| Team History|
Apollo "Apollo" Price, originally known as WizFujiiN, got his competitive start in League of Legends with Team Summon in 2013 but did not rise to prominence until later that year, when Team Coast added him to their roster after considering several other try-out candidates, including Chaox. Coast had placed seventh in the 2013 Summer Split, but they successfully re-qualified in relegations, defeating The Walking Zed 3-2.
WizFujiiN played with Coast in the 2014 NA LCS Spring Split, but after a 6th-place finish sent them to the relegations once again, they were eliminated from the LCS by compLexity Black, losing 3 games to 1. WizFujiiN later left the team. He briefly played with GamesterGear before attempting to qualify for the LCS once again.
With teammates Flaresz, Thinkcard, Yusui, and KEITHMCBRIEF on Team LoLPro, WizFujiiN qualified for the Spring Expansion Tournament via the ranked 5's ladder. The team beat Team Fission in the first round 2-0 but then lost 0-2 to Team Coast in the second round.
After using Rhux as a substitute for Impact in the first week, Team Impulse finished the round robin with an 11-7 record, in fourth place. In the playoffs, they defeated Gravity before losing to Team SoloMid and then Team Liquid, placing fourth overall. In the summer season, Team Impulse started shakily, placing no higher than sixth through the end of the fifth week. Starting in the sixth week, the team went on a massive winning streak, which was almost able to continue through two roster changes: first, support Adrian sat out one game and was replaced by Gate; and second, mid laner XiaoWeiXiao was suspended pending an investigation into Elo boosting prior to the ninth week, prompting Adrian to return and Gate to move back to his primary role of mid lane to replace XiaoWeiXiao. This temporary suspension was eventually lengthened to a competitive ban until February 2016. Regardless, Team Impulse finished the last week tied for third place with Gravity and then won their tiebreaker game.
In the summer playoffs, the team beat Dignitas 3-0 before losing to both Counter Logic Gaming and Team Liquid to finish fourth, leaving them with the second-place spot in the Regional Final due to Championship Points. There, they became the second team in a row to fall to underdogs Cloud9 in a reverse sweep and so fell short of the World Championship.
Following two 1-1 weeks in the season's spring split, Smittyj was removed from the team's starting roster and replaced by BillyBoss, due to "behavioural issues". The team's worst-ever split unfolded following this change, as they saw only two further wins and – after playing the longest game of the split – finished 10th place with a 4-14 record. The same roster played in the Summer Promotion tournament, where they lost 0-3 to Team Dragon Knights, resulting in their elimination from the LCS. This made Dignitas the first of the three original North American LCS invitee teams to be relegated from the competition.
Apex started out the split strong, with a 2-0 first week including a 2-1 upset of reigning NA LCS champions and MSI alums CLG. Their success, however, was short-lived, and by week 5 they were in 7th place, where they remained for the rest of the season, out of reach of the playoffs but also safe from relegations for the 2017 Spring Season. In September, both Team Dignitas and Apex were acquired by the Philadelphia 76ers in September 2016, to play under the Dignitas name.
EnVyUs' 2017 Season started off very rough. In the Spring Season they performed badly and lost a lot of games. Their 9th place finish in the regular season meant that they had to fight for their LCS spot in the 2017 Summer Promotion Tournament. After a 3-2 victory over Gold Coin United, Team EnVyUs got to keep their spot. Their Summer Season was noticeably better and they finished in 6th place with 8 wins and 10 losses. However in the playoffs they were defeated 2-3 in a close Quarterfinals series by Counter Logic Gaming. This would end their 2017 season as the team didn't have enough Championship Points to attend the Regional Qualifiers. The team was not accepted into the newly franchised NA LCS in 2018. Following this Apollo left the team in November and a month later joined the newly formed Clutch Gaming.
