Total Earnings:

Ghost Gaming is a North American Esport organization known for its Gears of War team. They also have lineups in Call of Duty, Rocket League and PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS. They ventured into the CS:GO scene originally in April 2017 by acquiring Bee's Money Crew, who were already competing in the Esports Championship Series at the time - whilst also competing for a spot in ESL Pro League which they would successfully qualify for Season 6 over Rush - who had disbanded after their defeat, with their spot in ESEA Premier being taken over by Muffin Lightning later joining Pnda Gaming.

Their original CS:GO lineup consisted of Matthew "Wardell" Bowman Yu, Connor "CoNnOrRr93" Glover, Jason "neptune" Tran, Sebastian "seb" Bucki and Andrew "ShoT_UP Orlowski with Phong "bee-1os-" Nguyên functioning as their coach. ShoT_UP was released shortly after the first month of their lineup joining with the North American organization, due to failing to move to the team's gaming house, with bee-1os- returning to the starting lineup as their in-game leader. After a set of poor results, Ghost Gaming decided to pull the plug on all of their players except for Wardell who they had kept under contract. The trio of bee-1os-, CoNnOrRr93 and neptune would later return under the Bee's Money Crew banner, alongside other talents such as Dallas "Dallas" Micks (playing for RONIN at the time) and Joshua "steel" Nissan, whom would all play together at Fragadelphia 11 placing 3rd. After the events of Fragadelphia, Ghost Gaming would later reacquire Bee's Money Crew, though Wardell would be left out of the lineup, eventually joining Rogue's new North American team.

Ghost Gaming's second lineup would consist of seb, CoNnOrRr93, neptune, Ronnie "ryx" Bylicki and Caio "zqk" Fonseca, reigning from Brazil. bee-1os- would also be present in the lineup as the team's coach once again, but was also seen standing in for neptune in ESL Pro League Season 6 due to age restrictions (requiring every player competing to be 16-years-old or older). Joshua "sancz" Ballenger would also be present as a backup, though he was never used in any games during his time in the organization. After a short while, Wardell would leave Rogue to rejoin Ghost Gaming in neptune's place, and Dallas would later join the starting lineup in zqk's place. Shortly before ROG Masters 2017 - Americas LAN, Dallas left Ghost, leaving former coach bee-1os- to take his spot.
