Michael "PolarBearMike" Heiss is the support for Team RivaL.


PolarBearMike lives in Westminster, Maryland.

After making his competitive debut with teams such as Hi Five and Resist Gaming, PolarBearMike finally got his name known when becoming the support player for Eager. He took over when Aror decided to step down.

After Team Eager, failed to qualify for the SMITE World Championship at the NA Super Regionals, PolarBearMike decided to leave the team to pursue a new roster in Season 3. [1]


  • The origin of his name comes from his inability to gain a tan during the summer months, with his friends labeling him as a "fluffy white polar bear".
  • Was confused for PeccYz, a former competitive player and current Hi-Rez employee, as they looked quite similar. He was then given the joke name of "PolarBearPeccYz".
  • Loves the actives Blink and Sunder in combination.
  • The nickname "Professor BM" was given to him by F. in the final match of Group D Season 3 when PolarBearMike was invited to cast.
  • He has a golden retriever named Brandy who is 12 years old as of November 2016.
  • The random faces he makes are somewhat of a meme to other SMITE pros.
  • Is one of the influences of the Team Allegiance  Athena skin, due to both Weak3n and Incon also playing the goddess to a high degree.
