Another former professional player, Nikola “LEGIJA” Nini, told Android that he once encountered the same problem and that he was able to persuade Valve to return his Steam account by mentioning that he had stickers on his account and that Valve had paid him sticker money. LEGIJA claimed that after telling Valve that his Steam ID should be sufficient, Valve later apologised to him.

From 2015 to 2020, Android was a professional CS:GO player. During his career, he was most notably a member of Complexity and Envy. Together with Rory “dephh” Jackson, yay, Peter “stanislaw” Jarguz, and ShahZaM in September 2018, he assisted Complexity in making it all the way to the quarterfinals of the FACEIT London Major.

In 2020, the Canadian left CS:GO esports to pursue a career as a VALORANT player, and in 2023, he put his mouse and keyboard away to attend college. Android probably wants to use his account to play Counter-Strike 2, but he is unable to do so until Valve fixes the issue.
