XMEN is a former European Halo team.

History

Halo 5

XMEN was formed on May 1st, 2016 by former Epsilon eSports members James "Jimbo" Bradbrook, Michael "Snipedrone" Juchau alongside former Team Infused members Perry "TuFoxy" Kenyon and Jake "Chalkie" White.[1] As a result of the new team forming, Jimbo and Snipedrone, who had originally secured a spot in the HCS Pro League as members of Epsilon eSports, would have to fight to earn a spot like every other team. Their first opportunity to do so was the online Summer Qualifier. They went undefeated in the bracket, dropping games only to the 2nd place finishing Online Warriors, and secured their spot and first seed in the Pro League. After a 3-3 start to the season, TuFoxy left the team to join 1st place U4X eSports.[2] He was replaced shortly after by Andrew "Ramirez" Corrigan. XMEN would close out the season with an even 5-5 record, good enough for 3rd place.

At the Season Finals, XMEN took 2nd place, losing only to top ranked FAB Games eSports and defeating the higher ranked Team Infused. After the event, Jimbo left the team to join Dinosaurs[3] Snipedrone's departure followed, as he left X-Men to join Team Vibe.[4] In a roster frenzy shortly before the lock, XMEN finalized their roster by picking up Casey "Lunny" Lunn and Dave "Anima" Gross.[5] On October 11th, after a 2-2 start to the season, the XMEN roster was acquired by VwS Gaming.[6]
