Origen is a Spanish League of Legends team, founded by Enrique "xPeke" Cedeño Martínez.
Origen was founded by xPeke in 2014 after he left Fnatic. The roster he picked up personally to play alongside him was Niels, Mithy, sOAZ and Amazing. The team defeated Millenium in the 2015 EU CS Spring Qualifier. They managed to perform extremely well in the 2015 EU CS Spring Split finishing with a 9-1 record. In the 2015 EU CS Spring Playoffs, Origen finished in 1st place after defeating Reason Gaming in the Semifinals and Copenhagen Wolves Academy in the finals. This qualified Origen for the 2015 EU LCS Summer Split.
During the Summer Split, Origen was fighting with H2k-Gaming for the 2nd place spot. Fnatic went on to finish undefeated in the regular season with an 18-0 record, making it impossible for Origen to finish 1st. This however didn't stop the squad from finishing 2nd in their first ever LCS split as a team. Their success continued in the 2015 EU LCS Summer Playoffs where they defeated H2K 3-1 in the Semifinals. The team fell 2-3 to Fnatic in the finals but managed to hand them their only two losses of the Summer Split. Despite their impressive first split, the team didn't earn enough Championship Point and had to play in the 2015 EU LCS Regional Qualifier, where they defeated Team ROCCAT in the 2nd round and Unicorns of Love in the third round. This qualified Origen for the 2015 World Championship as Europe's 3rd seed.At Worlds, Origen was drawn into Group D along with KT Rolster, LGD Gaming and Team SoloMid. They finished the group with a 4-2 record only dropping a game to LGD and KT. Despite knocking out the Flash Wolves 3-1 in the Quarterfinals, Origen was defeated by SK Telecom T1 in the Semifinals with a 3-0 sweep.
Prior to the start of the 2016 Season, there were rumors of xPeke retiring. They were later proven wrong as Origen announced a 6 man roster with the addition of PowerOfEvil to their roster. The team's debut with PowerOfEvil in the mid lane was at IEM Season X/San Jose. The team went on to defeat Team SoloMid and Counter Logic Gaming to win the event. This was the first international tournament that Origen won. The team returned to Europe for the 2016 EU LCS Spring Split and despite critics and analysts having high expectations for them, they finished in 4th place with an 11-7 record.
In Summer, Origen underwent roster changes due to the departure of Zven and Mithy, who were then replaced by FORG1VEN and Hybrid. After playing 4 games, FORG1VEN left the team and xPeke had to step in to fill his spot. The team finished the round robin stage at 9th place with a 2-8-8 standing. This dropped them down to the Promotion Tournament and forfeited the Championship Points they earned from Spring. Fortunately, they were able to re-qualify for the 2017 Season after beating Misfits (3-2).
In the off season, Hybrid left the team. This was then followed by 2 of the remaining members of the original roster, sOAZ and Amazing. Origen then announced that the team will conduct tryouts for their new roster. One month after, PowerOfEvil left as well. This required the team to rebuilt their roster from scratch.
