Velocity eSports is a North American esports organization. The team was founded by Matthew "RESTACKZ" Sim in 2014 and currently owned by Carter Musgrave.

History

HCS Season 1

Velocity did not attend Iron Games Columbus. Their first event for season 1 was UGC St. Louis, with a roster of James "Arbin" Cooke, Rob "RobTheTurtle" O' Connor, Brad "CreepyTrash" McKee and Chance "MoNsTcR" Duncan. They took top 16 at the event.

Velocity released CreepyTrash for Visal "eL TowN" Monnahan and played in two HCS Cups, placing top 16, and top 8. They then announced that MoNsTcR had been released for Chris "Blaze" Chapon. Within one week of the new roster practicing, Blaze was released and replaced by Ayden "Suspector" Hill. Following this, Arbin and RobTheTurtle were released and they were replaced by Carlos "Cratos" Ayala and Kyle "Nemassist" Kubina.

At Gamers For Giving 2015, Velocity faced off against 8th seeded Noble Black in their second round match. They were defeated 2-0, sending them to the Losers Bracket early. In the Losers Bracket, Velocity managed three straight sweeps against Goats R Us, iSo Essence, and Scorched Halo, securing themselves a top 12 placing. They then faced off against the 5th seeded Cloud9 for top 8. During a close standoff on Shrine, the team used a unique boost to get on top of their base which got a lot of attention in the Halo community. Velocity would be swept 3-0 in the series to finish top 12. Despite the impressive showing, it was not enough to earn Velocity a top 8 seed, so their season ended at Gamers For Giving.

HCS Season 2

Following Gamers For Giving, eL TowN expressed displeasure on social media regarding his teammates, leading to his removal from Velocity. Shortly after TowN's departure, Velocity announced the signing of Bradley "iTz So Frosty" Bergstrom. However, this would not last, as they soon after replaced Frosty with Garrett "Lifestyle" Miller. They soon placed top 16 in both of the preseason cups, earning themselves the 10th seed. At Iron Games Atlanta 2015, Velocity started off strong, upsetting Noble Black 2-1 before being swept 3-0 by Evil Geniuses. In the losers bracket, they swept eLevate 3-0 and were swept 3-0 by Cloud9. They lost to Noble Black in a consolation rematch to end their tournament with an 8th placing.[1] The following week, it was announced that Velocity's Halo team had left the organization, and that Velocity was seeking a new team to sponsor.[2] On April 26th, Velocity acquired the former End Result roster of Kyle "Krizen" Smithers, Oguz "Burton" Ustuntas and Kevin "DARKscorpion" Garcia. This was short-lived however, as the roster disbanded soon after forming. On May 14th, Velocity announced a new roster including a returning Burton as captain, alongside former SyA members Justin "Calm Mentality" Mozingo, Jer "JeRawockee" Pac and Chris "Blaze" Chapon, as well as former Noble Black coach Justin "YosH" Theriault. As Velocity did not acquire SyA seedholder Dewbron, they do not retain SyA's HCS points and seed. On June 17th, Matthew "RESTACKZ" Sim retires and Burton, Calm Mentality, JeRawockee, Blaze and YosH leave.

Halo World Championship

On November 1st, Carter Musgrave takes ownership of Velocity eSports in search of a new Halo roster to represent Velocity in the Halo World Championship event. On November 18th, Shane "Posey xR" Posey, Tony "Eccentrik" Garofalo, Cody "JuicyFruit" Brock, and Tyler "TireIron" Mara join. December 13th, Eccentrik is released and replaced with Ezekiel "Prototype" Martinez. December 15th, Velocity decides to release their full roster of Posey xR, Prototype, JuicyFruit, and TireIron for disclosed reasons. On January 6th, Velocity announced a new roster on Twitter consisting of "Levy","Scaryotic" , "Danoxide" and "Kaotic Fours". On January 10th, "Levy","Scaryotic" , "Danoxide" and "Kaotic Fours" disband.
