Biography[edit]

2016 Season[edit]

In June, Rikara became the starting AD carry for Nova eSports, a new team that purchased Ember's NACS Summer Season seed.

2018 Season[edit]

After a failed attempt at reaching the LCS with Gold Coin United in the 2017 season, Rikara joined 100 Thieves Academy just before the end of the year. Having just imported Levi from the GPL, this Academy team was met with high expectations. However, visa issues plagued the team and they would ultimately finish the Spring Split with a 7-11 record, just outside of playoffs at 8th place.

Summer Split was the sign of new beginnings for Rikara and the rest of the team. Brandini was imported from TSM Academy as well as Stunt, who was coming off the back of a questionable Spring Split performance on FlyQuest's LCS team. Nevertheless, the team found their stride and much more success, finishing with a 10-8 record, just barely making it into playoff contention. They were ultimately defeated 2-3 by eventual runner-ups CLG Academy in the quarterfinals.

After the LCS roster's successful 3-0 sweep of FlyQuest in the quarterfinals of playoffs, 100 Thieves surprisingly announced that Rikara would be starting over Cody Sun in their semi-final match against Team Liquid, which they would ultimately lose 1-3. Rikara would also start in the first game of their third-place match against Team SoloMid, but was subbed out for the remainder of the set afterwards, despite winning. 100 Thieves would go on to lose 2-3, but qualify for the 2018 Season World Championship as North America's 2nd seed based off of circuit points after Team Liquid's successful finals sweep.

100 Thieves were drawn into group D at Worlds, alongside Fnatic, Invictus Gaming, and G-Rex. In what became one of the most controversial decisions of the 2018 season worldwide, Rikara started over Cody Sun for all 6 group stage games. 100 Thieves finished 3rd in their group with a 2-4 record, eliminated from the tournament.

Both Rikara and Cody Sun left the organization on November 28th, 2018, amidst the signing of former SK Telecom T1 player Bang to the roster.
