Kold Domestic Career
Jonas “Kold” Andersen began his LoL career under the name Trashy. He played for Tricked eSports and participated in a string of smaller tournaments. However, his first notable showing happened on Reason Gaming. Together with his teammates, Kold attended the 2014 EU CS Spring #2. Reason Gaming had a solid run and qualified for the playoffs where they defeated Mousesports with a 2-1 score. But this was the end of the line for them, and they were eliminated with back-to-back losses against NiP and Denial eSports EU.
Afterward, Kold went to SK Gaming Prime. Prime proved their worth in the 2014 EU CS Summer, going all the way to the playoffs and defeating Reason Gaming and NiP to qualify for the Promotion Tournament. There, they clashed with Copenhagen Wolves, losing to them with a 0-3 score. Prime tried their luck one more time in the 2015 EU LCS Expansion Tournament. But a swift 1-2 loss to Reason Gaming knocked them out of the competition.
In the off-season, Kold left the organization to join Enemy in North America. Enemy took over the 2015 NA CS Spring Split with a stellar 9-1 record. They asserted their dominance in the playoffs and defeated Team Dragon Knight in the finals to qualify for the big league. However, the 2015 NA LCS Summer Split wasn’t as kind to them. Enemy struggled to stand to the competition and quickly found themselves playing in the Promotion Tournament. A 0-3 loss to Team Coast put an end to their NA LCS run.
After such a disappointing showing, Trashy joined Splyce in the EU LCS. His team had a shaky run in the 2016 Spring Split, going 5-13 in the regular season and failing to qualify for the playoffs. Not only that but this showing knocked them down to the Promotion Tournament where they had to defend their slot against Giants Gaming. With a victory in a close 5-game series, Splyce managed to hold on to their LCS life.
Then, they brought in Mikyx to play support for them. Thanks to him, Splyce had a massive resurgence in summer. With a 9-6-3 record (wins-ties-losses), they ascended to the second-place finish in the regular season. In the playoffs, they took down H2K Gaming with a 3-2 score and went on to challenge G2 in the finals. Unfortunately, this match ended in defeat, and Splyce had to participate in the Regional Finals to qualify for the 2016 World Championship. There, they scored a narrow victory over UOL to punch their Worlds ticket.
Splyce kept the same roster for the 2017 Spring Split. But they had a hard time standing up to the rising level of competition. And so, Splyce finished the regular season with a 7-6 record and barely qualified for the playoffs. There, they fell in a 5-game Quarterfinal against Misfits.
Splyce tried to recapture their lightning in the bottle next split. Even so, the regular season went the same way, and in the Quarterfinals, Splyce suffered a narrow loss at the hand of G2. Of course, they could still run it back through the Regional Finals, but a 0-3 loss to H2K put an end to their ambitions.
In the off-season, Splyce overhauled its roster, and Kold joined Unicorns of Love.
Kold International Tournaments
Kold attended his first international tournament—the 2016 World Championship—as a part of Splyce. Unfortunately, his team was seeded into the same group with TSM, SSG, and RNG. Splyce struggled in face of such fierce competition and failed to advance to the knockout stage.
