Zaelia started playing video games when he was around six years old when his parents bought him a Gameboy with Pokémon Yellow and Blue. As he grew up, he realized that he preferred multiplayer games. When he was younger, one of his favorite titles were Warcraft III and StarCraft II before he discovered World of Warcraft (WoW) and became addicted to that in 2007.
In mid-2015, he discovered Heroes of Newerth (HON) and it soon became his backup game when he needed a break from WoW. When he first started, he chose Jaina at his friends’ recommendation and mained her exclusively to grind up the ladder. He still continued to grind hard-core raids in WoW during that time. However, he finally had to put WoW on hold when he went pro with Team Dignitas.
He first started streaming World of Warcraft on Twitch occasionally in February 2013. He joined CrowingCocks’ HON team in mid-2016 and then switched to ExcelenteEleccion a couple of months later. He then signed with Team Dignitas in January 2017 and remained with them until the Team Dignitas HON team was disbanded in December 2018 after it was announced that there would no longer be a HON pro-league.
After that, he returned to his WoW roots and joined Method’s raiding team in January 2019 and was with them until the guild was disbanded in June 2020. A month later, he and his former Method teammates formed his current guild/organization, Echo.
According to TwitchStats, Zaelia has around 700 subscribers. As he generally attracts over 1,500 viewers, this should earn him an income of at least $2,450 USD per month, excluding additional revenue from tiered subscriptions, donations, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements, sponsorships, his team salary and tournament winnings. EsportsEarnings puts his total tournament winnings at over $145,000 USD.
He doesn’t have a set schedule but tends to stream almost daily.
