History

Halo 5

Scooping up the Leftovers - Halo World Championship 2016

The team of Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, Tyler "Spartan" Ganza, Cameron "Victory X" Thorlakson and Hamza "Commonly" Abbaali represented Renegades in the 4th NA Online Qualifying cup. The next week, the same roster, minus Commonly and plus Braedon "StelluR" Boettcher represented Renegades in the 5th cup. The team remained officially known as Leftovers until January 25th, when Renegades announced the acquisition of the Leftovers roster, which had previously qualified for the HWC NA Regional Finals as the 5th seed.[1] Renegades's first live event was the X Games Aspen 2016 invitational, where they placed 4th, just out of medal range. At NA Regionals, Renegades had a struggling start in group stage, falling 3-0 to rivals Team Liquid. They defeated the other two teams in the group to advance to the bracket, where they met Counter Logic Gaming in the first round. Renegades were defeated 3-0 in the series, ending their tournament with a top 8 finish, enough to qualify for Halo World Championship 2016. Renegades came out strong at Worlds, upsetting the highly favored Evil Geniuses in group stage. They went 3-0 in their group and drew Team Allegiance in the quarterfinals. Despite going up 2-0 in the series, Allegiance would battle back, winning the series 3-2 and ending Renegades' night with a top 8 finish.

After Worlds, the Renegades roster split, with Spartan and StelluR seeking other team opportunities. Ninja and Victory X eventually settled on Hamza "Commonly" Abbaali, most recently of Evil Geniuses, and Zane "Penguin" Hearon of Team eLevate.[2] The new roster's first event was the Summer Qualifier, where they went 2-1 in their group, initially losing to OpTic Gaming 3-2. They rebounded, defeating Denial eSports 3-1, before enacting revenge on OpTic with a 4-1 defeat, qualifying themselves for the HCS Summer 2016 Pro League. Renegades had their ups and downs throughout the season, eventually finishing with a completely even win/loss rate in series and maps, good enough for fourth place.

During the final weeks of the Pro League season, it was hinted at by Commonly that the roster would leave the organization for a new team after their contracts expired in July. Though the team would close out the season in 4th place under the Renegades banner, this rang true when, on July 25th, the roster signed with Cloud9, ending Renegades' tenure in Halo.[3]

2018: Renegades signs Instinct

Renegades returned almost two years later on February 9, 2018, in the heart of HaloWC 2018 season, signing Instinct, a roster consisting of Jason "Lunchbox" Brown, Aaron "Ace" Elam, Bradley "aPG" Laws, Travis "Neptune" McCloud, and coach Casey "Strobe" Hebert.[4] Renegades were impressive at MLG Orlando, finishing in the top six after losing to only OpTic Gaming and Team Reciprocity. After Orlando, coach Strobe was replaced by Dillon "Randa" Randa. Renegades held the fifth seed going into the Regional Finals at MLG Columbus, where they successfully qualified for Worlds with a top six finish, bowing out after 3-0 losses to Team Reciprocity and Team EnVyUs. At Worlds, Renegades finished second in their pool, losing 3-1 to TOX Gaming. In the first round of bracket play, Renegades were narrowly defeated by Team EnVyUs 4-3. They went down to the losers bracket where they took out Team Infused 4-1 before being swept by Team Reciprocity and sent home with a top six finish.
