Jake White is from Norwich, England.
Chalkie's Halo career took off in 2011, when he joined All4Down alongside CreepeazY, Khalifa and Shay. They placed 12th at ECL 2 Blackpool. With Struj and Flameshy in place of Khalifa and Shay, they took 7th at EGL 4 London. Chalkie then joined Total eSports Circuit alongside TuFoxy, Vard and Onset. They took 4th at EGL 5 Blackpool. TuFoxy and Onset were then replaced with Baxter and Ramirez for a 1st place finish at EGL 7 Blackpool, Chalkie's first tournament win and the beginning of a long period of teaming with Ramirez. The same roster, now known as Uprising, took 2nd place at EGL 8 Manchester, falling to apeX Power in the Finals to close out Reach.
Chalkie returned to his winning ways to kick off European Halo 4, taking 1st place at the Reflex GT Winter 2013 as a member of High Society alongside Ramirez, Reaction and Fragby. For EGL 9 Blackpool, Chalkie formed Reign.Devastation alongside Kamikaze, WarLord and Tranq, taking 6th place. The European Halo 4 circuit then shifted primarily to Multiplay Insomnia events. Chalkie reunited with Ramirez and Reaction alongside Riotz as High Society for Insomnia 49, where they took 3rd. Reaction was then replaced by TuFoxy for Insomnia 50, where they took 2nd.
Halo 2: Anniversary
To kick off H2A, Chalkie and the High Society squad reunited under the TCM Gaming banner. Their first event was the ESL Gamescom Showdown 2014, where they took 1st. They were the only European team invited to the PAX Prime Showdown 2014, where they placed 4th below only American pro teams. They were then invited to another American invitational - the ESL MCC Launch Invitational, where they placed top 8, below six American teams.
Despite their lack of success in the American invitationals, TCM Gaming returned to Europe as kings, taking 1st at both Insomnia 53 and the Gfinity Halo 2: Anniversary LAN Championship. Chalkie and Ramirez then shook the European foundation up, leaving the TCM squad to join Team Vibe alongside SeptiQ and BlackJack. They took 1st place at EGL Battle of Europe 2015, earning an invitation to the HCS Season 1 Finals as the wildcard seed. To enter the bracket, they would have to beat the 8th seeded Noble Black. They failed to do so, taking only one game. Noble went on to finish 3rd in the tournament.
Chalkie and Ramirez reunited the TCM Gaming lineup with TuFoxy and Riotz, this time under the Supremacy banner. Though the Halo 2: Anniversary European circuit was still on-going, they were invited to the Gamescom Invitational 2015 Halo 5 exhibition tournament. They took 2nd at the event, losing in the Finals to Epsilon eSports. At the final H2A event, Insomnia 55, Supremacy finished 3rd, losing to CAZ eSports in the Losers' finals after being knocked into Losers' by Epsilon.
Halo 5: Guardians
The Supremacy squad stuck together for the start of Halo 5, now under the banner of Team Infused. They continued to be unable to defeat Epsilon, taking 2nd place at Insomnia 56. Looking to qualifying for Halo World Championship 2016, Chalkie and Infused replaced Riotz with BlackJack and qualified for the EMEA Regional Finals by placing 3rd at the UK Finals. At Regionals, Infused pulled off the upset, defeating Epsilon in the Semifinals and taking 1st place to qualify for Worlds. At Worlds, Infused were unable to make it out of their pool, falling to the two American teams and finishing top 16.
After Worlds, Chalkie looked to qualify for the Summer 2016 HCS Pro League. He and TuFoxy formed XMEN alongside Jimbo and Snipedrone and immediately qualified at their first opportunity. After an average start to the season, TuFoxy left the team to join the 1st place U4X eSports. This left XMEN to recruit Chalkie's longtime teammate Ramirez. XMEN ended up finishing 3rd in the League. At the Season Finals, Chalkie and XMEN took 2nd, falling to FAB Games eSports (formerly U4X) in the Finals.
After the Finals, Jimbo and Snipedrone left XMEN, leaving Chalkie and Ramirez to recruit Lunny and Anima for the Fall Season. In the midst of the season, XMEN were signed by VwS Gaming. Anima was then released and replaced by Riotz. VwS ultimately finished 5th in the standings and faced Relegation. At Relegation, they were defeated early by Egoed, but managed to defeat Prophecy and, in a rematch, Egoed to retain their pro status.
During the offseason, Ramirez and Lunny left VwS to join Team Vibe.
