Citadel made their debut Halo roster announcement on December 11, 2014. The roster consisted of Xavier "Lunchy" Lang, Brandon "Cloudy" McLeod, Jarrod "TheBro" Thomson and Brad "Stein" Steinbach.[3] On April 11, 2015, Citadel announced a new roster. Lunchy remained, while the rest of the roster was replaced. The new roster consisted of Lunchy, Nick "Trace" Foord, Jesse "Skull" Graetz and Levi "Armada" Stewart.[4] They took 1st place at ACL Brisbane 2015 shortly after the announcement.

Trace, Skull and Armada recruited Jason "Dizary" Foord as the fourth for their roster, Citadel Gaming Blue. At ACL Melbourne, Citadel Gaming Blue defeated Citadel Gaming Yellow and went on to take 2nd place after falling short to "Rehab's For Quitters" (Blaze, Deano, Heff and Seduce) in the finals. Meanwhile Citadel Yellow finished in 4th-5th.
