Cuyler "Huke" Garland is an American Call of Duty player and former Halo player well known for his time with Team EnVyUs, Enigma6 Group, and Denial eSports. In his short Halo career, Huke quickly rose to the top, winning four major events including the Fall 2016 HCS Pro League Finals.

Biography

Halo 5: Guardians

Already established as a top player in the Call of Duty scene but unable to compete due to age limits, Huke burst onto the Halo scene in late 2015, competing in the Halo World Championship 2016 NA qualifiers with an assortment of teams. He eventually settled on the Disobey roster of ContrA, PreDevoNator and bubu dubu, which was eventually acquired by Denial eSports, an organization Huke had previously played for in Call of Duty. Denial qualified for the NA Regional Finals through the Gamebattles ladder and tournament series. At Regionals, Denial upset 6th seeded Team EnVyUs, 4th seeded Team Liquid and 1st seeded Team Allegiance, making it all the way to the finals before losing a 4-2 series to Counter Logic Gaming and finishing 2nd. Huke notably made the grand finals at his first ever major Halo event, alongside three teammates who had also never made a major grand final. Huke garnered significant attention with many flashy individual plays during the tournament. Denial qualified for Worlds through their performance. At Worlds, Denial finished 2nd in its pool after a loss to eLevate, but that didn't stop them as they beat Team Liquid 3-2 to advance to the semi-finals. They ultimately ended up losing 4-2 again to Counter Logic Gaming, resulting in a top 4 finish for Denial.

On April 10th, Huke was released from Denial along with bubu dubu. The next day, he and bubu joined Enigma6 Group alongside Cratos and Shooter. Like Denial, Huke had previously played for Enigma6 in Call of Duty, and it was this link which lead to the team joining the organization. The team qualified for the Pro League at the Summer Qualifier. E6 finished 2nd in the League, notably being the only team to defeat Counter Logic Gaming in a series. At the Season Finals, E6 finished 2nd, losing in the finals to CLG.

Despite his team's strong season and finish, Huke left Enigma6 during the offseason to join Team EnVyUs alongside Mikwen, iGotUrPistola and Snip3down. After beating OpTic Gaming (formerly CLG) in a scrim, and later a Pro League match, the roster began to be considered as a threat to OpTic's position of dominance. At HCS Orange County 2016, EnVy finished 2nd, losing to OpTic in the finals with a 2-10 overall map count against them. EnVy ended up finishing the season with a 13-1 record, good enough for 1st place. Weeks later, EnVyUs attended HCS Las Vegas 2016, where they finished 1st over five other Pro League teams, not including OpTic Gaming. At the Season Finals, EnVyUs successfully captured the throne as they defeated OpTic in two straight best-of-7s (after losing 4-1 in the Winners Finals) to secure 1st place and Huke's first tournament win.

At the first event of HaloWC 2017 season - UGC St. Louis 2017 - EnVyUs came out strong, but were again defeated in the WB Finals by OpTic. This time around, they were denied a Grand Finals rematch after losing to Team Liquid in a 5-game thriller. EnVyUs placed below 2nd for the first time since the inception of the roster. At ME Las Vegas 2017, EnVyUs easily qualified for Worlds with victories over Second Nature and Team CryptiK. They were then defeated 4-1 by Team Liquid, forcing them to make a Losers Bracket run by defeating Luminosity Gaming (4-3) and Pnda Gaming (4-1) to earn a rematch, which they lost 4-2, resulting in a 3rd place finish for EnVyUs. At Worlds, EnVyUs took an early loss to Splyce in Pool Play, resulting in a first round matchup against Team Liquid in the bracket. Liquid defeated them 4-3, sending them to LB Round 1 at the biggest tournament of the year. EnVyUs didn't die easy however, sweeping through Supremacy, TMMT Crowd Pleasers, Luminosity Gaming and Str8 Rippin before taking Liquid out 4-2 in a rematch and earning a spot in the Grand Finals against OpTic Gaming. OpTic made short work of EnVyUs, sweeping them 4-0 and taking their second straight World Championship.

At the first event of the 2017 season, UMG Daytona, EnVyUs won their pool with victories and started the Championship Bracket off with back-to-back sweeps. In the third round, EnVyUs went up against Oxygen Supremacy, a team from the Open Bracket coming off upsets over pro teams. EnVy dropped the first two games of the series but successfully rallied to take a 3-2 victory. In the Winners Finals, they were defeated by OpTic Gaming in their first matchup on the 2017 settings. After a 4-0 sweep over Team Liquid, EnVy moved onto the Grand Final and won two straight game sevens over OpTic to win their first event since the Fall Finals. The EnVyUs roster returned unchanged for the Summer 2017 Pro League season. They finished in an uncharacteristic fourth place with a record of 4-3. At the DreamHack Atlanta Finals, EnVyUs came out hot, sweeping Str8 Rippin and Oxygen Supremacy, but they were swept by OpTic in the third round. After sweeping Evil Geniuses and taking a 3-2 victory over Team Liquid, EnVyUs met OpTic again in the Losers Finals, where they were swept 4-0 and sent home in 3rd.

EnVyUs's performance in the Fall season was much stronger, as they finished in 1st place with a 7-0 record, dropping only four maps all season. At the DreamHack Denver Finals, EnVyUs beat CheckSix Gaming and Team Infused early before a third round loss to Splyce sent them to Losers early. EnVyUs struggled against the 5th seeded Luminosity Gaming but were able to win the series 3-2 and move onto the Losers Semifinals against Team Liquid, who handily swept them 4-0 and sent them home in a disappointing 4th place. Huke retired from Halo shortly after the event, transferring to EnVyUs's Call of Duty team.
