TurtleBlue² started playing a lot as a kid on consoles. After he moved to the PC, his first game was Counter-Strike 1.6. Heading into SMITE, he liked to play the hunter role due to the Gods played in the role. He had followed the eSports scene in League of Legends and CS:GO and dreamed of playing a game that he liked and winning something with it. He improved mechanically by playing a lot of league matches, which is also how he found his team.
In May 2015, he joined Keyd Stars when the MiniTaGe Team roster was acquired.
