Gaming Origin

Nitr0 started playing Counter-Strike when he was 7 or 8 years old. After his middle school hours, he used to rush home to play online with his friends.

Fascinatingly, Nitr0 could realize how good he was in CS, probably when he was 16. His friends, Trey and Kevin, also had a key role in it, as they used to encourage him, saying he was far better than average players his age.

Nitr0 never considered becoming a professional, as he focused on a degree then. But he had the best stats in one season of ESC in Maine, which made him realize his gaming proficiency.

While he became noticed on ESEA, he eventually started to wait for his next shot, like in Counter-Strike.

One of his standout features was his impact on the game on the server. He later became a part of Valorant Beta in 2020, but after a month, he returned to CS: GO again.

Professional Career

Nitr0’s gaming career in Valve’s shooter is very exemplifying. His increasing online game ranking caught the attention of Team Liquid. In 2015, Nitr0 signed up with them as a member of their introductory CS roster.

He was so dedicated to his game that he dropped out of college for his first match in Sweden. However, after serving Team Liquid consistently for five years, Nitr0 decided to join Valorant. It was surprising for his fanatics to see the popular Team Liquid player shift to Valorant.

This American esports player kicked off as the in-game leader of Team Liquid. Fascinatingly, the squad earned the winner’s title of four CS: GO S-tier tournaments with the in-game leader Nitr0. And they completed the IEM Grand Slam.

Unfortunately, the team replaced Nitr0 as the shot caller in 2020 as they were struggling. Soon he retired from Team Liquid as the North American organization, 100 Thieves, approached Nitr0 to be a part of the Valorant roster.

Some celebrated successes of 100 Thieves include the 2020 First Strike North America and VCT 2021: North America Stage 1 Masters. However, the organization couldn’t attend the Valorant’s introductory Champions tournament.

Realizing the chances of 100 Thieves’ dissolution, Nitr0 returned to Counter-Strike. However, he is celebrated for taking the squad to the finals of ESL One: Cologne. Nitr0 even had a glorious time with Team Liquid, where the team earned many S-tier titles.

This veteran rifleman is happy to reunite with his former squad and endeavor to build a squad that can overturn the world’s potential Counter-Strike teams.

Nitr0’s current rating is 1.05 out of 3392 rounds played. His stats include 131.0 Average Damage Per Round, 202.0 Average Combat Score, and the Kill, Assist, Survival & Trading percentage of 74.2%.
