Team ALTERNATE is a German based gaming organization that sponsors teams in League of Legends, Counter Strike: Source, Starcraft II, and racing games.
Formation of Team ALTERNATE
Team ALTERNATE began their venture into competitive League of Legends in July 25th, 2011, when they acquired Competo Sports, consisting of Forellenlord, Fisch, unso, Lycades, destruct, CedeoCedeo, and Timson.
In the following month, Team ALTERNATE would compete in the IEM Season VI - Global Challenge Cologne. Coming into the event, ALTERNATE was seeded into Group A where they would place third, going 1-2 by defeating MyRevenge, while falling to Team SoloMid and Millenium. Due to being unable to place first and second, Team ALTERNATE would not qualify for the playoffs, coming home with a 5th-6th place finish.
At the ESL Pro Series Germany Winter 2011, Team ALTERNATE would have a great showing, placing first in the tournament. Put into Group A, ALTERNATE would place second by defeating Logix and Evoplay, while falling to Team Acer. ALTERNATE would have a strong showing in the playoffs, defeating mTw.EU 2-1 in the quarterfinals and Peculiar 2-0 in the semifinals. In the grand finals, ALTERNATE would take out Team Acer 2-0 to take first place at the event.
Due to visa issues, Invictus Gaming was unable to attend the IEM Season VI - World Championship. Due to Team ALTERNATE's placing on the rankings, they were invited to replace IG. ALTERNATE was seeded into Group A where they would place fourth. Team ALTERNATE came out victorious over FnaticRC and Millenium, while losing to Dignitas, Counter Logic Gaming Prime, and against All authority. As they were unable to place in the top 3 of their group, Team ALTERNATE was eliminated after the group stage, taking home a 7th-8th place finish.
Team ALTERNATE disbanded shortly after the European Regionals. However, on September 24th, the addition of a new roster was announced as Team Eloblade officially came under the Team ALTERNATE organization. Two former players, ForellenLord and Leofromkorea, rejoined through this transfer.
The start of season 3 was pretty rough for Team alternate. After they got disqualfied from ESL_Pro_Series_Germany/Winter_2012 they lost a few sponsors and as a result couldn´t attend at IPL 5, were the qualfied as EloBlade before. In December they participated in THOR Open 2012 and placed 3rd. But they had a roster change before. Leofromkorea left the team and got replaced by Jree. A week later they attended IEM Season VII - Global Challenge Cologne, unfortunately going 0:3 in groups after losing to CJ Entus Frost, Meet Your Makers and CLG Europe, placing 7th-8th.
After they placed 1st-4th in the Season 3 European Ranked 5s Online Qualifier they headed to Warsaw in order to qualify for the European Season 3 Spring Season. Before they took part in the Season 3 Championship Series Qualifiers on 25th to 27th of January they replaced Kottenx with Araneae. They were placed in the group of death and were they lost their first game against GIANTS! Gaming, dropped in the loosers bracket. There they won against Anexis eSports and had to play a deciding match against the big favourits of Fnatic to go through to the playoffs. Unfortunately they lost.
After a period of amateur tournaments, however,
Alternate would qualify for the Season 3 Summer Split in LCS Season 3 Lille Summer Promotion Qualifier event by taking second place, losing only to Meet Your Makers. At the European LCS Summer Promotion Qualifiers, Alternate would take out Wizards e-Sports Club 2-1, then defeat GIANTS! Gaming 3-2 in a best of five series to determine who would be in the Summer LCS Season.
