Biography

Halo 4

Snipedrone first competed in a major Halo 4 event at EGL 9 Blackpool, on team Optimum alongside Redemption, Frankie and Riddla. They took 9th place. Snipedrone's big break came at the tail-end of European Halo 4, as part of team Outbreak alongside Jimbo, Adamack and Smithy at Insomnia 49. They took 1st place at the event. At the final UK Halo 4 event, Insomnia 50, Snipedrone played on Reign eSports alongside Respectful, Xavi and CreepeazY for a 3rd place finish.

Halo 3 Revival

Snipedrone competed at Insomnia 51 as a part of team Tactical Gaming alongside Flamez, Hollerz and Xavi, placing 2nd. Snipedrone and Flamez then joined VwS Gaming alongside Deany and Snakey for Insomnia 52, where they placed 1st.

Halo 2: Anniversary

The VwS roster stuck together going into the new game, taking 4th place at Insomnia 53 and top 6 at the Gfinity Halo 2: Anniversary LAN Championship. In 2015, Snipedrone joined Epsilon eSports alongside Jimbo, 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

Snipedrone 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 XMEN 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 Season Finals, Snipedrone left XMEN to join Team Vibe alongside SeptiQ, Snakey and Qristola. Vibe's performance improved dramatically with the roster changes, as they finished in 2nd place with a 7-3 record. At the Season Finals, Vibe came out flat in their opening match against Team Infused, losing 4-2. In the Losers' Semifinals, they looked to rebound against PuLse Gaming, but were defeated 4-1 by the strong French squad. This resulted in Vibe finishing 4th.

During the offseason, Snipedrone was released from Vibe. He went on to form Avada Kedavra alongside Doodle, VexZeus and Quad. The roster was quickly acquired by Epsilon eSports, marking Snipedrone's return to the organization. After a top 6 finish at Gfinity London 2017, Epsilon released its roster and Snipedrone joined Team Infused alongside Phlux, Kimbo and Snakey. The new Infused failed to win the Last Chance Qualifier, finishing 3rd, and split up shortly after.

Looking toward the Summer 2017 Pro League, Snipedrone left Infused to join Invictus (the team which formerly competed under London Conspiracy) alongside Qristola, Ramirez and Jimbo. Invictus ultimately finished second in the season, with their only loss coming to Team Infused. This finish gave them a Championship Bracket seed at DreamHack Atlanta. Though victorious over Supremacy in their opening match, Invictus were swiftly swept by both American teams they faced at the event - OpTic Gaming and Ronin Esports, and Invictus went home with a top twelve finish.

Following Atlanta, Snipedrone and Ramirez replaced the departing Jimbo and Qristola with Phlux and Snakey. After placing highly in two of the EU Circuit cups, the team was signed by exceL eSports. After finishing third in the final open cup, exceL attended Gfinity London, where they finished a surprising top six after losses to Supremacy and Vexed Gaming. Still without a DreamHack Denver seed, exceL were able to win the LCQ and gain entry into the NA finals event. earning themselves the #2 seed in the Denver Open Bracket. After an inspiring Losers Bracket run following an early loss, exceL earned a spot in the Championship Bracket, where they lost back-to-back (to OpTic Gaming and Supremacy) and took a top sixteen finish.

During the offseason, Snipedrone joined Vexed Gaming alongside Quad, Lunny, and Riotz. Vexed were impressive early in the Halo World Championship 2018 season, ultimately going into MLG Orlando as the #2 team in Europe. After finishing third in their group, Vexed defeated Mentality Esports to secure top twelve before being eliminated by Str8 Rippin in a sweep. The following week, Vexed attended Gfinity London, where they finished second to Team Infused, qualifying for Worlds.
