Max "Riotz" Cottle is an English player for The Lads. He is well known for his time with TCM Gaming and exceL eSports among other teams.


Riotz is a veteran of the European competitive Halo circuit, known to have competed as far back as 2010.

Halo 3

Halo 4

Halo 2: Anniversary

Halo 5

Riotz started off Halo 5 on Team Infused alongside Chalkie, Ramirez and TuFoxy, a team that had gone on somewhat of a dynasty run in Halo 2: Anniversary under the TCM Gaming banner. He eventually left the team and sat out the remainder of the UK HWC EMEA Regional Finals 2016 pre-qualifiers. He joined exceL eSports for the UK Last Chance Qualifier alongside Lunny, Snakey and CreepeazY. They were successful in winning the cup, earning a spot at Regionals. At Regionals, they finished 2nd, earning a spot in Halo World Championship 2016. At Worlds, exceL finished top 16.

After Worlds, Riotz found himself on Realist Tins alongside Ramirez, Speed and Lunny. The team qualified for the Summer 2016 Pro League at the last minute. After a poor start to the season, Speed was dropped and replaced with SeptiQ. The team joined SeptiQ's Team Vibe organization a short time later. After replacing Ramirez with Lunny, reuniting 3/4ths of the HWC exceL squad, the team improved in the standings and finished 4th overall, enough to qualify for the Season Finals. At Finals, they finished 3rd.

Riotz was released from Vibe during the off-season. After failing to find a spot on another Pro League team for the Fall season, Riotz joined The Unwanted alongside Doodle, Speed and WarLord for the Open Circuit. After four weeks of placing well in the Open Circuit, Riotz returned to the Pro League when he joined VwS Gaming alongside Ramirez, Chalkie and Lunny. VwS ultimately finished 5th in the standings and faced Relegation. At Relegation, they were defeated early by Egoed, but managed to defeat Prophecy and, in a rematch, Egoed to retain their pro status.

During the offseason, Lunny and Ramirez left VwS to join Team Vibe, leaving Riotz without a seed. On February 1st, he rejoined exceL eSports alongside Havoc, WarLord and CreepeazY. CreepeazY was quickly replaced by Flamez. At Gfinity London, exceL finished in the top 8, failing to qualify for Halo World Championship 2017. Riotz then left exceL to form Best Routers EU alongside Batchford, Quadios and Morguh. The new team finished 2nd in the Last Chance Qualifier, narrowly missing out on a Worlds spot.

Looking toward the Summer 2017 Pro League, Riotz left Best Routers EU to join the roster carrying the seed of the dominant FAB Games eSports, now known as The Lads, alongside Respectful, Mose and Lunny.
