Biography[edit]

Tefel has been a relatively active player since the early Beta. While placing well in a number of online cups he has still gone largely unnoticed, possibly because of his lack of LAN achievements. He can be characterized by strong timing strategies and a more aggressive mid-game style.

On September 9, 2010, Tefel joined Satiini in ieS Virtual Gaming's newly created StarCraft II division.[1][2] Tefel went on to place well in a number of different cups, amongst others winning Close Combat Cup #27. He also demonstrated adept 2v2 play, winning Competo 2v2 Cup #12 together with fellow Pole DieStar.

Tefel joined BLAST on July 27, 2011 after the dissolution of ieS.[3]

Tefel qualified for the 2012 MLG Pro Circuit Spring Arena 2 through beating players like merz, Ret and Bly. At the tournament he made an upsetting run in the lower bracket with victories over SeleCT and, yet again, Ret. After getting knocked out by Alicia he ended up on 13-16th place of 32 participants.

On November 19, 2012, Tefel joined Team Dignitas's StarCraft II division.[4]

In December 2012 Tefel attended the ESET UK Masters 2012 in the United Kingdom at the Insomnia47 Gaming Festival. Placed in a group with 3 other Zerg players, TLO, Ziktomini and JonnyREcco he managed to take first place after two straight wins against TLO and Ziktomini. In the playoffs he met German Terran KrasS and fell 2-0, finishing 5-8th and taking £150 prize money.
