[edit] Professional Career

Prior to gaming, Merlini was a former child-prodigy with an IQ of 204, and was one of the youngest to graduate with a degree in his country at age 12.

[edit] Early Career

Merlini joined APEX along with p0c and Fang, which was formed by Corea. Team APEX eventually obtained sponsorship from JMC. In CAL, they defeated the more favoured Complexity and got 2nd in the first MYM Prime Defending. However, not long after, problems from their real lives prevented them from further playing. They soon disbanded after.

[edit] MYM

After Loda left MYM, Merlini joined them. In Dreamhack Summer 2007, MYM met T_T in the finals and won gold with great jungling abilities from Merlini. However, due to personal reasons and the fact that Merlini couldn't train routinely with the team, Merlini had to leave the team again.

[edit] EG

May 2009, Merlini and Fear joined Evil Geniuses, but internet problems and conflicts with the organization led to disbandment.

[edit] Blight.int

In a short lived 2 months with Blight.int, Merlini won the F4F.

[edit] Nirvana.int

Due to sponsonship problems, Blight switched to Nirvana. But due to a lot of reasons, Merlini had to retire in 2010.

[edit] SK Gaming

Merlini was slated to make an official comeback during the Dota2 Valentine's Day Celebrity Charity Challenge, partnering with Sayuri. Unfortunately, at the last minute he was unable to play due to personal obligations, and his spot was taken by American player Fear. Merlini made his official comeback during the 4PlayersLiga on April 11th, 2012 as part of SK Gaming's new roster.
