Darker is a League of Legends player hailing from Kaliningrad, Russia.
His first experience in gaming was at age 3, as he played the Lion King game on PC. He then delved into the Real-Time Strategy genre, playing Civilization and Stronghold. He would then move on to Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) where he played competitively at a high level, participating in LANs in the process.
Along with one of his friends (Vizakenjack), Darker would try the Open Beta of League of Legends. They would stop playing it, only to return months later as the game experience improved. They would also introduce Alex Ich to the game and would play it intensively.
