Victor Locquet, better known by his Rocket League nickname Fairy Peak, is a French-born professional Rocket League player. One of the well known long-time veterans in professional Rocket League community, Fairy Peak was born on May 26, 1998, and we're going to take a deep dive into his Rocket League settings and bio.
Every Rocket League player knows how important camera settings in this soccer game are. People have always tried to find the perfect camera settings to use, but ultimately, it's up to every player to choose their preferences. So, here are Fairy Peak's camera settings, which are interestingly quite similar to his teammate and countryman Kaydop's. Perhaps there's something there.
|FOV (Field of View)||110|

Who Is Fairy Peak in Rocket League Esports
Fairy Peak is an active professional Rocket League player from the European region. He was born in France and began his Rocket League career in 2016.
He started his career in Supernova, a team that has since disbanded. After changing a few teams, Fairy Peak signed up for Team Vitality (called Renault Vitality at the time) in February, 2018. The roster was changing somewhat frequently, but Fairy Peak still remains a part of what was considered one of the greatest rosters of all time, alongside Scrub Killa and Kaydop, although Scrub Killa was eventually replaced by Alpha54 in 2020.
Eventually however, Fairy Peak was moved to a substitute position on Team Vitality in April, 2022, and eventually left the team in August the same year. Just a month later, Kaydop was also dropper from Team Vitality, and the two have since teamed up again on Team Solary, with Chausette45 being the 3rd man on the Solary roster. The team up as Solary was very recent, less than a month prior to this writing, so it's impossible to say how much success they will all have on their new team.
Throughout his illustrious career so far, Fairy Peak has had myriads of major successes, though he reached his...erm, peak, during his time in Team Vitality. Even though he played for Team Vitality for "only" 4 years, he was instrumental in winning a huge number of tournaments, and the only way to do it justice is to simply list all the "S Tier" tournaments he managed to win 1st place in.
- RLCS Season X - European Championship (June 2021)
- RLCS Season 7 - Finals (June 2019)
- RLCS Season 7 - Europe (May 2019)
- RLCS Season 3 - Europe (May 2017)
Bear in mind that this list is comprised only of top tier tournament he won. There are many other successes he's had in top tier tournaments, such as achieving 2nd place in RLCS Season 8 - Finals in 2019, RLCS Season 8 - Finals in 2019, RLCS Season 5 - Europe in 2018, and RLCS Season 3 - Finals in 2017. He also managed to win 1st place many EU regionals, such as Gfinity United Kingdom Elite Series - Season 3 or RLCS Season X - Fall: EU Regional Event 3, though these technically don't count as "S Tier". Still, they required beating many other high level teams, such as EndPoint, Dignitas and Team Envy, among others.
While Fairy Peak has failed to achieve a significant success in a major tournament since the beginning of 2022, and has in fact failed to even qualify for most of those, he has remained a very consistent presence in Rocket League, and it would be extremely hard to find someone in the current Rocket League community who would not recognize the name Fairy Peak.

Fairy Peak's 1 v 1 Career
Although his 3 v 3 Rocket League career has been more than successful, Fairy Peak was also one of, if not the actual GOAT (Greatest of All Time) 1 v 1 player in Rocket League. As a testament to his 1 v 1 skills, he actually went a whole year undefeated in the 1 v 1 game mode on Johnny Boi's stream, beating out the likes of Ahmad, Scrub Killa, Kronovi, Alpha54 and many others.
As a result of this, and many other 1 v 1 successes, he was labeled as the actual GOAT 1 v 1 player in Rocket League by Johnny Boi on his recent stream. This stream was in 2022, so well after Fairy Peak's prime, which means that Johnny Boi still believes that Fairy Peak's "peak" has not yet been topped by anyone even years later.
Will it ever be topped? It remains to be seen.
