Benjamin "Bickum" Chmura is an American SMITE player. He is currently the coach for SoaR Gaming.
Bickum lives in Chicago, Illinois.
Bickum has been playing video games since the age of 9. He mostly played Call of Duty games.
He entered the competitive Smite scene through lots of ranked play. He played in the Challenger Cup throughout Seasons 0 and 1 but was unable to find a suitable team for himself.
Bickum (then known as bchm) found his first taste of true competitive Smite on COGnitive Gaming in Season 2, after their former captain and support player Jigz had left, forcing their jungler, Homiefe, to fill in the hole. Bickum would play as the jungler for the remainder of the Summer Split, until he was dropped from the roster of COGnitive Gaming along with the rest of his team on July 23rd.
On September 30th, Bickum joined Team SoloMid as their solo laner after their previous solo laner, Divios, had been benched for creating a negative team atmosphere. He would remain with them for the rest of the Fall Split, attending the Super Regionals and placing 5th. Shortly afterward, he left the team to pursue a better opportunity and changed his name as well.
- His former in-game name consisted of the initial letter of his first name and the first three of his last name.
- Did commentary at the Season 2 Super Regionals.
