Phillip "NydusHerMain" Sohn 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, and it enveloped his gaming life. He became an avid Elo player in StarCraft over the years, reaching the rank of Grand Master in StarCraft 2. He was introduced to League of Legends by his friends. At first 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.
League of Legends Career
Eventually, NydusHerMain joined a team with Bobbyhankhill, playing support on a roster that would iterate itself into Team Astral Poke. After the team disbanded, he played on a few other teams, including 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 they lost to 1 Trick Ponies in the online qualifiers. Eventually 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, Nydus parted ways with Astral Poke, joining Westrice's new team, FXOpen e-Sports (later To Be Determined). The team gained a notable reputation in the amateur scene, winning the major event: the 2013 MLG Spring Championship.
On August 2nd Nydus was officially added to the roster of CLG as a sub. On September 23rd, he left To Be Determined, and the next day on September 24th he joined Gold Gaming LA (later The Walking Zed). However, before the roster was picked up by Cloud 9, Philip left the team and since then has been teamless.
