Team EnVyUs Pick Up Snip3down and Huke
Team EnVyUs has picked up Eric "Snip3down" Wrona and Cuyler "Huke" Garland ahead of HCS Season Two. The two are replacing Tim "Rayne" Tinkler and Visal "eL TowN" Mohanan, who both left the team after the conclusion of the first HCS Pro League season. The full Team EnVyUs roster will now consist of Justin "iGotUrPistola" Deese, Austin "Mikwen" McCleary, Snip3down and Huke.
The new Team EnVyUs roster features several of the most successful Halo pro players of all time, specifically in Snip3down and iGotUrPistola. The two have even played together in the past on Ambush, along with Richie "Heinz" Heinz and Matthew "FormaL" Piper, the latter of whom has since switched to Call of Duty.
Snip3down is coming to Team EnVyUs after recently leaving Evil Geniuses, a team that controlled the Halo pro scene throughout the duration of Halo 2: Anniversary Edition. Their reign seemed unstoppable, but after Tony "Lethul" Campbell Jr. left the team to join rival Counter Logic Gaming, Evil Geniuses had less success. Evil Geniuses finished the HCS Pro League in fifth place in the inaugural season and the poor results spurred Snip3down’s departure from the roster. Rumors of Snip3down joining Team EnVyUs go back to early August.
Huke, on the other hand, is new to the pro Halo scene. At the ripe of 16, Huke has gone pro in two different esports, beginning with Call of Duty. In the 2014-2015 season, he went pro in Advanced Warfare, playing for teams like FaZe Clan and Denial eSports. When the 18+ age limit went into effect for Black Ops III, Huke switched his focus to Halo 5 and immediately saw success, placing top-four at the Halo World Championship. Huke most recently played under Enigma6 in the HCS Pro League and placed second in the season finals.
