Biography[edit]

HoN[edit]

S4 played Heroes of Newerth in team ADON that was later picked up by Lions eSport Klubb together with, among others, previous Fnatic carry Era.

Dota 2[edit]

s4 started his Dota 2 career in early 2012 joining Team Empire who at the time were experimenting with lineups. However, after only 2 months Empire switched players again and s4 created The Tough Bananas together with Balsam who he knew from playing WC3 back in 2003. Despite a disappointing DreamHack Summer 2012 for the team, they were picked up by Copenhagen Wolves in July, but after placing second in the Samsung European Encounter he left the team in September to join the new team No Tidehunter together with AdmiralBulldog, EternaLEnVy and Black^. After winning their first tournament, The Revenge #1, they also qualified for ESWC 2012 and Thor Open.

Black^ left the team in October 2012 to join Team Zero and Swedish veterans Loda and Akke joined No Tidehunter, Subsequent statements were made by from Loda saying that he wanted to play with s4, who he considered to be the best mid player in Sweden. One month later, they won DreamHack Winter 2012. The team followed up their success at at DreamHack with strong showings in online events as well as a second place finish at Thor Open. In February 2013 they announced that EternaLEnVy, one of the founding members, would leave the team and that they were looking for a Swedish replacement.

S4 took over the captain role for the team and with the new addition of Swedish support player EGM, No Tidehunter continued to improve through early 2013. With some incredible plays of s4's Magnus they went on a winning spree in the weeks following the roster change. By this time s4 was considered by many one of the best mid players in the West and perhaps even the world. Winning Star Ladder Season 5 cemented No Tidehunter's position as one of the best teams in the West.

The team announced their secret sponsor in April 2013, and they proceeded to sweep both the DreamHack Dota2 Invitational, the The Premier League Season 4, as well as the prestigious G-1 Champions League Western Qualifiers.

The International 2013[edit]

The International 2014[edit]
