Zven is an incredibly talented ADC that created waves in the Challenger scene during mid 2014 due to his stellar mechanical play on champions like Jinx & Kalista. Whilst his team, SK Gaming, qualified for the EU LCS for the 2015 Spring split without him, his mechanical skill alone caught the attention of former Fnatic midlaner xPeke, who recruited Zven (at this point playing as Niels) to join his new organisation, Origen, with them going through the Challenger series to qualify for the split. This would also be where he would meet his long teammate/bot lane, Mithy.
In the EU LCS Summer 2015 split, Niels quickly made a name for himself as one of the most gifted ADC's in Europe alongside Rekkles, winning the Rookie of the split award, and overall becoming a key asset for the team due to his solid play. With sOAZ in the top lane, Amazing in the Jungle, xPeke in the mid lane, and Mithy to help Niels in the bottom lane, Origen quickly made a name for themselves as one of the best teams in Europe, finishing 2nd place in their first ever split with a 12-6 record and narrowly losing a five-game set to Fnatic in the finals. However, the team still made it to Worlds 2015 after winning the gauntlet, where they would go on an incredible upset run at the event, taking down teams like LGD Gaming, KT Rolster, and Flash Wolves towards the semi finals. They would lose 3-0 to eventual winners, SK Telecom T1 there, however.
In 2016, Niels and Mithy decided to join another new organisation, G2 Esports, ran by former SK Gaming mid laner ocelote. This would also be where Niels would change his in-game name from Niels to Zven. Whilst on G2, Zven, alongside Mithy continued to be one of the best bot lanes in Europe, thanks to the twos synergy. With their play, and an up-and-coming superstar in Perkz also on the roster, G2 would dominate the 2016 split, winning playoff and therefore qualifying for Worlds 2016, where they would unfortunately & unexpectedly bomb out of the tournament in group stage.
2017 saw Zven and Mithy stay on G2 where they continued to impress with their consistent mechanical play and synergy, where they would finish 1st in the spring split, qualifying G2 Esports for that years MSI. They would finish 2nd place to SK Telecom T1 at the MSI 2017, upsetting a number of notable teams (such as Team WE, Flash Wolves, and even SK Telecom T1 in the group stage). G2 would again win the Summer Split, qualifying them for Worlds 2017, where they would again fail to make it out of groups.
In 2018, Zven and Mithy left G2 Esports to travel to North America, where they would join one of the most dominant teams in the NA LCS, Team SoloMid. The decision did not work out as smoothly as planned, however, with them finishing 5-6 in their first split with the team, and with them failing to qualify for Worlds for the first time in both the player's and organisation's history. This also saw longtime teammate, Mithy, leave Zven to join a revitalised Origen roster during the Spring split's offseason.
2019 also led to further struggles for both Zven and TSM overall, and whilst they made it to finals in Spring finals, a devastating misplay by Zven on Ezreal against Skarner led to them narrowly losing to Team Liquid 3-2. These struggles would continue into the summer split, with TSM falling to Clutch Gaming 3-1 in the quarter finals.
In 2020, Zven was traded to Cloud9. He traveled to Korea for an extended bootcamp with new support Vulcan before joining the rest of the team. He started the 2020 Spring Split very strong, going deathless in the first five games of the season.
