesports in the finals but the chance of qualifying did not end there. Due to placing second in the west qualifiers the team qualified for a wildcard match against the second place finishers in the east qualifiers RattleSnake. Before the wildcard match the team was signed by Quantic Gaming and therefore entered the tournament as Quantic.

The wildcard game ended in a heartbreaking fashion for 7ckinMad and his team. After 2 games the score was tied at 1 - 1 but RattleSnake managed to take the last two games of the series in a dominating fashion. Rattlesnake managed to eliminate Quantic 3-1 both due to good play from their own team but also misplays from Quantic, with the most famous one being Sockshka stunning a Beastmaster Boar[7] due to a misclick that could otherwise have stunned 4 enemy heroes. This ended all hopes for 7ckngMad to qualify for the tournament.

In the months following the loss Quantic slowly lost player after player, starting off with "Silent" leaving for Team Empire[8] and "Goblak" joining Virtus.pro[9]. After "Funzii" decided to retire "7ckngMad" and "Sockshka" reveal that they have already formed a new team outside of the Quantic organisation.[10] This made Quantic decided not to re-sign the players.

Sigma.int[edit]

The new team, featuring "7ckngMad"', "Sockshka", Mikkel "miGGel" Berg, Adrian "FATA-" Trinks and Brian "MaNia" Strandby, first went under the well known name DD.Dota for about a month before a new organisation was willing to step in to sponsor the squad. The organisation that ended up picking up the team was the french Sigma[11]. Before joining Sigma "MaNia"[12] decided to retire and was instead replaced by Pascal "paS" Lohmeier. With the players on his team "7ckngMad" has come to his right as a captain, leading them to success he has not seen before in other teams.
