According to his Twitter feed, ‘I had a big head when I was younger, and that is where Scoom originated from, it was a made up word that "meant" big head.’
Scoom grew up playing video games on his family’s Sony SEGA against his dad and brother. However, it was only when they got a PC when he was around thirteen years old that he seriously got into gaming, starting with games such as Red Alert. He got his own PC in 2004, a few months after Call of Duty 1 released. He immediately became addicted.
Outside of gaming, he also played varies games such as football and basketball in his spare time. However, that slowed down once he discovered CoD, as from their he moved on to World of Warcraft, League of Legends and similar big games.
He began streaming ARK on Twitch as a hobby in April 2015 after some of his in-game friends told him that they thought that he was funny. He gradually gained viewers and so decided to keep it up. He then received Twitch partnership in July 2015.
He moved on to include other content such as H1Z1 in November 2015 because of how small the ARK community was. He then started uploading H1Z1 content to YouTube as well in March 2017 but moved on to player PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds shortly afterwards. He soon ranked first in the world on the leaderboards. This attracted the attention of Team Liquid, with whom he signed in August 2017 as part of their professional team. He was benched from Team Liquid in July 1018 and officially left the team in October 2018 and joined Team Reciprocity that same month.
In December 2019, Team Reciprocity announced that they would be disbanding their pro-PUBG team and on March 30, 2020 he announced his retirement from PUBG in favor of fulltime streaming.
His language isn’t always clean.
The best way to get better at shooting is just putting in the hours and getting into fights constantly… [with PUBG] I have custom server access, I can make war modes, so I can play Death Match mode, which helps, but not that much. But it really helps to warm up a little bit and get slightly better at aiming… Lower sensitivity helps you to be more precise consistently. It also comes down to reference, some people have it a little bit higher.
