Where it all began:
Yazied began playing Defense of the Ancients at a local Internet café in Amman, where he made friends with two other famous players, Miracle and Hook. He really liked the competition of video games and soon realized that he could make a living out of professional gaming, so he practised even more and never stopped playing since then.
Jaradat began his pro gaming career back in 2011 with his first team, WhyAre competing in DotA. Eventually like other gamers, he made the smooth transition into Dota 2 playing for the Gaming Republic. He moved on to play for other squads like Think Smart, Balkan Bears, Monkey Freedom Fighters, Escape Gaming and B)ears, before joining Team Secret.
