Overview   History    

Jin Air Green Wings was formed when Jin Air Green Wings Falcons and Stealths merged in compliance with the LCK Rules at the end of 2014. The team's initial roster include TrAce, Chaser, Winged, GBM, Cpt Jack, Pilot, XD and Chei.

2015

In 2015 LCK Spring, the team finished 4th in the round robin stage and 4th in the playoffs, losing to CJ Entus (0-3) in the first round. In 2015 Summer, on the other hand, the team did not even make it to the playoffs, as they finished 6th with a 10W-8L standing. They, however, earned enough points to make it to the 2015 LCK Regional Qualifiers but lost against kt Rolster (1-3) in the Finals after winning against NaJin e-mFire and CJ Entus in the first and second rounds respectively.

Moving on, the team competed in the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup. But prior to this, GBM has already left the team and so Kuzan became the starting Mid Laner. In said tournament, the team finished at 5th-8th place, winning over Incredible Miracle in Round of 12 but losing against CJ Entus in the Quarterfinals. The team then played at IEM X San Jose, but their run was cut short as they lost to Counter Logic Gaming (0-2) in the Semifinals.

After IEM, Chaser and Cpt Jack left the team to join Longzhu Gaming for the 2016 Season. Winged, who was the substitute Jungler then stepped up to replace Chaser, while Pilot also became the starting AD Carry for the team.

2016

The team's results for 2016 Spring was almost the same as their 2015 results. They finished 3rd in the round robin stage but failed to make it to the Finals, as they lost to SK Telecom T1 in the 2nd round of the gauntlet after winning over Afreeca Freecs. In 2016 Summer, they did not make it to the playoffs but the team had the chance to make it to the 2016 World Championship through the Regional Qualifiers. Then again, the team failed to make it out after losing to Afreeca Freecs in the first round of the tournament. Their KeSPA Cup results did not show any improvement as well. Just like the 2015 Cup, they ended the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup at 5th-8th place, winning over Longzhu Gaming but losing against ROX Tigers.

In the off season, TrAce, Pilot, Chei, Sweet and Blanc parted ways with the team, leaving Kuzan, Winged and Teddy, who joined the team prior to KeSPA Cup, on the roster. The team then signed Raise, Team ROCCAT's former support player. However, this was followed by Winged's departure from the team. They then signed ikssu, SnowFlower and UmTi to fill the emptied spots and complete their roster for the 2017 Season.

2017

Going into 2017 Spring Split with the new roster, the team performed poorly, winning only 4 matches to place ninth in the league. Though forced to play the 2017 LCK Summer Promotion, the team came together and played well enough to beat out Ever8 Winners and Kongdoo Monster to re-qualify for the 2017 LCK Summer Season
