Officially retired from eSports this year and currently a car sellsman, Cooller can be considered to be Russia’s greatest FPS player ever. He was incredibly successful in Quake III and Quake IV, but he also played his part in Quake Live. The Russian has represented teams such as mousesports and Moscow Five during his career.
It all started in 2002 at 15 years old, when the back then young Russian went to the World Cyber Games. This was the kick start for a great career, winning several major events, including ESWC, QLAN, CPL Winter 2005, WSVG Sweden, Extreme Masters European Championship, and DreamHack.
He was renowned for his sometimes controversial remarks, but also by his think-based style and great timing. Over his career he racked up around $150,000 in prizes.
The Italian Stallion, one of the most successful Professional Gamer in the last 10 years, has played 9 different games including Quake III Arena, PainKiller, FIFA, Quake IV and of course Quake Live. Over the course of his time, stermy has built his own name and became successful both as a gamer and businessman.
When he was 15 he attended the World Cyber Games in South Korea representing Italy in the Quake III tournament, being one of the youngest contestant at the time. Even though he didn’t have major success this tournament, it was followed up by some great performances, with top placements in the CPL PainKiller World Tour, WSVG in Quake IV, and captaining the CGS team San Francisco Optx to a second place in the World Finals, playing FIFA.
After a successful run in Quake Live, both in duel and team tournaments, the Italian now plays for the best ShootMania team in the world.
