Nien8 | LoL Esports
As one of the best farmers in both solo queue and the competitive scene, Zach "Nien" Malhas's strong mechanical skill can be attributed in part to his previous experience as a highly ranked Heroes of Newerth player. A credit to his prowess as an AD Carry, Nien was the first player in Season 3 to break 1000 League Points in the Challenger Tier. During the Spring Split of the LCS, Nien left his position as Mid Laner for Cloud 9 to become the AD Carry for Team MRN.
For the 2013 summer split, he again transitioned both teams and roles in his movement to top lane for Counter Logic Gaming. After the 2014 NA LCS Spring Split, Nien decided that his performance was unsatisfactory, and stepped into a substitute role with CLG while vowing to hone his skills. Nien returned to the competitive scene in 2015 as a starting AD Carry for Team 8.
