Alex "Gruff" Brown is an Australian SMITE player. He is currently playing support for Dark Sided.

Biography

Gruff lives in Adelaide, South Australia.

He started playing games at 7 or 8 years old, when he was given an XBOX and a copy of Halo for Christmas. Having played that for a long time, he moved on to online gaming on the XBOX360, playing Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4. Going into SMITE, he started his competitive journey by applying to FULLMOON, who picked him up as a substitute. The players on the team noticed his game knowledge and understanding and he soon left with a couple of the players to form Hydra eSports.

After that, he played on a couple of smaller teams as a support. Once the OCE servers were released, he created Team Kamikaze with Redoxide and Syntage. After a few roster changes, they were picked up by Trident in January 2015. In April 2015, he stayed on the roster as it left Trident to reform Team Kamikaze.

In July 2015, he left the team to join Too Edgy heading into the Season 2 OCE Pro League. The roster joined The Chiefs together, only one day before its first match in the OPL.[1]

The Chiefs would finish in third in the Pro League, and be forced into the Challenger Cup. After losing their first two games, the team were eliminated from the tournament and a chance to compete in the Season 2 OCE Regional Championship. Just hours after the loss, the team chose to disband.[2]

  • He is studying politics at Adelaide University.
  • He plays cricket, reads, and smokes a lot of cigarettes.
