Tsquared Reveals Potential Str8 Rippin Roster
In a YouTube video released late last night, legendary Halo player Tsquared has revealed the potential roster for the revived Str8 Rippin. The roster, consisting of Tsquared, Prototype, Mr Blakerz and Chaser, hopes to qualify for the upcoming HCS Pro League. The full video announcement, featuring gameplay of a scrim versus Fatal Ambition where they won the night 6-4, can be found here.
The new squad is made up of various available players from around the scene. Both Mr Blackerz and Chaser joined after leaving the ‘Indecisive’ roster. Prototype has been teamless since he failed to qualify for the Halo World Championship Finals with Dream Team.
Tsquared originally announced his retirement from professional Halo in April 2015, following a lackluster HCS Season One finish. He revived the Str8 Rippin brand to play in the Halo World Championship online qualifiers, but failed to make it to regionals. Most recently, the team played with the roster of Tsquared, Dome, Rammyy and Shazam, failing to make it through the online HCS pro league qualifier after being 3-0'd by Enigma6. The roster fell apart when Rammyy moved on to possibly team with Assault.
Str8 Rippin is one of the most famous teams from halo’s long competitive history. We’re glad to see them back in a possibly full time position and look forward to see them competing for a chance to join the league.
