Emil "EmilZy" Schmidth Nielsen is the support for Pittsburgh Knights.


EmilZy was born in Aarhus, Denmark and has since then moved to Odder, Denmark. He currently lives in Valencia, Spain. EmilZy started PC gaming at the age of 11, obsessed with Minecraft, and later found himself playing SMITE in October 2012 with the occasional game of Call of Duty: Black Ops.

EmilZy's competitive SMITE Career started as PrincessTomato of Worth Gaming was going on vacation and the team needed a substitute for the SPL Season 1 EU Qualifiers. EmilZy took the offer, ended up winning the weekly tournament and the team decided to make EmilZy a permanent part of the team by putting him in as coach/sub. In June 2014 Worth Gaming was acquired by Team Coast where EmilZy stayed as Coach until the team disbanded in December 2014.

As season 2 approached, Potato Boys was formed with EmilZy as support and shout-caller along with former team member Shaggyshenk. In February 2015 they were acquired by London Conspiracy with EmilZy as team captain.


  • His career started at the age of 13, making him the youngest player to have ever competed in the SPL. He was the youngest player in the SPL across North America and Europe until Season 3, when that distinction was taken by Marauder.
  • The name change to EmilZy from Emil0witchen was inspired by former teammate BugZy.
  • He is the shot-caller for his team.
  • He kept speculation of him moving to Obey Alliance down by saying he was turned down for the role a month earlier.
  • He was the first coach to keep records for strategies, including a notebook for picks and bans, and an iPad for rotation times, ward spots, etc.
  • In addition to his native Danish, he is also fluent in German and French. As with most European players, he is also fluent in English. He is also in the process of learning Spanish.
  • He lived in a gaming house in Valencia, Spain, with teammates Yammyn and emilitoo during season 5.
