Philip "NydusHerMain" Sohn is a high elo support player who is currently teamless.


Philip was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. His love of gaming started at the age of 8 when his mother bought him Starcraft: Brood War which enveloped his gaming life. He became quite the avid, proficient RTS player in StarCraft over the years, actually becoming a Grand Master in StarCraft 2. He was introduced to League of Legends by his friends. He thought the game was "stupid and boring" in comparison to StarCraft but many of his friends started playing. As he was the last of his friends to begin playing, he was "stuck" with the support role. As he reached Level 30 and began solo queuing, he decided that it was easier to gain elo by playing Mid. However, at 1900 ELO he picked up the support role again and ended up playing both. Eventually, he joined Bobbyhankhill's team and mained support on an older roster of Team Astral Poke. After the team disbanded, he played on a few other teams such as Team Normal Stars and Curse Academy. He was close to to playing in the Season 3 LCS Spring Qualifiers in February 2013 with Motion Gaming, but lost to 1 Trick Ponies in the online qualifiers. After joining various teams for a short while, he ended up rejoining Team Astral Poke in its 2013 reincarnation. The team made headway in online ranked 5's and were able to participate at the Season 3 LCS Summer Promotion. The team lost in the Challenger bracket of the tournament to ex-Quantic Gaming. After losing the chance to get onto the LCS, Philip parted ways with Astral Poke and found himself on Westrice's new team, FXOpen e-Sports(now To Be Determined). The team gained a notable reputation in the amateur scene, winning major event, 2013 MLG Spring Championship. On August 2nd NydusHerMain was officially added to the roster of CLG as a sub. On September 23rd, Nydus left To Be Determined. On September 24th Nydus joins Gold Gaming LA.
