Biography

Tyler Blevins was born on June 5, 1991. He is from Lake Villa, Illinois.

Halo 3

Ninja began his professional career by attending MLG Orlando 2009 as a member of Four of a Kind, alongside Aye Rab, Mac and Nate. He would then go on to place 26th in Anaheim on team Second Nature with teammates DGK_Acid, Sauccy and Ownag3. He placed top 64 in Columbus before heading to MLG Dallas 2010 as a member of Zekkou White where he finished 13th with Ali, Trip and Venom. He would also attend Columbus that year, this time placing 25th with Second Nature consisting of himself Goatsii, Rowan and Masssta.

Halo: Reach

His career began to thrive during Reach, with no placements outside of the top 16. First he attended MLG Dallas 2011 as a member of Invictus, finishing in 12th alongside Calm, Swift Kill and Watch. From there he would join Final Boss for Columbus, where he would finish in 5th with Totz, Fearitself and Victory X. He would find a home on Turning Point for the next few events, along with Mikwen and Walshy. They attended Anaheim with Best Man rounding out the roster and secured a 7th place finish. Best Man was then swapped for Adrenaline before Raleigh and the team finished in 9th. Adrenaline would be switched with Naded for Orlando and Providence where they would finish in 9th and 12th respectively. He and Mikwen then departed for Str8 Rippin to team with Strongside and Tsquared for Columbus where the group finished 13th-16th.

Halo 4

Ninja won his first professional tournament at the end of 2012, taking 1st at The Halo 4 Exhibition as a member of Warriors, with Goofy, Legit and Ryanoob. In 2013 the team would attend AGL Chicago and AGL 5 Nashville with the same roster finishing 2nd both times. He then proceeded to win AGL6 Pittsburgh as a member of the G4C Misfits, alongside Snip3down, Proverb and A Pure Gangster. He would rejoin Warriors for UMG Chicago, this time with A Pure Gangster replacing Ryanoob, netting him a 3rd place finish which was his worst finish in all of Halo 4. He would win his last event, AGL8 Knoxville alongside Legit, Ace and Derksy as a member of Team Requiem.

Halo 2: Anniversary

Ninja competed at the ESL MCC Launch Invitational as a member of The Agency where he finished 5th/6th with Hysteria, FearitSelf and Victory X. The Agency was picked up by Cloud9 at the start of the HCS Season. Since then they competed in the pre-season online cup, finishing 2nd and top 16 in the first online cup of the season. The team placed 4th at Iron Games Columbus 2014, 5th at UGC St. Louis 2015 and 4th again at Gamers For Giving 2015. They went into the season finals at PAX East 2015 as the #5 seed and again placed 4th.

Ninja was officially released from Cloud9 on March 18.[1] It was announced on March 28 that he had joined Noble Black alongside Arkanum, Aries and Prototype.[2] At Iron Games Atlanta 2015, Noble Black finished in 7th, losing to Velocity and Winterfox and beating Velocity in the consolation round. Noble announced the departure of Ninja two days later.[3] Ninja then formed a new team with Aries, Spartan and Shooter, first competing as The Other Guys before being picked up by Team Liquid.[4] Ninja and Team Liquid finished 7th at their first event together, HCS Indianapolis. They followed up with a top 8 finish at the HCS Season 2 Finals.

Halo 5: Guardians

During the offseason, Team Liquid made changes to its roster, replacing Aries, Shooter and Spartan with Ace, UnLegit and Chig. Chig left after the first qualifier cup and was replaced by Hysteria. After the third cup, Ninja was released from Team Liquid. He eventually found himself on a Renegades roster alongside Spartan, Victory X and StelluR, after many team changes in a short time period. Renegades' first event was the X Games Aspen 2016 invitational, where they finished 4th. Following the X Games, Renegades successfully qualified for NA Regionals and finished top 8, good enough to qualify for Halo World Championship 2016. At Worlds, Renegades finished top 8, taking home $25,000.

Following Worlds, Renegades made roster changes, with StelluR and Spartan being replaced by Commonly and Penguin. This roster qualified for the Summer Pro League with a 2nd place finish in their group at the Summer Qualifier. At the conclusion of the season, Renegades sat at 4th place in the standings, good enough to qualify for the Season Finals. On July 25th, Ninja and the rest of the Renegades roster departed to join Cloud9, marking Tyler's second stint with the organization. At the Season Finals, C9 finished 4th, taking home $15,000. Ninja and Victory were dropped from Cloud9 shortly after the Finals, and eventually joined Evil Geniuses alongside Roy and Lunchbox. EG started the Fall Season off strong, defeating the dominant OpTic Gaming squad in Week 1, but ran into resistance in Week 3, losing two straight 0-3 series. This resulted in Victory X being dropped from the team and replaced by StelluR. EG attended UGC St. Louis 2016 with StelluR on board, placing 3rd. Returning to the Pro League season, the new roster lost six straight matches, only managing to win their last two on Week 7, finishing with a 5-9 record just good enough to take 6th place and avoid Relegation. At ME Las Vegas, EG finished top 6 after wins over Most Wanted and Enigma6 and 3-2 losses to Team EnVyUs and Str8 Rippin.

During the offseason, Ninja left Evil Geniuses, eventually joining Luminosity Gaming alongside Victory X, eL TowN and TriPPPeY. At the new roster's first event together - UGC St. Louis 2017 - they placed in the top 8. After UGC, Luminosity replaced TriPPPeY with Saiyan. At ME Las Vegas 2017, Luminosity managed to qualify for Halo World Championship 2017 after a 4-1 victory over Splyce. They ultimately finished in the top 6 after a loss to Team EnVyUs. At Worlds, Luminosity were placed in a pool with London Conspiracy and Team Liquid. They finished below Liquid following a 3-0 loss and emerged in the Winners Bracket with a match against Splyce. Luminosity took the heated contest 4-3 and moved into the jaws of OpTic Gaming, who swept them out of the bracket. In Losers, Luminosity were swept by the eventual second place finishers in Team EnVyUs and went home with a top 6 finish.

After Worlds, Luminosity made a team change, replacing eL ToWn with a returning TriPPPeY. At UMG Daytona, Luminosity finished 2nd in its pool. In the Championship Bracket, they were upset early by Oxygen Supremacy in a 3-0 sweep. They managed to eliminate Believe the Hype and Evil Geniuses before bowing out to Splyce for a top 8 finish.
