Formation of Taipei Snipers
January 2013, 5 of the former Taipei Assassins members, MiSTakE, NeXAbc, GoDJJ, Zonda and colalin form Taipei Snipers with a new member, OhReaL and becomes the sister team of TPA. It is the 3rd professional LOL e-sports team in Taiwan. Retty, which is the CEO of Garena Taiwan and coach of TPA, has also been the coach of TPS.
The first tournament that TPS participants is GIGABYTE StarsWar League Season 2. TPS has been distributed to the dead group, which has to face off 2 powerhouse in China, Team WE and Invictus Gaming and the winner of IEM Season VII - Global Challenge Cologne, Reapered and SK Telecom T1. TPS is doing a great job by beating SKT T1 and All Gamers. After socre a 1-1 tie to iG and Korean NaJin Shield and lose to WE, TPS get the 3rd place and drop to loser bracket. And they were beated by the OGN Winter's winner, NaJin Sword. Although they only get the 5th place, they still show the power of the new team in Taiwan.
Unlike TPA, TPS does not join Garena Premier League. They force to join the new professional tournament in Taiwan, Taiwan eSports League 2013 and play with ahq e-Sports Club and 4 new professional team in Taiwan, Wayi Spider, Gamania Bears, e-Sports Dragons Pro, yoe IRONMEN. TPS dominate the whole league by 20 wins and only 5 loses. After Toyz and Stanley leaves TPA, TPS has the high hope to go to Los Angeles and join the Season 3 World Championship.
With no surprise, TPS makes to Season 3 Taiwan Regional Finals by beating ahq and Wayi Spider. However, in the finals, they deafed by Steak and Gamania Bears. By losing 2-3 in the Grand Finals, TPS lose the ticket to Season 3.
After Season 3, 2 new members from TeSL joins TPS. Winds from Gamania Bears and Awei from Wayi Spider and it force the old members OhReaL to lose his spot in TPS. After OhReaL change his position from Jungle to Mid, NeXAbc got benched in 2014 GPL Winter. These changes help TPS to beat Mineski and Singapore Sentinels and face the sister team TPA.
Unfortunately, TPS was beaten by TPA by scoring 2-3 in GPL Winter Finals. After the matches, two of the main players in TPS left in January. NeXAbc retired and MiSTakE wanted to take a rest from e-Sports. That means the original line up of Taipei Assassins have all retired from e-Sports.
Although Taipei Snipers achieved 3rd place in 2014 GPL Spring after losing to Taipei Assassins in Semifinals and beating Saigon Jokers in 3rd place match, TPS still need to fight at the promotion stage as they are the bottom 2 teams for Taiwan representatives with yoe Flash Wolves. At the promotion stage, TPS lost to Machi E-Sports who is an amateur team while yoe Flash Wolves lost to ahq Fighter who is secondary team of ahq e-sports. These made TPS cannot advance to 2014 GPL Summer unfortunately. Moreover, tactical caller Winds transferred to Taipei Assassins making TPS being asunder.
Unable to compete in 2014 GPL Summer, however, TPS still had chance to have the ticket to Worlds, thanks for the places they had in the past two GPL tournaments. They acquired Mountain from yoe Flash Wolves as the new jungler. TPS then faced against Saigon Fantastic Five in 2014 Season Garena Regional Finals but lost 3-2, alhough they won the first 2 games; and failed to going to World Championship second time.
