Invictus Gaming – Leaguepedia | League of Legends Esports Wiki

Invictus Gaming is a Chinese multi-platform esports organization founded in August 2011.

History[]

Formation of Invictus Gaming[]

Invictus Gaming was created by Wang Si-Cong (son of Dalian Wanda Group chairman Wang Jianlin, ranked by Forbes as the third-richest man in China), who purchased the team which was until then known as Catastrophic Cruel Memory (CCM), including divisions for Starcraft II, DotA and LoL. The transaction volume amounted to 6 million USD.[1]

Season 1[]

Invictus Gaming had notable appearances in IEM Season VI – Global Challenge Guangzhou and TGA City of Heroes. The team finished the year by beating Team WE to represent China in the 2011 World Cyber Games Grand Finals. They finished 1st in their group which included Dignitas among others but were knocked out later by North American powerhouse Counter Logic Gaming Prime.

Season 2[]

IG qualified for IEM Kiev in the Asian qualifiers but did not receive their visas in time to participate.[2] They also qualified for the IEM World Championship in Hanover, but were denied to travel because of visa issues once again.[3] Long time member and captain Wh1t3zZ left iG for Canis Lupus Campestris in March of 2012.[4] In May, former EHOME player Pdd joined as the top laner to complete a total roster revamp. On July 28, iG’s new lineup took 1st place in the Season Two Chinese Regional Finals, qualifying for the Season 2 World Championship. In early October, iG traveled to Los Angeles to take part in the Season 2 World Championship. In the first game of the group stage, Invictus was pitted against the heavily favored Azubu Frost. IG’s aggressive roaming and early control allowed them to build a lead, but a Baron Nashor steal and well-executed teamfight by Frost resulted in a defeat for the Chinese squad. However, Invictus quickly collected themselves and made quick work of CLG Prime and SK Gaming in relatively lopsided matches. They qualified through to the quarterfinals as the second team from Group A. Unfortunately for iG, their run at the championship would end there, as they were knocked out soundly two games to none by Moscow Five. Although iG’s strong early game continued to established early advantages, mid game missteps in both games gave the Russian powerhouse the opportunities they needed to turn the games around and take the victory in the best-of-three. Invictus Gaming finished 5th-8th place and took home $ 75,000.

Season 3[]

Invictus Gaming played a strong Spring Season, taking 1st seed in the regular season with an 22-6 record. They advanced to the Spring Playoffs where they played against Positive Energy in the Semifinals. Surprisingly, they lost 2-0 to drop to the third-place match where they faced Team WE and beat them 2-1 to take third place. The Summer Season didn’t go as planned for IG, as they found themselves in fifth place with an 10-11 record at the end of the season, missing out on playoffs and not making it to the Season 3 World Championship.

2014 Season[]

Invictus Gaming competed in the Spring Season and advanced to the Spring Playoffs as fourth seed from the regular season. IG managed to beat Oh My God 2-1 to advance to the finals where they lost in a dominating series to EDward Gaming 3-0, taking second seed in playoffs. The Summer Season went as well as the 2013 summer season and IG didn’t even manage to qualify for the Summer Playoffs.

2015 Season[]

IG went on to take KT Rolster Arrows’ mid laner and jungler, RooKie and KaKAO, under contract to hope to qualify for Worlds. They played a mediocre 2015 LPL Spring as they took fifth place with a 8-8-6 record, qualifying for the Spring Playoffs. They beat Vici Gaming 3-1 in the quarterfinals to advance to the semifinals to face EDward Gaming. They lost 3-0 but they managed to win the third place match against Snake Esports 3-1. In the Summer Season, IG took third place in the regular season with another 8-8-6 record to advance to the Summer Playoffs. They played against Vici Gaming in the quarterfinals and beat them 3-2 to advance to the semifinals to play Qiao Gu. Here, they lost 3-2 and were forced to play in the third place match against EDward Gaming. IG took the series 3-1 and ended in third place in playoffs again. They then played in the Regional Finals for a chance to qualify for Worlds 2015. IG played against Qiao Gu in the first round and won convincingly 2-0 to advance to the second round to play against EDward Gaming. Unfortunately, IG couldn’t repeat their round 1 performance and got beaten by EDG 3-1. They dropped to the lower bracket final and played against QG. IG would take the series 3-0 and qualify for Worlds 2015 as third seed from China. At worlds, they were placed in a group with Fnatic, Cloud 9, and ahq e-Sports Club. IG disappointed with a mediocre 2-4 record and were knocked out of the tournament in last place.

2016 Season[]

The 2016 season was fairly straightforward for IG. The team placed 4th in the 2016 LPL Spring Season with an 8-8 record. They were quickly knocked out of playoffs in the first round after getting swept 0-3 by Snake Esports. The summer season was identical to the spring one for IG since they finished in 4th again with a 5-11 record. The summer playoffs also had the same result and IG were knocked out in the first round again by getting swept by I May.

2017 Season[]

Invictus Gaming finished 3rd in Group A of the 2017 LPL Spring Season with an 8-8 record. They would then drop out in the first round of the playoffs with a 1-3 loss to Newbee. IG participated in the 2017 Demacia Cup and finished 3rd after a 1-3 loss to I May in the semifinals. Their summer season was similar to their spring season and they finished 3rd with a 10-6 record. They did much better in the playoffs and finished 3rd with a victory over Team WE in the third place match. IG then participated in the 2017 Season China Regional Finals but failed to make it to Worlds after Team WE got their revenge against them and beat them 3-2.

