Halo History

Halo 2: Anniversary

HCS Season 1

Team eLevate did not attend Iron Games Columbus. Their first event for season 1 was UGC St. Louis, with a roster of Gabriel, MuNoZ, Shaffer and Spartan formerly of Fatal Ambition. They took 7th at the event.

eLevate played in three more HCS Cups with the same roster, placing 4th, top 8, and top 16. They then announced that Shooter, formerly of Noble Reality Check, was replacing Shaffer. eLevate then placed top 8 in HCS Cup #6. Following this, coach TiberiusAudley left and was replaced by Elitest. eLevate again placed top 8 in HCS Cup #7.

At Gamers For Giving, eLevate was ousted from the Winners Bracket in Round 4 by Denial eSports, in a 3-0 sweep. eLevate made a bit of a run through the Losers Bracket, defeating eX Black 3-0, and sweeping Legendary 3-0 in the next round. They then faced Counter Logic Gaming in Round 7, and were defeated 3-0. In the 5-6 consolation round, they were again defeated by Denial, ending their tournament with a 5th placing.

eLevate entered the HCS Season 1 Finals at PAX East as the 7th seed. Their first match in WB was against the 2nd seeded Counter Logic Gaming. CLG won the series 3-0. eLevate then faced off against Str8 Rippin in the Losers Bracket, and were defeated 3-1, ending their tournament and their season with a 7-8th place finish.

eLevate's average LAN placing in HCS Season 1 was 6.83. Their total winnings amounted to $2,550.

HCS Season 2

On March 15, 2015, Spartan announced his free agency on Twitter[1], confirming that he had left eLevate. On March 30, eLevate announced that they had acquired Cory "Str8 SicK" Sloss, formerly of Str8 Rippin.[2] At Iron Games Atlanta 2015, the new eLevate roster, seeded 4th after online success, was first upset by eXcellence in the winners' bracket before being eliminated in the losers' bracket by Velocity for a top 12 finish.[3] On April 25th, Gabriel confirmed that the eLevate Halo roster was disbanding.[4] On April 30th, eLevate announced the release of former roster members Shooter and Spartan from their contracts.[5]

Halo 5

Halo World Championship 2016

On August 22, 2015, eLevate announced their return to Halo with a roster of Dillon "Randa" Randa, Ayden "Suspector" Hill, Bradley "iTz So Frosty" Bergstrom and Kevin "UnLegit" Smith.[6] However, on November 16th, UnLegit left the team to join Team Liquid, leaving eLevate short one player.[7] UnLegit was replaced on November 28th with the addition of a returning MuNoZ.[8] On December 2nd, the eLevate roster suffered another blow with the departure of Frosty to Counter Logic Gaming.[9] The team suffered yet another blow on December 6th with the departure of Suspector to Allegiance eSports, leaving Randa and MuNoZ the only remaining members.[10] On December 29th, eLevate announced their new roster, consisting of Munoz, Faisal "Goofy" Khan, Kyle "Nemassist" Kubina and a returning Str8 SicK, as well as coach Brian "SixTen" Russell.[11]

The eLevate roster managed to qualify for the HWC 2016 NA Regional Finals as the 10th seed. At Regionals, eLevate went 1-2 in their pool, losing to Counter Logic Gaming and Noble eSports and beating only OverDrive. Thus, they finished top 16 and did not qualify for Halo World Championship 2016. On March 2nd, eLevate announced the sidelining of its Regionals roster, and the acquisition of the former Noble eSports roster of Tim "Rayne" Tinkler, Zane "Penguin" Hearon, Tyler "Calm" Mozingo and Alex "Swift Kill" Ramirez. At Worlds, eLevate finished 1st in the group, defeating Denial eSports 3-0 in the process. In the quarterfinals, eLevate defeated Epsilon eSports 3-0 before meeting Team Allegiance in the semifinals. Allegiance defeated eLevate 4-2, ending their night with a top 4 finish and taking home $250,000.

Pro League/Open Circuit

On April 8th, Team EnVyUs announced the acquisition of Rayne.[12] On April 14th, the eLevate roster took another hit, as Penguin left to join Renegades.[13] On April 22nd, Goofy became the first member of the HWC Regionals roster to officially leave the organization, joining Team Allegiance.[14] Days later, Str8 SicK became the next member to leave, announcing that he had joined OpTic Gaming.[15] Munoz was the next to go, joining Soul eSports Red.[16] On April 29th, eLevate announced the signing of a new team, consisting of Jacob "Hysteria" Reiser, Richie "Heinz" Heinz, Jr., Dillon "Randa" Randa and Mason "Aries" Miller.[17] The next day, the new eLevate roster failed to qualify for the Pro League Summer Qualifier, meaning they would have to get into the Pro League through the Last Chance Qualifier. Between the two tournaments, eLevate replaced Aries and Hysteria with Dan "Danoxide" Terlizzi and a returning Swift Kill. With only two Pro League spots available in the LCQ, standing in eLevate's way were the heavily favored Team Liquid and OpTic Gaming. eLevate advanced out of their pool despite a close loss to OpTic, but were defeated in their first chance to qualify in the Winners' Bracket by Team Liquid by a score of 4-2. In their final chance to qualify against OpTic Gaming, eLevate were again defeated 4-2, ending their Pro League hopes. Following their failure to qualify for Pro League, eLevate quietly let Swift Kill go and replaced him with Michael "Falcated" Garcia as they began competing in the Open Circuit. After nearly half of the Open Circuit season, Danoxide left the team, as he was acquired by Pro League team Team Liquid. This left a hole in eLevate's roster which was quickly filled by Jonathan "Renegade JW" W. After another week of competition, eLevate's roster suffered another blow, as Heinz was acquired by Pro League team Team Allegiance.[18] With Falcated's subsequent departure to join French Toast Mafia, eLevate lost its points and Renegade left the organization as well. With the only remaining member, Randa, being picked up by Catastrophe, the team featuring a roster of Randa, Tristan "BrainStrms" Gurudeo, Kyle "Nemassist" Kubina and Nick "V t3ct9" began competing under the eLevate name. The team ended up finishing 2nd in the Open Circuit Finals, enough to qualify for Relegation and a chance at a Pro League spot. At the Relegation event, eLevate went winless, losing 4-0 to both Team Liquid and OpTic Gaming and missing out on a Pro League spot.

During the offseason, eLevate revamped its roster, keeping only Randa and bringing a returning Aries, Tyler "TireIron" Mara and Hunter "BabyJ" Schline on board. The new roster went into the Fall 2016 Open Circuit as a potential top team. On September 27th, shortly after the start of the season, the eLevate roster was acquired by MoneyMatches.[19]
