João "maniaKK" Ferreira is a Portuguese SMITE player. He is currently playing solo for NRG Esports.


From Barcelos, Portugal, maniaKK started playing games when he was 4 years old on an old console. He played many games such as RuneScape, Trackmania Nations, Warrock, Counter-Strike 1.6 and others.

He entered the competitive SMITE scene in November 2013 when he got invited to a team called Wellox. He eventually got kicked and made team Bloodytech in February 2014. A few months later, he received an offer SK Gaming to tryout for their team. After placing 4th in the SMITE World Championship under SK, him and the team decided to make the switch to Fnatic.

Fnatic remained a top 3 team throughout Season 2, even with a controversial role swap between teammates CaptainTwig and Zyrhoes. Despite their strengths, maniaKK and Fnatic was unable to overcome rival team Epsilon eSports, typically settling into a second or third place finish in splits, alongside longtime rivals Paradigm. However, at LANs, their performance was even weaker, falling behind their counterparts and their NA opponents. At the EU Regional Championship, although Fnatic received a bye through the first round of competition, Fnatic was crushed 3-0 by Paradigm, relegating them to the Wild Card tournament. maniaKK and Fnatic defeated London Conspiracy and Eager to progress to the World Championship, where they were, unfortunately, the only non-NA or European team to fall below fourth place.

maniaKK remained on Fnatic while teammates CaptainTwig and Badgah left, but despite his long-heralded performance in the past, he was unable to bring his team victories. At the end of Season 3's Spring Split, the team disbanded, with maniaKK having not appear on any team for the rest of Season 3.

He made his return in Season 4 as the new solo laner for Obey Alliance, replacing Variety.


  • He created his nickname for his RuneScape character in 2002.
  • His favorite game is Counter Strike 1.6.
  • He was an ESL admin on the BLUB Game section.
  • He believes he's good at impersonating people.
  • Is well known for yelling loudly at LAN.
  • His playstyle is similar to that of 0mega: taunting liberally while being extremely dominant in-lane.
