Peter “ppd” Dager began competing in Heroes of Newerth in 2012, playing with various teams before landing with compLexity Gaming. He enjoyed solid success in the game, but was part of a mass exodus from the game in 2013. He then began competing in Dota alongside former HoN teammate Ludwig "zai" Wåhlberg on international teams Stay Free and Super Strong Dinosaurs.

In early 2014, ppd and zai then began playing alongside Evil Geniuses captain Clinton “Fear” Loomis on SADBOYS. The team was sponsored by EG after just a few competitions, and the organization would be ppd’s home for several years to come.

ppd captained Evil Geniuses to become one of the top Dota 2 teams in the world, winning numerous live events throughout 2014. The team earned a direct invitation to The International 2014 and took third place despite playing without Clinton “Fear” Loomis.

The following season would be even better. Evil Geniuses won a number of prominent tournaments throughout the year, most notably the 2015 Dota 2 Asia Championships.  This was followed by the team famously winning The International 2015.

The team wasn’t as successful in the following year, but still found success in Valve-sponsored majors. Roster issues took a toll on Evil Geniuses as the season progressed, but the team still managed to find its footing and post another strong third-place finish at The International 2016.

That would be ppd’s final tournament with Evil Geniuses. He took on a managerial role within Evil Geniuses from there as he was promoted to CEO of the organization after Twitch ceded ownership. ppd remained a steady presence in professional Dota 2 as he worked as a caster and analyst and later formed a competitive team of his own known as Wanted.

Following The International 2017, ppd stepped away from Evil Geniuses entirely to return to active competition. He formed a new team, The Dire, alongside zai. The team was sponsored by OpTic Gaming less than a month later.

Following his split from Evil Geniuses, ppd gained a reputation for being outspoken on various matters. Though he had previously butted heads with numerous other pro players on social media, he began speaking out on matters ranging from tournament formats to Valve’s handling of Dota 2’s competitive regions. These were largely well-received, but were interspersed with public disputes with other players, including former teammate Syed “SumaiL” Hassan.

OpTic was a steady presence at Dota Pro Circuit events during the 2017-2018 season, mixing together strong placements with dramatic burnouts. OpTic failed to earn a direct invitation to The International 2018, but took a spot in the event through the North American qualifiers. The team posted a respectable eighth-place finish at the event.

Following The International 2018, OpTic Gaming left Dota 2 as ppd formed a new and predominantly European team. The new squad was sponsored by Ninjas in Pyjamas, which saw ppd transition to competing in Europe for the first time.

As with OpTic Gaming, NiP successfully qualified for majors but failed to consistently find success at those majors. The team earned a direct invitation to The International 2019, but posted a disastrous last-place finish at the event.

ppd was the sole player to remain with NiP in the following season, forming an international team that bounced between North America and Europe throughout the year. The team was hit hard by travel restrictions that were put in place in 2020, which saw NiP forced to compete with numerous substitutes. ppd retired from competitive Dota 2 in April 2020.
