Jin Air Green Wings Roster 2018 Spring.png

Jin Air Green Wings is a Korean a professional gaming team based in South Korea.

Originally, it was formed in November 2011 as a StarCraft: Brood War team when three Proleague teams - Hwaesung Oz, WeMade FOX and MBCGame HERO - disbanded, and was simply known as the 8th Team initially until South Korean budget airline Jin Air became its title sponsor in July 2013.

History

Season 3

The Jin Air organization picked up the rosters of Eat Sleep Game and Hoon Good Day to form the Jin Air Green Wings Falcons and the Jin Air Green Wings Stealths respectively. Miso, Reapered, Raven, Roar and StarLast joined the Falcons and HooN, TrAce, ActScene, ŁØAÐ and IceBear joined the Stealths. Neither team managed to qualify for worlds.

2014 Season

A mixed Jin Air team participated at the SK Telecom LTE-A LoL Masters 2014 but they placed fifth in the regular season and missed playoffs. Neither the Stealths nor the Falcons managed to earn enough circuit points to qualify for the 2014 Season Korea Regional Finals so neither went to worlds.

2015 Season

Changes to the OGN rules forced both teams to merge to form the Jin Air Green Wings. The roster consisted of TrAce, Chaser, Winged, GBM, Pilot, Cpt Jack, Chei, and XD. They placed fourth in the regular season of SBENU Champions Spring 2015 and qualified for the playoffs. However, they lost in the first round 3-0 to CJ Entus and placed fourth for the season. Jin Air placed sixth in the regular season of SBENU Champions Summer 2015 and gained 10 circuit points but missed the playoffs. They had enough circuit points to qualify for the 2015 Season Korea Regional Finals where they made it to the finals but lost 3-1 to KT Rolster and barely missed out on worlds.

2016 Preseason

In the offseason, Jin Air lost several players including starting toplaner TrAce, jungler Chaser, and midlaner GBM. With a roster consisting of rookie SoHwan and former substitutes Winged and Kuzan, as well as their existing botlane Pilot and Chei, they played in the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup where they lost 2-0 in the quarterfinals to CJ Entus. Following that, they were invited to IEM San Jose where they were seeded into the semi-finals, but lost 2-0 to Counter Logic Gaming. TrAce rejoined Jin Air shortly after these tournaments.

2016 Season

Jin Air started the 2016 LCK Spring Split strong, notably upsetting reigning world champions SK Telecom T1 on the first week. For the majority of the split, Jin Air held onto second place only behind the ROX Tigers, but fell down to fourth by the end of the season. Still qualifying for the Spring Playoffs, they beat the Afreeca Freecs 2-0 before falling 3-1 to eventual winners SK Telecom T1. This gave them a fourth place finish for the split.

During the 2016 LCK Summer Split, Jin Air went 7-11 in series score, netting them seventh place overall in the split. This made them barely miss the 2016 LCK Summer Playoffs for the season. However, their fourth place finish from last season gave them a berth into the first round of the 2016 Season Korea Regional Finals. In a close set against the Afreeca Freecs, Jin Air was defeated 3-2, ending their season.
