Team Coast, formerly known as Good Game University, is a North American competitive League of Legends team. The squad was formed on January 4th, 2013 by the former roster of Team Dynamic following their departure from the parent organization. They were self-founded as Good Game University before changing their name to Team Coast on June 1st, 2013. Their first offline tournament was the League of Legends Season 3 North American qualifiers where they successfully qualified for a spot in the Season 3 League Championship Series (LCS).

History

Creation of Good Game University

On January 4th, 2013, Good Game University was founded by the former roster of Team Dynamic following their departure from the parent multi-gaming organization. ZionSpartan, NintendudeX, DontMashMe, Shiphtur, I am Anjo, and Pixel joined the team.

Season 3

In January 2013, Good Game University competed in the North American LCS Qualifier. In the group stage, Good Game University beat Epik Gamer and Team TowerDiveTV, while dropping one game to Team FeaR. By winning those two games, GGU advanced to day two of the event where they would defeat Dirtnap Gaming and secure their spot in the Spring Split of the NA LCS.

Good Game University's mid lane player, Shiphtur, was unable to play in the LCS due to Visa issues. With substitute player Jintae, GGU opened the season poorly, going 2-12 with a seven game losing streak. However, with the acquisition of Daydreamin, GGU turned their season around and finished sixth at 11-17 in the Spring Split, securing their spot in the NA LCS Spring Playoffs. In the quarterfinals of the playoffs, GGU defeated Dignitas 2-1, advancing them to the semifinals, where they beat Team Curse 2-1. With those two victories under their belt, GGU advanced to the finals, where they faced off against Team Solomid. Although Team Solomid won 3-2, Good Game University secured their spot in the NA LCS Summer Season.

After finishing the spring split at second place in the playoffs, the team renamed to Team Coast, their new sponsor. Additionally, ex-Curse Gaming support player Elementz became their coach. Shiphtur's visa issues were resolved, and he was able to play mid for Team Coast in the summer LCS season, replacing Jintae.

The NA LCS Summer Season was rough for Team Coast. They began the season tied for second during Week One, but thanks to a seven-game losing streak at the end of the split, Coast had to settle for seventh with a record of 9-19. This meant they would be sent to relegation matches in December to win back their spot into the league for the Season 4 Spring Promotion.

Pre-Season 4

In the offseason, Team Coast was invited to some amateur scene events, winning ggLA Challenger Arena 5 and then earning a spot onto the new competitive league, the North American Challenger League (NACL). During the first week of the NACL, on October 8th, 2013, DontMashMe announced that he had stepped down from his starter AD position.[1] On November 26th, WizFujiiN joined as the new starting AD.

In December, Coast revealed that they would compete with challenger team The Walking Zed for a spot in the Season 4 Spring Split North American LCS at the Spring Promotion tournament. There, Coast would prevail 3-2 and receive a spot in their third LCS split, the Season 4 Spring Split.

Season 4

Team Coast finished sixth at the 2014 NA LCS Spring Playoffs after losing 2-0 to CLG and then 2-1 to Team Dignitas. The team was then relegated to the 2014 Summer Promotion Tournament, along with XDG Gaming and Evil Geniuses. Despite being favorited to win its series against compLexity.Black, having the best spring season record of the three teams facing relegation, and facing arguably the weakest of the three competing challenger teams, Coast lost 1-3 and with it lost its place in the LCS. Mid laner Shiphtur and top laner ZionSpartan quickly departed the team for warmer waters with Team Dignitas, while jungler NintendudeX stepped down to a substitute position.

In June 2014, Coast announced a new starting roster, consisting mainly of experienced free agents. AD carry Dontmashme rejoined the team with renewed LCS aspirations, replacing WizFujiiN. Their new support player Sheep, had some LCS experience with XDG Gaming, along with mid laner Goldenglue with Team Dignitas and top laner Rhux with Team Curse. The only player without LCS experience, jungler Santorin, had been a substitute for top-ranked challenger team Cloud 9 Eclipse in Europe. Lastly, Coast hired on Chaox, Season 2 star of Team SoloMid, as a coach.

As a recently relegated team, Coast was entered to compete in the 2014 NA Challenger Series (NACS). With series against Team Green Forest, Curse Academy, and Team LoLPro, Coast took first place with an overall 6-1 record. In July, in the second NACS of 2014, Coast again took first with series wins against Denial eSports, Team 8, and Curse Academy, with an undefeated 6-0 sweep. With two NACS titles at their back, Coast entered the August playoffs with high hopes and a first round bye, only to be swept in the semifinals by Team 8. Without letting their negative momentum continue, Coast defeated Team LoLPro in the third place match and took home $8,000 USD.
