Biography

Halo 5

Chosen Legacy was presumably formed in late 2015 by Daniel "DanyKnight" Rivas, Matthew "Revan" Hoffman, Mario "Hunk" Lopez and Christian "Zeus" Chavarria, with the intent of qualifying for Halo World Championship 2016 through the LATAM region. On January 16th, 2016, Chosen Legacy was successful in winning the first Mexican qualifier, earning them a spot in the LATAM Regional Finals. They would go on to finish 2nd, unfortunately not qualifying for the Halo World Championship 2016. Dany ironically found himself on Chosen Squad alongside S3lioh, Dualitat and Dragoniak after CS member Rinnegan was unable to attend Worlds. With DanyKnight, Chosen Squad finished top 16 at Worlds.

After worlds, Dany Knight was given much recognition for his performance by Pros and AMs alike. The conversation snowballed eventually leading up to the North American AM team Crowd Control consisting of Tragic, Very Nerdy, and captain Levy picking up Dany Knight for the HCS/North America/Pro League/Summer 2016/Online Invitational Qualifier. The squad was placed in a tough group, and even after 4-0ing Sentinels team captained by Vetoed, the squad would end up having to replay the marveled elite Team EnVyUs roster in a best of 5 and best of 7 series in both the Winners' and Losers' brackets. They were not able to take a game in either series and thus resulting in the team not qualifying. Since the tournament Dany Knight has made his way back into the Latin American Halo scene captaining his own roster, Fatal Ambition.

Trivia

  • The only player to play for an American team after placing in the LATAM Regional finals.
