Ronin entered the Halo scene on May 7th, 2017, acquiring the pro-seeded Crowd Pleasers roster of Carlos "Cratos" Ayala, Cory "Str8 SicK" Sloss, Tyler "Spartan" Ganza and Ayden "Suspector" Hill alongside coach Nicholas "ShowTime" Laskaras and manager Armen "Lenny" Danielyan. At UMG Daytona, Ronin finished last in their pool after losses to Team EnVyUs and Splyce. In the bracket, they swept Wise Gaming before being swept by EnVyUs. In Losers, they were able to eliminate DoZe Esports before losing 3-1 to Str8 Rippin and going home in the top 8. After a poor start to the Summer Pro League, Ronin dropped Cratos, replacing him with Visal "eL ToWn" Mohanan. Manager/coach ShowTime was also dropped, with Lenny taking over as full-time manager.
