Career[edit]

Karrigan joined fnatic around March 25, 2012 and the team won many tournaments that year.[4] With the advent of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene he joined mousesports because "the offer they gave me was really good", and he felt like the Fnatic lineup did not have what it took to be successful in the new title.

On June 5, 2016 he was denied entry into the United States to compete in the group stage of ELeague Season 1 due to new rules regarding Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) travel because he had been to Iran within the last five years.[9] During the matches he missed the team used coach Danny "Zonic" Sørensen in his place.[10] Astralis got 3-4th at the MLG Major Championship: Columbus in March.
