Snip3down is coming to Team EnVyUs after recently leaving EvilGeniuses, a team that controlled the Halo pro scene throughout theduration of Halo 2: Anniversary Edition. Their reign seemedunstoppable, but after Tony “Lethul” Campbell Jr.left the team to join rival Counter Logic Gaming, Evil Geniuses hadless success. Evil Geniuses finished the HCS Pro League in fifthplace in the inaugural season and the poor results spurredSnip3down’s departure from the roster. Rumors of Snip3downjoining Team EnVyUs go back to early August.
