My name is Jorien van der Heijden, I am a Dota2 caster/interviewer/host going under the nickname of Sheever. I live in The Netherlands, and I spend almost all my free time gaming. Next to all the gaming activities, which you can find on this site, I am a member of a sorority with whom I regularly meet up and go to parties with. I also love going to the cinema and try to watch as many movies as I can with the time I have available. When watching my stream you might see my cat Diego from time to time blocking the view or just passing through.
I get asked a lot about how I got into gaming and here is a summary of how that happened. I played various games when I was young but never did spend that much of my free time on it. Until one of my sisters got the game Warcraft III (later also the Frozen Throne expansion) and after playing the campaign we discovered the world of Battle.net. We started playing a lot of tower defense, and later also a lot of DotA, until World of Warcraft came out. My sister got an account and I started playing on hers, and later on my dad’s account, until I finally got my own.
It took me 1,5 years to reach hardcore raiding but ended up doing so for 4 years, of which 3,5 years with the same high end raiding guild. I quit before T13 at the end of November but was still used to gaming at least 5 nights a week so I just continued on doing so.
I started streaming on Own3d.tv in early December for Gaming Insight when I got my Dota 2 Beta-Key. Halfway through March 2012 I switched to Twitch.tv where I have been since then.
At the moment I am playing a lot of Dota 2 and trying to get better at it. I am mostly a support player and my favorite heroes are Crystal Maiden, Dazzle, Mirana and Venomancer.
I have started casting matches in March 2012 and I have been a Caster for GosuGamers from April 2012 till the start of January 2013. At the moment I am an independent caster who is looking to find a home in one of the bigger studios. I am still learning more with every cast and always try to improve.
Tips are always welcome!
