Beginnings[edit]

Zoob first entered competitive TF2 by playing with Highlander team Colony in the ETF2L Highlander Community Challenge with his team eventually came runners-up to SNSD. After the tournament, Zoob was part of Team Yoyotech who were originally known as Spam Effect and helped the team climb all the way up to the ETF2L Premiership before being cut from the roster. In the meantime Zoob continued to play Highlander and helped Colony avoid relegation on multiple occasions.

Resurgence[edit]

Zoob was quiet in the scene for about a year before joining Division 2 roster Lowpander known back then as Furbo Pandas, together with his Colony teammate Furbo. After 4 seasons Zoob helped Lowpander get promoted to the ETF2L Premiership before securing their Premiership status again with 2 consecutive 7th placed finishes in Season 16 and Season 18. In this time Zoob was constantly praised as one of the stronger players in the team, gaining a reputation for himself as a worthy Premiership level soldier. The next season, Lowpander folded and Zoob started backing up for a few teams before gaining a spot on the newly former Reason Gaming, led by legendary Demoman, Kaidus. With Reason, Zoob managed to finish in the top 3 for the first time during Season 20, though his team were disappointed not to have won the title. During Season 21, ahead of knowledge that Zoob could not attend the upcoming Insomnia55 event, Zoob left the team and started backing up for Danger Dogs.

Highlander success[edit]

After Colony died at the end of Season 4, Zoob joined the new European team Highpander, led by 6v6 teammate Hildreth. Together with Highpander, Zoob managed to come in the top 3 every season from Season 5 to Season 8, including a Gold medal finish during Season 6. Zoob was also voted soldier of the season during that season, topping off a successful season. With Highpander he has also won other competitions including one night cups and Wireplay. His last season for Highpander was in Season 9 when he came back for the playoffs, however he could not help his side avoid a 2-0 loss to Strong Opinions, he left the roster soon after but had achieved five successive top 3 finishes in ETF2L Premiership alongside teammate Hildreth.

Season 22 onwards[edit]

Zoob played season 22 for Danger Dogs, winning the Pre-season Premiership playoffs and earning a spot in Prem once again. However the season was a poor one for Danger Dogs, they only won 1 game out of 7 and came in 7th place. Zoob left the team and joined upcoming High team Planet Express with former Lowpander teammate, Sheepy and they managed to win the Experimental Preseason 23 6v6 Cup Top bracket.

Trivia[edit]

  • Zoob's steam profile contains no fewer than 22 instances where he finished 2nd, either in a competition with his team or with an individual award. It is because of this he had previously adopted the tagline "Forever 2nd" in his profile.
  • Zoob was at one point a Master level Protoss player in Starcraft 2.
