Considered by many to be the best player in the game, Ogre 2 and twin brother Ogre 1 have dominated the scene since their emergence during the Halo: CE era. A solid fixture of Final Boss’ hallowed roster, Ogre 2 is the envy of players throughout the world. Ogre 2 has emerged victorious from nearly every tournament entered during his illustrious career, and his tremendous success in the sport cannot be overstated.

While known predominantly for his raw slaying power, he possesses an intelligent and versatile playstyle. Ogre 2 frequently adapts his gameplay to most effectively counter the strategies employed by the opposition, and holds a strong recognition of roles that need to be filled during various stages of a match. Primarily used as a utility slayer, Ogre 2 provides key kills to prevent opposing teams from seizing map control. His well rounded gameplay stands as a live model of how the game should be played. With few if any weaknesses, look to Ogre 2 to be a force in the league for years to come.

Origin of Handle: Original Gangstas Representin Everywhere….ha ha ha no but really, I don’t know. I think it was on Gamespy Arcade where you could randomly generate a picture to be next to your name, kind of like your icon. We kept hitting the button until we got something cool looking, and it happened to be this big OGRE guy. Then we made 1 and 2 because we’re twins. I got ‘Ogre 2′ because I was born second.

First Competitive Gaming Memory: Halo50k1 Halo1 competition. This was back in the day when TDT dominated and Darkman was god. My name was called for the first round FFA with Darkman in it…. My hands were shaking but I won the Free-For-All by 10 kills, going 50-27.
