One of Major League Gaming’s true success stories, GH057ayame’s career started rather quietly. Unable to find teammates of similar caliber, GH057 worked his way up the tournament scene, earning a reputation as a capable individual and team player. After a steady rise through the ranks, GH057ayame’s hard work culminated with an invitation to join the much-lauded Carbon.

He was proven to be Carbon’s missing element, as he aided the squad to the Orlando Championship Title in his first appearance with them. GH057ayame, one of the most aggressive players on the circuit, brought to the team a controlled charge that they previously lacked. As an adaptable team player, GH057 immediately meshed with his new comrades, yielding better strategies and team shooting. GH057ayame possesses tremendous reflexes and aim; skills which make him an effective free-for-all competitor as well as a frighteningly versatile opponent in team situations.


Career Highlights:
Beating Final Boss in Orlando ’06

Cars, women, hanging out with friends

People who cannot take jokes

Origin of Handle:
I didn’t come up with it—my twin brother did. When Xbox Live came out, he got it and made his account Ghost, but with numbers because he thought it was cool: GH057. Then he added Ayame on the end because it was a character in one of his favorite games, Tenchu. So, his account was GH057ayame. This was way before Halo 2 came out. We were just basically playing Counter-Strike. Once Halo 2 came out, we both played it, but I played it a lot more. He was more into Counter-Strike on the PC, and Diablo 2: LoD. So I mostly played on this account. After it expired, I renewed it because that’s how people knew me. I never expected so many people to ask me to change my name or say, “What does ‘ayame’ mean?” It’s so annoying.

First Competitive Gaming Memory:
A local New Jersey Halo tournament in March 2005; I went with a friend from school and two players from southern Jersey. We (me, SiK HyDRo, SiK HaZe, JMadMan5) thought we would have done amazingly, but Haze and JMad weren’t as skilled as me and HyDRo, so we lost the 4v4. However, I won the FFA, which everyone was astonished by because before that day, no one had beaten Se7eN VII at an NJHalo FFA. So I won a couple bucks out of that…
