Shi Yue was the 2006 gaokao top scorer in science in north China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region and went on to study architecture at Tsinghua University. Now she also holds a master's degree in urban planning from Peking University.

In February 2015, Shi Yue opened a "chat room", live-streaming herself playing and talking about online games.

She has developed a huge following as a live vlogger sharing her life online. Due to her distinctive presentation style and outstanding educational background, many have questioned her job choice, wondering why she did not choose a more respected occupation, such as an engineer.

Shi said she gets her interest in playing from her father, who liked playing games when he was young.
