Cory Sloss was born on October 15, 1992. He is from California.
Str8 Sick's first documented placing came at MLG San Diego 2008 with a top 16 finish. His team, Crowd Pleasers, included Arkie, Frosty and Frywod. The same lineup would return in Orlando and place outside of the top 32. After a roster change swapping Arkie for Coldhearted, the team name was changed to Versus and they placed outside of the top 8 in Dallas. For the 2009 and 2010 seasons, Str8 Sick could not find a consistent team, and spent time on teams such as DGK, California Love, Driven By Adrenaline, a return to Crowd Pleasers, Define Rush, Relentless and Ambush. For most of these seasons, his teams placed outside the documented range, with his highest placing being 16th with Ambush at MLG Washington, D.C. 2010 with Frosty, Icevayne and SneakEBeaver.
Having failed to reach the 2010 National Championships, Str8 Sick instead competed in the MLG Dallas Reach Exhibition alongside the rest of the D.C. Ambush roster. They placed 17-24th in the exhibition tournament. Str8 Sick started out the 2011 season on Hot N Mild with Cratos, Eli and Jumpman, placing 29th in Dallas. Str8 Sick was then signed by the Fnatic esports organization and attended the next event in Columbus as a member of Fnatic GMM with Chig, Elitest and Mikwen. Though they placed only 19th, Str8 Sick gained new fans when he won the FFA competition at the event. Fnatic then retooled their Halo roster, replacing Mikwen and Elitest with Prototype, a close friend of Str8 Sick's, and Russo. The new roster competed as Fnatic Classic at MLG events. At their first event together in Anaheim, they wowed everyone with an unexpected 3rd placing. Their placings then dropped with a 6th in Raleigh and 11th in Orlando but they returned to form at the Providence National Championships, taking 4th. The Fnatic Classic squad returned at the MLG Winter Championship 2012 where they placed top 8.
The Fnatic squad from Halo: Reach returned for one Halo 4 event, the MLG Fall Championship 2012, where they placed a disappointing 17-24th. After MLG dropped Halo, Str8 Sick attended AGL 5 Nashville and UMG Chicago 2013 as a member of Slaughterhouse and Pure, placing top 16 each time. Str8 Sick placed 3rd at the Halo 4 Global Championship, taking home $10,000. He was undefeated in the FFA heats but lost to Ace in the 1v1 semifinals. He then attended RTX 2014 as a member of Vas’ Avi with Arkanum, Ryanoob and Shooter, where he won his first 4v4 event. He also won the FFA competition at RTX.
Halo 2: Anniversary
HCS Season 1
Shortly after the Launch Invitational, Str8 Rippin replaced the departing Roy and Ryanoob with Prototype and Naded for the Halo Championship Series. They placed 6th at Iron Games Columbus 2014 and 6th again at UGC St. Louis 2015 before Prototype was replaced with Legit. The new roster placed 9-12th at Gamers For Giving 2015 and 5-6th in the season finals at PAX East 2015.
HCS Season 2
On March 15, 2015, Arkanum confirmed that Noble Black had acquired Str8 Sick. However, his tenure with Noble would not last into the beginning of season 2, as on March 28, Noble eSports announced that they had acquired Ninja to replace Str8 Sick, making Str8 Sick a free agent. Two days later on March 30, it was announced that Str8 Sick had joined eLevate. After online success, eLevate went into Iron Games Atlanta 2015 with the 4th seed, but ended up finishing top 12 after losses to eXcellence and Velocity. Shortly after the event, Gabriel announced the disbandment of the eLevate Halo roster, making Str8 Sick and his teammates free agents. Str8 Sick's next move was to rejoin with frequent teammate Prototype. Alongside Prototype, the duo recruited veteran players Frosty and SneakEBeaver, and reformed Active Rush.
On October 25, 2015, Str8 SicK was announced as a member of upstart organization Allegiance eSports, alongside Naded, eL TowN and Goofy. His tenure with Allegiance would not last long enough to compete in a tournament however, as he was released on December 6th. Over the following weeks, Str8 Sick and Goofy formed a new team with Munoz and Nemassist. The new roster was picked up by eLevate, marking Str8 Sick's return to the organization. They eventually qualified for the HWC NA Regional Finals 2016 as the 10th seed. At Regionals, eLevate finished top 16, failing to qualify for Halo World Championship 2016.
