Zach "Nien" Malhas is the AD Carry for Team Fusion Gaming.


Nien started out playing Heroes of Newerth, often with Scarra and he was ranked in the top ten. He also played World of Warcraft, where he was a rank 1 Warlock in PvP. After seeing Scarra's success in LoL and getting bored of HoN, he moved on to League of Legends. Being picked up by Team MRN as a substitute, Nien played a lot of Solo Queue, getting to the number 1 spot in Challenger. Team MRN then made Nientonsoh a starter, putting him at AD Carry, replacing Heartbeat, who in turn became the starting support player, forcing AtomicN to become a substitute. On May 26th 2013, Nientonsoh was named Top laner for Counter Logic Gaming, replacing HotshotGG.[1]
