Ryan "Ryanoob" Geddes is an American player for Team Allegiance. He is well known for his unorthodox, self-described as "nerdy" playstyle, and for his time on teams such as Denial eSports, Winterfox and Warriors.
Ryan "Ryanoob" Geddes, originally known as "arealygoodnoob", began his professional career at MLG Orlando 2010 as a member of Adrenaline Rush, with Dubay, Blaze and Jerawockee, where they finished in 14th place. He left AR to join Warriors for Columbus with Brake, Goofy and NocternalKernal where they placed 5th. He would compete with Goofy, Legend and Twylight in Raleigh as Darkest Hour and finish in 16th. They then swapped Legend for Batmayne and finished 4th in D.C.
Ryanoob's first foray into Halo: Reach was in 2010, when Darkest Hour failed to qualify for the 2010 National Championships. Instead, Ryanoob rejoined Jerawockee as a member of Adrenaline Rush, for the Dallas Reach Exhibition, this time with Nate and Twin Savior. The team would finish 16th.
Ryanoob started 2011 in Dallas as a member of Soul with Brake, Blaze and Formal, rising from the open bracket to take 5th place. For Columbus he would join Naded, Legit and Tsquared on Str8 Rippin for a 2nd place finish. He then rejoined Blaze and Formal, now playing with Maniac on Believe The Hype, for Anaheim and finished 5th. He and Blaze then joined A Pure Gangster and Lethul on Infamous for the rest of the year. They would win Raleigh come in 2nd at Orlando before finishing in 11th at the Providence National Championships.
For the MLG Fall Championship 2012, Ryanoob rejoined Goofy and Legit on Warriors alongside Ninja. They won the event. This lineup stuck together for two AGL events where they placed 2nd. Ryanoob then left to join Classic for AGL 7, placing 3rd and UMG Chicago 2013, placing 2nd. For AGL 8 he rejoined Infamous, placing 2nd.
Halo 2: Anniversary
Ryanoob's first H2A event was the ESL MCC Launch Invitational as a returning member of Str8 Rippin. They placed 2nd. Ryanoob was then signed to Denial eSports with Mikwen, Chig and Cloud. They came in 9-12th at Iron Games Columbus 2014 with Clutch subbing in for Chig, and won UGC St. Louis 2015 with the full roster. The team wouldn't fare as well at Gamers For Giving 2015, taking home 5th place. They went into the season finals at PAX East 2015 as the #3 seed, again underperforming and taking 5-6th place.
On March 13, 2015, Ryanoob confirmed on Twitter that he had been released from Denial. On March 18, it was confirmed that he was a part of Team Randa with Naded, ContrA and Randa. On April 17th, it was announced that the team had been acquired by Winterfox. Winterfox placed 4th at Iron Games Atlanta 2015, being eliminated by Cloud9. Winterfox underwent a roster change between events, swapping out Contra for Arkanum. Despite the change, Winterfox repeated their 4th place finish at HCS Indianapolis. Ryanoob and Winterfox lost a step at the HCS Season 2 Finals, closing out their season with a top 6 finish.
Halo World Championship
In the early stages of Halo 5, Naded was replaced on Winterfox by Shooter. Arkanum left late during the Halo World Championship 2016 qualifying stages to join Team EnVyUs. WFX picked up Domey in his place. Winterfox eventually qualified for the HWC 2016 NA Regional Finals as the 14th seed. At Regionals, WFX finished top 16, failing to qualify for Worlds.
- Ryanoob has won at least one event with four different teams: Infamous, Warriors, Vas`Avi and Denial eSports.
