History

Halo 2: Anniversary

Epsilon's first foray into Halo esports came on January 23rd, 2015, when they announced a debut roster of Alex "BUK 20" Buck, Eddie "Reaction" Leck, James "Jimbossity" Bradbrook (also known as Jimbo) and Mike "Snipedrone" Juchau.[1] Their first tournament together was EGL Battle of Europe 2015, where they looked to earn €10,000 as well as the wild card spot in the North American HCS Season 1 Finals. Unfortunately, they finished 3rd at the event. On March 26th, Reaction was confirmed to have left Epsilon, leaving them short a player. This void was filled with the acquisition of BUK 20's twin brother, Will "BUK 57" Buck, coming out of Halo retirement. The roster's first tournament was Multiplay Insomnia 54, where they finished 3rd.

Halo 5

Epsilon was one of four teams invited to the Gamescom Invitational 2015 pre-release Halo 5 tournament. They won, defeating Supremacy in the finals. Their Halo 5 prowess continued to show as they won Multiplay Insomnia 55 and Multiplay Insomnia 56. On January 17th, Epsilon placed 1st at the HWC UK Finals, qualifying for the EMEA Regional Finals. Epsilon were one of two EMEA teams invited to the X Games Aspen 2016 for the opportunity to compete for a gold medal and $15,000. In the group stage of the event, they managed to pull off a big upset, defeating the heavily favored Renegades in four games, but could not replicate their success against Team Allegiance or Team Liquid, resulting in Epsilon being unable to advance out of their group and finishing 5th - 8th. At EMEA Regionals, Epsilon qualified for Halo World Championship 2016, but finished a disappointing top 4, losing to Team Infused in the semifinals. At Worlds, Epsilon were the only non-North American team to make it out of groups, upsetting Cloud9 to make it possible. They lost to eLevate in the quarterfinals, ending their tournament with a top 8 finish.
