Trivia[edit]

  • TACO's nickname is a play on his first name, and most likely does not in fact refer to the Mexican dish; but rather to a nickname his aunt gave him when he was a child, because she never liked the name his parents gave him, "Epitácio".
  • Named by FalleN as a potential breakout player of 2017. [3]
  • Is a founding board member of the Counter-Strike Professional Players' Association (CSPPA). [4]
