Nevix Girlfriend

Romance is uncommon among eSports professionals, and Nevix is no exception. He clearly spends an immense amount of time refining his techniques and trying new plays, which leaves little time for relationships. However, legends such as Ninja, of Fortnite fame, have proved that professional gamers can make time for a Player 2. If Nevix were to branch out on his own in the future, he’d have more time for a significant other. And if we’re lucky, we could see this more personal side of him.  

Nevix Net Worth

Nevix’s earnings have slowed since he began playing. He earned $25,656.94 in 2016, when he was only 22 years old, and he has earned a total of $32,422.02 from Overwatch. However, the inclusion of the San Francisco Shock in the Overwatch League means that Nevix will be training for a few high-risk high-reward tournaments, rather than several smaller competitions.

Nevix Scandals

Nevix has not been involved in any major scandals, but he has been criticized for his hero choice at times. Nevix is a flex player, so he is expected to fill the gaps of his team’s lineup. He was especially criticized in his performance during the most recent Overwatch League, shortly after Brigitte was added to the game. He attempted to play as Brigitte but couldn’t effectively support his team. After switching to D.Va, he was quickly destroyed by the opposing Brigitte and Reinhart. Nevix appears to have learned from this mistake, but he does occasionally default to D.Va when his team is struggling, even when she may not be the most effective choice.

Nevix eSports Journey

Nevix is a lovable underdog of the eSports arena. That being said, his skill was apparent from the very beginning. Nevix joined the Misfits in 2016, and his team won the Amazon Gaming Series by shutout in June of that year. The Misfits continued this streak a couple weeks later, by securing victory in The Battle, a minor Overwatch tournament. Understandably confident, the Misfits tackled the 2016 ESL Overwatch Atlantic Showdown. This premier event proved too much for the Misfits, and they lost to Fnatic by a single point.

However, the Misfits were not discouraged, and attempted the Overwatch Open in September of 2016. Nevix and his team defeated EnVyUs 3 to 1, securing a grand prize of $100,000. This proved to be a defining moment for Nevix. His aggressive, effective playstyle earned the respect of other Overwatch players, and more importantly, eSports team recruiters. By this point, Nevix had developed an extremely adaptable toolkit. His primary hero was (and is) Genji, but he had made several impressive plays with D.Va and, surprisingly, Ana. He secured another victory in the first season of the Overwatch Underdogs tournament, just 4 days after the last Misfits win. The Misfits also secured a $30,000 victory in the Dreamhack winter tournament of 2016. Unfortunately, this ended Nevix’s reign of victories with the Misfits. Nevix attempted two more tournaments as a Misfit and failed to place.

This may have been the end of Andreas Karlsson’s gaming career, but another team saw his value. In August of 2017, Nevix joined the roster of Cloud9. After leaving the Misfits, Nevix decided to grow his personal following. This vital decision created the Nevix we know today. More of his plays ended up on YouTube, his Twitch streams gradually attracted more followers, and his Twitter grew towards it’s current following: over 13,000 strong. Ironically, the only tournament of interest during this time was against the Misfits in the first season of the Overwatch Contenders. Cloud9 lost 2 to 3.

In September of 2017, Nevix was revealed as part of the San Francisco Shock’s initial roster. The team placed 9th in the inaugural season of the Overwatch League in June, earning them a prize of $50,000. Nevix is unlikely to play in any minor tournaments soon. Instead, he will be preparing for the next season of the Overwatch League. You can see what he’s been up to on Twitter, @Nevix_OW.
