Hai Lam comes from Grandville, Michigan and graduated from Grandville Highschool. During his high school life, Hai was an active participant in the Counter Strike community, and enjoyed many Warcraft III custom games along with climbing the ladder.

League of Legends Career

Hai moved to East Lansing, Michigan, after completing high school in pursuit of a degree in Media Arts and Technology at Michigan State University. He was a prominent member of the League of Legends club on campus.

With the end of the Spring 2012 semester, Hai hit 2500 elo and a top 5 position on the Solo Queue ladder. Using his new-found influence, he was able to gather a team of his own to create No Fear.

Orbit Gaming

On May 25th, 2012, Orbit Gaming announced the acquisition of the roster form Hai's nFear Gaming.

Afterward, Orbit placed 7th/8th at the 2012 MLG - Spring Championship. At the Spring Championship, Orbit defeated vVv Gaming 2-0 in the first round, but lost 1-2 to Counter Logic Gaming Prime in the second round which placed them in the loser's bracket. In the loser's bracket, Orbit defeated Redact 2-0, Team Legion 2-0, and Team SoloMid Evo 2-0. They eventually lost to Counter Logic Gaming EU 1-2 in the fifth round of the loser's bracket.

On June 30th, 2012, Orbit Gaming competed in the Leaguepedia North American Invitational. In the two day online tournament, they were able to finish in first place, most notably defeating Curse Gaming 2-1 in the quarterfinals and sweeping Team Dynamic 2-0 in the finals. On August 26th, Orbit took fourth place at the 2012 MLG Summer Championship, losing to Dynamic 1-2 in the third place match. This led to a tie with Monomaniac Ferus for eighth place in the North American Season Two Circuit Rankings. To decide the last spot for Season Two Regional Finals Seattle, a best of three tiebreaker match was held. Orbit lost 0-2 to mMe and was denied a spot at the North American Regionals.

Quantic Gaming

With the tournament being done, on November 12th, 2012, Hai left Orbit Gaming and joined Quantic Gaming, along with teammates Nientonsoh, LemonNation, WildTurtle, and Yazuki.

This was short lived as Quantic Gaming disbanded due to lack of resources to support the team.

Hai later rejoins Quantic Gaming on Febuary 1st, 2013. He leads the team as they qualify for the Summer Season of the NA LCS.

Cloud 9

Competing under the name "Team NomNom" and then Cloud 9, Nientonsoh, Hai, Yazuki, Wild Turtle and LemonNation would secure a spot in the Season 3 North American Offline Qualifier for the League of Legends Championship Series. However, Cloud 9 would be knocked out of the tournament in the group stage after losing to Team MRN and Azure Gaming.

Initially, Nientonsoh said that Cloud9 would disband in light of the loss. The team later decided to stay together, although Nientonsoh and Yazuki would leave the team and a massive roster swap would ensue. Hai shifted from jungle to mid, and new junglers and top laners were actively being tried out in online competitions. With their final roster of Balls, Meteos, Hai, LemonNation, and SnEaKyCaStRoO finally being set, the team set out to qualify for the NA LCS.

Next Stop: LCS

On Febuary 1st, 2013 Quantic Gaming reforms. Shortly after on April 6th, 2013, Quantic's Roster was set with: Balls, Meteos, Hai, LemonNation, and SnEaKyCaStRoO.

On May 11th, 2013 Quantic qualified for the Summer Season of the NA LCS.

2015 Season

On April 22nd, 2015, Cloud 9 Manager and Founder Jack Etienne posted on the Cloud 9 website that Hai was retiring from competitive League of Legends and leaving the team. This followed a post on the League of Legends subreddit that showed Charlie, the coach of Cloud 9, chatting with a streamer on how Hai had left the house. Hai mainly blamed his wrist injury in his retirement, saying "My wrist injury is something that I simply cannot ignore. It limits my ability to play as much as I need to and my ability to improve. I cannot keep up with the amount of Solo Queue games my teammates play and it’s not fair to them. At best, my wrist injury would have only allowed me to play for another split and that wasn’t even certain."(Hai Lam) Hai also stated that the team morale was at an all time low and that his teammates began to lose trust not only in his shotcalling, but his performance as a player. Hai announced that he is now a Chief Gaming Officer of Cloud 9. On July 4th 2015 (6th week of the NA LCS summer split 2015), Hai returned to LCS as a Jungler for C9, replacing Meteos, who stepped down. Cloud9 lost two bans in their first match of the week against Team Liquid, having announced this substitution late. Hai stated he returned to boost the team morale that had faltered with their worst split since they entered the LCS and help the team avoid relegations with his shotcalling as Meteos stated he was unable to do so and wasn't fit to be a shotcaller and knew the team would trust in Hai more. On stream Sneaky stated it felt better to have Hai replace Meteos and return to shotcalling. Incarnation also stated with Hai he felt he could finally play as he was expected to because Hai would always back him up. Hai's return to shotcalling helped C9 avoid being relegated and for the first time all season they looked like Cloud 9 again. During this time Hai had success on several champions and items that had never seen success in the NA LCS. With the morale returning Cloud 9 ran through the Gauntlet reverse sweeping Gravity and Impulse making it C9's third reverse sweep of the year and finally crushing Liquid 3-1 and qualifying for Worlds in what was called the Cinderella run. Even certain Riot employees, casters, and other teams started to cheer for C9 as they did the near impossible including members of CLG who referred to them as gods.[1][2]
