. . . Bjergsen . . .

Bjerg was born on February 21, 1996 in Denmark.[5][6] He grew up in Mejdal, Holstebro with his two brothers.[7][8] Prior to League of Legends, Bjerg played several games casually, including Counter Strike Global Offensive, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and Diablo 2.[9]

Bjergsen joined professional League of Legends in 2013 as a member of the Copenhagen Wolves in the European League of Legends Championship Series. Bjergsen was unable to play with the Copenhagen Wolves until Week 3 due to age restrictions put in place by Riot Games.[10] For the first two weeks, he was temporarily replaced by the team’s substitute player, cowTard. After he turned 17 years old on February 21, he was able to rejoin the main lineup and play their remaining LCS matches.[11] After finding success with CW, his team was acquired by and re-branded as Ninjas in Pyjamas (NiP) for the Summer LCS.[11]

On November 2, 2013, Bjergsen left NiP to move to North America and joined Team SoloMid as their mid laner.[12][13]

He was the second player to cross over from the EU to NA LCS, after Edward left Gambit Gaming to join Team Curse during Season 3.[14]

On January 23, 2014, Riot Games announced that Bjergsen violated the LCS rules by approaching and encouraging a contracted LCS player to leave his position at Lemondogs.[15] He admitted the violation and was fined $2,000.[16][better source needed]

Bjergsen won the Most Valuable Player Award at the conclusion of the 2015 North American LCS Spring Split.[17] With TSM, Bjergsen has won NA LCS championships in 6 splits.[needs update]

TSM qualified for the 2015 World Championship.[18] At Worlds, TSM came last in their preliminary group with a record of 1–5, eliminating them from the bracket stage, a trend that would repeat the 2016[19][20] and 2017 World Championships.[21]

TSM failed to qualify for the 2019 World Championship. In the 2020 LCS season Summer Split, TSM finally reclaimed the championship title, their first since 2017, earning them a spot at Worlds.[22]

In October 2020, after a seven-year career with TSM, Bjergsen retired from professional play and transitioned to the head-coach position for TSM.[23] Bjergsen dismissed speculation that his retirement was prompted by TSM’s disappointing performance at the 2020 Worlds, saying that he had been planning it for some time.[7] On November 21, TSM signed Tristan “PowerOfEvil” Schrage from FlyQuest to replace Bjergsen at midlane.[24]

In September 2021, Bjergsen announced a desire to resume a player role. In October 2021, he rejected a contract renewal offer from TSM, and announced he would be leaving the team.[25] On November 24, 2021, Bjergsen joined Team Liquid.
