Over the last year, Cloud9’s former analyst, physiX, has burst on the Vainglory scene. She’s played Vainglory8 at EU, writes strategical posts that are published by Broken Myth, is a part of this group Girls & Glory, but has really left her mark in her aggressive analysis and draft art. PhysiX hails from the SEA region and is presently enrolled in college in the UK. Shortly after that the 2017 World Championship at Singapore, physics announced she would be departing the aggressive scene in Vainglory to pursue her education in engineering. We wanted to take this opportunity to sit down with her because she transforms into a new part of the community.

PhysiX: It’s a funny story, actually. When I began using Vainglory hack, I didn’t even have a system that could play Vainglory yet. My boyfriend introduced me 2014 on his iPad, and I truly loved the match. Not sure if it was called Kindred then or maybe not, but I remember watching him play (and hijacking his device to perform!)

Well, it isn’t called Vainglory with no reason, and that I had some fairly rough fantasies. Gankstars was one of those teams I really looked up to at the time — my favorites during my time watching VIPL as well as the catalyst which sparked my idea to be part of the competitive scene as an analyst. Back then I was just another player like anybody on the market, with just a little knack for numbers and writing,
