After a few seasons, Civi realized he was stronger with Zerg than Protoss and Terran. Civi focused much on long macro games and winning the late games. After practicing hard and implementing cheeses, timing attacks and improving micro, together with his macro play, Civi was able to qualify to The Gathering 2012 group stages.
This was a great achievement for Civi since he had never played on the main stage in a live event. Even though Civi lost in the group stages, this helped him to practice harder and improve more. After this, Civi won against some Grandmaster players and improved heavily. He changed his playstyle and varies buildorders and tactics to become an even better SC2 player.

Civi reached stage 2 of the European qualifier for 2015 MSI Masters Gaming Arena.
- He used to play a lot of RTS games like AoE 2, Red Alert, WC3 and chess before he started playing StarCraft II.
- When Civi has nothing better to do he speedruns games, mostly Shantae: Risky's Revenge.
