Early on, ThePlatformKing had been a talking point around the watercooler as there had been rumours that he was quite good at Gex 2. He was in Group G with KingEurope1, TheMachineKing and Michael. In his first speedrun, however, he lost to KingEurope1, a competitor with one of the worst records in IAS history. He then beat TheMachineKing and Michael. Although his match against Michael was never uploaded, it was said that ThePlatformKing completely thrashed Michael.

His Round 2 match against Heydavid17 took forever to get done. But once it was it showed ThePlatformKing losing in a race to beat Mooshoo Pork in Gex 2.
