Esports News UK caught up with Kyle “Vanity” Garthwaite from Vexed Gaming’s UK CSGO team at EGX 2017.
We asked about the 20-year-old’s ambitions with the team, winning his first LAN at i61 and playing in 1v1s at the HyperX stand at EGX.
Vanity spoke about playing in the FaceIt Pro League (FPL) and wanting Vexed to strive towards even bigger and better things.
Vanity told Esports News UK: “I want us to become the best team in the UK, and move onto the European scene and just work our way up. I want to be the best.”
