Longzhu Gaming 2017 LCK SPRING.png

Longzhu Gaming was a professional gaming team based in South Korea.

History[edit]

Longzhu Gaming was formed in January 2016 when Incredible Miracle rebranded and took the name of their previous title sponsor, LongZhu.[1]

2016 Season[edit]

Longzhu Gaming approached the 2016 LCK Spring Season with a 10 man roster, signing many high-profile free agents during the offseason, such as LGD Gaming's Flame, Jin Air Green Wings's Chaser, CJ Entus's CoCo, and Samsung Galaxy's Fury. However, they still finished the spring split in seventh place with an 8-10 set record, missing out on a spot in the playoffs. The summer season wasn't much better. Having signed Emperor from a first place finish in Europe with G2 Esports, the team performed disastrously. Only after they started using Fury as their ADC again did Longzhu's fortunes rise, ending the season 7-11 in sets. This gave them eighth place in the season, allowing them to escape relegations.

2017 Season[edit]

Longzhu Gaming formed a new roster, consisting of top laner Expession, jungler Crash, former KT Rolster mid laner Fly, and the former ROX Tigers bot lane, PraY and GorillA. The team competed in the Spring Split but they ended in 7th place with a record of 8-10, only enough to escape relegations again. Longzhu then retooled the roster, with only PraY and GorillA remaining from the spring team. They added former CJ Entus mid laner Bdd and little-known top laner Khan, as well as promoting jungler Cuzz to a starting position. In the 2017 Summer Split, Longzhu performed excellently, claiming 1st place with a record of 14-4, and giving them the number one seed in the playoffs. There, they shocked the world by defeating three-time World Champions SK Telecom T1 3-1 in the finals, due Longzhu's incredible plays and Khan's ability to carry. This guaranteed them a spot in the 2017 World Championship as Korea's second seed and as heavy favorites to win the tournament. Longzhu Gaming was placed in Group B along with Fnatic, Immortals and GIGABYTE Marines, where they placed 6-0 in the group stage. However, despite their efforts, Longzhu was swept 3-0 by eventual tournament winners Samsung Galaxy in the quarterfinals, ending their run. After the World Championship, Longzhu upgraded the team again when former SK Telecom T1 Jungler Peanut joined the team as their starting jungler. They competed in the 2017 Kespa Cup where they defeated Jin Air Green Wings in the quarterfinals and swept SK Telecom T1 2-0 in the semi-finals. They then advanced to the finals where they met KT Rolster. In an exciting five game series, it seemed that Longzhu was going to win but KT, having not won anything in 2017, turned the tables in their favor and defeated them 3-2, and Longzhu ended in second place in the tournament. Nevertheless, Longzhu was hailed as a powerful team in Korea.

2018 Season[edit]

On January 7, 2018, Longzhu's acquisition by Chinese company Kingzone was announced, but at the time no new name for the team was given.[2]
