Nenne began his career with LuxuryWatch Red in 2017 when he helped the team qualify into APEX Season 4 from Challengers and propelled them into the playoffs. He then joined Lunatic-Hai's post-OWL roster and participated in the Nexus Cup 2017, achieving a fourth place finish.
He was signed to XL2 Academy, the Excelsior's academy roster, at the beginning of 2018. He and his teammates qualified for Contenders playoffs in both Contenders Seasons 1 and 2. They made it to the grand final of Season 2, where they lost to Fusion University in four maps.
Nenne joins an already crowded DPS lineup featuring Pine , Saebyeolbe , Libero and Fl0w3R . Fl0w3R, like Nenne, was promoted from XL2 Academy last month. The additions of Nenne and Fl0w3R now put the Excelsior roster count at 10.
The next season of the Overwatch League begins February 14.