2018 Season[]

Invictus Gaming added JackeyLove to their starting roster, when the young ADC prodigy finally became eligible for competitive play. Invictus Gaming started the Spring Split with a loss against future nemesis Royal Never Give Up, losing 1-2. After that match, Invictus Gaming went on a 18 series win streak, only dropping 3 games in the process and ending the regular season with an 18-1 record. IG were heavy favorites headed into the Spring Playoffs, however, starting top laner TheShy sustained an injury to his hand, forcing IG to use their sub top laner Duke instead, with whom they had little practice. Having secured a bye into the Semi Finals, IG faced Royal Never Give Up and lost 2-3.

IG attended Rift Rivals, and faced SK Telecom T1 and Machi 17 during the group stage, defeating both. In the finals, they faced KT Rolster, to whom they lost.

In the Summer Split, IG managed to achieve the same record as they had in Spring, once again going 18-1 in series, but dropping more games along the way, and once again losing their only series to Royal Never Give Up. Headed into the Summer Playoffs, IG had yet again secured a semifinal bye. They faced JD Gaming in the Semifinal, managing to defeat them, 3-2. For the first time ever, IG found themselves in the LPL Final, and a spot at the 2018 World Championship as at least the second seed. They faced Royal Never Give Up once again. RNG won the first two games after the final, pushing IG to game point. IG managed to win both Game 3 and 4, and were poised to win Game 5. However, RNG made a comeback in Game 5, and once again denied IG the LPL championship.

IG were put into Group D at the World Championship, along with Fnatic, 100 Thieves, and G-Rex. IG ended the group stage with a 5-1 record, but ended up losing the tiebreaker for 1st to Fnatic, so IG headed into the quarterfinals as the second seed from Group D. They were drawn against Korean champions KT Rolster, whom they had previously lost to at Rift Rivals in Dalian. IG were the underdogs going into the series, but managed to take KT down in 5 games after nearly sweeping them but for an extremely close base race in Game 3.

In the semifinals in Gwangju, IG faced G2 Esports, who had managed to take down IG’s nemesis RNG in 5 games. Despite analysts calling for a possible close series, IG defeated G2 3-0 as Rookie and TheShy starred against lane opponents Perkz and Wunder. In the grand final in Incheon, IG faced Fnatic again and this time dominated, winning 3-0 in the third-fastest best-of-5 series in professional League of Legends history. It marked not only IG’s and China’s first World Championship but also IG’s first international tournament win and the first non-Korean world champion since Taipei Assassins in 2012. Ning won Finals MVP honors after posting a 13/3/29 KDA in the series (including 11/0/19 as Camille in Game 1 and Gragas in Game 2).

2019 Season[]

IG managed to retain their entire roster from 2018 going into the 2019 season. IG started off their season by winning the 2018 Demacia Cup Winter by defeating Topsports Gaming 3-1 in the finals.
IG finished the 2019 Spring Split regular season in 2nd place with a 11-4 record, acquiring a bye to the semifinals. IG went on to face Topsports Gaming in the semifinals of playoffs, beating them 3-1 and advancing to the finals. In the finals, they faced 8th seed JD Gaming, who made a miracle run to the finals. Invictus Gaming destroyed JD Gaming in the finals of the 2019 LPL Spring Split with an astounding 3-0 stomp, breaking the record of fastest LPL final in history with only 86 minutes played, acquiring their first LPL title since the organization was formed and a spot at the 2019 Mid-Season Invitational.

IG continued its winning streak by going 9-0 to start the 2019 MSI Main Event before SK Telecom T1 defeated them to conclude the group stage. After selecting Team Liquid as their opponent for the playoffs, Invictus dropped the first two games despite holding over five thousand gold leads in both matches. IG was able to take game three, but could not turn around the series as the tournament favorites fell in four games, 1-3.

IG’s shocking loss to Team Liquid left the team in shambles, with Baolan being subbed out for the first two weeks of the summer split in favor of their rookie LDL support, Lucas. Rookie was forced to step away for a while as well, with Forge taking his place. IG managed to qualify for playoffs, finishing the regular season in 6th place. In the first round of playoffs, IG faced off against LNG Esports. Many expected IG to take the series, but instead, LNG destroyed IG in a 3-0 stomp. This would mean that IG would have to win the LPL 2019 Regional Finals in order to qualify for Worlds. In the first round of the gauntlet, IG managed to take down JD Gaming in a 5 game series. In the final of the LPL gauntlet, Invictus faced off against Top Esports. The series went back and forth, but in the end, Invictus managed to take the victory in game 5 and qualify for the 2019 World Championship as the third seed from the LPL.

At the World Championship, Invictus would be drawn into Group D, alongside DAMWON Gaming, Team Liquid and Ahq eSports Club. IG finished the group stage with a 4-2 record, only dropping their two games to DAMWON. IG qualified for the knockout stage of Worlds 2019. In the quarterfinals, Invictus Gaming would meet the LCK’s 2nd seed Griffin. Invictus were seen as the underdogs in the series, but they came storming out the gate, winning the first two games of the series to take a 2-0 lead. Griffin managed to fight back and take game 3, but it was all for nor, as IG stomped Griffin in game 4 to advance to the semifinals. In the semifinals, Invictus Gaming met fellow Chinese team FunPlus Phoenix. IG yet again entered the series as underdogs and lost Game 1 of the series. They managed to tie up the series in a nail-biter game 2, but fell behind 1-2 after losing Game 3. In the fourth game, IG managed to build up an advantage and lead in the late game, but failed to execute properly and were eliminated from the 2019 World Championship by FunPlus Phoenix, who would go on to win the finals and become World Champions.
