In 2011, Salem entered his first offline tournament, placing 5th at Concentrate II.[1] At Apex 2013, Salem made one of the biggest wins of his career when he unexpectedly took the tournament. He defeated top players such as MikeHaze, Mr.R, Otori, Dojo, Mikeneko, and Mew2King in both winners and grand finals. His grand finals set versus Mew2King is known as the best Brawl set of all time.[citation needed] He had never won a tournament prior to Apex 2013.

On May 16, 2013, Salem was sponsored by CLASH Tournaments.[2]

At EVO 2017 Salem won his first ever major tournament in Smash 4. After being sent to the losers bracket by Larry Lurr in winners semi-finals he went on to beat KEN, Tweek, Larry Lurr and then had a 10 game set versus ZeRo to take the tournament, crowning himself as the EVO 2017 champion.

Salem was signed by Most Valuable Gaming on October 8th, 2016.[3]. On February 9th, 2018, it was announced that he joined Team Liquid.[4] Team Liquid parted ways with Salem on February 27th, 2019.[5]
