Crowd Control Picks Up DannyKnight
Halo 5 is a game that has developed a reputation for bringing out some of the most talented individuals competitive Halo has ever seen. Thanks to 343 and ESL’s open qualifying tournaments last season, and with the Open Qualifier starting tomorrow, many talented players and teams have entered the spotlight and Crowd Control is one of them.
In recent weeks, Crowd Control has been a major topic of discusion in the amateur scene and it is for good reason. This team is very talented and is expected to be a major contender for a spot in the Last Chance Qualifier. The team originally started with Levi "LeVy" Stump, Joshua "Tragic" Linenkugel, Tomell "Very Nerdy" Day and Scaryotic. The team would soon after part ways with Scaryotic in the hopes of finding someone who would be a better fit. For the past week, this team has ran with several top prospects and they seem to feel most comfortable with Daniel "DanyKnight" Rivas.
For those of you who do not know who DannyKnight is, he is a Professional Mexican Halo Player who was originally on the professional Mexican team Chosen Legacy. This team did really well last season after qualifying for the Latin American (LATAM) Regional Finals, placing second. This team would not be very active afterwards, however, which may have been the reason DannyKnight left the team to find success with this new team.
With such little time teaming together, it will be very interesting to see how DannyKnight, as well as this entire Crowd Control roster, does this weekend in the Open Qualifiers. They will be facing a lot of competition and with so many obstacles to overcome to even get into the Last Chance Qualifier, Crowd Control will definitely be pushed to their limits.
