Created by Owner and GM Brad Dick Brad Dick DBA Eximius Sports © | All Rights Reserved 1998-Present [email protected] (1998-2005) Eximius Sports was created in 1998 when Counter-Strike was first born. We were called then, w00t gaming. We changed the name to Eximius Sports after CPL 2005 when we finished top 15 at the tournament. The name we felt was more professional. The word Eximius is Latin meaning, superb or extraordinary. (2005-2008) Eximius Sports through these years picked up many different games from Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Quake, Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead, and Day of Defeat. In every game that Eximius competed in we were all ranked in the top 10 in the world. Some specific victories would be CPL 2007 in Counter-Strike Source finishing 5th, WSVG 2006 Call of Duty 2 finishing 5th, 2007 CAL-Invite finishing 2nd. Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 winning all online events and being ranked number 1 in the world. (2008-2011) Eximius Sports then focused on the Championship Gaming Series. Owner Brad Dick had the opportunity to join the CGS as a member of the Chicago Chimera behind Brian “DKT” Flander. He worked with Brian and was promised a GM spot when the league expanded. The league closed and that door also closed. Eximius Sports continued to thrive in Counter-Strike Source and Team Fortress 2 in these years. Two of Eximius Sports players were drafted into the CGS in 2008; one of them being Erik “da_bears” Stromberg 2011-Present Eximius has operated as a gaming community providing public servers with stats for thousands of gamers. We have done shout casting for the players in the servers bringing them back for more fun every night.
