His career in esport began for Stückenschneider in 2010. In 2014 he reached the EU LCS with the Copenhagen Wolves. Despite a remarkable achievement by Stückenschneider, who had been repeatedly voted “Most Valuable Player”, the wolves played only moderately successful. His career really took off in the following split. In 2014 Summer Stückenschneider joined Team SoloMid and went on to win the split with them.

“Amazing’s” best success came at Origen: His all time career high was a semi-final match at worlds, a feat not many players get to boast about. The native Bocholter is looking forward to the sporting challenge at FC Schalke 04 Esports: “I want to do my part to ensure that we will be successful in the upcoming split. I can not wait for the season to start. “
