Anatoliy "AnatoLiy" Alekseyenok is a Ukrainian SMITE player. He is currently a caster for Hi-Rez Studios.

Biography

AnatoLiy was born in Ukraine, and moved to Brooklyn when he was little. He first learned of SMITE through a competitive match of CS:GO, where a childhood friend recognized his gamertag and introduced him to SMITE. He was one of the first competitive SMITE players, becoming part of the iconic Team Dignitas. Although he relinquished his role multiple times to become a coach, he would always return to the role. AnatoLiy played for Team Eager during Season 2 Spring and Summer. Only days before the start of SPL Season 2 NA Fall, the team announced AnatoLiy would go inactive for the split due to personal issues.[1]

A few weeks later, AnatoLiy announced that he officially resigned from competitive SMITE, and changed his name to phNx.[2] Within a month however, he had changed his name back. He stated on stream that while he did not plan on playing on a team in Season 3 he did plan on coaching a team, which became reality when he began coaching Fnatic in March 2016. This coaching job was only temporary, as he joined Hi-Rez Studios as a caster two months later.
