Team Exile5 (commonly abbreviated as 'x5'), formed in 2007, is a professional multi-gaming organization based in Australia sponsored by Nvidia. The organization is growing and helping to promote the eSports industry, especially in Australia.


Team Exile5's first foray into Starcraft II was picking up Team Mastermind, a small Australian-based clan, in 2012. Within six months there were only two members of the original team remaining. x5 then focused on rebuilding their squad by adding 2012 WCS Australian Champion Jared "PiG" Krensel, to their ranks.
