kwezz burst onto the competitive scene in 2017, when he played several King of Nordic tournaments and attended his first big LAN, Cross Border Esport, alongside current Tricked member Fredrik "roeJ" Jørgensen. This year, he has played for teams like Ambush, ImmuNe and maquinas, averaging a 0.91 rating across all competitions.
