Samsung Galaxy is a Korean a professional gaming team based in South Korea, part of KeSPA. The organization previously sponsored two sister teams, Samsung White and Samsung Blue.

History

Samsung initially acquired the rosters of MVP Ozone and MVP Blue in September 2013 and held those two sister teams competing in the Korean circuit from then until September 2014. The organization competed in the Masters 2014 tournament, finishing second in the round robin and then beating CJ Entus 2-0 and SK Telecom T1 3-0 to win the tournament. With that victory and both Samsung White and Samsung Blue placing well in multiple seasons of Champions and qualifying for Worlds in 2014, with White winning, the Samsung organization was recognized as one of the strongest in the history of OGN Champions, considering the strength of both of its teams.

When KeSPA announced their new format for OGN and the prohibition against one organization holding multiple rosters, Samsung released all of its players on both rosters. The team was invited to compete in 2015 LCK Preseason Spring. On December 2nd, 2014 a preliminary roster for that tournament was announced, including CuVee, Eve, BlisS, Fury, and Wraith[1]

Season 5
With the new roster, Samsung finished 2015 LCK Spring in 8th place and 7th in the Summer Split. The team also ended at 9th-14th in the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup. In the off season, Ambition and CoreJJ joined the team followed by the release of its previous roster, Eve, Ace, Bliss, Fury and Luna.

Ambition will be the starting Jungler for the team in 2016 LCK Spring, while CoreJJ is the AD Carry.

Season 6
In 2016 LCK Spring, the team finished 6th and although they did not make it to the playoffs, they were able to secure a spot for themselves in the Summer Split. Prior to the start of the 2nd split, the team added Ruler to the roster, a rookie ADC that will replace CoreJJ, while CoreJJ will move to Support position and Wraith to Sub.

Come 2016 LCK Summer, the team ended the round robin stage at 4th place. Qualifying to the playoffs, they were seeded in the Wildcard round of the gauntlet, where they won against Afreeca Freecs. Unfortunately, the team lost in the 2nd round against KT Rolster, thus ending their run at 4th place. Samsung, however, has earned enough points to secure themselves a spot in the 2016 LCK Regional Qualifiers, where they beat Afreeca Freecs in the 2nd round and KT Rolster in the Finals, taking the #3 seed for the Korean region in the 2016 World Championship.

At Worlds, Samsung came out of Group D as the #1 seed with Royal Never Give Up at #2, leaving both Team SoloMid and Splyce behind. In the knockout stage, they were seeded against NA LCS' #3 seed Cloud9, whom they defeated. Advancing to the Semifinals, Samsung faced Europe's 2nd seed H2k-Gaming and defeated said team as well, propelling their way to the Finals where they faced SK Telecom T1. Their series with SKT went to 5 games but Samsung were unable to overpower the now 3-time World Champions, ending their run at 2nd place.

Prior to the end of the season, Samsung also played in the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup where they finished at 5th-8th and at IEM Gyeonggi where they finished 1st and qualified for IEM XI World Championship.

During the off season, Samsung did not make much changes to their lineup. Aside from the Helper who decided to part ways with the team, the organization renewed the contracts of all its players with the addition of Haru as substitute Jungler and TrAce as coach, the team will be fielding the same roster in 2017 LCK Spring Split.
