Yellowpete is a player hailing from Hanover, Germany. At the age of ten, yellowpete started playing real-time strategy game "Age of Empires". Eventually yellowpete grew into games like Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike Source, Warcraft, and Defense of the Ancients. One of yellowpete's friends who he played DotA with soon showed him League of Legends.
As LoL grew, so did yellowpete’s skill and reputation as a top-tier player. Strong mechanical skill is something yellowpete says all of the top professional players have mastered and that what sets him apart is his continually positive attitude toward the game. He communicates well in game and continually strives to create new strategies to improve his team.
In February 2015, Yellowpete officially announced his retirement from competitive League of Legends, after a two-month-long break from playing. He expressed intentions of becoming a casual Hearthstone streamer.
