Erlend "Nukeduck" Våtevik Holm is the MidLane Icon.png Mid Laner for Vitality.

Biography

Nukeduck is a League of Legends player hailing from Arendal, Norway. He first started playing Super Smash Bros Melee. He would move on to playing World of Warcraft, Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) but was not able to speak English back then (which hindered his chances at going further).

Early in Season 1, his floorball coach introduced Nukeduck and his friends to League of Legends. The Norwegian player had a lot of fun due to playing with them constantly, and he stuck to LoL ever since (unlike his friends).

League of Legends

After a Platinum rank finish in Season 1, he meteorically rose through the solo queue rankings, as his champion pool was well adapted to the Season 2 meta. Playing against the same people made him enjoy the game, just as he used to enjoy it when playing with his friends. He teamed up with puszu and MeDroiD on his first team. Competitive gaming made him step up as he would play against better players as his trials would shape his playstyle.

Nukeduck qualified to the Season 3 World Championship with his team Lemondogs, finishing 2nd in the Summer Playoffs. However, he moved to Ninjas in Pyjamas alongside mithy and Zorozero on the wake of Bjergsen's departure to Team SoloMid. As the team failed to hold its relegation spot against KMT, he participated in the EU Challenger Series until June 2nd 2014, when he and his teammate Mithy were suspended from the LCS and the Challenger Series for six months and subsequently released by Ninjas in Pyjamas.[1][2]

Season 5
When his ban was lifted, Nukeduck signed with ROCCAT as the starting Mid Laner for 2015 Spring. The team finished 8th place in the regular split with a 6W-12L standing and failed to qualify for the playoffs.

He stayed with the team for the Summer Split where they finished 5th in the round robin stage. In the playoffs, ROCCAT finished at 5th-6th place, as they lost to Unicorns of Love (2-3) in the quarterfinals. The team was given the chance to make it to the 2015 World Championship through the Regional Qualifiers. They won over GIANTS! Gaming (3-0) in the first round but lost to Origen (2-3) in the second round.

In the off season, Nukeduck left ROCCAT and joined Vitality, a newly-established team that got into the LCS by acquiring the spot of Gambit Gaming. He will be playing for said team in the 2016 EU LCS Spring Split alongside Cabochard, Shook, Hjarnan and kaSing.

Season 6
In his first split with Vitality, the team finished 3rd in the regular split with a record of 13W-5L. In the playoffs, however, they again lost in the quarterfinals ending their run at 5th-6th place.

Summer Split, on the other hand, ended earlier than the team might have expected, as they finished 7th in the regular split and did not make it to the playoffs.

For the 2017 Season, the team decided to make some changes with the roster. On December 15th, Nukeduck and Cabochard renewed their contracts with the team. This means he will be playing under the Vitality banner for the upcoming Spring Split but with 3 new teammates, which include Djoko, Steelback and Hachani.
