| Team History|
Alfonso "mithy" Aguirre Rodríguez is a League of Legends player from Gran Canaria, Spain. The first notable game that he played was Pokemon. He played Counter-Strike: Source, then moved on to playing World of Warcraft on a private server where most premier PvP players would play.
He then played Bloodline Champions competitively and went to DreamHack Summer 2011 as a substitute, meeting Noonia and MegaZero during the event and placing 6th. He would go to DreamHack Winter 2011, this time winning the tournament under the x6tence banner. One of the factors that contributed to his team's success was his own adjustment to playing on a LAN environment (where ping would be negligible, as compared to 120 ping from the Canari Islands). He would mostly play the Spear Master bloodline.
He was introduced to League of Legends through a public chat within BLC. He moved full-time to League of Legends in January 1st, 2012, as soon as the Bloodline Champions servers were moved to Sweden, which had the immediate effect of increasing his ping from 120 to 180.
On March 28th, 2014, Mithy was fined $500 USD for using offensive, racist language in a League of Legends game lobby.
On June 6th, 2014, mithy was suspended from the League Championship Series and the Challenger Series through the end of 2014 due to extremely toxic behavior in solo queue. This behavior included, but was not limited to, in game harassment, verbal abuse, and continual use of racial slurs.
On December 19th, 2014 Mithy's banned was lifted by Riot, leaving him free to play in the 2015 LCS and Challenger Series. Soon after his ban was lifted, Mithy joined Origen, a new European Challenger team formed by xPeke after he left Fnatic. Teammates Amazing, and Niels joined at the same time, and sOAZ became their top laner.
Mithy and Origen qualified for the EUCS Spring Qualifier via the Challenger Ladder, where they beat Millenium Spirit in their bracket final, securing their qualification to the EUCS Spring Season. Origen were unbeaten until their penultimate game of the split, against LowLandLions.White, and despite dropping that one game easily secured first place in the regular season. Origen also placed highly in tournaments throughout this period, winning the ESL MWC Challenge and Gamers Assembly 2015. The Spring Playoffs saw Origen beat Reason Gaming in the semifinals 2-1 and then going on to sweep Copenhagen Wolves Academy (the team formerly known as LowLandLions.White) in the final to win the tournament and secure automatic qualification to the LCS Summer Season. Notably, their last game against CW Academy ended on a Zed backdoor by xPeke reminiscent of his famous backdoor at IEM Katowice in 2013, and the team would become known for its backdoor plays to win games.
Throughout the EU LCS Summer Season, Origen jostled for 2nd position with H2k-Gaming, while Fnatic sat far ahead in an undefeated 1st place throughout. Impressive individual performances including Mithy's Thresh helped the team to a 2nd place regular season finish, and with it a bye past the Summer Playoffs quarterfinal round. In the semifinals, Origen faced off against rivals H2k and won 3-1; perhaps even more impressively, they took two games off Fnatic in the finals despite ultimately losing the series. Their second-place overall finish earned Origen 90 Championship Points, enough for the second seed in the 2015 Season Europe Regional Finals. There, they beat Team ROCCAT in a 3-2 series and then Unicorns of Love in an easy 3-0 and successfully qualified for the 2015 World Championship, where they would play as Europe's #3 seed.
At the 2015 World Championship, Origen were drawn into Group D along with Team SoloMid, KT Rolster, and LGD Gaming. Origen went 3-0 in the 1st week of the round robin and ended the group with a 4-2 record, meaning they would advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. Origen won their quarterfinal series 3-1 against the Flash Wolves, becoming the first Western team to win a best-of-five at a World Championship, but were later knocked out by SK Telecom T1 in the semifinals.
Origen and mithy competed at IEM San Jose, and were given a bye to the semifinals due to Fnatic's withdrawal from the tournament. The team fielded their roster from the previous season, but with PowerOfEvil in the mid lane and xPeke taking a coaching role. They took down Team SoloMid in the semifinals, and went on to beat Counter Logic Gaming in the final - winning the tournament without losing a single game.
Origen's performance at IEM San Jose resulted in their qualification to the IEM World Championship. At the tournament, they first lost to Royal Never Give Up in the upper bracket of their group before then losing to Team SoloMid in the lower bracket, resulting in the team's elimination from the tournament.
Mithy and Origen had a decent spring split but didn't manage to win it. In the playoffs they made it to the finals but lost 1-3 to G2 Esports. In May of 2016, Mithy along with Zven left OG and joined G2. The move ended up being successful as the team won the Summer Playoffs with a 3-1 victory over Splyce and qualified for the 2016 Season World Championship.
G2 was placed in Group A along with ROX Tigers, Albus NoX Luna and Counter Logic Gaming. Although expectations for them were fairly high, the team only won 1 game and finished 4th place in their group which knocked them out of Worlds.
G2's Spring Season was fairly dominant. The team won their group in the regular season and only dropped one series. In the playoffs they defeated Unicorns of Love 3-1 in the finals to capture their third LCS title and qualify for the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational. At MSI although G2 had some struggles and finished 4-6 in overall record, they still made it to the knockout stage. In the semifinals they took down Team WE 3-1 but then lost 1-3 in the finals to SK Telecom T1 and finished 2nd place.
The Summer Season was much more of a struggle for G2. They were very shaky throughout the regular season and finished 2nd in their group below Fnatic. In the playoffs G2 defeated Splyce in the Quarterfinals 3-2 in a hard fought series. Although they were expected to struggle more in the following rounds, G2 swept H2k Gaming 3-0 in the semifinals. Then in the finals they swept Misfits 3-0 and won their fourth LCS title in a row. This also qualified them for the 2017 Season World Championship.
At Worlds G2 was place in Group C along with 1907 Fenerbahçe, Samsung Galaxy and Royal Never Give Up. G2 performed much better than last year but their group was very hard. With their 3-3 record they were unable to advance any further and finished 3rd in their group. In November of 2017 Mithy along with Zven left G2 and moved over to North America to join Team SoloMid.
