Tristan "PowerOfEvil" Schrage is a mid laner for OpTic Gaming.
PowerOfEvil is from Bad Soden, Germany. He started playing videos games as a kid, spending time with titles like Warcraft III and Age of Empires 2. He is currently attending school at Taunus gymnasium. Prior to playing competitively, he had aspirations of becoming a pilot and flying internationally. Outside of LoL, he enjoys playing tennis and soccer with his friends. His in-game name comes from his username in Warcraft III. His older brother showed him League of Legends and he fell in love with it right away.
His competitive career began after he being recognized in solo queue for being a strong midlaner. His first team was a German team called, EYES ON U. He was added as part of a new roster to compete in the EPS Winter Season.
Soon after, the PowerOfEvil was part of the European LoL division formed by the organization, EYES ON U Europe. The team participated in Challenger Spring Series #1 after defeating Unicorns of Love in the final of their play-in bracket, but were beaten by MeetYourMakers in the quarterfinals of the competition.
He then joined Planetkey Dynamics to play in the ESL Pro Series. In addition to playing EPS with PkD, he joined Unicorns of Love to play in the Challenger Series.
Soon after this, the team qualified for the Summer Series #1 of the EUCS, but lost to Ninjas in Pyjamas 2-0 in the quarterfinals.
PowerOfEvil then decided to leave UoL, but rejoined just a month later. While away from the team, they managed to qualify for the Summer Playoffs.
The playoffs went particularly well for the team, despite the Unicorns of Love losing to H2k-Gaming in the semifinal. The team went on to beat Ninjas in Pyjamas in the 3rd place match, securing themselves a spot at the Spring Promotion Tournament. After that, PowerOfEvil left Planetkey Dynamics to focus on playing with UoL.
With the Promotion Tournament came a chance for PowerOfEvil and the Unicorns of Love to qualify for the 2015 LCS Spring Split. The Promotion Tournament was a huge success, with the team beating Millenium 3-2 in their promotion match-up. This meant that PowerOfEvil would be playing in the LCS the following season.
Unicorns of Love were the European team fan-voted to IEM San Jose. With a roster of Vizicsacsi, Kikis, PowerOfEvil, Vardags, and Hylissang at the tournament, they surprised audiences by making it to the semifinals after defeating Lyon Gaming 2-0 and then Team SoloMid 2-0. They placed second at the tournament, losing to Cloud9 in the finals. PowerOfEvil was nominated for the MVP award along with Rekkles, Vizicsacsi, Kikis, and Sneaky but lost the vote to Sneaky.
The EU LCS Spring Season was a huge success for PowerOfEvil and Unicorns Of Love, finishing the regular season in 5th place, partly thanks to PowerOfEvil's impressive performances on Cassiopeia and Syndra, which also saw him take the Weekly MVP award twice during the split. This meant that team would participate in the Spring Playoffs, where they would face and beat Gambit Gaming in the quarterfinals. PowerOfEvil and the team managed to make LCS history when they became the first team to knock out a 1st place regular season finisher in the playoff semifinals, taking down SK Gaming convincingly. They went on to lose the playoff final to Fnatic in a close-fought series, finishing 2nd in their first LCS split, and picking up 70 Championship Points in the process.
The Summer Season was equally as successful for Unicorns Of Love, finishing the regular season in 4th place, this time partly thanks to PowerOfEvil's Kog'Maw and Orianna performances. This ensured the team's participation in the Summer Playoffs, where they overcame Team ROCCAT in the quarterfinals but were taken out themselves in the semifinals by a dominant Fnatic. 40 Championship Points gained here secured Unicorns Of Love a spot in the 2015 Season Europe Regional Finals. Despite their high seeding, they were beaten by Origen in the final of the gauntlet.
PowerOfEvil went on to join Origen as part of a six-man roster, which still included xPeke, albeit as the team's second mid laner.
Origen competed at IEM San Jose, and were given a bye to the semifinals due to Fnatic's withdrawal from the tournament. The team fielded their roster from the previous season, but with PowerOfEvil in the mid lane and xPeke taking a coaching role. They took down Team SoloMid in the semifinals, and went on to beat Counter Logic Gaming in the final - winning the tournament without losing a single game.
Origen's performance at IEM San Jose resulted in their qualification to the IEM World Championship. At the tournament, they first lost to Royal Never Give Up in the upper bracket of their group before then losing to Team SoloMid in the lower bracket, resulting in the team's elimination from the tournament.
