His competitive career started in 2008, competing for Playzone and eventually for other teams such as Ravens, TCM-Gaming, Anexis Esports and many more.
Having a strong background in Counter-Strike 1.6 has given Pfeiffer a smooth transition into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in 2012, the same year that the esports game was released. In 2012, Marco started competing professionally with gaming squads like Copenhagen Wolves, unu.AiN and Team X.
