== History ==
===Pre Launch===
SK Gaming was the first major organization to acquire a SMITE team, first acquiring a team in 2012, during the game's closed beta.<!--include initial roster here if possible--> Accomplishing excellent results in online play, the team was able to continue that success in their first major LAN when they took 2nd at the [[Gamescom 2013 InvitationInvitational]], narrowly losing to [[Cognitive COGnitive EU]] 2-1 in a best-of-3 grand finals. In November, the team hit a standstill when team captain, [[Psiyo]], decided to step down from his leadership role.<ref></ref> The team decided to leave the organization, and started their own team, [[Azzur]].
In February, the organization decided to pick up [[TeamQ]],<!--again include roster if you can--> who were seen as serious contenders to place highly in the consisting of [[Realzx]], [[CaptainTwig]], [[Badgah]], [[enQu]], and [[SMITE Launch TournamentprOxyQQ]]. <ref></ref> After qualifying as the 3rd seed from Europe, the team went on to place 4th in the Launch Tournament, as they fell to [[Team Dignitas]] in the losers bracket.
===Season 1===
After the Launch Tournament, [[EnQuenQu]] left the team and join [[Cloud9Cloud 9]], while [[proxyQQprOxyQQ]] wanted to leave the jungle and so left the team to be a free agent. SK filled their open spots with two players who had very minimal competitive experience: [[Zyrhoes]] joined as the new jungler, while [[ManiaKK]] took over in the solo lane. After a rough regular season, the team was forced into the [[EU SMITE Pro League/Season 1/Europe/Wildcards]],<!--this probably needs a more specific name, write it as [[more specific name|EU Wildcards]]--> , from which they qualified with a first-place finish to the [[SMITE Pro League/Season 1 EU Regional Championship/Europe/Regionals|Regional Championship]]. At the Regional Championship, SK Gaming finished second and qualified for the [[SMITE World Championship2015]].
The team went on to beat both [[We Love Bacon]] from Brazil, and [[Cognitive COGnitive Red]] to advance to the SWC semifinals. before falling to [[Titan eSports]] and then [[Cognitive COGnitive Red]], both with 0-2 records.
===Season 2===
After taking 4th in the [[SMITE World Championship]], the team chose to make a role swap and move [[CaptainTwig]] into the jungle and put [[Zyrhoes]] into the mid lane.  On March 7th the roster of SK was acquired by [[Fnatic]].
===Season 5===
On January 10th, 2018, the SPL announced that SK Gaming would acquire a spot in the Season 5 SPL, which would follow a more franchise-style program than previous seasons. A month later, SK announced that they acquired the roster of {{bl|Valance Squad}}, and in a surprise twist, brought back long time player {{bl|Badgah}} to play support, as the team dumped their provious support two months ealrier.
