Zach “ShadeeyShades” Gilbert began his gaming journey with console FPS titles before swapping to PC, where he discovered his love for competitive multiplayer games and became involved in smaller community tournaments for different titles. After he was introduced to Paladins, he took its competitive circuit by the horns and earned his fair share of experience playing for teams like Team Eager and Denial Esports alongside veterans like Bitey and Awry.
In spite of his success in online Paladins tournaments, ShadeeyShades briefly took a leave of absence from the scene before returning as part the Renegades roster. With extensive online play marking ShadeeyShades as one of the more experienced players in Renegades’ lineup, he and his teammates dove into the PPL with something to prove -- but weren’t quite able to make the splash they wanted. Now, as ShadeeyShades heads into Season 2, he’s moving to the SK Gaming lineup in hopes of finding more success.
When it comes to champion picks, Shadeey leans toward a high damage output that matches his playstyle. Currently, Cassie is one of his favorites. According to ShadeeyShades, her prevalence in the meta sort of forced him to play her more, but she became his true favorite in her own right thanks to a fast-paced playstyle that offers high damage, high mobility, and deep dive potential -- all of which fit well with his own passive-aggressive approach to Paladins play.
