Halo 5: Guardians

TriPPPeY emerged into competitive Halo prominence in Summer 2016, when he competed in the qualifying stages of the HCS Pro League. His team, Catastrophe, consisting of himself, Musa, Renegade and Brainstorm, made a splash by winning the first of three Open Qualifiers to qualify for the Last Chance Qualifier. In the LCQ, Catastrophe finished in the top 8, not high enough to qualify. Catastrophe then began competing in the Open Circuit after replacing Musa with Nemassist. After three weeks as a top 3 team in the Open Circuit, Catastrophe replaced Renegade with v t3ct9. The roster eventually fell apart and TriPPPeY formed Tryvek alongside Renegade, Musa and Goofy. Tryvek ended up finishing in the top 8 in the Open Circuit Finals, not high enough to qualify for Relegation.

Going into the Fall 2016 season, TriPPPeY formed a new team - Contagious, consisting of himself alongside Chaser, Saiyan and FireBird. Chaser was soon replaced by v t3ct9. In Week 5, TriPPPeY and Saiyan revamped the roster, bringing in Scaryotic and TireIron and winning their first Legendary Cup. Going into the final week, Scaryotic was replaced by Boamx, and they won another Legendary Cup. Going into the Open Circuit Finals at HCS Las Vegas 2016, Contagious was signed by 6S Gaming. They finished 2nd in the Finals, good enough to qualify for Relegation, followed by a top 12 finish in the Championship Bracket. For Relegation, TriPPPeY's team was sponsored by MoneyMatches and went under the name The MoneyMatches Team. They finished 4th, failing to earn pro status.

During the offseason, TriPPPeY's stock rose dramatically as he propelled himself into a pro seed, joining Luminosity Gaming alongside Ninja, Victory X and eL TowN. At the team's first event together, they finished in the top 8. TriPPPeY then left Luminosity to join Team Allegiance alongside Spartan, Commonly and Suspector. In Vegas, Allegiance placed top 8, narrowly missing out on Halo World Championship 2017 qualification after a 4-2 loss to Pnda Gaming.

After Worlds, TriPPPeY tried out on a number of teams before finally returning to Luminosity Gaming alongside Ninja, Victory X and Saiyan. At UMG Daytona, Luminosity finished 2nd in its pool. In the Championship Bracket, they were upset early by Oxygen Supremacy in a 3-0 sweep. They managed to eliminate Believe the Hype and Evil Geniuses before bowing out to Splyce for a top 8 finish. After the first few weeks of the Summer Season, Luminosity replaced Victory X with APG. They ultimately finished the season in sixth place, just enough to avoid the Relegation tournament. At the DreamHack Atlanta Finals, Luminosity started things off with a victory over Ronin Esports, but they were defeated in the following round by Team Liquid. After securing a top eight finish, Luminosity were ousted from the bracket in a five-game loss to Evil Geniuses, going home with a top six finish.

During the offseason, Ninja retired, leaving a spot open on the team. The spot was soon filled by Rayne. The team did slightly better in the Fall 2017 Season, finishing in fifth place with a 3-4 record. At the DreamHack Denver Finals, Luminosity were upset early by the 12th seeded Str8 Rippin. In the Elimination Bracket, Luminosity won a close match with Ronin Esports to secure top eight. In the next round, they swept Evil Geniuses and faced the tough task of beating Team EnVyUs for top four. Despite gaining a 2-1 advantage at one point, Luminosity fell to EnVyUs and went home with a top six finish.

The Luminosity roster disbanded in the lead-up to Halo World Championship 2018 season, with TriPPPeY and Saiyan ultimately deciding to team with iGotUrPistola and bubu dubu. Initially competing as Ambush, the team was quickly signed by Team EnVyUs. EnVyUs made history at MLG Orlando by becoming both the first team to defeat OpTic Gaming before the Winners' Finals, and the first team to sweep OpTic, in their 3-0 victory in the Winners Semifinals. They were defeated by Splyce in the Winners Finals however, and OpTic took advantage of the rematch opportunity in the Elimination Finals, defeating EnVyUs 4-2 and sending them home in third. At MLG Columbus, EnVyUs started off similarly strong, sweeping their pool and qualifying for Halo World Championship 2018, but this time around they lost in the first round of bracket play to Splyce. After narrowly avoiding an upset loss to Str8 Rippin in the first round of losers, EnVyUs swept Renegades before running into Splyce once again. Splyce took a 3-0 victory and sent EnVyUs home in fourth. At Worlds, EnVyUs convincingly won their pool and went on to narrowly defeat Renegades 4-3 in the opening round of bracket play. They were then taken out 4-2 by Splyce, resulting in a losers bracket rematch against Elevate. EnVyUs won the match 4-0 and went on to win their following match against Team Reciprocity 4-3 in a game seven which featured a Reciprocity member's controller disconnecting at a crucial moment in-game. In the losers finals, EnVyUs very nearly defeated TOX Gaming, but ultimately took third place after a 4-3 loss.
