Saigon Jokers is a League of Legends team based in Vietnam. They were first formed to compete in 2012 GPL Season 1. The Saigon Jokers were the first Vietnamese League of Legends team to form.


Season 2

Saigon Jokers was originally formed in April of 2012 to play in the 2012 Season GPL. SAJ started with 10 members chosen from more than 2000 candidates across Vietnam. Through out the league, they generally maintained third place overall. At the beginning of the season in the 2012 Season GPL Opening Event they placed third, defeating Kuala Lumpur Hunters 1-0.

On September 9th, 2012, the Saigon Jokers competed in the 2012 Season SEA Regional Finals for the South East Asian slot at the 2012 Season World Championship. After losing to the Singapore Sentinels in the second round they played through the Loser's Bracket, defeating the Kuala Lumpur Hunters and TNC GG.PH to eventually face theSingapore Sentinels once again in the finals. They defeated their rivals 2-1 despite starting with a one game disadvantage, securing the upset and earning themselves a place at the championship. [1]

On October 4th, 2012, the Jokers traveled to Los Angeles to participate in the 2012 Season World Championship. They were widely regarded as the clear underdogs for the event based on rankings from several writers and professionals. [2] In their first match of the group stage, they built a small early lead against NaJin Sword but were unable to convert it into a win. Their next game was played against Team Dignitas; the Jokers pulled off a huge upset, maintaining a significant gold lead throughout the game and taking the win. This set up a final match against CLG EU to decide the second team to advance from Group B. However, the Jokers failed to match the relentless farming and objective pushing of their European opponents. They finished in 9th-10th place, taking home $ 50,000.M
