Biography

Halo 2

Naded's career in Halo began at the beginning of the 2006 MLG Season, MLG New York. Alongside, Ramby, Poon and Legit he played for Storm Ventures, coming in 6th place at the competition, coming out of the open bracket at the event. Throughout the season, they finished within the top 8 on 4 separate occasions, with a high of 2nd at MLG Chicago 2006. They then went onto finish 6th in the MLG New York Playoffs 2006. They were ultimately knocked out of both the losers and winners bracket at MLG Las Vegas Championships 2006.

Storm Ventures broke up during the 2006 offseason, with Naded and Legit joining the high-profile Str8 Rippin alongside Tsquared and Foulacy. After a 5th place finish at Charlotte, Naded and Legit left Str8 Rippin, because of how low they placed with such a high calibre team.

Naded and Legit then reunited with Ramby to form Perfect Storm alongside newcomer Xtrem1st. The new squad had a strong 3rd place finish at MLG Meadowlands 2007, but followed it up with a 6th place finish at the following event in MLG Dallas 2007, leading to Naded leaving the team to join The Agency alongside Mackeo, Victory X and SK.

With the Agency, Naded took another 3rd place finish at MLG Chicago 2007, but would not see anything higher as he would finish the season with a 5th place at MLG Orlando 2007 and 4th at the MLG Las Vegas Championships 2007. Naded also attended the MLG Canadian Open 2007 as a member of The Agency coming in third position.

Halo 3

During the era of Halo 3, Naded started on a new team along with TiZoXiC, Severince and Wooooly. At the kickoff event in the Meadowlands, Naded lead this new team to 8th place. The team placed 8th once again with Foulacy replacing Wooooly on the roster in the following San Diego event.

Naded then went on and joined Classic, a team looking to bounce back after a short performance at the previous event. The Classic roster now consisted of Naded, Soldi3r187, AnT and Legend. Sadly, the team's only run placed 10th at the following Orlando event.

Naded then joined Legends alongside Defy, Best Man and Gandhi. Naded's team placed 10th in Toronto. Naded then decided to move onto a new team, Carbon. This time, he teamed up with Cpt Anarchy, GH057ayame and ShockWave to place 7th at Dallas. Carbon returned to compete in the Las Vegas National Championships to secure 3rd place - the highest for Naded and the Carbon roster for the season.

Naded once again formed a new team with Defy, Best Man and Karma to form, VG The New Order. Due to chemistry issues the team finished 9th place at the Meadowlands season opener. After Best Man and Defy left, Naded looked to bring in two amateur players, mirroring his decision with Storm Ventures and Fatal Images. Naded and Karma picked up Ten0r and Tetra Shot. However, the roster failed to make it out of open brackets at Columbus. Naded then returned to the Carbon roster playing with Shockwave, Defy and Walshy. This new Carbon line up were the fan favorites. They took out top legendary teams such as Final Boss, Str8 Rippin and Instinct. However, Naded would not find an event win on this roster placing 2nd in the season then two 3rd place finishes back to back.

Naded started the 2010 season with a new team, Heaven and Earth, with a roster of Clutch, Karma and KillerDrew. Disappointingly, the new team placed 9th in the season kickoff at Orlando. Naded returned to Carbon shortly after; joining a roster consisting of Defy, Best Man and Walshy. Shockwave retiring in the 2009 offseason impacted Carbon's performance. Carbon finished 6th at Columbus. Carbon finished 13th in Raleigh. Naded and Defy left to return to the Str8 Rippin roster playing alongside GH057ayame and Tsquared. The roster competed at D.C. finising 9th but failed to qualify for the Dallas National Championships.

Halo: Reach

Since Naded couldn't compete in the Halo 3 National Championships, he teamed up with Karma and KillerDrew to rebuild Perfect Storm. The team finished 9th at the Reach Exhibition. Naded and Legit added onto Darkest Hour with Twylight and Goofy to compete in Dallas where they finished 14th. They left shortly after to rejoin Str8 Rippin with Tsquared and Ryanoob.

At the Columbus event, they made an impressive run, placing 2nd and only losing to the legendary Instinct "God Squad" roster. Even after having a great performance on this roster, Tsquared and Legit left the team to reunite with the original Str8 Rippin lineup.

Naded then joined Triggers Down playing alongside Hysteria, Amish Acorns and SK, finishing 15th at Anaheim He moved on to play for THO Evil with Crimsix, Twin Savior and Goofy for Raleigh where they would finish 7th. Lastly, he joined Turning Point consisting fan- favorite line up consisting of Ninja, Mikwen and Walshy.Turning Point would end the season with 9th at Orlando and 12th at Providence National Championships.

Naded only attended one more event during the Halo 4 era, AGL 8 Knoxville. He joined Lethul, Goofy and Ryanoob to form a roster under Infamous.
