Carlos Taype was born and raised in Columbia, where he still resides. He has been playing video games since he was seven years old and has been playing League of Legends since Season One. He was first exposed to League of Legends through friends at a local PC cafe in Season 1. While not initially impressed with the game, after seeing the Season One Championship, he became interested in competitive play and began to take the game and competitive play seriously.
In Season 2, irvintaype joined a team led by Wikko and Lulos that was actively recruiting other Colombian players. This team would become Dash9 Gaming. After competing with Dash9 for almost two years, irvintaype left to become the midlaner for Tesla Gaming in July 2014.
