Aziz "Hax" Al-Yami (born May 7, 1994) is a Fox player from New York formerly playing for VGBootCamp. He is currently ranked 38th on MPGR 2018.

Biography[edit]

Hax is a player based in Manhattan. He started performing well at a very young age, reaching Top 8 at GENESIS when he was only 15 years old. These high placing finishes continued at multiple major tournaments across the country, including Top 8 finishes at Pound V, Apex 2012, and Apex 2013.

He was considered the best Captain Falcon player in the world after defeating Darkrain at MELEE-FC10R Legacy in 2012. After finishing 5th at The Big House 3, Hax decided that Captain Falcon was limiting him as a player, and switched to Fox. This transition led to some below average results, including a 17th place finish at Apex 2014. However, his improvement as a Fox player proved to be quite rapid, and on May 4, 2014, Hax successfully won a set against Mango in the Grand Finals of WHOBO MLG, although he was unable to repeat the feat in the second set. Similarly, Hax reset the bracket against Mew2King in the Grand Finals of Zenith 2014, but faltered in the second set. Hax's status as one of the premier Fox mains in America was cemented by his performance in the 2015 California tournament Do You Fox Wit It?. In addition to his first place finish at this event, Hax boasted an impressive 5-0 record in the Fox Round Robin exhibition, defeating other prominent players including SFAT, Lucky, and Silent Wolf.

On July 3, 2013, he was sponsored by CLASH Tournaments.[1] On January 17, 2014, he joined VGBootCamp.[2] It is unknown when his sponsorship with CLASH Tournaments ended.

On January 1, 2015, Hax announced that he would be taking an indefinite hiatus from Smash as a result of a hand injury.[3] He made his return to Smash after recovering from his hand surgery at Super Nebulous 3, where he took 4th. However, Hax has also struggled with severe insomnia since March 2014, which has impacted both his performance in and ability to enter tournaments.[4] As a result, his hiatus from the competitive scene will continue until this issue has been resolved. During this period, his sponsorship with VGBootCamp lapsed.[citation needed]

Hax has since been working to introduce and legalize Hitbox-style controllers to mitigate his hand problems.[5]

He was sponsored by Even Matchup Gaming for the duration of Get On My Level 2017.[6] Hax joined Even Matchup Gaming officially on January 29th, 2019.[7]

Trivia[edit]

  • In 2013, Hax joked about the future of Melee where players had become so good that the only viable character would be Fox. Matches would be decided through a game of rock-paper-scissors to determine port priority. This joke spawned the "20XX" meme, which is ubiquitous in the community.
