Biography[edit]

Heroes of Newerth[edit]

MoonMeander is one of the most recognisable players from the Heroes of Newerth scene. MoonMeander's popularity rose because of his consistent streaming and affiliation with the arguably infamous Dotallyrad organization. MoonMeander was picked up by Tralfamadore to standin for team Trademark eSports at the upcoming NASL Season 2. The team ultimately took 3rd place at NASL, beating out Fnatic 2-1. Shortly after his strong debut at NASL, MoonMeander quickly transitioned from a pubstar to a mainstay of the competitive HoN scene. MoonMeander's signature aggression and go big or go home style of play continued to fuel his ever growing fan base. MoonMeander eventually joined compLexity Gaming's HoN squad and continued to perform at a high level in online and offline events. While dedicating the majority of his time to practice and competition, MoonMeander would still constantly stream for his fans. When the HoN competitive scene began to decline, MoonMeander decided to switch to Dota 2.

MoonMeander formed a team with former coL.HoN teammate Bkid and other past Heroes of Newerth players Bloody Nine, Ensoe and WwD. The team first played under the name Black Sheep, however later renamed themselves Dream Destroyers.
