Qiao Gu Reapers is a Chinese team founded in 2015.

History

2015
Qiao Gu Reapers' first tournament appearance went well. The team finished 3rd in the 2015 Demacia Cup Spring Season, losing to Team WE 2:3 in the 3rd place match. Qiao Gu managed to get 1st place in the 2015 LSPL Spring Playoffs, defeating Vici Potential Gaming 3:1 in the finals and auto-qualifying for the Summer Split LPL. The team had an impressive first split in the LPL, finishing in 2nd place during the regular season with 7 wins, 14 draws and only 1 loss. In the playoffs, Qiao Gu was able to reach 2nd place only falling to LGD Gaming 2:3 in the finals. This meant that they had to play in the 2015 Regional Qualifiers for a chance to qualify to Worlds. Invictus Gaming proved to be Qiao Gu's undoing, defeating them 2:0 in Round 1 and 3:0 in the Loser's Bracket. As a result of this, Qiao Gu was unable to qualify for the 2015 World Championship.

Despite not qualifying for Worlds, Qiao Gu attended IEM Season X - Cologne and defeated Team Dignitas and Fnatic to reach the finals. They would however lose to a surging Ever 2:3 in the finals, ending their run at the tournament in 2nd place. Soon after the event, the team was picked up by Newbee but they would remain as Qiao Gu Reapers instead of re-branding.

2016

QG went on to attend the IEM Season X - World Championship but had a poor showing, falling to Fnatic 1:2 in Round 2 of the Loser's Bracket and finishing 5th/6th. The 2016 Season of the LPL started well for Qiao Gu. They went undefeated in the first 4 weeks of play winning 7 Bo3 matches and only dropped a single game. The remaining 6 weeks didn't go as well for them as they lost 5 series matches and only won 4. Despite their poor second half of the regular season, the team still finished 1st in their group and was automatically placed in the Semifinals. Their playoff run would not last long however. Qiao Gu was plagued with internal conflict and it was reported Doinb had problems with fellow teammate Swift. The team tried to bring back Dade to their line-up and play with him as starting mid laner but this was denied by the League of Legends Association of Chinese Esports. With their substitute mid laner Mortred suffering a hand injury and their other mid laner Borisal being unable to attend, Qiao Gu forfeited their Semifinal match vs EDG due to being unable to field a mid laner. The team was able to play in the 3rd place match with Peco as starting mid laner but they were swept 0:3 by Team WE.[1]

The team would then re-brand to Newbee for the Summer Split. In the off-season after Newbee Young qualified for the LPL, they re-branded their team to the Qiao Gu Reapers in order to compete in the 2017 LPL Season.
