my biography

Koen Schobbers started his esports career in Trackmania in 2007 and received his first contract with a professional organisation, Begrip Gaming, in 2008. In the 10 years that followed, Koen belonged to the top players in the game consistently. The highlight of his career was his first participation at the world championships in Paris,
becoming 3rd. During his career he got in touch with people that had a very stigmatising opinion towards the gaming world. This gave him the inner motivation to inform the world about gaming and esports.
