Biography

Heroes of Newerth

Kyle "Swindlemelonzz" Freedman got his start in competitive gaming playing Heroes of Newerth. He primarily played for team stayGreen with his brother, Zfreek. Team stayGreen's roster started with Swindlemelonzz, Zfreek, Skyzoe, and Sender; they added Chessie and SlickZ when Skyzoe and Sender left. stayGreen went on to win a few more tournaments before it disbanded.

Dota 2

Kyle started playing Dota 2 after coming back from his hiatus. He originally put down competitive gaming, but soon grew tired and realized playing Dota 2 was his dream as his former teammate ppd on Evil Geniuses placed third at The International 2014 the year before. He knew he had the skills to be the best so he charged into Dota 2. His brother zfreek put down offers from other teams to join his brother. Together, they went in to the scene and were picked up by Complexity Gaming with the roster of Moonmeander, Riser, Zfreek, Swindlemelonzz, and Limmp. The roster changed with Riser's injury, but the HoN vets proved to everyone that they were a force to be contended with when they 2-0'd the North American Rejects in the TI5 American Qualifiers. At The International 2015, he was featured in a player profile, in tandem with his brother, Zfreek and was placed 9-12th in the tournament. [1]

In 2016, he came fourth place in EPICENTER, beating fellow North American rivals, Evil Geniuses in the lower brackets. At the climax of the match up between the two teams, a camera was focused upon Kyle showing his excitement showing his "beaver" looking facial expression. [2]
