When he was growing up, he really enjoyed playing video games, with his first PC game being Age of Mythology. In his teens, he mainly played the various Assasin’s Creed titles and Call of Duty 4 before getting into League of Legends (LoL). His love of LoL stemmed mainly from the competitive aspect of solo queue. However, he had never really thought that it would be possible for him to enter the eSport scene due to its being so small there.
But this changed in the spring of 2014, when g2perkz heard a rumor that Origin was interested in adding him to their lineup as he was consistently ranking within the top ten players in the EU during season 5. Therefore, he decided to compete in the Challenger Series during that summer and won ~€40, which was a lot of money to him as a high schooler. He also managed to qualify for the 2014 LCS largely due to his skipping school to play LoL. Unfortunately, there were complications and he wasn’t able to join the team. But he got an offer from G2 Esports soon afterwards.
He joined G2 in mid-2014 and has been with them ever since. He became a fulltime member of their team as soon as he graduated from high school in 2016.
According to his chat bot, he has ~275 subscribers. As he regularly attracts over 10,000 viewers per stream, this should generate him at least $960 USD per month. This excludes additional income from his team salary, tournament winnings (which EsportsEarnings puts at ~$454,500 USD), sponsorships, tips, and Twitch cheer bit donations.
g2perkz doesn’t have a set schedule due to his professional obligations, but he tends to stream daily for between 3 – 7 hours per session.
[What motivates me is that] I enjoy being elite at what I do, so being good at league of legends gives me joy, pushing myself to becoming the best is what truly motivates me to do better.
