Hai "Hai" Du Lam is the mid laner for Cloud9 Challenger.

Biography

Hai Lam comes from Grandville, Michigan and graduated from Grandville Highschool. During his high school life, Hai was an active participant in the Counter Strike community, and enjoyed many Warcraft III custom games along with climbing the ladder.

Hai moved to East Lansing, Michigan, after completing high school in pursuit of a degree in Media Arts and Technology at Michigan State University. He was a prominent member of the League of Legends club on campus.

With the end of the Spring 2012 semester, Hai hit 2500 elo and a top 5 position on the Solo Queue ladder. Using his new-found influence, he was able to gather a team of his own to create No Fear.

Orbit Gaming

On May 25th, 2012, Orbit Gaming announced the acquisition of the roster form Hai's nFear Gaming.

Afterward, Orbit placed 7th/8th at the 2012 MLG - Spring Championship. At the Spring Championship, Orbit defeated vVv Gaming 2-0 in the first round, but lost 1-2 to Counter Logic Gaming Prime in the second round which placed them in the loser's bracket. In the loser's bracket, Orbit defeated Redact 2-0, Team Legion 2-0, and Team SoloMid Evo 2-0. They eventually lost to Counter Logic Gaming EU 1-2 in the fifth round of the loser's bracket.

On June 30th, 2012, Orbit Gaming competed in the Leaguepedia North American Invitational. In the two day online tournament, they were able to finish in first place, most notably defeating Curse Gaming 2-1 in the quarterfinals and sweeping Team Dynamic 2-0 in the finals. On August 26th, Orbit took fourth place at the 2012 MLG Summer Championship, losing to Dynamic 1-2 in the third place match. This led to a tie with Monomaniac Ferus for eighth place in the North American Season Two Circuit Rankings. To decide the last spot for Season Two Regional Finals Seattle, a best of three tiebreaker match was held. Orbit lost 0-2 to mMe and was denied a spot at the North American Regionals.

Quantic Gaming

With the tournament being done, on November 12th, 2012, Hai left Orbit Gaming and joined Quantic Gaming, along with teammates Nientonsoh, LemonNation, WildTurtle, and Yazuki.

This was short lived as Quantic Gaming disbanded due to lack of resources to support the team.

Hai later rejoins Quantic Gaming on Febuary 1st, 2013. He leads the team as they qualify for the Summer Season of the NA LCS.

Cloud9

Competing under the name "Team NomNom" and then Cloud9, Nientonsoh, Hai, Yazuki, Wild Turtle and LemonNation would secure a spot in the Season 3 North American Offline Qualifier for the League of Legends Championship Series. However, Cloud9 would be knocked out of the tournament in the group stage after losing to Team MRN and Azure Gaming.

Initially, Nientonsoh said that Cloud9 would disband in light of the loss. The team later decided to stay together, although Nientonsoh and Yazuki would leave the team and a massive roster swap would ensue. Hai shifted from jungle to mid, and new junglers and top laners were actively being tried out in online competitions. With their final roster of Balls, Meteos, Hai, LemonNation, and SnEaKyCaStRoO finally being set, the team set out to qualify for the NA LCS.

Next Stop: LCS

On Febuary 1st, 2013 Quantic Gaming reforms. Shortly after on April 6th, 2013, Quantic's Roster was set with: Balls, Meteos, Hai, LemonNation, and SnEaKyCaStRoO.

On May 11th, 2013, Quantic qualified for the Summer Season of the NA LCS after cruising past Complexity 3-0 in the promotion tournament finals to earn their LCS spot. However, it would end up being the last game they played for Quantic, as Cloud9 resurfaced and re-acquired the team ahead of its LCS debut against Team Dignitas. Hai played

 Orianna - after Scarra had just competed at All-Star 2013 as North America's mid-laner - en route to a 3/3/3 performance in a debut win. Cloud9 went on to become the first non-founding LCS team to become champions in their rookie split - a feat that is still yet to be replicated - they went on to make the quarterfinals of the 2013 World Championship.

2015 Preseason

Cloud9 was the North American team fan-voted to IEM San Jose.[1] They defeated paiN Gaming 2-0, Alliance 2-1, and then Unicorns of Love 3-0 to win the tournament.

2015 Season

Due to their IEM San Jose victory, Cloud9 qualified for IEM Katowice in March. They lost their only two games, first to GE Tigers and then to yoe Flash Wolves, and finished in 7th/8th place. Domestically, they underperformed at the start of the season, and were in 8th place at the end of the second week of the spring LCS split. However, they improved over the course of the season, ending with a second-place finish behind Team SoloMid and a playoff bye; after beating Team Liquid 3-2, Cloud9 lost to TSM 1-3 in the finals and finished the split overall in second place.

A few days later, he announced his retirement from professional League of Legends. He cited his wrist injuries and the fact that his support carry playstyle was not viable anymore as reasons for his retirement. He would continue to be a part of the Cloud9 organization in an administrative position as Chief Gaming Officer.[2] However, when Cloud9's Summer Split record was 3-7 after the first five weeks, and they were tied for 7th place with Team 8 and Enemy, Hai returned to competitive play, but switching from mid lane to jungle and replacing Meteos. Cloud9's record for the remainder of the split was 3-5, which was enough to place them in 7th after a tie-breaker victory over Team 8; they avoided relegations and retained their Championship Points, though they did not qualify for playoffs. In the Regional Finals Gauntlet, Cloud9 reverse-swept both Gravity Gaming and Team Impulse before beating Team Liquid 3-1 in the finals. Their fourteen games played over the course of three days gave them North America's third seed to the 2015 Season World Championship, Cloud9's third-consecutive Worlds.

Considered an underdog at Worlds, Cloud9 were placed into Group B along with Fnatic, ahq, and Invictus Gaming and expected to place last. Instead, they surprised with an undefeated 3-0 first week, with Hai suddenly performing well on Lee Sin. In the second week, Cloud9 needed only one win to advance to the quarterfinals but were unable to find it, losing four games in a row including a tiebreaker loss to ahq. They placed third in their group, ahead of only Invictus Gaming.

2016 Season

For the 2016 season, Cloud9 added two new players - Rush and Bunny FuFuu - and moved Hai to support, with the intention of splitting time with Bunny. However, after two losses with Bunny and two wins with Hai in the spring split, they committed to starting Hai fulltime and rose to a 67% winrate, with a third-place seed in the playoffs. However, despite a seeding advantage, the team lost to TSM in the first round and were eliminated.
