Biography

Nickolas "Hakuho" Surgent played for multiple challenger teams in 2014 and 2015, including Zenith eSports, Escalate Legion Gaming (for the AlphaDraft Challenger League and the League One tournament), and Aware Gaming.

2016 Season

In late 2015, Hakuho joined Team Frostbite, and they placed in second in the HTC Ascension tournament, behind Team Liquid Academy. They later reached the NACS Spring 2016 Qualifier via the open bracket. However, once again they lost to Liquid Academy, failing to make the spring season. After their loss, Team Frostbite disbanded.

After Team Frostbite's disbanding, Hakuho joined Dream Team as a stand-in support player for two games in the NA Challenger Series. The next day, he joined NA LCS team Renegades, replacing former support Remi.[1] After Hakuho's addition to the team, Renegades continued their 5-game losing streak another 7 games, through the first day of week 7. However, with a roster change replacing RF Legendary and Flaresz (who had been sharing the top lane) with Seraph and Alex Ich with Ninja in a trade with Team Dragon Knights, Renegades turned their season around enough to finish 8th after winning a tiebreaker with Team Impulse. In the Summer Promotion Tournament, Renegades defeated TDK 3-0 and requalified for the Summer Season.

However, on May 8th, Riot released a competitive ruling stating that Renegades would be forced to sell their LCS seed due to multiple rule violations, and Chris Badawi would be permanently banned from "association or affiliation with any team or organization participating in a Riot-sanctioned league".[2] On May 18th, Team EnVyUs was announced as the new brand.[3]

Hakuho stayed with EnVyUs along with Seraph and Ninja. Fueled by strong practice going into the season, the team started out 4-0 in series records after two weeks, sharing first place with Team SoloMid. However, in the weeks that followed, they slipped down the standings all the way to sixth place, where they sat from week 6 through the end of week 9. With the bottom seed into the playoffs, EnVyUs faced Cloud9 in the quarterfinals where they pulled out a game 1 comeback win before losing the next three to be eliminated. They ended the season with 20 championship points. In the Regional Finals, EnVyUs defeated Team Liquid's new roster with Arcsecond jungling but then lost to Cloud9, who went on to win the gauntlet.

2017 Season

EnVyUs' 2017 Season started off very rough. In the Spring Season they performed badly and lost a lot of games. Their 9th place finish in the regular season meant that they had to fight for their LCS spot in the 2017 Summer Promotion Tournament. After a 3-2 victory over Gold Coin United, Team EnVyUs got to keep their spot. Their Summer Season was noticeably better and they finished in 6th place with 8 wins and 10 losses. However in the playoffs they were defeated 2-3 in a close Quarterfinals series by Counter Logic Gaming. This would end their 2017 season as the team didn't have enough Championship Points to attend the Regional Qualifiers. The team was not accepted into the newly franchised NA LCS in 2018. Following this Hakuho left the team in November and a month later joined the newly formed Clutch Gaming.
