Wadid previously played for Rising Star Gaming and SBENU Sonicboom in Korea, before joining ROCCAT in the EU LCS in 2017. He began to make a name for himself in Europe, and joined G2 Esports in 2018. With G2, Wadid placed in the top four at the 2018 World Championship after famously upsetting Royal Never Give Up in a five game series.
He left G2 before the start of the 2019 League of Legends European Championship Spring Split and joined Rogue as their starting support player. Wadid fluctuated between the team’s LEC and academy rosters, and the main squad placed 10th overall in the LEC Spring Split.
Wadid comes to FlyQuest with three years of experience and proven international success. Due to his pedigree, it's likely that he may start over or share time with Juan “JayJ” Guibert on the main roster.
