LMQ was a Chinese competitive League of Legends team, previously a sister teams to Royal Club. The team moved to North America on December 15, 2013 and competed in the North American scene.[1] The team previously competed under the name LMQ iBUYPOWER in representation of their former sponsor iBUYPOWER.[1] On December 26, the team rebranded to Team Impulse.

History

LMQ was formed in July 2013 after merging portions of the rosters of Team Livemore and Royal Club Tian Ci: Dreams, F1sh, andWayoff from the former; Mor, NoName, TS, XiaoWeiXiao, and PandaB from the latter. LMQ competed in the summer split of the 2013 LPL; despite taking a game off the Season 3 runner-up Royal Club, LMQ finished with a disappointing 8-13 record in sixth place.

In November 2013, after the Season 3 World Championship, F1sh and PandaB moved to LMQ's sister team, Royal Club. At that month's National Electronic Sports Tournament, LMQ went 2-1 in the tournament's group stage after downing CC Club and Team WE Academy while falling to the parent Team WE. In the bracket stage, LMQ lost 1-2 to the tournament favorite and eventual winner OMG, but rebounded in a 2-0 victory against Royal Club in the third place match.

On December 15, 2013, LMQ left its parent organization Tian Ci and obtained a new sponsor in iBUYPOWER. With the assistance of its new sponsor, LMQ moved to North America to take advantage of the superior esports infrastructure. At this point, Dreams and Wayoff left the team, to be replaced by Royal Club top laner GoDlike, who renamed to ackerman.

In January 2014, LMQ made their way atop the North American 5v5 Challenger tier and earned an invite to the official Riot-sponsored Challenger Series, also known as the Coke League. In their North American debut, LMQ went 8-0 and beat compLexity.Black 2-0 in the finals. By finishing first, LMQ received 9 Challenger Series Points and earned a berth in the second series. There, in March, LMQ went 4-1 on their way to a 2-0 win in the finals against Cloud 9 Tempest, thus clinching the top overall seed in the Challenger Series playoffs to be held later in the season.

While competing in the second Challenger Series, LMQ was also offered an invite to the North American Challenger League (NACL) Season 2 Qualifiers, where they went undefeated and secured a spot in the league. During the league's regular season, LMQ went 18-4 without a losing record against any team. During the March playoffs, LMQ defeated Cloud 9 Tempest 2-1 in the semifinals and moved on to face Team 8 in the tournament's grand finals. LMQ won the final series 3-1 and became NACL champions.

After having secured a spot in the semi-finals of the Challenger Series playoffs due to their tremendous amount of points accumulated from both Challenger Series, LMQ went on to defeatCurse Academy in a 2-0 victory sending them to the finals against the tough Cloud 9 Tempest. After an initial loss in the best of five series, LMQ came back winning two in a row to make the series 2-1. Cloud 9 Tempest however, bounced back in game four to tie up the series 2-2. After a very low-kill game game five, Cloud 9 Tempest attempt to make a pick, but instead gets nearly aced and losing the game to LMQ. LMQ left the Challenger Series playoffs with a 5-2 record and went home with the grand prize of $16,000.

In April 2014, LMQ secured a spot for the 2014 NA LCS Summer Split after beating XDG Gaming 3-0 in the 2014 Season Summer Promotion Tournament.
