TOX Gaming is an American team. Under Counter Logic Gaming and OpTic Gaming, the TOX roster became the longest tenured roster in competitive Halo history and won the first two Halo World Championships.

History

Halo 5: Guardians

On March 8, 2018, OpTic Gaming unexpectedly announced the release of its two-time World Champion Halo roster consisting of Paul "SnakeBite" Duarte, Mathew "Royal2" Fiorante, Bradley "Frosty" Bergstrom, and Tony "LethuL" Campbell, Jr. with coach Chris "Royal1" Fiorante.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; invalid names, e.g. too many At the time, the team was already the longest-tenured roster in competitive Halo history.

Rather than joining another organization, the legendary team took a sponsorship from ASTRO Gaming and Team Beyond, attending MLG Columbus as Tox. In Columbus, things started out well for Tox as they won their pool with ease, swept Str8 Rippin, and took out Orlando champions Splyce in the winners semifinals. This was followed by a win over Team Reciprocity which put them in the finals against Splyce. Splyce got their revenge, defeating Tox 4-0 and 4-1 to take their second straight event over Tox/OpTic.

Over the course of the next month, Tox rebranded into TOX Gaming, with multiple sponsors including GameStop jumping on board.[1] At Worlds, TOX won their pool over Renegades before taking out Elevate 4-1 and Team Reciprocity 4-2. In the Winners Finals, TOX were again soundly defeated by Splyce, this time 4-1. In a high-stakes match-up against Team EnVyUs, TOX were able to pull through in a game seven to earn one last shot at stealing the season from Splyce and keep their Championship streak going. There was no miracle however, and TOX were soundly defeated 4-0 by the dominant Splyce roster, taking second place at Worlds for the first time.
