History

Acquisition of APictureOfAGoose Roster

On February 14, 2012, the former APictureOfAGoose roster was picked up by mTw to become mTw.NA, gaming organization mTw's second League of Legends team formed nine days after the creation of mTw.EU. The initial roster of this team included Atlanta, mandatorycloud, cuRtoKy, BalIs, and xmithie. This team acquisition occurred while APictureOfAGoose was near the end of the playoffs for Alienware Arena North America: Winter, where they ended up placing 3rd, losing to vVv Gaming.

Season 2

mTw.NA's first major performance was at the In2LOL Kickoff NA Tournament, where they placed first after defeating Team SoloMid and Counter Logic Gaming Black in the quarterfinals and semifinals, and winning 2-0 against Dignitas in the finals.

Only five days after competing in the In2LOL Kickoff NA Tournament, mTw.NA competed in the MLG 2012 - Spring Championship, where they lost to Counter Logic Gaming EU 2-0 in the second round, knocking them down to the loser's bracket where they were had a 2-1 victory over vVv Gaming. mTw.NA was later eliminated from the event by Team Dynamic 0-2 in the fourth round of the loser's bracket.

Throughout June and July of 2012, mTw.NA found increased success in online tournaments, taking first in the In2LOL Kickoff NA Tournament, Solomid NA Invitational 3, and National ESL Pro Series Season 3.

Three days after their achievement in the NESL Season 3 finals, founding member and top laner Atlanta would leave to join Team Dynamic, preferring to play in the jungle, a position that was already filled at mTw.NA.

A few weeks later, Team SoloMid Evo's AD Carry Aphromoo would join mTw.NA, with mTw.NA's current AD Carry Balls moving to the top lane to accommodate.

On August 22 of 2012, Monomaniac eSports would acquire the roster of mTw.NA to form Monomaniac Ferus. This acquisition would have Aphromoo, Balls, mandatorycloud, Muffinqt, and Xmithie leaving mTw.NA to join the new Monomaniac eSports squad.
