He has a sister and a cat named Gigi.
It was inspired by the song ‘Kickstarts’ by Example.
A friend of his mother gave KiXSTAr Diablo II when he was around ten-years-old. He started playing FPS games when he was around 10 years old, when he played Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142. He discovered Warface when he was searching through forums for a new video game to play. It seemed interesting to him, especially as it was a free FPS title. So, he decided to try it out.
He learned how to edit videos by watching online tutorials.
KiXsta switched to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Siege Six during its beta stage. He left the pro scene in 2016 and began focusing on commentating, casing and his streaming careers. He continued streaming and competing until his passing in October 2021.
He has a girlfriend.
kiXSTAR has ~1,600 subscribers which should minimally earn him ~$4,000 USD per month, excluding additional revenue from tips, Twitch cheer bit contributions, tournament winnings, sponsorships and advertising.
He has no set schedule, but he tends to stream a few times a week.

You really need to invest time and keep going at it to actually become good at video games. It’s not just something you inherit; you’re not ‘just good’ or ‘just bad’ at video games. You really have to put in effort and time. There are certain levels of natural skill and talent, but you really have to invest your time.
