Ember is a North American Challenger team.

History

Ember was formed in December 2015, when a new organization called Team Elemental acquired Cloud9 Tempest's NA Challenger Series spot. The first player to join the team at the time of announcement was support Gleeb.[1] Almost 3 weeks later, Solo, Contractz, Goldenglue, and LOD completed the roster. On December 25, the day that Goldenglue was announced, Ember released all starting salary information for their team. At the time, all players were receiving at least $70,000 in total compensation between bonuses and base salary. In doing so, they became the first professional team to make their players' salaries public.[2]

After a 3-1-1 record in the regular season, Ember qualified for the NACS playoffs with the second seed. Over the course of the season, they also loaned multiple players to Echo Fox to play in the NA LCS when that team had visa issues preventing starters kfo, Hard, and Froggen from playing - even having all four LCS-eligible players starting for them in one game (Contractz was only 16 years old at the time). Contractz's age prompted Ember to sign former Huma jungler Santorin as a substitute for the summer promotion tournament should they qualify, since Contractz would be ineligible to participate in any tournament that led to the LCS. However, the team opted to use Santorin in the playoffs as well, and they lost 3-1 to Team Dragon Knights, missing out on both the promotion tournament and LCS chances.

After their failure to qualify for the promotion tournament, Ember announced the departure of all players except for Contractz and that they were interested in selling both Contractz's contract and their Challenger Series seed.[3]
