James "Jimbo" Bradbrook is an English player for Invictus. He is well known for his time with FAB Games eSports and Epsilon eSports.

Biography

Halo 4

Jimbo began his competitive Halo career in Halo 4, placing 8th at EGL 9 Blackpool as a member of VYE Intensity alongside Kalpol, Kritical and Thumble. He then joined team Outbreak alongside Smithy, Snipedrone and Adamack, beating MGS in the Grand Finals at Multiplay Insomnia 49 and taking 1st place at only his second event. At Insomnia 50, Jimbo and fellow UK player SeptiQ teamed up with Red Bull-sponsored Americans Enable and Flamesword as eQ Status Quo. They took 1st place at the event, beating High Society by a dominating score of 6-2 in the finals.

Halo 3 Revival

In mid-2014, Halo 3 experienced a competitive revival in Europe. Jimbo teamed up with Az, Slinky and Valadan for the Halo 3 European Championship as A4D, placing 3rd overall. Jimbo and A4D returned at Insomnia 52, where they placed 4th.

Halo 2: Anniversary

Jimbo reunited with Smithy and Adamack to start off H2A, recruiting the veteran Lethal to fill out the roster under the Total eSports Circuit banner. They placed 4th at Insomnia 53. The TeC roster returned at the Gfinity Halo 2: Anniversary LAN Championship, this time placing top 6. The team broke up shortly after, and Jimbo joined Epsilon eSports alongside Snipedrone, BUK 20 and Reaction. Hoping to qualify for the North American HCS Season 1 Finals by winning EGL Battle of Europe 2015, the top seeded team fell short of their goal, placing 3rd. Reaction was then replaced by BUK 57, and the team attended Insomnia 54, where they placed 3rd. While the Halo 2: Anniversary circuit was still active in Europe, Epsilon were invited to the Gamescom Invitational 2015 Halo 5 showcase event, where they placed 1st. Returning to H2A for Insomnia 55, Epsilon closed the game out with a 1st place finish.

Halo 5: Guardians

Jimbo and Epsilon stuck together going into the Halo World Championship 2016 qualifier series. They took 1st place at the UK Finals, qualifying for the EMEA Regional Finals. A short time later, Epsilon appeared at the X Games Aspen 2016 exhibition event as one of two invited European teams. Though they were able to upset the American Renegades squad, they ultimately failed to emerge from their pool and finished top 8. At the EMEA Regionals, Epsilon were upset in the Semifinals by Team Infused, but still placed top 4, a strong enough placing to qualify for Worlds. At Worlds, Epsilon turned heads by once again upsetting an American team in Pool Play - this time Cloud9. They amplified this in their next match against the dominant Counter Logic Gaming squad, who were favored to and would go on to win the event. They managed to take a game off the juggernaut squad and remained competitive in their three lost maps, proving that they could hang with the best in the world. They emerged from their pool as the only non-American team to make the Championship Bracket, where they lost to Team eLevate in the Quarterfinals and went home with a top 8 finish.

Shortly after Worlds, Jimbo announced the dissolving of the Epsilon roster, forming XMEN alongside Snipedrone, TuFoxy and Chalkie. They qualified for the Summer 2016 Pro League shortly after. Midway through the Pro League season, TuFoxy left the struggling X-Men to join the 1st place U4X eSports. He was replaced by Ramirez. X-Men were just able to get into the Season Finals, posting a 5-5 record. At the event, they outplaced their ranking, taking 2nd place overall.

After the conclusion of the season, FAB made a roster change, swapping out Kimbo for Jimbo. Over the course of the Fall Season, FAB continued to dominate, though they did drop a single series to Team Infused. They ultimately finished 9-1, good enough for their second straight 1st place finish. Two weeks later, FAB was in America competing at ME Las Vegas. With wins over 6S Gaming and Pnda Gaming and losses to only Team Liquid and Str8 Rippin, FAB proved they could hang in America as they took a top 8 finish at the event. Back in Europe, FAB went into the Season Finals looking to repeat as champions. They did so in dominant fashion, not dropping a single game as they dismantled PuLse Gaming and Team Infused (twice) to stake their claim in Halo history.

FAB's next task in the Halo Championship Series was qualifying for Halo World Championship 2017, and they'd need a top 2 finish at Gfinity London 2017 to do it. They did so in commanding fashion, dropping games to only Team Infused and Supremacy en route to another 1st place finish. At Worlds, FAB were placed in a group with Str8 Rippin and Shock The World. They 3-0d StW, but were unable to take more than a game from Str8, finishing 2nd in the pool. In the Championship Bracket, FAB were first 4-0d by reigning champions OpTic Gaming. They then swept Team Immunity in a best-of-EU vs. best-of-ANZ match-up. In the following round, they were matched up against Splyce, who defeated them 4-1 and sent them home with a top 8 finish.

Looking toward the Summer 2017 Pro League, Jimbo left FAB to join Invictus (the team which formerly competed under London Conspiracy) alongside Qristola, Ramirez and Snipedrone following the retirement of TuFoxy.
