EmilZy's competitive SMITE Career started as PrincessTomato of Worth Gaming was going on vacation and the team needed a substitute for the SPL Season 1 EU Qualifiers. EmilZy took the offer, ended up winning the weekly tournament and the team decided to make EmilZy a permanent part of the team by putting him in as coach/sub. In June 2014 Worth Gaming was acquired by Team Coast where EmilZy stayed as Coach until the team disbanded in December 2014.
