Also known as: Milk, "Ma lek"
Maelk is one of the oldest and most experienced Dota players in the world.
He has been playing Dota since 2004. He has always been famous for his game insights and understanding of various strategies. He gained recognition in the DotA Allstars times playing for Meet Your Makers, where he stayed for over six years. He attended TI1—his first Dota 2 tournament with the team, which he placed fourth at. They were the first team to disband after the event. Jacob disappeared from the professional scene for half a year. He joined Evil Geniuses in February 2012. The team did not perform consistently back then. Maelk spent more than a year playing for the team. He placed third at The Defense and second at DreamHack 2012 Winter—these were his notable accomplishments during the time. Winning mini-tournaments did not mean much for the team, and at TI2 the squad failed: they placed 9th-12th.
After the team had performed well at DreamHack 2012 Winter, they started losing their strength. At last, in May 2015 Maelk stated he was leaving the team and ending his gaming career. He took up eSports management: he was the head of Schalke 04, an eSports football club.
He occassionally plays for the semi-professional team Vegetables Esports Club.
Maelk has always been a good Support player. His best heroes are Chen, Enigma and Venomancer.
