What to Know About Zachmazer’s Personal Life

It is normal for pro gamers to keep most of their private lives away from the media but notwithstanding, we have some personal stories about Zachmazer. He’s an ardent ice hockey supporter as he mentioned in a Q&A session that he would be playing ice hockey if he wasn’t a gamer. The Detroit-based Red Wings ice hockey team is his favorite team.

He is currently dating the 25-year-old Clara Gomez, who is also a professional Apex Legends player – talk about a power couple pairing. Zachmazer does a lot of gaming even in his spare time and has stated he does not get game fatigue or a need to reset. Taking breaks is alien to him as he feels like a failure so he spends most of his free time practicing.

However, he does insist players looking to go pro should not neglect school. This is what he had to say about the topic:

“Stay in school and focus on school until you’re literally offered a contract by a tier 1 org.”

How did Zachmazer Become a Professional Esports Player?

Majority of Esports players attribute their success to lots of practice and gaming while growing up and Zachmazer is no different as he spent a huge amount of time playing video games. However, unlike most pro players, he only started playing these games in high school.

Zachmazer moved on from League of Legends to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, among other first person shooter games like The Finals. Even though he discovered the streaming platform Twitch in 2012, it wasn’t until 2018 before he tried streaming. Zach tested the waters streaming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4; his streaking gained steam in 2019.

Zach spent his early gaming years as a college student, which was also around the time he discovered Apex Legends. The game launched in 2019 and with the buzz around it, it was understandable that an already established gamer at that time would be interested in it. Even more so as it is an FPS game like the others he plays.

The journey to Elev8 Gaming (his current team) included stints at Solafide (his most successful period in terms of winnings), TSM, and Cloud9. He has remained in Elev8 Gaming since joining on the 3rd of April, 2023.
