Linus "Limmp" Blomdin rose to prominence as a top player in Heroes of Newerth. He first appeared in competition in 2012 and notably won the HoN Tour Season 2 World Finals with stayGreen in 2014 alongside his brother Rasmus Johan "Chessie" Blomdin. Despite enjoying great success in the MOBA, the roster of stayGreen split up and left HoN behind to begin competing in Dota 2 just six months after winning that championship.
Limmp remained with stayGreen as the team entered into Dota 2 and was sponsored by compLexity Gaming. coL achieved very little during Limmp’s time there, which saw him leave after six months to join Ninjas in Pyjamas.
Limmp’s time with NiP was generally strong as the team posted solid results throughout a very active season. NiP wasn’t great, but the team earned top-three placements in a number of notable events including taking first in joinDOTA MLG Pro League Season 2.
Despite this, NiP fell well short of qualifying for The International 2015. When the team struggled in other qualifiers at the start of the new season, it resulted in Limmp packing his bags, returning to compLexity, and taking Chessie with him.
compLexity was generally underwhelming in the 2015-2016 season and consistently posted poor to middling placements in tournaments. Despite this, the team successfully qualified for two of the three majors during the season and made the cut for a wild card spot in The International 2016. The team failed to make the main event of TI6, which resulted in Limmp leaving.
Limmp’s future was unknown in the immediate aftermath of TI6 as he bounced between a few teams in one-off appearances, but he eventually found a steady team in Alliance. This season was a disastrous one as Alliance struggled to qualify for events and stumbled in every tournament they did make it to. Once again, the season ended with Limmp failing to qualify for The International and leaving a team after just one season.
Limmp found his way back to North America and rejoined compLexity Gaming. The 2017-2018 season saw the introduction of the Dota Pro Circuit, which coL struggled in as it failed to qualify for majors and flopped in minors. The team did qualify for a few majors as the season neared its conclusion, but suffered consistently early eliminations before falling short of a spot at The International yet again.
Limmp remained with compLexity Gaming for the 2018-2019 season, which went even worse. compLexity only qualified for a handful of events during the year, with its best performance in a live event being a fifth-place finish. compLexity failed to qualify for The International 2019 and Limmp left once again to return to Alliance.
Though his previous stint with Alliance was dreadful, Limmp’s second run with the team was arguably the best season of his career to that point. The team quickly established itself as a force by winning DreamLeague Season 12 and qualified for the first two majors of the 2019-2020 DPC season, placing fourth at DreamLeague Season 13.
After the 2019-2020 season was derailed, Alliance played in a bevy of European and CIS leagues, posting mixed but sometimes strong results throughout.
