Biography

Halo 5: Guardians

Nurix emerged in the EU scene in mid-2016, joining NTSC alongside TaLic, Shaady and Cruzz. After a few weeks, SolaR was brought in to replace Cruzz, and the team saw success in the Summer 2016 Open Circuit, winning the final two cups of the season and the Open Circuit Finals, earning themselves a spot in Pro League Relegation. NTSC had a close match with French rivals PuLse Gaming in the first round of Relegation, losing 4-3. In their first Losers match, they were trounced 4-0 by Dinosaurs, ending their hopes of becoming pros for the Fall season.

After sitting out the Fall season, Nurix returned for Halo World Championship 2017 season, forming a team alongside TaLic, TchiK and CxLii for the Gfinity London Qualifier. After placing highly in two online cups and earning a bye into the Championship Bracket for London, the team was signed by beGenius ESC. In London, beGenius won a close match against SkitLite before falling 3-0 to the juggernaut FAB Games eSports. After 3-0ing Team Menace in the Losers Bracket, they were beaten in a close match by Epsilon eSports, ultimately going home with a top eight finish and no Worlds spot. beGenius had one more shot in the LCQ, but losses to Team Infused and Best Routers EU lead to a top six finish and another failed attempt at qualifying.

Going into the Summer 2017 Pro League, Nurix, TaLic and TchiK replaced CxLii with Sica. The new roster finished second in the Summer LCQ, earning a seed in the Pro League. The team was shortly after signed by Divine Domination. After two weeks of hard losses to strong teams, TaLic left and was replaced by Speed. The team's fortunes did not improve, and they ultimately finished in sixth place with a 0-5 record, not winning a single map all season.

For the Fall 2017 EU Circuit, Nurix struck it big, landing a spot on top French team Supremacy alongside SLG, Fragxr and PuniShR. After low finishes in two of the cups, Supremacy stepped it up on LAN at Gfinity London, taking out Vexed Gaming and sweeping exceL eSports before being swept out of the Winners Finals by Team Infused. Supremacy responded with another victory over Vexed, but they could muster only a single map win in their Finals rematch against Infused, going home in second and qualifying for the DreamHack Denver Championship Bracket. In the lead-up to Denver, Supremacy officially announced the Nurix signing. In Denver, Supremacy were again beat in the first round, this time by American pro team Ronin Esports. They were able to beat fellow European team exceL eSports in their first Elimination match, but they fell to Str8 Rippin in a 3-2 nailbiter in the following round, ultimately taking a top twelve finish.
