IMAY 2016 LPL Summer.jpg

I May is a Chinese competitive League of Legends team.

History

Formerly a sister team of EDward Gaming competing in the LSPL as EDward Esports, the roster qualified for the 2016 LPL Summer Split by securing first place in the Chinese Challenger League, before changing franchises in order to avoid the Riot ruling preventing sister teams from competing in the same League. They were then drafted into Group B for the upcoming season. An important acquisition prior to the beginning of the split was former ESC Ever mid laner Athena: the Korean player went on to play alongside BaeMe for the whole split, both bringing their own playstyle onto the rift.

As the weeks unfolded, IMay struggled against most teams in their own group, while at the same time having the most success against their Group A opposition, with the exception of EDG: indeed, the rookies ended the season with a 5-1 best-of-three record in the intergroup Round Robin and a 4-6 record in the intragroup Double Round Robin. Their overall performance granted IMay the third place in Group B and therefore a spot in the Playoffs. After defeating Invictus Gaming and Snake eSports, the newcomers met the reigning LPL Spring champions Royal Never Give Up in the semifinals: after an hard fought series, the crumbling nexus in Game 5 was IMay's. The team faced Team WE in the third place match, winning 3-1.

IMay's Regular Season placement granted them a spot in the Finals of the Qualifiers, in which they met an exhausted Team WE. With the last Chinese spot for the 2016 Season World Championship as the ultimate prize, the two teams battled in a no holds barred slugfest that went to a full five games. As the situation in Game 5 looked dire, with WE in full control of the map and a sizeable gold advantage throughout the match, the scrappy rookies managed to turtle long enough and wait for a crucial mistake from their opponents, culminating in an ill-fated teamfight at 50 minutes into the game, with IMay turning around a siege on the top lane inhibitor turret and closing out the series.[1]

IMay were drafted into Group B of the World Championship, together with LCK's SK Telecom T1, NALCS' Cloud9 and LMS' Flash Wolves. Between Weeks 1 and 2 starting support Road was banned for the first game of Week 2 against the Flash Wolves for toxic behaviour in Solo Queue.[2] Nevertheless, the team scrapped their way to a 2-4 finish, even winning their game against FW with Athena playing Lee Sin and Avoidless on Alistar, ending in third place overall over FW.

2017 wasn't that great for I May. Although they achieved a 2nd place finish at 2017 Demacia Cup after a 1-3 loss to RNG in the finals, their domestic LPL results were poor. They finished their regular spring season in 4th place with an 8-8 record. In the playoffs they defeated Qiao Gu Reapers 3-2, however they dropped out in the quarterfinals with a 2-3 loss to OMG. In the summer split they finished 5th place with a 5-11 record and didn't earn enough Championship Points which meant they missed their chance to attend Worlds again.
