Now it is time for the next big step of my career. With years of experience, I am finally ready to come back to Norway and work with Bifrost. I am glad to have found a new home, and I believe that together we can achieve great things. I am very happy to have received this opportunity!"
Bio - Isak “Energy” Fjell
Energy started playing League of Legends all the way back in 2011, when the game was in Season 1. Energy has always been a very competetive person, and after only 2 years of playing, he was ranked among the top 1% of playerbase.
In the early days he attempted to play professionally. He participated in several small tournaments and LAN events, and by this point he had started to make a name for himself in the Norwegian scene. He signed for the norwegian team BX3, and attended one of Norway’s biggest LAN events, Gigacon. At this time he was recognized by pros and amateur players in solo queue, and ended up getting scouted to Turkey a few months later. Energy dropped out of school, flew to Turkey, and lived in a gaming house for 7 months. However, before the Turkish Championship League (TCL) started, their manager acquired a massive sponsorship deal. They were sponsored by one of Turkey’s biggest football clubs, and took on the name Besiktas Esports.
The team was a massive success, and dominated the turkish league, going undefeated with the main lineup and sweeping the finals 3-0. This qualified the team for the ‘International wildcard Invitational’, that they won, which again qualified them for the Mid-Season Invitational against the best teams in the world.
Without much of a break, he continued the next TCL split strong, but despite a good showing they were unable to win it again, and lost the finals. He then went back to Norway to finish studies, and spent the next year playing for the norwegian team nDurance Gaming. He played for nDG for about a year, but ventured out of Norway again once he finished school. Since then, he has spent the last few years playing in every european national league, such as Spain, Germany, Italy, UK and others.
