Hello, my name is Niika Nurmimaa, better known as “nurr3″ amongst friends and gamers inBattlefield 3. I’ve been playing BF3 since it came out, just thought I’d try it out for fun, and now I’ve been playing it competitively and I love it! I started out as a public hero, just focusing on having fun and making crazy kill streaks. Soon after that I went through a couple of teams before I found myself in siX-Finns (XFi), playing with Finland’s best BF3 players. My biggest achievements are 3rd and 2nd place in DreamHack’s BF3 tournaments, and also winning countless online tournaments in Germany, Sweden, Finland, and across Europe. I am proud to say that I play for one of Europe’s top Battlefield 3 teams.

Since I was a kid, I haven’t really played any games on a professional level, only with friends playing for fun. It’s always been my dream to be so skilled at a game that I can call myself a professional gamer and take my gaming seriously, travel across Europe participating in different tournaments. Now with the help of Mad Catz I have achieved that and I’m thrilled to be a part of competitive gaming with friends playing by my side. But all in all, thank you Mad Catz for the support and the chance represent you in every possible event!
