HISTORY
CREATED: 2016-02-19


Kongdoo Monster is a Korean a professional gaming organization based in South Korea. The team is formerly known as e-mFire.

History

Due to a poor showing in the 2015 LCK Summer, NaJin e-mFire released all its players. Prior to the beginning of the 2016 LCK Spring Split, it was announced that e-mFire will still play their slot but without the sponsorship from Najin.

Season 6
After the first round of 2016 LCK Summer Split, it was announced that e-mFire will be playing under a new sponsorship for the second round, thus the rename of the team to Kongdoo Monster. Spring was a tough time for the team and the players. They ended the split at 1-17 dropping them down to Challengers. With almost all of the original roster sticking together, the team dominated the Challenger scene and they qualified for the promotion tournament. They were able to regain their LCK spot by beating CJ Entus (2-0) and Ever (3-1).

The team's Head Coach ViNylCat left the team so they fielded former StarCraft2 pro Jang "MC" Min-chul as their Head Coach going into the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup. Fortunately, the departure of their previous Coach did not affect the team as they have shown the same strength in the Challengers during the KeSPA tournament. They were able to beat KT Rolster (2-1) and Ever (2-0) before dropping to ROX Tigers (1-3) in the Finals, ending their run at 2nd place but winning them a spot at IEM XI Gyeonggi.

At IEM, the team made it as far as 2nd place by beating Dark Passage and GIANTS! Gaming in the Group Stage and Immortals in the Semifinals. They, however, lost to Samsung Galaxy in the Finals.

In the off season, Kongdoo exempt themselves from roster changes. Although they added former SBENU Sonicboom Support, Secret, to their roster, they are still planning to field the same starting five for 2017 Spring, including Roach, Punch, Edge, Ssol and GuGer.
