Dark Passage is the first professional eSports organizaton in Turkey. It was founded in 2003 as a Counter Strike team. Dark Passage formed League of Legends team in August 2012. They have also sponsors teams for CS Online, Counter Strike Global Offensive, League of Legends Female, Starcraft 2, FIFA14, Point Blank.
Dark Passage was amongst the first teams of Turkish e-Sports. Their ties extends to Sanane.Inc, an old Turkish competitive game website.
Their first team beign still unknown.(altough some speculations included their first team was formed with the future HWA Gaming players, but still not confirmed) They formed their first known League Of Legends team with Theokoles, ForTurkey, Naru , TrieLBaenRe and Rutsel. Dark Passage showed up on GameX 2012 , losing to Ancient Gaming in semi- finals, coming fourth.
After that, their League Of Legends team scrambled and reformed again. This time they didn't had Rutsel and TrieLBaenRe. After deciding to bench For Turkey as well, LongB joined and Theokoles switched to jungler instead. HolyRegi joined with Holythoth. But HolyRegi swapped with the (will be) almost legendary AD Carry, Holyphoenix. They started to win every single tournament after that. They won against HWA Gaming in 3 seperate occasions, and eventually got a shot to DreamHack Summer 2013 Qualifiers, for BYOC tournament.
In that time period between Dreamhack and Turkish Winter Finals, fabFabulous replaced LongB for the top lane spot. Dark Passage qualified with Eternity Gaming, GamingGear.eu and Druidz E-Sport Europe to Dreamhack from BYOC slots. They had a very solid group stage, qualifying with the score of 2-1 , only dropping a match agaist mousesports, defeating Copenhagen Wolves and Druidz E-Sport Europe. They got matched with Eternity Gaming in the semi-finals. They won with 2-0 , and qualified to finals against Copenhagen Wolves.
In a very dramatic match, they got defeated with the score of 2-1. But they earned some good reputation around the world and some experience as well. After their return, they eventually got matched with HWA Gaming again in the Summer Finals, defeating them with 3-0. And their "undefeateble premier tournament streak " started after that. Theokoles decided to leave, and ReostA joined for the jungle spot.
Dark Passage defeated Team Turquality BLUE , and qualified for the Gamescom 2013 International Wildcard Tournament. Holyphoenix got replaced with Lethilion, because Holyphoenix was not old enough to compete in such a major tournament due to rules.
At Gamescom, they will drop 3 games to Team Immunity, GamingGear.eu and paiN Gaming , but winning against Lyon Gaming. Despite being underdogs, they eventually been able to take a game off paiN Gaming in semi-finals, even scoring a pentakill (fabFabulous did , with his signature hero
Kha'Zix, but that wasn't enough to bring Dark Passage to Worlds. Many people criticized lots of things ;Holyphoenix's absence , Holythoth's bad performance, and Lethilion's lack of position knowledge etc.
They competed for a spot in IEM Season VIII - Cologne, but they would lose to Team Turquality RED in quarter-finals. They went for 2013 World Cyber Games instead. They selected to Group B, with only 1 noticeable opponent, OMG. Their group would play 6 games instead of 12, because Millenium got disqualified. They qualified to brackets, and eventually falled to CJ Entus Blaze.
Dark Passage started Season 4 with noticeable changes ; Crystal M replaced ReostA and TrieLBaenRe replaced Holythoth. This squad finished first in 2014 Turkish Champions League Winter Season , scoring 11-5. They would defeat HWA Gaming again at finals , with 3-0. This was their fourth win in finals against HWA Gaming.
In 2014 Turkish Champions League Spring Season, they eventually found a worthy opponent this time , Wild Fire e-Sports Club, who got the old Team Turquality BLUE squad with some changes. Two teams went toe-to-toe , finishing with the same score of 11-3. And in finals, they got matched. DP won again, with the score of 3-0.
When the Riot Season 4 Turkish Championship time came, Riot Games Turkey prepared a perfect organization, and Dark Passage suprised nobody, they won again in a match vs. Team Turquality, and became the undisputed champions of Turkey, eventually gaining a shot for Wild Card once again.
At the time period, while preparing for Wild Card, TrieLBaenRe got replaced by Touch due to passport issues. In Wild Card, they would be matched with qualifiers of Russia and Oceania, respectively.
