Hamza "Commonly" Abbaali is an American player for eRa Eternity. He is most well known for his brief time with Evil Geniuses, with whom he won an X Games gold medal, Renegades, and Team Liquid.


Hamza Abbaali was born on April 27, 1997. He is from California.

Halo: Reach

Commonly's first Halo event was the MLG Winter Championship 2012, where he finished in the top 48 as a member of Evolution alongside Life Alert, Bitanga and cipher.

Halo 5: Guardians

Commonly returned to Halo competition in 2015, competing at Iron Games Daytona 2015 as a member of The Aquarium alongside ROB THE TURTLE, bubu dubu and Exemplify. The team finished 4th place, outplacing some established veteran teams. Commonly spent the first four Halo World Championship 2016 NA Qualifier tournaments on team Leftovers alongside a combination of Spartan, Cloud, Hysteria, Victory X and Ninja. After the 4th qualifier, Leftovers were the 4th highest seeded team. On December 21st, a shockwave was sent through the NA scene as Lethul left Evil Geniuses to join Counter Logic Gaming. Commonly was recruited by Evil Geniuses as their new fourth. Days later, Commonly attended his first event as a member of Evil Geniuses - the X Games Aspen 2016 invitational. Commonly helped EG continue their live event winning streak as they defeated Lethul and CLG in the finals. Unfortunately for Commonly and EG, this streak would come to an end at the HWC NA Regional Finals 2016, where CLG would defeat EG 4-0 in the semifinals. Fortunately though, Commonly and the EG squad's performance was enough to earn them a spot in the Halo World Championship. Drawn into Group B, Commonly and EG faced a tough 3-2 loss against Renegades. The squad swept the remaining teams in the group to advance to bracket play, showing little to no emotion in the process. They had an unfortunate first-round draw, faced with the tough task of defeating the powerhouse CLG squad. CLG ultimately took the series 3-0, ending Commonly and EG's tournament with a top 8 finish and a $75,000 prize.

Days after Worlds, Commonly was released by EG to make room for the acquisition of Suspector. In the following weeks, he joined Renegades alongside Ninja, Victory X and Penguin. This roster qualified for the Summer Pro League with a 2nd place finish in their group at the Summer Qualifier. At the conclusion of the season, Renegades sat at 4th place in the standings, good enough to qualify for the Season Finals. On July 25th, Commonly and the rest of the Renegades roster departed to join Cloud9. At the Season Finals, C9 finished 4th, taking home $15,000.

During the off-season, the 4th place roster dropped Ninja and Victory X, replacing them with Spartan and Rayne. This new roster was acquired by Spartan's previous org, Team Liquid. After a 3-3 start to the Fall Pro League season, Liquid attended HCS Orange County 2016, where they finished 3rd. Liquid ended up finishing the season with a 7-7 record, good enough for 3rd place. Weeks later, Team Liquid attended HCS Las Vegas 2016, where they nearly took 1st, defeating Team EnVyUs in the Winners Finals before EnVy came back to take two consecutive series and steal the event from Liquid. At the Season Finals, Liquid were only able to win against Str8 Rippin and placed 3rd out of the four teams in attendance.

On December 29th, during the offseason, Spartan and Commonly left Team Liquid and joined the newly formed Problem Solvers alongside Danoxide and Suspector. On January 13th, the Problem Solvers roster was acquired by Team Allegiance. The new roster's first event together was UGC St. Louis 2017, where they battled out of the Open Bracket to finish top 8. After UGC, Allegiance dropped Danoxide and replaced him with TriPPPeY for ME Las Vegas 2017. In Vegas, Allegiance placed top 8, narrowly missing out on Halo World Championship 2017 qualification after a 4-2 loss to Danoxide's new team - Pnda Gaming. They followed this up with a 3rd place finish in the Last Chance Qualifier and missed out on Worlds.

During the offseason, Commonly joined Team Randa alongside Randa, Prototype and BabyJ. The team was quickly signed by eRa Eternity. At UMG Daytona, eRa finished in the top 12 after losses to Evil Geniuses and Str8 Rippin.


  • After being infamously dropped from Evil Geniuses following their top 8 finish at Halo World Championship 2016, a debate rose among the community in regards to whether or not he was "the problem" on said roster. Commonly being or not being "the problem" is now a popular meme among the Halo community.
