KING-ZONE DragonX Roster 2018 Spring.png

Kingzone DragonX is a professional Korean team.

History

2018 Season

In January 2018, Kingzone acquired the roster of Longzhu Gaming and re-branded the roster as Kingzone DragonX. The team competed in the 2018 Spring Split where they were defeated at the opening match by KSV eSports, largely because of the suspension of top laner Khan. When Khan's suspension was expired, the team began a rampage that resulted in a 7 series winstreak before being defeated by BBQ Oliviers. However, Kingzone was unfazed and became a top one team with a record of 16-2, guaranteeing them a spot in the Spring Playoffs as the number one seed. Among the teams that Kingzone defeated was KT Rolster, Afreeca Freecs, ROX Tigers, SK Telecom T1, and KSV eSports. Kingzone went into the finals a heavy favorite and beat Afreeca to qualify for the Mid-Season Invitational, the first team other than SKT T1 to do so from Korea.

In the Mid-Season Invitational, expectations towards Kingzone were very high but they gave out disappointing performances in the tournament, losing to the likes of Flash Wolves and Fnatic. Having a 6-4 record, they managed to secure a playoff spot where they managed to defeat Flash Wolves 3-1 in the semi-finals but fell to Royal Never Give Up 3-1 in the finals, ending the LCK's dominance over the Mid-Season Invitational. Much of the criticism were placed to Khan and Gorilla, which many thought was the reason of Kingzone's fall in the tournament. In the Summer Split, Kingzone was not as dominant as it had in Spring, netting third place in the round-robin. In the Quarterfinals, Afreeca Freecs got their revenge against Kingzone for the Spring Split final and defeated them 3-1, resulting in Kingzone playing in the 2018 Korean Regional Finals, as KT Rolster had exceeded their championship points. In the Regional Finals, Kingzone failed to qualify for the World Championship, losing 3-0 to Gen.G
