Brian "MaNia" Strandby was one of the more popular players in European DotA history.
After having played many years for MYM, MaNia- and Maelk founded the casual clan Problem???, which MaNia- left in January 2012 to join SK.   However, SK dropped their Dota2-team in early 2012, so former SK-Team changed their name to dd until Quantic Gaming picked them up in late Febuary.  In a struggle to make a living off playing Dota2 the team changed sponsors several more times, until in June 2012 the team disbanded.
In September 25, 2012, MaNia came back to the scene by joining Absolute Legends.
On October 15th, 2013, MaNia announced his retirement from the Dota scene as a player (leaving open the possibility of a management/casting role).
