Alliance is a professional gaming organization formed in April 2013 and announced their first League of Legends team in December 2013.

The team currently competes under the name Alliance HyperX, in representation of their sponsor Kingston HyperX.

History

After Evil Geniuses failed to qualify for the 2013 season World Championships, Mid laner Henrik "Froggen" Hansen decided to leave and make his own team, rumored as the "Super Team", and after trying out many players he settled on the following roster: former Top laner, Mike "Wickd" Petersen, former Lemondogs AD, Erik "Tabzz" van Helvert, and former Copenhagen Wolves Jungler, Ilyas "Shook" Hartsema. [1] After winning their Battle of the Atlantic match versus Dignitas they rounded out their team with former SK Gaming Support, Patrick "Nyph" Funke. [2]

The only player that had been secured from the get-go was Shook, as Froggen really wanted to play with him. Other players that were considered or tried out were Aleš "Freeze" Kněžínek, Edward "Edward" Abgaryan, Martin "Kazmitch" Hamalčík, Kevin "Kev1n" Rubiszewski and Jesper "Jwaow" Strandgren. [3]

The team acquired Evil Geniuses's spot in the European LCS and so they could start in the 2014 EU LCS Spring Split. After all the hype that had been built around them they initially didn't deliver, bringing inconsistent team play to the stage. They found their footing and learned each other's style of play and managed to finish the Spring Split in fourth place, automatically qualifying for the 2014 EU LCS Summer Split.

They would go on to be number one of the Summer Split all split long and finish the season first. In the Riot_League_Championship_Series/Europe/2014_Season/Summer_Playoffs they beat Fnatic and became the first team to ever take a spring title from them.

They went into the World Championships as the number one seed from Europe, in the Group D that included, as well, Cloud 9, NaJin White Shield and KaBuM!_e-Sports.
