Eventually, he began commentating for Purdue University's Collegiate Starleague Team and began his youtube channel. For a short time he ran an event called Balance Battles on a weekly basis, which involved pitting players of different skill levels against each other and giving the higher league player a handicap.
Eventually, during an internship at Amazon in the summer of 2012, he commentated a few internal events involving Amazon's After Hours Gaming League Team, leading into later official and unofficial AHGL Season 3 commentaries.
During the Fall of 2012, feardragon began commentating for the Under Rated Team League Season 1. He was later asked back on as a caster for Season 2 in Heart of the Swarm.
