Biography

Kai is from The Netherlands. Prior to playing Paladins, he played games like Crossfire, CS:GO and League of Legends. Faenex had been a one-trick Cassie player before he started to get in the competitive scene. There he changed to the DPS main. With the meta shifting to a more double tank focused composition, Kai changed his role to flexible depending on the team’s needs. Now he mostly fills in the secondary tank role. Faenex makes sure he’s prepared to play any champion (except Pip) so the team can rely on him no matter what he plays. Kai “Faenex” van Duppen has a fair share of prior gaming experience across multiple titles and genres, but he’s forged a reputation in Paladins for being one of the most flexible players in the scene. Though he admits to being a “one-trick Cassie” in his early days, Faenex has grown into the sort of player who always adapts to the task at hand and demonstrates near-endless resourcefulness whenever he enters the realm—and this has proven invaluable for his current teammates on Natus Vincere, considering that it helped them take home the Paladins World Championship trophy at HRX 2018.

There was a time when Faenex was locked into a damage-flex role, but now he’s frequently piloting secondary front line champions for his team. According to him, though, he’s prepared to play any champion in the Realm so that his team can rely on him no matter what. (Well, any champion except for Pip.)

Whenever this world champion pro hits the character selection screen, his go-to pick is Tyra. In Faenex’s eyes, she’s a powerful champion with the potential to hard carry a game when enemies ignore her. He also believes she’s criminally underplayed, which adds another layer of fun whenever he picks her up.
