Trevor "Stixxay" Hayes served Counter Logic Gaming as a sub for almost a year before working his way up the ranks to start at the ADC position. His debut as a starting player at IEM San Jose in November of 2015 was remarkably solid, and marked the beginning of his professional career. He hit the ground running in the 2016 NA LCS Spring Split with a 4.2 KDA and respectable 70% kill participation. Stixxay wasn’t content with being a “serviceable” ADC, however, and he stepped up to a new level at the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational in Shanghai, pulling in compliments and notice from the world’s elite.
Stixxay quickly became famous for his ability to completely take over a game and single-handedly will CLG to wins. He earned comparisons to North American greats like Doublelift practically overnight. While his consistency is still an issue, Stixxay is undeniably talented and has the chance to become one of the most-feared AD Carries in all of North America. He has proven that he can slug with the heavyweights, but this year Stixxay will be going for knockouts.
