Vexed Gaming is an esports subsidiary of the gambling site eBettle, with teams in games such as Halo 5: Guardians and Counter Strike: Global Offensive.

Overview

Halo 5: Guardians

Vexed Gaming entered the Halo scene on June 14, 2017, acquiring #1 seeded European pro team The Lads, consisting of Luciano "Mose" Calvanico, Casey "Lunny" Lunn, Max "Riotz" Cottle and Peter "Morguhhh" Brussee.[1] Despite starting the Summer 2017 Pro League season off 2-0 prior to joining Vexed, the team struggled with the recently acquired Morguhhh replacing the departing Respectful. The new roster lost its remaining three matches of the season, ultimately finishing in fourth place, just enough for a spot in the DreamHack Atlanta Championship Bracket. In Atlanta, Vexed were beaten early by fellow European team Team Infused. In their first Elimination match, they were 3-0d by eRa Eternity and sent home with a top sixteen finish.

During the offseason, Vexed replaced the departing Mose and Morguhhh with Christopher "Qristola" O'Keeffe and Kieran "Quadios" Rose. After top three finishes in two of the three Fall 2017 Circuit cups, Vexed attended Gfinity London 2017, where they finished third, beating exceL eSports and Endpoint but losing twice to Supremacy. The finish was strong enough to qualify Vexed for the Open Bracket at DreamHack Denver. In Denver, Vexed took the Open Bracket by storm, dropping only one map on their way into the top sixteen. They started the Championship Bracket off questionably with a 3-0 loss to Evil Geniuses, but turned things around with a 3-0 victory over Radiant Esports. In the second Elimination round, it was not an American team that beat Vexed, but European rivals Team Infused, who sent them home with a top twelve finish.

During the offseason, Vexed parted ways with Qristola, bringing in Michael "Snipedrone" Juchau as his replacement. Vexed were impressive early in the Halo World Championship 2018 season, ultimately going into MLG Orlando as the #2 team in Europe. After finishing third in their group, Vexed defeated Mentality Esports to secure top twelve before being eliminated by Str8 Rippin in a sweep. The following week, Vexed attended Gfinity London, where they finished second to Team Infused, qualifying for Worlds. At Worlds, Vexed finished third in their pool, defeating Team Immunity decisively but losing to Team EnVyUs and Elevate, resulting in a top twelve finish.
