Hai "Hai" Du Lam is currently the mid laner for Cloud 9.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
