CJ ENTUS 2016 SUMMER.png

CJ Entus is a Korean multi-gaming organization originally founded in 2001 under the name "ProSuma" as a StarCraft: Brood War team before Korean holding company CJ became its title sponsor in 2006, giving the team its current name. It entered League of Legends in 2012 with its own team and then acquired both Azubu Frost and Azubu Blaze in 2013 after both teams' rosters announced they would not be renewing their Azubu contracts.

History

Season 2

CJ Entus made its first foray into the competitive scene when they formed a team that consisted of Pecko, LongPanda, Kkinsh, emboob, Eryuk. The team played in their first OGN at Azubu The Champions Summer 2012 where they lost all their games and placed last in their group. Their performances in NLB gained them enough circuit points to qualify for the Season 2 Korea Regional Finals. However, they lost in the fifth place tiebreaker 3-1 to Incredible Miracle.

Season 3

CJ's first tournament of the season was IEM Season VII - Global Challenge Cologne where they made it to the semifinals but lost 2-1 to Fnatic. They came back to Korea to play in OLYMPUS Champions Winter 2012-2013 where they lost 3-2 in the quarterfinals to Azubu Frost. The CJ organization sponsored Azubu Frost and Azubu Blaze and they were renamed to CJ Entus Frost and CJ Entus Blaze respectively. When both teams were picked up by CJ, the original CJ Entus team disbanded. A mixed CJ Entus roster participated in the OGN Club Masters where they made it to playoffs but placed fourth overall after losing 3-2 to Xenics-OP United and 3-0 to KT Rolster. Unfortunately, both CJ teams missed worlds at the end of the season. However, they earned the distinction of making the IEM Season VII World Championship grand finals an all-CJ final, which Blaze won 3-1.

2014 Season

Another mixed CJ Entus roster participated in the SK Telecom LTE-A LoL Masters 2014 where they placed third overall after losing to Samsung Galaxy in the semifinals. Neither of the CJ teams performed well in any of the 2014 OGN seasons, so both teams missed the regionals and, by extension, worlds.

2015 Season

Changes to the OGN rules forced Frost and Blaze to merge. The new roster consisted of Shy, Ambition, CoCo, Space, and Madlife. CJ Entus were invited to IEM Katowice, the IEM Season IX final in March 2015. They finished in 5th/6th place, after defeating Gambit Gaming but then losing to Team SoloMid and Team WE. CJ placed third in the regular season of SBENU Champions Spring 2015 and made it to the playoffs but they lost 3-2 in the semifinals to SK Telecom T1 and placed third for the season. The team played in SBENU Champions Summer 2015 and placed third in the regular season again. However, they lost 3-0 in the second round to the KOO Tigers and placed fourth for the season. CJ earned enough circuit points to qualify for the 2015 Season Korea Regional Finals where they lost 3-2 in the semifinals to the Jin Air Green Wings and missed out on worlds.

2016 Preseason

CJ played in the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup where they lost 3-0 in the finals to Ever. After this tournament, CJ embarked on a major rebuilding, replacing their entire coaching staff as well as their entire roster save for longtime veterans Shy and Madlife. To replace their team, CJ brought in toplaner Untara, jungler Bubbling, midlaner Sky, and ADC Kramer, as well as retaining their underage rookies Bdd and Ghost. Filling in their coaching staff was Reach and Cain, both formerly of NaJin e-mFire.

2016 Season

CJ started off the 2016 LCK Spring Season first round robin with a 4-5 set record at seventh place. For the second round robin, CJ started rookie midlaner Bdd, who recently turned 17 years of age, making him eligible to play competitively. Though many expected CJ to perform better due to Bdd, they still went 4-5 in the second round robin, leading to an 8-10 set record and an eighth place finish in the spring split.

CJ Entus had a very poor showing in the 2016 LCK Summer Season, going 3-15 total in set score. None of their substitutes, nor their new rookie jungler in Haru seemed to make a difference in their abysmal results. Locked into tenth place in the LCK season, CJ Entus participated in the 2017 LCK Spring Promotion. In the first round they were swept 2-0 by Kongdoo Monster, bringing them down to the loser's bracket. There, they beat SBENU Korea 2-0 before falling to ESC Ever in a 3-0 sweep to become relegated from the LCK. This marked the first time an original Kespa team was relegated from the LCK.

For their first split in the Challenger scene they decided to build a new roster and tried out 3 new players at 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup. With this roster they were not able to take revenge against ESC Ever and instead got expectedly 0-2 swept. While Soul who was on SBENU during S6 got a place on the roster for next season Reach and Momo had to leave again.

2017 Season

They went for a decently experienced squad with Winged from Jin Air, Veritas returning to Korea from EU LCS team Unicorns of Love, former Longzhu support Pure and decided to give Candy his chance after his suspension ended. This roster went on an absolute tear during the first half of Spring Split before dropping a few games towards the end but stay undefeated in series. In playoff finals they faced Ever8 Winners and after winning game 1 they got surprisingly dismantled for the remainder of the series but qualified to the promotion tournament anyways.

There they faced Kongdoo in round 1 and lost the series 1-2 despite a strong performance in game 1. In the elimination match they faced E8W again and were once again left without a chance which meant a second split in Challenger for them.

CJ Entus went into Summer Split as a favourite because they only changed their coach but kept the roster together and once again absolutely dominated in regular season. They ended this time with a 13-1 record clean sweeping their opponents in every win. This first place meant that they were already qualified for the promotion tournament as well as the playoff finals. There they faced Kongdoo who finished 2nd in regular season and after 4 very one-sided game the game back from the brink of another finals defeat to ace their opponents 49 minutes into game 5 and pushed through for the victory.

In the Spring Promotion they faced bbq Olivers in round 1 where they once again had a good game 1 but were destroyed in the next 2 games not even killing a single tower. In elimination round they met E8W again and turned the series with a slow victory in game 2 before dominating game 3 to face bbq for a rematch in the second qualifying round. They were once again shut down and after failing to get back into LCK for the second time the team disbanded in November 2017.
