TSM_TheOddOne and his brother grew up playing console games, such as Combat on the Atari 2600 and Sonic the Hedgehog on the SEGA Genesis. As a teenager, he was introduced to StarCraft on the PC and has been sticking with PC video games ever since. Other games that he played prior to LoL included Warcraft III, Civilizations, DotA and Road Rash. While he was playing DotA, one of his friends recommended that he try out LoL. As he was losing interest in DotA Allstars anyway, he decided to do so and became addicted to it.
As he reached the higher tiers, he met other skilled players and began playing with them regularly. One of them was TSM_Reginald, who decided to form an official team when the Riot Season 1 Championship was announced for June 2011. He approached TSM_TheOddOne to join him, which he did. Thus, he was part of the original Team SoloMid (TSM) team that formed the foundation for the rest of the organization. They came third in that tournament and continued to participate in tournaments. TSM_TheOddOne retired from LoL in 2014 to become the team’s coach and to focus on his streaming career.
TSM_TheOddOne has ~2,040 subscribers. This should minimally net him $5,100 USD per month, excluding tiered subscriptions, Twitch cheer bit contributions, tips, advertising, TSM salary and sponsorship revenue.
He doesn’t have a set schedule, but he usually streams several times a week for at least 9.5 hours a session.
