Overview   History    

2014 Season

The start of the Season 4 Spring Split was disappointing for the team, as they found themselves consistently in the bottom 3 teams until the 8th week. From here onwards, Alliance dominated the split. The performances of Froggen and Nyph in particular propelled them up to 1st in the penultimate week, but an unsuccessful superweek saw them lose the top spot. Alliance finished in 3rd place behind SK Gaming and Fnatic.

Alliance's performance in their first split resulted in their qualification for the Spring Playoffs. The playoffs saw the team lose to Fnatic in the semifinal, and following this, Alliance lost to ROCCAT in the 3rd place match.

The Summer Split saw Alliance emulate their form from the end of the Spring Split. They finished in 1st place, staying at the peak of the rankings table for the entire split.

Following this was the Summer Playoffs, a chance for the team to qualify for the World Championship in their first season with the organization. Alliance placed 1st in the playoffs, beating Fnatic in the final, and secured themselves a place at the World Championship.

The World Championship saw Alliance placed in Group D along with NaJin White Shield, Cloud9 and KaBuM! e-Sports. Notably, Alliance suffered a shock loss to KaBuM! in their last match of the group stage. A win would've seen them play in tie-breaker matches to progress to the knockout stage, but it was not to be. Alliance beat each team once and lost to each team once, resulting in a 3rd place finish in the group, meaning they would not go any further in the tournament.

2015 Preseason

After his contract ran out, Alliance's coach Leviathan decided to leave the team, going on to join Brazilian organization Keyd Stars.[1] Tabzz also left the team, later citing personal reasons for his departure. Soon after, Alliance completed the signing of Rekkles to fill the vacant AD carry role.[2] Alliance were the European team invited to IEM San Jose, and were seeded directly into the semifinals. Despite the addition of Rekkles, they lost their semifinal match-up against Cloud9.

Due to a new policy limiting the ability of GoodGame Agency to brand LCS teams instituted by Riot on November 21st, Alliance would have to change their brand for the 2015 season.[3]

On January 8th, it was announced that the team had re-branded as Elements.[4]
