Albus NoX is a Russian esports organization formed in May 2016. Their League of Legends roster were formerly known as Hard Random.

History

Season 6

Albus NoX Luna was announced on May 24, 2016, as the new name of Hard Random.[1] They inherited Hard Random's LCL Summer Season seed. The change happened between the Spring and Summer Split, after the team's loss against SuperMassive eSports in the Finals series of the 2016 International Wildcard Invitational.

The team kept up their two-year long record of domestic dominance, handily placing first in the Regular Season with an almost perfect 13-1 best-of-one record. They then chose to face third place team RoX in the Playoffs Semifinals, advancing to the Finals with a 3-0 victory. There they faced Vega Squadron and reestablished themselves as the CIS region champions in an hard fought 3-2 reverse sweep. For the fourth time in the organization's history, the first as Albus NoX, they joined an International Wildcard event as representatives of the region.

The team went on to place third in the Round Robin stage of the 2016 International Wildcard Qualifier and accessed the Bracket Stage, where they faced the Tournament's favorite Lyon Gaming. The LAN team had previously defeated all other teams in the Group Stage and was considered by many the most mechanically gifted roster at the event, but the CIS squad won the series 3-2 and qualified for their first ever major international event, the 2016 Season World Championship.

Albus NoX was drafted into Group A, together with Korean first seed ROX Tigers, European first seed G2 Esports and North American second seed Counter Logic Gaming. Despite being widely predicted to be one of the worst of the sixteen teams at the World Championship, Albus NoX finished groups with a 4-2 record and the most wins ever earned by a wildcard at Worlds. Although they lost a tiebreaker against ROX for first in the group, the CIS team also became the first wildcard team to ever qualify for the quarterfinals at Worlds. In the process, they also qualified for the IEM World Championship in Katowice and became the first team with a roster entirely from the Commonwealth of Independent States since Gambit Gaming in 2013 to place in the Top 8 at Worlds. Their first international adventure came to an end at their first Best-of-Five series, as they suffered a 0-3 loss against H2k-Gaming; however, their inspiring performances and words brought them fans and recognition both in the CIS and international scene.
