So I was browsing on the YouTube machine and I came across this channel. Link. Apparently this "Athene" is the world's best gamer. At least that's what he claims. It kinda sparked my curiosity. So I'm asking for your opinion, is this guy for real?

He seems very full of himself, but I'm kinda wondering if he's just full of it.

EDIT: I should alert you. Some of his videos contain language.

I don't have to click the link to know which Athene you talk about, that damn Frenchy... he thought he was gods gift to Paladins in WoW.

He is just a big head.

So he isn't really as good as he claims to be? According to him, he is completely unbeatable.

The best player in the world is currently Lee Young-Ho and he actually has the records and rank to back it up.
Link

He has game mechanics and strategy down to the bone. Even retained his first place rank in the KeSPA pro-circuit through a damaged wrist. He's only trained in StarCraft but his level of understanding the mechanics of the gameplay as well as the meta-game is beyond anything most people seen. The only gamer that I know that could possibly give him a run for his money in high level gaming is Justin Wong (fighting games).

Also good gaming gear =/= game skill (well at least for keyboard/mouse). 90% of the people in professional Starcraft use those old white keyboards from the 90s early 2000s that run like 10 bucks at Wal-Mart.

After looking at his videos and such, he seems more like someone that would be furthering the public awareness of E-Sports rather than being a pro-gamer himself. Overtime (the magical age is usually 24) your gaming skills start to deteriorate due to being unable to keep your hands at optimal speed and precision. Despite that degrade, they usually retain a lot of high level meta-game (or "theory" ) and can give high level explanations of stuff (another example would be Day[9] ). This is not exactly a bad thing.

The "Best Gamer in the World" may be a gimmick intended for "over-the-top" style humor rather than actually literally being the best.

Speaking of StarCraft, I know that AtheneWins really is friends with Kiwikaki (who is a legit professional player). It is known that Kiwikaki does playon on this guy's account giving him the stats so that he can continue "trolling" the world. Either way, we do know that he does have ties with professional gamers and does indeed train with them.

More on the above, His "best protoss video" was actually AtheneWins giving Kiwikaki his account to gauge himself how good he was after lots of training or so (so his AtheneWins stats on the battle.net rankings is actually Kiwikaki's gameplay, not his).

He also claims to be the best Protoss player in the world.

"The reason why I am so fascinating is because and game I start to play, anything I play, I know that if I am dedicated and I put myself into it, I will destroy it. I'll destroy it just gloriously. Because I'm indestructible. I'm unmatchable. Like, there is no one that can even come close to my level of skill. And it's not because I'm some kind of god or something, I'm not stating I'm some kind of god, but it's just because my skill in games is unmatchable."

This guy is so full of himself. He would probably get put in his place by one of the pro players.

Big talker mostly...but he is half-way decent...a friend of mine used to live near the guy and is on his server...says he's a douche and is only just above average in terms of skill level(on WoW at least). Gegon, a gnome mage, was also popular on Youtube back when, if anyone knows of him.
