The Sypher League of Legends team was created in 2011. They first came to prominence at IEM New York where they placed third overall.


Formation of Sypher

Team Sypher's League of Legends team was first formed on June 19th of 2011, when Sypher acquired the roster of Avec Le Style, consisting of JothY, Arcagod, Vinc3d, Nervous, and Skyyart.

Pre-Season 2

In October of 2011, Sypher would participate in the IEM Season VI - Global Challenge New York. Placed into Group B, Sypher would take second going 2-1, defeating Curse Gaming and v8 Esports while falling to SK Gaming. Advancing to the playoffs, Sypher would fall to FnaticRC in the semifinals, being knocked out of contention for first place and falling to play in the third place match. There, Sypher would take out Counter Logic Gaming Prime 2-1 to solidify their third place finish.

The coming months would mark the departure of two of Sypher's staple players, with ALth0r and JothY leaving on October 26th and November 11th, respectively.

Season 2

Due to visa issues with Invictus Gaming, Sypher would be invited to partake in the IEM Season VI - Global Challenge Kiev. Unfortunately, Sypher would be knocked out very early in the tournament, taking fourth place in the group stage, falling to against All authority, Dignitas, and Moscow Five. Due to being unable to place top 2 in the tournament, Sypher would take home a disappointing last place finish.

Eleven days after the event, Sypher would be invited to participate in the Kings of Europe tournament. Placed into Group B, Sypher would take second place by eliminating against All authority and FnaticRC while falling to Counter Logic Gaming EU. Despite their moderate success in the gorup stage, Sypher would fall to Moscow Five 1-2 in the semifinals and Team Mistral 1-2 in the 3rd place match, ending the tournament with a fourth place finish.

On February 28th of 2012, Sypher would undergo some roster changes with Pyri departing from the team and Lyumi joining to fill the spot.

With their new lineup, Sypher would participate in the IEM Season VI - World Championship. Disappointingly, Sypher would place 5th in the group stage going 1-4, falling to Moscow Five, SK Gaming, Curse Gaming, and Team SoloMid, pulling out their only victory over eHome. Due to placing fifth in the group stage, Team Sypher would take 9th-10th place at the event.

Over the next few months, Sypher's roster would undergo more changes, first with ShLaYa leaving to be replaced by Kikis. On April 1st, team captain and founding member Skyyart would leave the team. Four days later, ImSoFresh would join the team.

With their new lineup, Team Sypher would take first at the Gamers Assembly 2012. In the event, Team Sypher would most notably defeat Natus Vincere, Counter Logic Gaming EU, and Absolute Legends twice, both in the winner bracket finals and the grand finals of the tournament. Sypher would show a dominant performance, not once falling to the loser's bracket the entire tournament.

Despite their strong showing at Gamers Assembly, ImSoFresh would leave the team ten days later. To fill his spot, Sypher would add hyrqBot on April 27th of 2012. Not long after, Kikis would depart from the team, joining exHCL Gaming.
