2013[edit]

JerAx began his Dota 2 career in the Finnish team Rat in the dark as a support player. After playing with them for a month he was approached by SingSing, and JerAx joined his team, QPAD Red Pandas as a trialist. A while later he was announced as a full member of the team.[1]

2014[edit]

After more than a year of absence from the Dota 2 professional scene, JerAx became a part of the newly-formed Finnish squad 4 Anchors + Sea Captain alongside Trixi, MATUMBAMAN, Vaalix and Buugi. JerAx played the #4 position for the team, in addition to serving as the overall team captain and drafter. He left the team in early January 2015.[2]

2015[edit]

A few days later, JerAx joined the international team Team Tinker. After a couple months of disappointing results, JerAx parted ways with the team on March 6th, and was announced to be joining Korean team MVP HOT6ix. The team quickly became a powerhouse in the South East Asia scene, and after winning MPGL Season 7, the team qualified for The International 2015. Despite their strong play leading up to the tournament, MVP HOT6ix disappointed at the main event. They finished last in their group, and were knocked out in the first round of the playoffs by Invictus Gaming.

In the post TI5 shuffle, JerAx left MVP HOT6ix, and was revealed to have joined 5Jungz after the team was invited to the ESL One New York 2015 European Qualifiers.
