Debuting to Major League Gaming’s Pro
Circuit midway through the 2005 season, Itwasluck and his brother Bonfire made an immediate impact on the circuit, producing frequent top four finishes. A complete unknown before splashing onto the scene at the 2005 LasVegas event, Itwasluck became the poster boy for up and coming players in the league. His immediate emergence to the elite ranks of the league proved that Halo was not a stagnant hierarchy, inspiring players throughout the community to strive for similar greatness.

A shy and soft spoken competitor, Itwasluck’s personality is reflected in his play style. Frequently occupying the role of primary support, Itwasluck provides cover fire and applies constant long-range pressure to his opposition, enabling his teammates to make aggressive flanking runs. Itwasluck’s evasive strafe and cunning team play earned him MLG Dallas’ 2006 Scion Player of the Year nomination.

Origin of Handle: I used to play alot of Rumble Pit and after making clutch comebacks I’d hear you’re so lucky or that was luck. One day my account got banned & I created Itwasluck & Bonfire made Thatyouwon. I didn’t plan to keep my gamertag but it grew on me.

First Competitive Gaming Memory: My First besides tiny local tournaments was a $1000 tournament held at Velocity games. My team (Me, Bonfire, Ka Pwn & Snipa) played (Killer N, Ronin, Shade & SlayerD) in the finals and ended up winning 2-1. This is where we met Nick for the first time.
