Kyle "Nemassist" Kubina is an American player for Str8 Rippin, well known for his time on teams such as eLevate and Most Wanted.
At the Dallas Halo 4 exhibition, Nemassist finished in the top 32 as a member of DrkGangstaRappers alongside Absolutely, Koviet and Tensified. He then proceeded to finish in the top 6 at four straight AGL events - starting with AGL 3 Chicago as a member of G4C Cryptic alongside Gonna, PROVERB and Tie, followed by AGL 5 Nashville as a member of Pure alongside Tri, Platinum and SickStory. At AGL 6 Pittsburgh, Nemassist and SickStory joined Cratos and ShowTime on DGR ScarGang for another top 6 finish before yet another one at AGL 7 Knoxville with Cratos, LifeStyle and Shooter as G4C Crowd Pleasers. The top 6 streak was finally broken at AGL 8 Knoxville as Cryptic, made up of Nemassist, Suspector, Tragic and WinntuR finished in the top 8.
Nemassist started off Halo 2: Anniversary alongside Tragic, WinntuR and Nerdy on Scorched eSports. Despite an 8th place finish at IG Columbus, the team made a change, replacing Nerdy with Suspector and leaving Scorched for VwS Gaming. They finished top 12 at UGC St. Louis 2015. Weeks later, Nemassist and Suspector joined Velocity eSports alongside Cratos and eL ToWn. They finished in the top 12 at Gamers For Giving and failed to qualify for the Season Finals.
After replacing eL ToWn with LifeStyle, Velocity returned for Season 2 and started off strong with an 8th place finish at IG Atlanta. Unfortunately, the team did not work out and disbanded before the next event. Nemassist sat out the remainder of Halo 2: Anniversary.
Looking to qualify for the HaloWC NA Regional Finals, Nemassist joined Crowd Pleasers alongside Goofy, MuNoZ and Str8 SicK. The roster was soon signed by Team eLevate. Going into the Regional Finals as the 10th seed, eLevate failed to qualify for Halo World Championship 2016 after 3-0 losses to Counter Logic Gaming and Noble eSports.
Setting his sights on the Pro League after failing to qualify for Worlds, Nemassist joined Denial eSports alongside Arkanum, Seduce and the legendary OGRE2. The team finished 4th in their group at the Summer Qualifier, failing to qualify for Pro League. Nemassist then joined Soul eSports Red alongside Gabriel, King Nick and MuNoZ. With this team, Nemassist finished top 12 in the Last Chance Qualifier, again failing to qualify. With no more chances to qualify for the Summer Pro League, Nemassist then set his sights on qualifying for the Fall Season by joining Catastrophe alongside TriPPPeY, Renegade and Brainstorm. Three weeks into the season, Renegade left and was replaced by Vtec. The following week, TriPPPeY left the team and was replaced by Randa as the team was picked up by Team eLevate. The squad finished 2nd in the Open Circuit Finals, qualifying for Relegation. At Relegation, eLevate finished 4th after 4-0 losses to Team Liquid and OpTic Gaming.
Going into 2050 Chattanooga, Nemassist joined Weedmaps Gaming alongside BabyJ, Exemplify and King Nick. They finished top 6. Nemassist then formed The Chatt Shade Squad alongside fellow Chattanooga attendees BoamX, DasTroyed and Yiws for the Fall Season of the HCS Open Circuit. Yiws was replaced by LifeStyle as the team joined the Most Wanted organization. At ESA Orange County, Most Wanted took an impressive 4th place finish, nearly upsetting Team EnVyUs in the process. Near the end of the season, BoamX was replaced by Swift Kill. At the Open Circuit Finals in Vegas, Most Wanted finished top 6, failing to qualify for Relegation. They then finished top 12 in the main tournament. With RyaNoob replacing LifeStyle, Most Wanted competed in the first half of Esports Minor League's Fall 2016 season but disbanded midway through the season, forfeiting their place in the standings.
During the offseason, Nemassist joined a new team alongside Cratos, Naded and Str8 SicK. In a controversial "business decision", Cratos and Enigma6 manager Showtime managed to acquire the Enigma6 pro seed despite only one player and the manager being carried forward, marking Nemassist's entry into the Halo 5 pro scene. On January 16th, the team was signed by Pnda Gaming. The roster's first event together was UGC St. Louis 2017, where they finished in the top 12 after losses to SetToDestroyX and Luminosity Gaming. Late in January, Nemassist was released by Pnda Gaming. He ended up joining 3sUP alongside Rammyy, MoNsTcR and PreDevoNatoR. After a top 12 finish at ME Las Vegas, PreDevoNatoR was replaced by Claim for the Last Chance Qualifier, in which they finished top 6.
During the offseason, Nemassist joined up with RyaNoob, DasTroyed and ContrA, initially as TBD. The roster was acquired by Oxygen Supremacy shortly after forming. At UMG Daytona, Oxygen Supremacy went undefeated in the Open Bracket and made a splash early in the Championship Bracket, sweeping Luminosity Gaming and taking out Str8 Rippin in 4 games. In the Winners Semifinals, they narrowly lost to Team EnVyUs in 5 games before being eliminated by Splyce in the Losers Bracket for a top 6 finish.
