Biography[edit]

Clem started playing StarCraft II at the age of 10.

He participated in French LANs PxL-Lan #38, PxL-Lan #39 and PxL-Lan #41.

He also tried multiple times to qualify for the online tournament Underdogs. He never managed to win in the qualifiers, but in Season 20, he took a spot available after FireCake's ban by O'Gaming. In the first round, he lost 1-2 to Denver, and was defeated by MiNiMaTh in the consolation match.

Legacy of the Void[edit]

In February 2016, at the age of 13, Clem qualified for Underdogs Season 22, notably defeating MiNiMaTh and ShaDoWn. However, in the main tournament, he was eliminated in the first round, once again after losing 1-2 to Denver.

A few weeks later, he qualified to the following season of Underdogs. There, he defeated FunK 3-1, lost 2-3 to DnS, and finally won 3-1 against Uzikoti to take third place in the tournament. As a result, he qualified to Topdogs Season 2, where he is set to play against Lilbow.

In April 2016, he entered the European qualifiers for DreamHack Open: Tours, which doubled as the 2016 WCS Spring Circuit Championship. He managed to finish in a qualifying spot in the losers bracket, notably defeating former WCS Premier players Tefel, Miniraser and Happy. However, he was only 14, and WCS rules did not allow players under 16 to participate, and as a result, Clem lost his spot.

On June 19th, he left orKs eSports to join Dead Pixels.[1]

2020[edit]

February 21st 2020, he was recruited by Team Liquid.[2] Once he joined Team Liquid, he managed to reach several finals in minor tournaments, defeating the top players and acquiring a strong reputation. His TvZ is considered as one of the best in the world.

In the second edition of the StayAtHomestory Cup, Clem managed to defeat several notable players. He acquired the first place in both group stages, defeating SKillous 2-1, soO 2-1, Cure 3-2 and finally Stats 3-1. In the final bracket, he was able to beat Zest 3-1. He then lost to Solar 1-3 making a rematch against Stats in the loser's bracket. After an exciting match, he managed to beat Stats once again, 3-2 and finally lost against INnoVation 1-3. With this Clem acquired the fourth place in the StayAtHomestory Cup #2.

During summer, Clem confirmed his last performance in the DH SC2 Masters 2020 Summer: Europe, achieving the third place, behind Serral and the champion of the edition, Reynor. He came out of the group stage with a convincing score of 7-0 with only one map lost against ShoWTimE. Clem went to the Winner's Semifinals beating MaNa, uThermal and losing to Serral 2-3. His run ended when he faced Reynor in the Loser's Finals with 1-3. Finishing third, he gained a spot for the Season Finals where he didn't make it out of the group stage.

In the DH SC2 Masters 2020 Fall: Europe, Clem improved his last results achieving this time the second place of the tournament. Finishing first in group stage with a map score of 12-2, only losing against Gerald, he went to the winner's final by defeating ShoWTimE, PtitDrogo and Reynor 3-2. Reynor came back from the lower bracket to defeat Clem in a clutch serie where Clem had two match point 3-4. This was his best result in a Premier tournament since he started to play.

With his top 4 finish in the DH SC2 Masters 2020 Fall: Europe, he went to the DH SC2 Masters 2020 Fall: Season Finals where he ended up at the top 4, dealing with SpeCial and Probe in the group stage, Serral in the Ro8 to lose against the future champion Reynor with 3-1 (Reynor taking the title against Trap with 4-3).

In 2020, Clem managed to climb the podium place by place. He went from the third place, to the second place and finally take the first place of a Premier Tournament. Clem join the list of Premier Tournament champions during the DH SC2 Masters 2020 Winter: Europe. After being first in a slightly more tight group stage, confronting among others ShoWTimE, Elazer and GunGFuBanDa with a final map score of 14-4, Clem went to the winner's bracket in first spot amoung Lambo, Serral and Reynor. His first playoff match was against his friend, Denver. They had a tight series with a final score of 3-2 in favour of Clem. His next opponent was Serral in another close series, which ended with Serral taking the 3-2 victory. With that Clem went to the loser's bracket round 4, and started his rise against ShoWTimE 3-0 and then HeRoMaRinE 3-1 before meeting Serral in a rematch, which this time did go in Clems favor with 3-1. The final was a newly classic in Clem versus Reynor, with Reynor coming from the Winner's bracket, possessing an adventage of 1 map. Reynor took the first map and in response Clem took the four other. With a final result of 4-2 Clem became champion in a Premier tournament for the first time of his career.
