Hard joined [[Cloud9]]'s new Challenger roster [[Cloud9 G2A]] along with [[Solo_(North_American)|Solo]], [[Yusui]], [[LOD]], and [[Stixxay]] in January 2015. Under the name '''C9 Charlies Angels''', they placed fifth in the [[2015 NA Challenger Series/Challenger Ladder|ranked 5's ladder]] leading up to the [[2015 NA Challenger Series/Spring Qualifier|NACS Spring 2015 qualifier]]. Following Stixxay's move to [[CLG.Black]], [[Fade (Ritchie Ngo)|Fade]] joined the team, replacing Stixxay as starting support. The team defeated [[Roar]] and then [[Team Confound]] to qualify for the [[2015 NA Challenger Series/Spring Season|season]]. However, prior to the start of the season, it was revealed that the team had used a ringer in their matches against Team Confound. As a result, Cloud9 Tempest were disqualified from participating in the NACS, and Team Confound took their place. Additionally, Hard and his teammates were all suspended from all Riot-sponsored League of Legends competition until the 2015 Summer Split.<ref>[http://na.lolesports.com/articles/competitive-ruling-cloud9-tempest Competitive Ruling: Cloud9 Tempest] ''lolesports.com''</ref> This ban was lifted at the end of March, allowing Hard and his Cloud9 Tempest teammates to play competitively starting on May 11.<ref>[http://na.lolesports.com/articles/2015-mid-year-long-term-suspension-reviews 2015 Mid-Year Long-Term Suspension Reviews] ''lolesports.com''</ref>
Now unbanned, Cloud9 Tempest participated in the [[2015 NA Challenger Series/Summer Qualifier|NACS Summer Qualifier]], with nearly the same roster as they had competed with in the spring qualifier, except that LOD moved to AD carry, and [[Sheep]] joined. After their first two rounds, Yusui was [[List of Competitive Rulings|temporarily banned for four weeks]] for purchasing botted accounts, and [[Jintae]] was used as a substitute for the finals against [[CLG Black]], which the team won, successfully qualifying for the [[2015 NA Challenger Series/Summer Season|Summer Season]].
The team finished with a 5-5 record and in fourth place. In the [[2015 NA Challenger Series/Summer Playoffs|playoffs]], they also finished fourth, after losses to [[Renegades]] and [[Team Imagine]]. They missed out on the [[League Championship Series/North America/2016 Season/Spring Promotion|Summer Promotion Tournament]] but retained an automatic seed into the [[2016 NA Challenger Series/Spring Season|NACS Spring 2016 Season]].
In the offseason, the roster of C9 Tempest went seperate ways. While his former teammates either retired or joined NACS team [[Ember]], Hard joined [[Echo Fox]], who acquired [[Gravity|Gravity's]] NA LCS spot. Visa problems kept Hard along with teammates [[kfo]] and [[Froggen]] out of competition for several games early on in the season, and despite an upswing after the full roster returned, Echo Fox placed seventh at the end of the spring split - out of [[League Championship Series/North America/2016 Season/Spring Playoffs|playoffs]] but also safe from [[League Championship Series/North America/2016 Season/Summer Promotion|relegation]]. Their overall season record was 6-12, with 6 of those losses coming from their games with a substitute roster as well as a forfeit prior to determining their substitute roster. With their full lineup, their record was 6-6.
In the [[League Championship Series/North America/2016 Season/Summer Season|Summer Season]], Echo Fox had almost no roster problems at all - they substituted [[Grigne]] in for two games in week 3, and switched Froggen to top lane for one game while kfo played mid lane, but other than that they had a completely stable roster. With stability did not come an improvement over their spring performance; while they picked up several individual game wins (including handing [[Team SoloMid]] their only game 1 defeat of the entire split), the team lost every single series after the first week and finished in last place, three series behind the ninth-place [[NRG]]. In the [[League Championship Series/North America/2017 Season/Spring Promotion|2017 Spring Promotion Tournament]], Echo Fox turned their season around and took advantage of NRG's weakness, beating [[Team Liquid Academy]] in the elimination round, losing to the much-improved [[Phoenix1]], and then sweeping NRG in the final series to return to the [[League Championship Series/North America/2017 Season/Spring Season|LCS]] for 2017.
