MJCheen grew up playing video games. He really got into COD during his Xbox 360 days.
He began competing at LAN events when he was 12 years old. He started making money from them when he was 15 with MW3, so by the time he graduated from high school and wanted to go pro, his parents were accepting of it.
MJCheen was added to the Renegades inaugural COD roster in August 2016 when the organization was purchased by Jonas Jerebko. He later transitioned to Team Kaliber in October 2017 and remained with them until April 2018 when he was acquired by Team Envy. However, in September 2018, Team Envy decided to release the majority of the roster and Chino was allowed the status of a ‘restricted free agent.’ He was able to join G2 Esports as a substitute in December 2018, but the organization decided to dissolve the team in January 2019.
He was signed as a substitute for OpTic Gaming in December 2019. He was added to their main roster in May 2020. But this was also short-lived, as he was released from the roster in September 2020. He joined the LA Guerillas’ inaugural academy team the following month. He was added to their main roster in April 2021. But he was demoted to Academy again in June that year.
According to MJCheeen’s Twitch chat bot, he has around 250 subscribers , which should put his starting monthly income at $625 USD. This would then be boosted by other revenue sources such as his team salary, tournament winnings, donations, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements, tiered subscriptions and sponsorships. His total tournament winnings are estimated to be at over $120,000 USD.
