Ivan "Flurriously" Ortega-Nguyen is an American Halo player for Desitic Gaming known for his time on Team Co-Op and Last Life as well as his appearances in the FFA Grand Finals throughout Halo 5: Guardians.
Ivan "Flurriously" Ortega-Nguyen is a Halo player that is from Crete, Nebraska. He has been competing since 2017 at his first event, Dreamhack Atlanta 2017 under "Team Co-Op". He began his eSports career at the age of 18. Flurriously is notorious for his Free-For-All (FFA) skills in Halo 5: Guardians. Ivan has qualified through the Grand Finals of every LAN event since Dreamhack Atlanta 2017, including Worlds 2018. This makes him one of the most consistent, talented FFA players on the Halo 5: Guardians circuit.
He actively participates within the 4v4 scene too and has teamed with other top amateur players such as Manny, Xrossfade, Blain Doctor, and Name. Flurriously has had a successful career so far across Halo 5: Guardians in 4v4s and FFA. Ivan also created additional success by participating in his local Halo community "Halo Nebraska". He works with these players in order to produce more Halo players from Nebraska to come out and show their talent to the world much like himself. Flurriously is also associated with the Degenerate, BCA, and Brothers community of Halo 5: Guardians.
Flurriously is currently a Halo player for Desitic Gaming also known as the #BrownWall. He has played for other teams including Last Life, Thicc Jawns Only, and Team Co-Op. These teams have placed fairly well on LAN but his achievements are shown primarily through his individual skill via FFA. During Halo 5: Guardians' life cycle, he has won multiple online and local tournaments. Examples include the July 2017 Team Beyond Premium FFA tournament, the ASTRO FFA tournament at DHATL 2017, and the Midwest Gaming Expo 2018 2v2 tournament. Flurriously was also a former Pro Battle League (PBL) player in 2018. His previous team, the "St. Louis Sentinels", placed 2nd in the second season of the PBL. Currently, he is apart of the Halo Draft League under Scarzz eSports where he hopes to find the same success. Ivan also streams on Twitch usually covering tournaments and wagers ($8s).
