Heart of the Swarm[edit]

In May 2013, FireCake qualified for the WCS 2013 Challenger League Europe Season 1 overcoming players such as Snuffe, MarineLorD, Tarrantius, ShoWTimE and LiveZerg. There, he managed to maintain his Challenger League status for Season 2, losing to Bly then placing 3rd in his group, with losses to ThorZaIN and MaNa and a victory over Bischu.

In Season 3 he lost against MC and StarDust but managed to keep his Challenger League status by beating BlinG and MaNa. His last match against MaNa lasted nearly three hours making it the longest pro StarCraft II match in history at the time.[1]

In January 2014 he qualified for the WCS 2014 Premier League Europe Season 1 by defeating Strelok 3-1.

On March 23, 2014, FireCake joined Punchline ESC.[2]

On April 30, 2014, he qualified for the WCS 2014 Premier League Europe Season 2 by defeating Verdi 3-1.

On May 19, 2014, FireCake won the European qualifier of HSC IX.

In WCS 2014 Europe Season 3 Challenger League, he lost 2-3 against Serral, and did not qualify for Premier league for the first time in a year.

In 2015, FireCake succeeded to qualify for Challenger League, and then beat Starbuck to reach for the fourth time the WCS Premier League, being the last remaining French player in this edition. He managed to reach the Round of 16, taking a map from ForGG and winning against puCK twice. In the Round of 16, FireCake defeated MaNa but lost twice against Polt, the future winner of WCS Premier League 2015 Season 1.

On April 6, 2015, FireCake won his first major tournament after beating PiG, MarineLorD, MacSed, PsiOniC, Lilbow and TRUE.

Legacy of the Void[edit]

A few days before the release of Legacy of the Void, on November 2, 2015, FireCake joined Madkraken Gaming.[3] One month later, on December 4, 2015, FireCake announced that he had left the team, declaring that Madkraken Gaming had failed to honor their part of the contract.[4]

On June 29, 2016, FireCake announced that he was switching races from Zerg to Protoss.[5] He played his next series as Protoss, losing 3-0 to Uzikoti in Topdogs Season 4. However, he played his next series as Zerg, losing to MarineLorD in the SC2Improve Team League Season 6 Semifinals. Therefore, it is unknown how permanent this race switch is.
