Nikita "Nicker" Pomadov is a Night Elf player from Russia.


My name is Nikita “nicker” Pomadov, I was born in summer '86 in the city of Perm, Russia. I have been fascinated by foreign languages since my early childhood, thus I took intensive English program at the elementary school. By that time, English was like a secret language for computer games, music and movies, so I had a good grasp of it.

Since 2007 I started my professional gaming career in Warcraft 3 (RTS video game). From 2007 to 2011 I took part in many eSports tournaments around the world. From 2011, most of these competitions were held in China, so I decided to move there.

As soon as I got to China, I realized that it's a new Land of Opportunity, so I started learning Chinese by myself. After winning some money at one of the tournaments, I decided to seize the opportunity and enrolled in a half-year Chinese language courses at Shanghai International Studies University. After completing the semester, I received Shanghai Municipal Government Scholarship for undergraduate students. In 2016, I graduated with honours from SISU, bachelor in Chinese language (Business oriented).

Confucius said, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life". I believe that the only way to do great work is to love what you do. Every time I have to deal with different types of businesses, so my work never becomes routine. (c)
