Pontus "Vardags" Dahlblom is the AD carry for KIYF eSports Club.

Biography

Vardags was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. He started playing video games when he was just seven years old, beginning with Counter Strike. He got into playing League because he played a lot of DOTA and Warcraft 3, and saw the trailer for LoL.

His competitive career began when he and his real-life friends made a team and realized they were pretty good. They began competing in local LAN tournaments and from there he fell in love with playing competitively. Prior to playing ADC, Vardags played top lane in Season 1 and 2. If he was needed to switch roles, mid lane or support would be his most preferred positions.

2014 Season

Vardags was a member of Team Property early on in the season, but joined Unicorns of Love mid-season.

With Vardags now on the team, a quarterfinal finish in Summer Series #2 meant that the Unicorns of Love had qualified for the Summer Playoffs.

The playoffs went particularly well for the team, despite losing to H2k-Gaming in the semifinal. The Unicorns of Love went on to beat Ninjas in Pyjamas in the 3rd place match, securing themselves a spot at the Spring Promotion Tournament.

With the Promotion Tournament came a chance for Vardags and the Unicorns of Love to qualify for the 2015 LCS Spring Split. The Promotion Tournament was a huge success, with the team beating Millenium 3-2 in their promotion match-up. This meant that Vardgas would be playing in the LCS the following season.

2015 Season

Unicorns of Love were the European team fan-voted to IEM San Jose.[1] With a roster of Vizicsacsi, Kikis, PowerOfEvil, Vardags, and Hylissang at the tournament, they surprised audiences by making it to the semifinals after defeating Lyon Gaming 2-0 and then Team SoloMid 2-0. They placed second at the tournament, losing to Cloud9 in the finals.

The EU LCS Spring Season was a huge success for Vardags and Unicorns Of Love, finishing the regular season in 5th place, partly thanks to Vardags' impressive performances on  Caitlyn. This meant that team would participate in the Spring Playoffs, where they would face and beat Gambit Gaming in the quarterfinals. Vardags and the team managed to make LCS history when they became the first team to knock out a 1st place regular season finisher in the playoff semifinals, taking down SK Gaming convincingly. They went on to lose the playoff final to Fnatic in a close-fought series, finishing 2nd in their first LCS split, and picking up 70 Championship Points in the process.

The Summer Season was equally as successful for Unicorns Of Love, finishing the regular season in 4th place, this time partly thanks to Vardags'  Sivir and  Corki performances. This ensured the team's participation in the Summer Playoffs, where they overcame Team ROCCAT in the quarterfinals but were taken out themselves in the semifinals by a dominant Fnatic. 40 Championship Points gained here secured Unicorns Of Love a spot in the 2015 Season Europe Regional Finals. Despite their high seeding, they were beaten by Origen in the final of the gauntlet.
