Michael "Imaqtpie" hails from Margate, Florida in the USA. He was initially a midlane player and played for a minor team called Oh God Bears in 2011.
League of Legends Career
Though he did not want to play competitively at first, when he was asked by Scarra to join his team, Imaqtpie joined Rock Solid as their starting AD carry, replacing OXICLEAN. The team went on to win the National ESL Premier League and were subsequently picked up by Team Dignitas. Imaqtpie played with Dignitas as their starting AD carry until October 2014, when he stepped down, presumably to pursue streaming full-time.
Throughout his career on Dignitas, Imaqtpie was known as a competitively strong AD carry, but he was even better known for his streaming personality, from which several community memes originated. On December 15th 2013, he appeared in an episode of Reflections.
Imaqtpie's stream chat has been the origination point for several community memes, including:
- "ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ﾉ Raise Your Dongers ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ﾉ"
- Dongsquad and Dongsquad 420
- Book of Dong, a fictional "bible" including teammates and many the phrases he created
- Spamming "BrainSlug," "FrankerZ," and "Kappa" in Twitch.tv channels
