With a trademark use of age in the nickname, Thor*x*, this promising Dane might be one of the future of QW. Brother of the two year younger Oscar, Thor is the more seasoned of the two.
He started playing QW at the bare age of 4, after asking his father what games he used to enjoy. Thor was quite insistent on him showing him the game. That's how they started playing Quake. Thor, Oscar and their dad. A family thing.
In 2019, at the age of 14, Thor attended the Get2Gether Second Edition. He was approached by zigg1zagg1 - 16 year old at the time - also promising player from UK, they joined ranks as NextGen. This unholy alliance is probably the youngest 2on2 team within competitive QuakeWorld.
He owes considerable respect to "redbeard" ( Ruskie) for skills, patience and motivation. Later on, maybe at the age of 9 or 10, crond spent alot of time helping Thor refine his skills, especially on dm4.

In 2017, Thor's old man was persuaded to fill an empty spot in Shifter Exhibition Tournament, which eventually lead to the showdown of a father-son BO3, with Thor emerging victorious.

Always ready for a "high 5" match! (c) Thor— I'm 5 ... you're probably higher? (c) Thor's dad
- Thor*age*, as in Thor*5*, came about as a "protection" of Thor from a, seems reasonable to say, "somewhat more mature audience" - to simply "shield" Thor from the most vulgar language as well as any outrage that could spring from less tolerant people who could not understand why Thor could not respond to their written questions in english. With a mentioning of age in his name, challengers "out there" had an anchor of data to lean against before deciding to battle against him. Unfortunately, but probably quite expectedly, that could not prevent distrust about Thors claimed age to prevail with quite a large number of people until Thor showed up in person at QHLAN2017.
- QHLAN2017 ranges as Thors moment of absolute best life experiences to date. Thor says he will never forget the meeting with all the people he had learned to respect and admire over such a long time.
