Shadowq is from Finksburg, Maryland but lives in Westminster, Maryland with his brother, Macetodaface.
Shadowq started playing games when he was extremely young, starting with games like Putt Putt Goes to the Zoo, and Freddi Fish. He has played SMITE since early closed beta, and began climbing the ladder. His play was notably good for the time and got him invited to Zapman's team.
He later became renowned as one of the best support players in the world. He is often commended for his remarkable Aphrodite play, especially at the SMITE Launch Tournament.
On October 28th, XGN announced a new roster containing members from Denial eSports, including Shadowq, who would play in the MLG Pro League. This led to a mutual fuss between the players and the organization. Eventually the new roster wouldn't play due to the MLG Pro League rules not allowing full roster swaps without consent of all the current players. However, after the old roster's first match in the league, and the lack of victory, led to the old team deciding to disband and hand the spot in the MLG Pro League back to XGN, which went on to fill the now open roster with the roster of members from Denial.
