History
2012 – Present
2010-2012

Patric "RIO" Nordmark is a Swedish Quake player with a long and mixed career in general. Although playing some Quake I in school with friends in the early teens, it wasn't until much much later he started playing Quakeworld. It was instead Quake III Arena that really got him into online gaming and Quake multiplayer.

Having played in all the major game modes TDM, CTF and Clan Arena, always at a high level has made him a very versatile player. This probably served as a huge benefit in transitioning into QuakeWorld in 2008 when RIO first appeared in the NQR Rookie division. Steadily rising through the ranks in QuakeWorld 4on4 and eventually teamed up with friends made along the way in the top team Sweden Suddendeath where he found his QuakeWorld home.

You can still notice traces of Quake III Arena in his playstyle. Arguably having one of the worst movement of all div1 players he instead relies heavily on raw aim and getting that NET dmg in all situations along with smart team play. Probably the best 4on4 boomstick in the world.

Trivia / Other achievements

RIO finished 3rd place in the QuakeCon 2017: Quake II 20th Anniversary Duel, ironically making him a more successful Quake 2 than QuakeWorld player earnings-wise :) The first ever LAN-title was finishing 2nd during in Dreamhack 2004's major Quake III Arena tournament. Even tho Quake III Arena was the second biggest competitive game (after CS) at Dreamhack, this was at a time when e-sports was still in it's cradle and the price money compared to the Dreamhack major events of today shows how much progress has been made in the sport.
