FlyQuest is a North American team.

History

Originally reported on January 4, 2017, as Cloud9 Challenger's new brand, FlyQuest was officially announced on January 5 and are co-owned by Wesley Edens, co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, and Fortress Investment Group.[1][2] Their initial roster included Cloud9 Tempest alums Balls, Hai, Altec, and LemonNation along with former Team Liquid Academy jungler Moon.[3]

2017 Season

Going into the NA LCS 2017 Spring Season, FlyQuest were predicted by many to be a bottom tier team, due to Moon and Altec's lack of previous success and the fact that the three former Cloud9 players seemed to be past their prime. However, FlyQuest shocked many by posting a 6-2 record over the first four weeks, playing a variety of out-of-meta picks including Zed in the mid lane and Evelynn in the jungle. However, the honeymoon quickly ended as the team proceeded to go 1-7 over the next four weeks before managing to defeat the bottom tier Team Envy and Team Liquid, squeaking into the playoffs with the 5th seed.

In the quarterfinals, FlyQuest faced off against fourth seed Counter Logic Gaming, who were favored due to FlyQuest's weak late season performance. After going to 0-2 in the series, FlyQuest roared back to win the next two games and eventually reverse sweep CLG off the back of some questionable aggressive calls in game seven. Unfortunately, the Cinderella story ended there, as they were quickly swept by eventual champions TSM in the semifinals, and fell to Phoenix1 in the 3rd place match despite taking a 2-1 series lead.

During the midseason, FlyQuest picked up WildTurtle, who had previously played with the former Cloud9 players during their challenger days, and was available due to Doublelift returning to TSM for the Summer Season. Altec remained with the team for the first two weeks as a substitute despite not playing a game, but left before week 3 to join Team Dignitas. Unfortunately, despite the change, the struggles that had begun in the late spring continued. FlyQuest never managed to climb higher than seventh place or reach a .500 record and only avoided relegation by winning their final two games.

Due to having 30 championship points from the Spring Season, FlyQuest were eligible to play in the 2017 Regional Finals. With little expected of them, they managed to shockingly sweep Team Dignitas in the first gauntlet match and take the first game of the second series off of CLG before eventually falling in a close 3-1 series, ending their Worlds hopes.

2018 Season

Spring Split

With the NALCS franchising for the 2018 Spring Season, FlyQuest were expected not to make the cut for the new LCS, but was announced as one of the six existing teams that had been given a permanent slot. Soon after, they completely rebuilt their roster around AD carry WILDTURTLE, adding former Immortals top laner Flame, rookie jungler AnDa, Korean mid laner Fly and support Stunt, with former SK Telecom T1 coach Rapidstar coming over to coach them. While this roster did have some talent in Flame and Fly, most considered the team likely to place in the lower half of the league. Adding to this already pessimistic outlook, Fly was unable to play for the first three weeks due to visa issues, forcing the team to use academy mid laner Keane in his place. Despite the substitution, FlyQuest went 2-2 to begin the Spring Season, including a Week 1 upset of TSM, who had been predicted to be one of the best teams in the league. However, they then dropped to 2-4 going into the second half of the season. Fly's debut perked the team back up to a respectable 4-6 at the end of week 5, but they only managed to win two games the rest of the way, finishing 8th with the exact same record as the previous split. However, one of these victories was a win over Cloud9 in the final game of the regular season that forced them into a four way tiebreaker for playoff seeding, the first time FlyQuest had recorded a match victory over their former parent team.
