During the 2014 League of Legends World Championship group stage in Taiwan, Svenskeren registered an account by the name TaipeiChingChong on the Garena servers and was subsequently fined and suspended by Riot Games for his racism.[1] The incident was also criticized by the Taiwanese version of the newspaper Apple Daily.[2] SK Gaming ultimately finished 9–11th.

TSM was involved in a dispute with H2k-Gaming over Svenskeren's contract as both sides claimed they had signed him first.[3] Eventually he signed with TSM, replacing Lucas "Santorin" Larsen as their jungler.[4] At his first tournament with the team, they finished 3rd-4th at Intel Extreme Masters Season X - San Jose.
