MastahBates started playing UT99 in 2002, primarily with the little known Zark sniper mod until 2005. At this time he switched over to TDM in time for the Fall 2005 and Spring 2006 ClanBase Cups, eventually finishing a respectable third in Division 3 for both events. It was at this time he switched to console for the next decade, only returning to Unreal Tournament in 2017 and finding his place in euphoria in 2019. His sniper rifle is well respected amongst his peers whilst powerful rockets balance off his skillset. One of the most improved players heading into the UTPL Challenger division, it will be interesting to observe his development during the season.
