Afreeca Freecs (Korean: 아프리카 프릭스) is a Korean team.

History

Afreeca Freecs was announced on December 29, 2015, as the new name of Rebels Anarchy, with streaming platform Afreeca now as their title sponsor.[1] They retained Anarchy's seed into the 2016 LCK Spring Split.

2016 Season

The Afreeca Freecs started the 2016 LCK Spring Split as a bottom three team, losing many of their sets during the first round robin. This changed after their 2-1 upset over SK Telecom T1 in Week 6, which marked the start of a streak of wins that resulted in an exceptional second round robin where they went 7-2 in sets and cliched the final, fifth playoff spot in what many labeled as a "Cinderella Story." Unfortunately, during the first round of the 2016 LCK Spring Playoffs, they lost 2-0 to the Jin Air Green Wings, giving them fifth place overall for spring.

During the 2016 LCK Summer Split, the Afreeca Freecs went 8-10 in series. Notably, they beat reigning LCK champions SK Telecom T1 2-0 in series perfectly with a 4-0 game score. This was enough to earn them fifth place in the regular season and a spot in the first round of the 2016 LCK Summer Playoffs. In the first round, the Freecs met Samsung Galaxy, who beat them 2-0, earning the Freecs fifth place overall for the split. Their accumulated points earned them a spot in the first round of the 2016 Season Korea Regional Finals, where they beat the Jin Air Green Wings 3-2 before losing to Samsung Galaxy 3-1 in a rematch.

2017 Season

Spring Split

Going into the 2017 Season Afreeca built a completely new roster. They signed MaRin who returned from China, Spirit after his disappointing spell in Europe with Fnatic, kurO from ROX Tigers, Kramer of the relegated CJ Entus and free agent TuSin for their starting roster and in Mowgli a rookie jungle as substitute. They finished the Spring Split after consistent but not great performances with a 10-8 record in 4th place. In playoffs however they lost in round 1 against 5th seed MVP.

Summer Split

Despite another early playoff exit Afreeca decided to stick with their roster and ended the Summer Split with a 10-8 record yet again in 5th place. They faced SKT in round 1 of playoffs who despite being 4th seed had a much better regular season and were expectedly clean swept. Their two 5th place finishes were enough for them to secure a place in Regional Finals where they entered as 4th seed. After a surprisingly close 3-2 victory over MVP where they barely avoided getting reverse swept they went up 2-0 against eventual world champions Samsung Galaxy as well but were reverse swept by them.

Kespa Cup

For the 2017 LoL KeSPA Cup Afreeca were seeded directly into the qualifying round where they faced off against Challenger team Griffin and were surprisingly swept 0-2.

2018 Season

Spring Split

Going into the 2018 Season Afreeca replaced MaRin with talented toplaner Kiin from Ever8 Winners and also signed another AD carry in Aiming. After a really good split with many good performances by especially TuSin and kurO they finished the Spring Split with a 13-5 record in 2nd place which already meant their highest playoff finish ever. In semifinals they faced KT Rolster who had a 13-5 regular season record as well and managed to win the series 3-1 before getting dominated in finals by Kingzone DragonX who were absolutely outstanding this split.

Summer Split

After that success they once again kept the roster for Summer Split. This time Aiming got a lot more of time onstage because he adapted better to the meta changes but that did not stop them from having a great start. After a mediocre performance at Rift Rivals where LCK finished second behind LPL Afreeca fell off in the league a bit and finished the regular season with a another 10-8 record in 5th place. They came into playoffs as clear underdogs as the other participants all had a 13-5 match record. In round 1 they swept Gen.G to face Kingzone in round 2. They managed to get their revenge against them by winning the series convincingly 3-1 but lost in a hard fought series against newcomers Griffin in semifinals. This earned them another 70 championship points which was barely enough to directly qualify for the World Championship as LCK’s 2nd seed

World Championship

As one of 8 pool 2 seed they were drawn into group A with LMS 1st seed Flash Wolves, EU LCS 3rd seed G2 Esports, and VCS representative Phong Vu Buffalo. After losing their games against G2 and FW on the first 2 days they were under immense pressure to not become the first korean team to get knocked out of Worlds in the group stage in quite a while but they managed to deal with it well and won their 3rd week 1 game again PVB as well as all 3 games in week 2 to go into quarterfinals as first seed of their group. They were drawn into the likely weaker side of the bracket and faced NA LCS 3rd seed Cloud 9 in quarterfinals. C9 had a similar group stage as them coming back from a 1-2 start in week 1 as well but managed to carry their form forward and won the series in a clean sweep. This was not completely embarassing but still very disappointing for the korean fans and the team themselves.

Kespa Cup

For the 2018 LoL KeSPA Cup Afreeca with their new roster were seeded directly into round 1 of playoffs where they faced off once more against Griffin and were this time unsurprisingly swept again.

2019 Season

Spring Split

Going into the 2019 Season Afreeca lost TuSin, Mowgli, and kurO and decided to release Kramer. As replacements Afreeca signed Dread,Ucal from KT, and Jelly. During the split they also brought in SSUN, Senan, SSol, Proud, and Brook. Their started swapping roles around quite a bit at the start of the season to replace Spirit who was struggling in the jungle but realized that they seem to need his experience and shotcalling in this roster. This lead to a bad start to the Spring Split and after excluding Spirit from the roster completely they tried out lots of roster variations without finding success. They ended the split with a 5-13 record in 8th place barely avoiding to drop into the promotion tournament.
