PEX Team is a Latin American team. The team was previously known as Pineapple Express, before they were forced to change their name due to copyright of the homonymous movie.

History

2014

After winning the first Latin American Cup together with Seiya NerzhuL, Porky and h4ckerv2 with Lyon Gaming, Uri made the decision to return to his native country in search of a new challenge. Mantarraya, proposed to Uri to take the reins of an abandoned team whose name was Pineapple Express, something to which Uri accepted. Accompanied by Fragio, Megajp and Badmilk, the pineapple squad managed to establish the first training house in Latin America.

After qualifying for the first competitive stop in Chile, PEX had its first major test against Seven Wars Lyon in a semifinal that lost 0-2 in favor of the lion, this only increased the motivation of the squad and PEX returned to Uruguay to continue their training with only one goal: beat Lyon Gaming. The second competitive stop arrived and Argentina prepared to be the headquarters where the best teams in Latin America would fight to take the points and the ticket for the International Wildcard Tournament that year.

To everyone's surprise, PEX managed to qualify for the final and face Lyon, against whom he longed to take revenge for what happened in Chile. In front of its fans, PEX achieved what until that moment seemed impossible: it became the first team in Latin America to win a final against the invincible Lyon Gaming, with one of the most famous plays in the history of LATAM, a baron steal of Fragio against Thyak, which marked the career of the current owner of Lyon Gaming. Thus, PEX managed to become the best team in Latin America and got the opportunity to face Brazil for a pass to the League of Legends World Cup that year.

The victory against Lyon Gaming at the end of the competitive stop in Argentina meant a lot to PEX, being its main objective since the beginning of the project. For that reason, the players relaxed excessively, which caused a lack of concentration and training for the most important series of his career. In August 2014, they traveled to face KaBuM, a Brazilian team against which they would play for the World Cup in Korea. The result was overwhelming and devastating: 3-0 in favor of the Brazilian team.

After the disappointment of not getting the pass to Worlds, PEX returned to Uruguay with the hope of correcting the road and achieve the Latin American championship. The pineapple squad failed in its attempt to qualify for the Colombian Competitive Parade and was subsequently eliminated in the semifinals at the Grand Final in Mexico City in 2014.

PEX lost its way and the lack of organization ended up becoming the beginning of the end for the only team in Latin America that managed to tame the lion in that year. That was the main reason why Uri decided to look for new airs and joined Furious Gaming in 2015. The rest of players followed his steps and PEX Team disappeared from the competitive scene.

2018

With a long career in Latin America that includes two stages, first with Lyon Gaming and later with Furious Gaming, Uri made the decision to join a project that supports the individual and collective growth of the players. An organization of players for players.

With the central Uruguayan lane as the cornerstone of the team, the organization made the decision to acquire the position of Authority E-sports to participate in the Opening Tournament of CDL Opening 2018. Although Uri received offers to play in teams of LLN, preferred to fight for PEX could return to its former glory. Dash9 and Furious Gaming were also important in the project, since the organization approached them to ask for advice in order to form a good staff, establish a functional training house, and start with the tests to form the alignment that would compete in the tournament.
