Born in france in 1995. its not exaggration kenny grew up in CounterStrike. He would try play CS at the age of 6 because his older brother "Cyril" was already playing. When Cyril was away at school kenny would get some time on the computer and though Counter-Strike was his refuge from family issues. what his found in it was longer lived.
We are 10 years old apart with kenny. at 8 years old, he was good as we were. and then we participated in local tournament and we won thanks to kenny. he was 11 years old
Kenny would return from school and play the game late until evening, drawing concern from his mother. But those late nights allowed kenny to make his way into france's competitive Counter-Strike scene. and not only he had found a foothold in the game. he had discoverer his niche in it as well. an AWP has been an inportand part of competitive CounterStrike from the very beginning. The powerfull Sniper rifle that offered one shot one kill in the head or body but offsetly low fire rate and a cosiderable monetary investment. dispite a loud signature sound, its precision weapon harrnessed by the sniper's reflexes to bring instant ruin to the oppsition.
The young kenny show affinity for the weapon and while he has said that its hard to pin point the exact moment that he decided to take on the sniper role he says he feels that the weapon choose him. working his way up trough the french scene. kenny met a player called Bless and began to play at the comunity mumble server called "The Wall". which is where his career would begin earnest. With most of the macth was played online. Kenny Prowress drew attencion from some on the server.
Most player didn't get the opportunity to start of by their region best teams but, Kenny did. in 2011 he was trialing with VeryGames, a French Counter-Strike:Source roster that fielded the likes of Ex6tenz, NBK, RpK, and apEX. but kenny debut an offline event was anything but smooth. while he was able to prove that he wasn't cheating , the pressure later round get him. A pattern would repeat it self later in his career
it was preaty obvious that VG would not choose him. he preaty much failed at PxL - that was his first event, if i remember correctly, he was preaty bad. but i didn't change my mind, he was really young and you could see even on his face he was a child coming out of nowhere.
kenny later said
individualy, i was very good player, but i had to work on everything else.
a CS:GO commentator "Sadokist" said
i thing a lot of it has to do with his playstyle. Certain team don't necessary favor him to be aggresive as he is. he kind of had to prove himself in that regard but, i mean you talk about success coming trough source and what not he was young player it's hard to get a chace when you're that young.
while VeryGames continue without Kenny, he quickly found a spot on Team eXtensive!, and although he hadn't made the cut with VG, he didn't view that expirience negatively considering the compitition he had faced. but five months later kenny would finally get his chance to join the VeryGames starting roster following Mk's removal.
