Other Achievements[edit]

Soulkey's first rival is the hite Entus player Snow. Both emerged at about the same time during Dreamleague, went on to take major roles in their respective teams, and faced off several times against each other. The latest showdown will be at the qualifier for the 2010 Bacchus OSL where they are facing off in the Ro36. The head to head record is 5-1 in favor of Snow though.
