Current Roster
MSF 2019 Spring.png

Misfits Gaming is a European team. They were previously known as Misfits.


Misfits was formed in May 2016 to play in the EUCS Summer Qualifiers after their former parent organization Renegades was banned from competitive play and so could no longer compete under the name Renegades: Banditos. In the qualifiers, they finished first in their group and then defeated EURONICS Gaming 3-1 in the finals to successfully qualify for the Summer Season.

2016 Season

Competing with an initial roster of top laner Alphari, jungler Wisdom, mid laner Selfie, AD carry Hans sama, and support IgNar, the Misfits roster brought a great deal of experience to the table, most notably Wisdom's 2015 World Championship runner-up finish. Little stood in the way of the team as they accumulated a 9-1 regular season record and rolled to an undefeated first place finish in the playoffs. This earned a berth in the 2017 Spring Promotion tournament, where Misfits defeated FC Schalke 04 in the final qualifying round after an opening loss to Origen.

Prior to the start of the following LCS season, Wisdom and Selfie departed the team and were replaced by former KT Rolster star KaKAO and former Origen and Unicorns of Love mid laner PowerOfEvil.

2017 Season

Spring Split

For their first season in EU LCS Misfits were drawn into group A with the defending champions G2 Esports, Fnatic, Team ROCCAT, and Giants Gaming. They started great into the Spring Split going with a 7-1 record after 6 weeks but lost 4 of their remaining 5 matches going into playoffs. Although their strong start resulted in them still finishing their group in 2nd place they continued to struggle in playoffs, barely winning 3-2 against Splyce in the quarterfinals of playoffs. After being beaten comfortably by Group B winners Unicorns of Love in semifinals they were cleanly swept by Fnatic in 3rd place match.

Summer Split

In Summer Split they were in a nearly identical group A again with Ninjas in Pyjamas replacing the relegated Giants. They replaced their imported jungler KaKAO with Maxlore from Team ROCCAT but their Summer Split went similar to Spring starting off 4-1 in the first 4 weeks.[1] Despite going 2-5 in the next week they secured playoffs in week 9 where they swept past Unicorns of Love and winner of their group Fnatic 3-1 to face G2 Esports in their first EU LCS final. They could however not manage to stop G2 from winning their 4th consecutive title being convincingly beaten 0-3 but qualified for the 2017 World Championship via championship points.

2017 World Championship

At the World Championship they were drawn into group D with North America's first seed TSM, LPL thrid seed Team WE, and LMS First seed Flash Wolves. After going 2-1 in week 1 they went 1-2 on the deciding day but were lucky that TSM got upset by FW which meant that the played a tiebreaker against TSM for a place in quarterfinals. After winning the tiebreaker convincingly they drew the back-to-back champions from LCK SK Telecom T1 and surprised many by giving them a good fight and picking aggressive botlane duos but lost the series 2-3.

2018 Season

Spring Split

During the offseason they signed Sencux and Mikyx from Splyce to replace PowerOfEvil and igNar who had left for North America and Korea, respectively.[2][3][4] Consistently decent performances in Spring Split led them to a 3-way-tie for 5th place with a 8-10 record in which they came out worst and outside of playoff position due to having the worst H2H record.

Summer Split

As the only team to stick to traditional team compositions they started off strongly in Summer Split beating every team in the first round. They could however not keep their advantage for the rest of the split and dropped to 5th place and a 11-7 record. Therefore it was surprising that they managed to become the first team to beat G2 Esports before the finals of playoffs by sweeping them 3-0 in quarterfinals. After getting beating 1-3 by both 1st place Fnatic in semifinals and 2nd place Team Vitality in 3rd place match they went into Regional Finals as lowest seed. In Round 1 they faced Splyce and had a close series but ultimatley lost 2-3 which meant that they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Championship.

2019 Season

On November 20, Riot Games announced Misfits Gaming as one of the ten partner teams for the LEC 2019 Spring Split.[5]

Spring Split

For the 2019 Season they decided to rebuild their roster around jungler Maxlore and AD Carry Hans Sama. They brought in veteran sOAZ who left Fnatic, Febiven returning from NA LCS team Clutch Gaming and imported star support GorillA from LCK team Kingzone DragonX.[6][7][8] This roster was seen as contender for Top 3 in LEC and seemed to live up to expectations in the first 2 weeks of Spring Split. They continously dropped down the standings throughout the rest of the split though and ended up with a 8-10 record in 8th place outside of playoff contention.
