NRG Esports is a North American team. They were previously known as NRG eSports.


2016 Preseason[edit]

NRG eSports was announced on November 16, 2015. They formed when two co-owners of NBA team Sacramento Kings purchased Team Coast's NA LCS slot for the 2016 Spring Season. Their initial line-up included top laner Impact from Team Impulse, jungler Moon from Imagine, mid laner GBM from Jin Air, and support KonKwon, the only player to move over from Coast. Former Origen head coach Hermit and Cloud9 coach Charlie formed the team's coaching staff.[1] Altec officially joined the team's roster later on in the day.[2]

2016 Season[edit]

NRG started the LCS strong, tied for either first or second place through the first four weeks, but after the fifth week they fell down to fifth place and remained there for the rest of the season. They were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. In the midseason break, NRG traded out nearly their entire roster, keeping only GBM and adding Quas, Santorin, ohq and KiWiKiD. The community's reception to these changes were mixed; while ohq was seen as a solid pickup, Quas had just come off of a split away from competition, and KiWiKiD was seen as one of the weaker supports in the league. Ultimately, the changes did not work out, and NRG were consistently in eighth place week after week in the summer split until they fell to ninth in week 9. In the promotion tournament, they lost first to Cloud9 Challenger and then to Echo Fox in back-to-back 3-0 sweeps and were relegated to the NACS. Soon after relegation, multiple players announced their free agency, and it was reported that NRG were closing down their team.[3] It was confirmed the next day that the team had let all of their players go to pursue other options, but they were still "working on a plan" to stay in League of Legends.[4][5]
