MAD Worlds 2020.png

MAD Lions is a Spanish team. They were previously known as Splyce. For the LVP SLO team that went by the same name, now known as MAD Lions Madrid, see here.

The organization has teams in League of Legends, Clash Royale, CS:GO, and FIFA.

History[edit]

Parent company OverActive Media rebranded Splyce as MAD Lions in November 2019, with an official announcement on the 29th.[1] Their initial roster for the LEC 2020 Season included four rookie players - Orome, Shadow, Carzzy, and Gistick - along with mid laner Humanoid, the only carry-over from Splyce.

2020 Season[edit]

MAD had a good start to Spring Split as they went 5-3 in the first four weeks which meant that they were in a 3-way-tie for 4th just one win behind first place. They however continued to show varying performances throughout the rest of the split but due to beating their opponents Misfits Gaming and Origen in the last two weeks they secured 4th place with 11-7 record which meant a place in upper bracket of playoffs. For Round 1 they were chosen by G2 Esports and managed to put up a great fight that ended in saving their nexus one hit before defeat to close out the game and therefore the series 3-2. In Round 2 they faced Fnatic and were completely outclassed by them which meant that they needed to beat G2 again in the lower finals to get a rematch against Fnatic in the finals. This time their opponent came better prepared and dominated the series 3-1 to end MAD's first split under their new name.

Trivia[edit]

  • The seven stars in the logo come from the flag of Madrid, the capital of Spain.
  • The name "MAD Lions" is actually a play on words; while the name makes sense when explicitly read, MAD does not refer to the English adjective, but is an abbreviation of Madrid. The name is also a reference to the lions in the Cibeles Fountain, an important monument in Madrid.
