Kongdoo Monster Roster 2018 Spring.png

Kongdoo Monster is a Korean team. They were formerly known as e-mFire.

History[edit]

Kongdoo Monster was announced as the new name of e-mFire in February 2016, partway through the spring season of the LCK.

2016 Season[edit]

At the time of Kongdoo's sponsorship, the team was in ninth place in the league, with a 1-7 series record, and after the rename, the team still failed to win any more sets during the season, ending 1-17 in last place. This forced them to play a relegation match against challenger team MVP, who defeated them 3-1 and relegated them to Challengers Korea 2016 Summer. Afterwards, the team picked up jungler PuNch.

After a mediocre 2-2 start to the Summer Split they picked up the pace towards the end with new coach Zefa and finished 2nd after winning their 3 remaining series. In playoffs they faced Ever8 Winners in semifinals and swept past them to face undefeated first place SBENU Korea in finals and qualify for the promotion tournament. They dominated the first two games, got dominated themselves in game 3 but came back from that and won game 4 and the series convincingly.

In round 1 of the Spring Promotion they faced CJ Entus. They managed to come back from a 8k gold deficit in a 68 minute game 1 and destroyed their opponents in game 2 to qualify for the final. There their opponents were LCK team ESC Ever after 3 slow games they went into game 4 with a 2-1 lead and dominated it to qualify back to LCK.

Before the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup Hipo and Crush left the team as well as most of the coaching staff so they went into the tournament with brand new coach MC. They won round 1 against amateur team Seoul in two bloody games and were drawn to play against KT Rolster in quarterfinals. Following two one-sided games Kongdoo were on the back foot despite maintaining a small gold lead before winning the deciding teamfight at nearly 50 minutes to go on to sweep semifinals against ESC Ever who came off a win against the world champions. In finals they played ROX Tigers and after winning a close game 1 ROX woke up and dominated the next 3 games as it was to be expected.

2017 Season[edit]

They could not carry these good performance over into Spring Split though and were after 8 weeks already nearly confirmed to drop back into the promotion tournament with a 1-13 record. Despite two upset victories in the last 2 weeks they did not managed to avoid these because they lost the supposedly easier matches against their direct competition. In Summer promotion they beat CJ Entus in round 1 with 2 convincing victories after being down 0-1 which meant two chances to secure their place in LCK. They missed their first chance when they once again were beaten clearly by Jin Air 1-3 and faced E8W for their second chance. The series went like the previous one though with 2 losses before recovering with a good performance in game 3 only to lose game 4 clearly.

Kongdoo kept their roster going into Summer Split and showed the expected good performances with a 6-1 record after the first half of the split. Following defeats to all 3 other playoff participants during the second half they moved Secret up to become the starting support. This change seemed to have a positive impact as they won the semifinals against APK Prince 3-1 with good performances to qualify for another promotion tournament and were in prime position to win game 5 of the finals against CJ but were aced 49 minutes into the game and lost the game.

In the Spring Promotion Kongdoo took revenge in round 1 with a 2-1 victory against E8W to have once again two chances for a place in LCK. This time they managed to convert their first chance against bbq Olivers already but having to come back from big deficits in all 3 wins was a big sign for this roster for the upcoming LCK season.

Before the 2017 LoL KeSPA Cup jungler Punch and sub support GuGer left the team so they had to play with the new unexperienced jungle signing U Jun and were beaten in round 1 already by the new roster of challenger team DAMWON Gaming.

2018 Season[edit]

Going into the 2018 Season they signed a more experienced jungler in Raise because U Jun had almost none and did not perform well enough to warrant putting trust in him as the starting jungler. They had an unexpectedly good start to the Spring Split winning and losing 2 series each in the first weeks before quickly dropping down the standings to finish the split in the anticipated last place after only winning 3 more games and dropped down to Summer Promotion for the third year in a row. There they were clearly beaten by Griffin in round 1 and faced once again E8W in elimination round. Their superior macro won them the series 2-1 to fight MVP in a battle for which team requalifies for LCK. They equalized twice in hard fought games after being dominated before and were also not given any chances in game 5 so they not only played in Summer Promotion tournaments three times in a row but also were sent to Challenger every time.

During midseason Raise became inactive and MC left the coaching role. With U Jun who renamed to LuBu as starting jungle they had a consistenly good Summer Split in which they finished with a 10-4 record in 3rd place. In semifinals of playoffs against second place Team BattleComics they were after one close and one convincing win 2-0 up but after almost coming back from a deficit in game 3 BtC used the momentum to reverse sweep the series and deny Kongdoo participating in a 6th promotion tournament in a row.

On 4th November 2018 the roster disbanded and two weeks later the CK slot was acquired by Brion Company and Kongdoo disbanded.
