MagikarpUsedFly Wiki biography
Matt Castro was born in Okinawa, Japan on 24 June 1991 so under the zodiac sign of Cancer and holding dual Japanese and American nationality, as he’s the son of US military parents. As MagikarpUsedFly, he is popular for his YouTube channel, on which he mostly uploads “League of Legends” content.
Childhood and education
MagikarpUsedFly is one of the most secretive people on the internet and hasn’t shared anything about his early life with the public. He moved to San Diego in California with his parents when he was seven, but moved back to Japan after turning eighteen. He was quite shy during his high school years and didn’t spend time with his peers but rather stayed at home and played video games – he also knew a few people from his school who were playing the same games as he did, so they connected and played them together. After he tried playing “League of Legends” (LoL) for the first time, he realized he was very good at it, and started competing with his friends who were not quite as good as he was.
MagikarpUsedFly hasn’t talked about his parents either, except that they didn’t like the fact that their son was spending all his time playing video games rather than hanging out with his peers – it is rumored that they are not supportive of his current YouTube career either.
After MagikarpUsedFly matriculated from high school, he decided not to enroll at college, but to rather focus on his gaming career.
Career of a YouTuber
Matt launched his YouTube channel as MagikarpUsedFly on 31 January 2014, with a caption reading ‘This is a gaming channel. Hello I hope you like video games.’ – there are currently nearly 1.2 million people subscribed to his channel, while it also counts more than 382 million views of all his videos combined. While MagikarpUsedFly mostly uploads videos while playing the popular “League of Legends” online multiplayer video game, he can also be seen uploading videos of “Cookie Simulator, “Crawl”, and reviews of random games such as “Kingdom Hearts 3”, and “Super Smash Bros”.
He is also very active on the Twitch platform where he has managed to gather nearly 75,000 followers and more than 325,000 views of all his livestreams combined – he has also saved 19 of his past livestreams, so that his viewers could see them later. In his livestreams, besides simply playing the popular “League of Legends” video game, he also provides tips and directions for his fans which will help them to be better at the game.
The League of Legends game
LoL was launched on 27 October 2009 and was originally called “League of Legends: Clash of Fates”. It is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game originally made for the Microsoft Windows OS.
Two main creators of the popular “Defense of the Ancients” mod for the “Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne” game worked together to create LoL. They had gotten the idea about making the new game after years of playing DOTA – they began working on the game in the beginning of 2005.
The gameplay is the next: there are two teams made out of three, four, or five players (mostly five) who spawn at the opposite sides of a square map. Both teams have their own main building called The Nexus and the winner is whoever destroys the opponent’s Nexus first. There are three paths between them to fight on, and there are three towers of each team placed on every lane – every player controls a single hero which they choose before the start of the game, and they kill creeps which spawn on the lanes every 30 seconds. By killing creeps and destroying towers, they gather experience and gold with which they buy items to make their heroes stronger.
Numerous competitions and tournaments are held every year and LoL is currently one of the most played games in the whole world.
Love life and relationships
MagikarpUsedFly hasn’t shared anything regarding his love life, as he prefers to keep his personal matters to himself. Although he himself doesn’t talk about it, there are rumors circulating around the internet that he is currently dating another YouTuber (female) who is also a “League of Legends” player – she made the first step as she sent him a message during one of his livestreams, after which they started talking. They have allegedly been dating for more than a year now, but this hasn’t been confirmed by MagikarpUsedFly and therefore nothing about his love life can be said with certainty.
Judging by his social media accounts, he currently appears to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
