It has been a remarkable nine or so months for Jonas, losing his job as an opera singer on a luxury cruise ship, he like so millions of players found great joy in Riot Game's Valorant given a full release in June.
Jonas grew as a streamer on Twitch, garnering a reputation for his ingenious Sova dart lineups and bringing a level of entertainment not often found in Valorant streamers a game, that like CS:GO, is not particularly streamer friendly.
His standing in the community and his lifetime of on-stage experience made him less a surprising choice that at first seemed to join the European broadcasting team for the first wholly Riot-produced Valorant tournament - First Strike. Though he could be forgiven for being surprised himself, as Jonas was asked by Riot to make his way to Berlin for the broadcast just 24 hours before it was set to begin.

His talents as a singer were also not wasted as he serenaded the at-home audience with his own composition "Amazing Darts", of course, with a CGI Sova by his side.
As Valorant goes from strength to strength, and with a more complete esport calendar lined up for 2021, Jonas looks to have added a very fruitful string to his bow.
