Since he was 14 he has played MOBAS like DotA1, Heroes of Newerth, DotA 2. He has always been a top ranked individual. Initially aspired to be a semi-professional/professional player of DotA 2 and practiced a lot (about 4000 hours) but his friends played LOL so he decided to come back to the game within the end of Season 2 (He already had played in Season 1 but not seriously). His play improved rapidly due to his experience in other MOBAS, that being a relatively high level in Dota2. Edward then ascended to Challenger tier and teams started asking him to tryout for teams.
