YellOwStaR's first gaming experience came at a very early age; he was two years old when he played on the Megadrive. At 8 years of age, he transitioned into PC gaming and, upon playing StarCraft for the first time, stuck to the RTS genre. In 2002, he switched to WarCraft 3 due to his brother's insistence. It took him 3 years to step into WC3's competitive scene and make a name for himself under the monikers Unlucky, Power and Psyko. He started off as an Undead player but changed to Night Elf mid-way through his WC3 career. In 2009, he was introduced to League of Legends by his brother and has stuck to it ever since.
