RMA e-Sports was a Brazilian multi-gaming organization. In 2015 it was renamed to Brave e-Sports.

History

RMA is a team of 15-year-old founded in Diablo 1, well known by its Diablo 2 team and its renowned MMO roster. Since its inception, the team has as one of its priorities the base category and the revelation of new homemade talents. RMA is present in 7 games.

The team was known for encouraging the competitive scenario in the Diablo series in late 90s before the existance of the e-sports system.

In the early 2000s, after more than 9 years of dedication to the Diablo series, the team migrated to MMOs, building an international legacy in several games in the genre such as Lineage 2, Perfect World, Aion, Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2, always being among the top guilds.

In 2007 there was the first attempt to enter in the competitive scenario by creating the DotA team that was later the base of one of Brazil's most respected DotA teams. In 2008 RMA joined the Guild Wars competitive scenario.

In October 2012, the RMA officially joined the League of Legends scene when hiring the former representative of Monomaniac.Peritus to represent the team in the Riot's Brazilian Championship.

Since then the team has consolidating itself as one of the most important teams in Latin America.[1]

Before League of Legends

RMA e-Sports began its journey in 1998, always playing games competitively. After a long period in MMOs, RMA becomes a multigaming in 2007, when it begins its journey in Dota 2 and Guild Wars. In 2011 the team migrated to Guild Wars 2 and in 2012 invested in League of Legends scene. The team become professional in 2013.

Acquisition of Monomaniac Peritus

The start of RMA e-Sports in the League of Legends scenario was through the acquisition of the Monomaniac Latin American division, the Monomaniac Peritus team, on October 1, 2012. The players were hired after becoming a free agent at the end of the contract.[2]

Season 2

Named as RMA e-Sports, the League of Legends project began shortly after the launch of the national servers. Inheriting the spot Monomaniac Peritus, already qualified for the national championship, the team formed by Fox, Draek, Maou, Rhyuga, and Bechede[3] participated in the Riot Season 2 Brazilian Championship during the 2012 Brazil Game Show. However the participation of the lions resulted in the early elimination For the Insight e-Sports just in the first round by the 2x0 score.

The organization played an important role in the process of maturation of the Brazilian scenario, always present in historical competitions since then, such as the final of the first edition of Go4LOL[4], the qualifying final for IEM Singapore 2012[5] and the qualify for IEM São Paulo 2012.[6]

After the CBLoL, the RMA had different temporary top lanners, trying to find a new fixed member. The first one that replaced Fox on the top was Ramires. It was with him that RMA was present at the first major national level private championship, the GeForce GTX League of Legends Invitational Brasil, produced by the recently launched Arena X5. The agency organized several showmatches under the name of Brazil Gaming League, with prize awards for the winners, which greatly agitated the scenario in which RMA participated constantly. Besides the Brazil Gaming League, RMA won important matches and consolidated as one of the elite teams in the country, such as many Go4LoLs and the GamerHouse LoL Cup, which the lions got the first place, this time with Leko.[7]

Still in 2012 the team begins its first Academy activity, setting up a second line up, the RMA Starwon.[8]

Season 3

The year of 2013 was a troubled year for the entire League of Legends market in Brazil, which was learning to professionalize hard and was no different with RMA: three teams competed for the organization in the year, which evidences the high turnover of the Scene during this season, frequent in almost all teams. Problems with contract compliance marked the year. After the end of 2013, the domestic market has stabilized considerably.

Soon in early 2013, more precisely on January 12, a new team is redesigned and set up entirely by the organization, something unusual for the scenario at the time, retaining only the drak jungler of the old line up. The lions were given the following training: Age (coming from the team Academy project), Draek, prZo, Kiralho, and Gutso.[9] However, the team did not stay in the organization very long. Draek and company won the respected Torneio dos Legends# 7, with a pretty solid game. A single championship was able to promote the team to Tier 1 and was enough for other teams to fight for the newly announced line up. The team ended up being released on February 19 to a great organization of the scene, consolidating the RMA as a great assembler of great teams since then.

Then, on February 21, other group were the red: Akali, Jockster, Mandioca, MicaO, and Wheezy.[10] Three changes were quickly made: Jockster decided to give up the game and was replaced by Fox, who returned the team; Support Wheezy gave way to Shumi, while Akali was replaced by Age, a revelation from the RMA academy. The promising team conquered their space by winning the curious showmatch with Keyd Team to announce a new sponsor for 2x1[11] and several weekly championships such as Brazil Gaming League Battle, Go4LoL and Tournament of Legends as they prepared for the Riot Season 3 Brazilian Championship. However, in the final stretch, the players decided to leave the organization and join AceZone, which generated a huge rivalry between the organizations and their fans that lasted for many years.

The new team arrived on April 18. These are the free agents captained by the experienced Kalec: Piolho, Frosty, Korvac, and Akali who returns to the team once again. After three months for the most important competition of the year, a task force was set up to prepare the team for the most important competition of the season. During that time, Element joined the team, taking Akali to the reserve bench, to fortify the team. The RMA was one of four teams to organize a pre-CBLoL bootcamp.[12] It was at this time that RMA brought the first Latin American psychologist to the League of Legends, which became an important adition to the rest of the season.

The lions were in Group A of the Riot Season 3 Brazilian Championship, alongside the great favorite Keyd Team, PeesPlay Gaming (former RMA team from Micao and company) and Nex Impetus (who at the end of the championship became KaBuM!_e-Sports). The specialized media and the community gave RMA the last position of the Group, but the players and the team staff showed what they came for. The opening clash was RMA x Keyd and the lions beat Keyd overwhelmingly, turning the World Trade Center Arena into euphoria and cheerleading for the underdogs[13], now group leaders. However, the lions did not just beat Keyd and continued their excellent campaign to finish the undefeated group stage. In the sequence, the lions faced the paiN Gaming in the quarterfinals, getting the third position and were eliminated by the winning team of the championship.[14]

After the competition ended, the players broke up and the team disbanded on September 12.[15]

Season 4

With the new season coming, in February the RMA set up a strong team aiming at the continuation of the legacy conquered in the previous year. The new line-up had Thulz, Djokovic, Shinigami, EzPrince, and RedBert.[16] The team was gaining several expressive results and preparing for the new format of CBLoL 2014, which was now worth the classification for the LCS. In April, the team came as a favorite to qualify for the group stage of the tournament alongside paiN Gaming, CNB eSports Club and Keyd Team.

It was then that the lions suffered a severe setback: EzPrince and RedBert were banned by the practice of elojob and prevented by 1 year of competing. The administration tried to replace the botlane right in time in the eve of the most important competition in the organization's history to date. The lions first tried Anjinho and Theusma during the Torneio of Legends#18, that the lions got the 1st place.[17] But the chosen players selected to replace the banned members were Skyer and Chomper, a botlane that already had synergy. However, the substitution clearly did not flow to the required level and the players did not adapt easily, causing a elimination in the final stretch of the competition, before classification into the LCS format.

With disqualification, the RMA focused on other games during the remainder of the year, waiting for the Challenge Series model to be created and announced.
