"Ataraxia" (Real Name: Nathaniel Mark) is a British League of Legends player, currently a Hunter for Dignitas.

Biography

Ataraxia was born and raised in Llanberis, Wales but has since moved to Liverpool where he studied Psychology at the University of Liverpool. He has been playing video games since the Nintendo 64 and Playstation 1 era, and has before getting into SMITE played Starcraft (Masters league). His favourite game is Dragon Age: Origins. Ataraxia started playing SMITE in 2012 and was on various teams for the weekly tournaments before being a founding member of Agilitas (later Aquila and Titan).

Originally starting in the solo lane position of Agilitas, Ataraxia soon moved on to become the hunter of the team. After the team just barely missed qualifying the the Season 1 SPL, Agilitas managed to win the SPL Season 1 EU Challenger Cup and SPL Season 1 EU Wildcard. This lead to being picked up by COGnitive Gaming and become Aquila. As Aquila the team managed to win the SPL Season 1 EU Regionals which finally lead the roster to being picked up by Titan. Under Titan Ataraxia helped his team reach a 2nd place at the SMITE World Championship 2015.

After Titan finished in 3rd place during the EU SPL Spring Split, Ataraxia decided to swap roles with Confrey heading into the Summer Split and became the new solo laner for Titan[1].

During the fall split, it was announced that Ataraxia would move back to the Hunter role, as Titan brought in BroTuZ as the new solo laner.[2]

After Titan failed to qualify for the Smite World Championship 2016 the team disbanded. Ataraxia put together a roster to form the team Hungry For More, with himself as the team's Captain.

Trivia
