The 26-year-old rifler in Valdemar Bjørn "valde" Vangså has been regarded as one of the brightest stars in the Danish Counter-Strike scene for what seems like an eternity. Whilst he is yet to reach the heights that many predicted him to reach in the early stages of his career he has proven that with hard work and consistency comes results.
But how did it all start for the Dane? In an interview with Betway Esports, the OG player explains how his journey in the Counter-Strike scene started. From being a young talented player to becoming a Counter-Strike professional - it all started with six months:
"After I finished college I spent six months in the military and I just felt it wasn't something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So I made an agreement with my dad to have half a year where I could just stay at home full-time and just play CS all the time. I think having that pressure taken off your shoulders from not having to go to school at the same time or not having to work but just literally sit at home 24/7 playing video games, really helps you develop your game."
