Str8 Sick Joins OpTic Halo
To review the current OpTic Halo roster, as the team has made quite a few changes over the past two weeks, the full squad is as follows:
Captain Nick "Maniac" Kershner
Brett "Naded" Leonard
Aaron "Ace" Elam
Cory "Str8 Sick" Sloss
with Michael "Flamesword" Chaves as Head Coach
This changes leaves Maniac as the only remaining player for OpTic from the Halo World Championship series of tournaments.
Str8 Sick, although never playing with Ace or Maniac, did team with Naded for an extended amount of time during Halo 2 Anniversary. Representing Str8 Rippin, the two typically placed around the 6th place position. Prior to that he saw success on Fnatic Classic during Reach where they came close to winning events multiple times, most notably at MLG Anaheim 2011 and MLG Providence 2011, finishing 3rd and 4th respectively. Although he hasn't been the most successful team player, Str8 Sick has seen countless wins in Free For All events, highlighting his abilities as an individually skilled player.
