ThijsHS's parents live in Oldenzaal, which is close to where he lives. His brother is Stef150.
Thijs played soccer IRL while he was in elementary school, and also played a lot of Mario Kart and FIFA while he was growing up. He mainly played Command & Conquer: Red Alert while he was in his teens, and then switched to League of Legends in 2012. He mained it until he started playing HeathStone in early 2014 after a friend introduced him to it during its early beta.
He never returned to LoL, because he found the community to be too toxic, especially compared to the much friendlier Hearthstone community.
It was only when he won his first major Title in the DreamHack Masters Bucharest 2014: NESCAFÉ 3in1 Hearthstone Tournament that he realized that he could focus on becoming a professional <em>HearthStone</em> player. This is what inspired him to start streaming his content on Twitch soon afterwards. He was also recruited to join Team Nihilum together with Lifecoach1981, RduLIVE and LotharHS. Their team performed well and was incorporated into G2 Esports a year later.
However, although he had decided to pursue this career path, he still continued with his university studies and completed his degree in Business Economics in 2016, before focusing on streaming fulltime. Although initially uneasy about his choice of career decision, his parents have since become supportive.
Thijs has over 5,400 subscribers and an average viewership of ~28,200. This should earn him at least $1,750 USD per month, excluding additional revenue from sources such as tiered subscriptions, tournament winnings, tips, sponsorships, advertisements and Twitch cheer bit contributions.
He is estimated to have won at least $4228,300 USD from various tournaments, and ~$8,176.50 USD from his top 13 donators alone.

Tilt is a problem everyone faces, also me. What helps me is to think logical and analytical about the situation. To say it easy, you should not tilt when you lose a 25% game, it just happens 25 of the 100 times. Of course you can have a swing against you, if you notice my stream or tournament games I often try to take short breaks, do something else and go again. Get my mind out of the 1-way thinking is important for me.
My way to stay positive is to do things I like and make the things I don't like either a little fun or do them all together so I'm super satisfied when I got it done all.
