Biography[]

Maurice “Amazing” Stückenschneider is a German League of Legends player hailing from Bocholt, Germany. He first started playing games on consoles, and his first game was Crash Bandicoot when he was between five and six years old. He stuck to console gaming and played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and games from the Final Fantasy and Metal Gear Solid series.

It was only in 2010 that Stückenschneider started playing PC games, as he participated in ESL events in Counter Strike: Source. However, his breakthrough came in League of Legends, a while after his brother introduced him to it. Initially dismissive of the cartoon-like appearance of the game, Stückenschneider returned to it sometime in Season 1, specializing in AD carries such as
Ashe
and
Ezreal
.

League of Legends Career[]

Amazing’s drive to make an impact on the games he played drove him to main jungle. Using primarily
Udyr
,
Shyvana
and
Lee Sin
, he rose through the ranks and peaked at 2.8k Elo in Season 2. His progression drew notice from many teams, the most notable at the time being LCS Season 3 Qualifier participant Team Acer. A string of failed attempts to qualify for the LCS almost caused him to retire, but Shook’s defection to Alliance allowed him to settle in one more team, the Copenhagen Wolves.

2014 Season[]

It was with Copenhagen Wolves that Amazing finally reached the LCS. The Spring Split proved to be the break he needed, and he gained a reputation for his high mechanics and proficiency on
Lee Sin
,
Elise
, and
Evelynn
. However, even with Amazing’s two-time weekly MVP performance, the team overall didn’t see much success, and they were forced into relegations. After defeating Denial eSports.Europe in the Summer Promotion Tournament, Amazing left Copenhagen Wolves.

On May 3, 2014, Team Solomid announced that they had acquired Amazing and that TheOddOne had stepped down from the starting jungle position. Showing great synergy with Bjergsen, he immediately made an impact with the squad, but he saw criticism in his small champion pool. Despite this criticism, the Summer Split, his first split in the NA LCS, was a success for both him and TSM. Amazing was named weekly MVP in the 4th Week and the team finished 3rd overall. Inspired performances by Amazing and the team saw TSM place 1st at the Summer Playoffs, securing themselves a spot at the World Championship.

TSM were placed in Group B with Star Horn Royal Club, SK Gaming and Taipei Assassins. Amazing and the team secured four wins in the group, placing 2nd-place finish behind SHRC, and earning a spot in the quarterfinals. There they faced eventual winners Samsung White at this stage, and went out after only taking a single game off the Korean team in the best-of-5 series.

On October 11, 2014, it was announced[34] that he was stepping down from the TSM roster in order to return home to Europe. Amazing cited[35] personal reasons for leaving the team.

2015 Season[]

On December 17, 2014, it was announced that Amazing, mithy, and Niels had joined Origen along with former Fnatic players xPeke and eventually sOAZ.[36][37]

Origen qualified for the EUCS Spring Qualifier via the Challenger Ladder, where they beat Millenium Spirit in their bracket final, securing their qualification to the EUCS Spring Season. Origen were unbeaten until their penultimate game of the split, against LowLandLions.White, and despite dropping that one game easily secured first place in the regular season. Origen also placed highly in tournaments throughout this period, winning the ESL MWC Challenge and Gamers Assembly 2015. The Spring Playoffs saw Origen beat Reason Gaming in the semifinals 2-1 and then going on to sweep Copenhagen Wolves Academy (the team formerly known as LowLandLions.White) in the final to win the tournament and secure automatic qualification to the LCS Summer Season.

Throughout the EU LCS Summer Season, Origen jostled for 2nd position with H2k-Gaming, while Fnatic sat far ahead in an undefeated 1st place throughout. Impressive individual performances including Amazing’s Gragas helped the team to a 2nd place regular season finish, and with it a bye past the Summer Playoffs quarterfinal round. In the semifinals, Origen faced off against rivals H2k and won 3-1; perhaps even more impressively, they took two games off Fnatic in the finals despite ultimately losing the series. Their second-place overall finish earned Origen 90 Championship Points, enough for the second seed in the 2015 Season Europe Regional Finals. There, they beat Team ROCCAT in a 3-2 series and then Unicorns of Love in an easy 3-0 and successfully qualified for the 2015 World Championship, where they would play as Europe’s #3 seed.

At the 2015 World Championship, Origen were drawn into Group D along with Team SoloMid, KT Rolster, and LGD Gaming. Origen went 3-0 in the 1st week of the round robin and ended the group with a 4-2 record, meaning they would advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. Origen won their quarterfinal series 3-1 against the Flash Wolves, becoming the first Western team to win a best-of-five at a World Championship, but were later knocked out by SK Telecom T1 in the semifinals.

2016 Season[]

Origen and Amazing competed at IEM San Jose, and were given a bye to the semifinals due to Fnatic’s withdrawal from the tournament. The team fielded their roster from the previous season, but with PowerOfEvil in the mid lane and xPeke taking a coaching role. They took down Team SoloMid in the semifinals, and went on to beat Counter Logic Gaming in the final – winning the tournament without losing a single game.

Origen’s performance at IEM San Jose resulted in their qualification to the IEM World Championship. At the tournament, they first lost to Royal Never Give Up in the upper bracket of their group before then losing to Team SoloMid in the lower bracket, resulting in the team’s elimination from the tournament.
