Brandon "Respectful" Stones is an English player and captain of Team Infused. He is also well known for his time with FAB Games eSports and U4X eSports.
Respectful's first high placing at a major event came at Multiplay Insomnia 49, where he played as a member of Reign Deception alongside WarLord, Mose and Adversary. They took 6th place. Respectful then attended Multiplay Insomnia 50 as a member of Reign eSports alongside Snipedrone, Xavi and CreepeazY where he finished 3rd.
Respectful rose to prominence during Halo 2: Anniversary, when he joined Team Infused alongside BUK 20, Reaction and Vard. The team took 3rd place at Insomnia 53 and 4th at the Gfinity Halo 2: Anniversary LAN Championship. He later joined TCM Gaming alongside TuFoxy, Fuzion and Riotz for the EGL Battle of Europe 2015 event, hoping to be the team to qualify for HCS Season 1 Finals. They placed 2nd.
Respectful made waves when he and Fuzion joined Team Vibe alongside SeptiQ and Mose. After qualifying for the HWC UK Finals, Vibe were picked up by Team Dignitas. With a 2nd place finish at the event, Dignitas qualified for the EMEA Regional Finals. At Regionals, the heavily favored Dignitas were unexpectedly ousted in the Group Stage, missing out on Halo World Championship 2016.
After Worlds, Respectful and Mose set their sights towards qualifying for the Summer 2016 season of the EU HCS Pro League. They formed an Online Warriors roster alongside Snakey and Kimbo. The team successfully qualified for Pro League in the Summer Qualifier, finishing 2nd. Shortly afterward, they were picked up by esports organization U4X eSports. U4X went undefeated over the course of the season, finishing 10-0. During the season, they replaced Snakey with TuFoxy. Prior to the Season Finals, the U4X roster was acquired by FAB Games eSports. At the Finals, FAB continued its winning streak, taking 1st place.
After the conclusion of the season, FAB made a roster change, swapping out Kimbo for Jimbo. Over the course of the Fall Season, FAB continued to dominate, though they did drop a single series to Team Infused. They ultimately finished 9-1, good enough for their second straight 1st place finish, and went into the Season Finals looking to repeat as champions. They did so in dominant fashion, not dropping a single game as they dismantled PuLse Gaming and Team Infused (twice) to stake their claim in Halo history. Two weeks later, FAB was in America competing at ME Las Vegas. With wins over 6S Gaming and Pnda Gaming, FAB proved they could hang in America as they took a top 8 finish at the event.
FAB's next task in the Halo Championship Series was qualifying for Halo World Championship 2017, and they'd need a top 2 finish at Gfinity London 2017 to do it. They did so in commanding fashion, dropping games to only Team Infused and Supremacy en route to another 1st place finish. At Worlds, FAB were placed in a group with Str8 Rippin and Shock The World. They 3-0d StW, but were unable to take more than a game from Str8, finishing 2nd in the pool. In the Championship Bracket, FAB were first 4-0d by reigning champions OpTic Gaming. They then swept Team Immunity in a best-of-EU vs. best-of-ANZ match-up. In the following round, they were matched up against Splyce, who defeated them 4-1 and sent them home with a top 8 finish.
Following Worlds season, Jimbo left FAB while TuFoxy began a competitive hiatus, leaving the dominant FAB roster crippled. In their place, Respectful and Mose brought in Lunny and Riotz. With FAB no longer supporting the team, the new roster began competing in the Summer 2017 Pro League as The Lads.
