Renegades (formerly Misfits) was a North American team. In May 2016, they sold their roster and LCS spot to Team EnVyUs.
Renegades was initially announced as an unnamed Challenger team in early March 2015 by Chris Badawi. The team's first roster included former LCS stars mid laner Alex Ich and jungler Crumbzz, along with solo queue star support Remilia. After tryouts for the remaining two positions, top laner RF Legendary and AD carry Intense joined the team, and they named themselves Misfits. In April, Misfits participated in the AlphaDraft Challenger League (ADCL) and dropped only a single game during the regular season round robin, finishing 11-1 in first place. After the ADCL regular season ended, Intense left the team. Stixxay joined as a substitute AD carry and played with the team for the bracket stage of the ADCL, and they won the tournament, beating Frank Fang Gaming in the finals.
Misfits played under the name The Expendables6 on the Challenger Ladder and were in third place at the cut-off date for NA Challenger Series (NACS) Summer Qualifier participation. Danish AD Carry Jebus joined as the team's final permanent member, replacing Stixxay, but his first appearance was delayed due to visa issues. In the NACS Qualifier, Misfits played against Also Known As, Team Liquid Academy, and Magnetic, using two different substitute AD carries — Maplestreet against Also Known As and Magnetic, and Nien against Team Liquid Academy. Misfits swept their competition with three consecutive 2-0 victories and qualified for the Summer Season. The team shortly thereafter renamed to Renegades, with caster and former coach Chris "MonteCristo" Mykles joining as the team's co-owner.
Prior to the start of the Challenger Series, Riot Games published a competitive ruling regarding team owner Chris Badawi claiming that he had inappropriately attempted to persuade otherwise contracted players to join the team (then Misfits), including Team Liquid's Quas and Keith. The ruling stated that if Renegades were to qualify for the LCS, Badawi would have to drop his ownership stake in the team. Multiple parties reacted to the ruling, including MonteCristo and Badawi himself, who both protested the fairness of the ruling; and team owners and managers Steve "LiQuiD112" Arhancet of Team Liquid, Reginald of Team SoloMid, and Jack Etienne of Cloud9, who spoke out in support of it.
Renegades finished the Challenger Series regular season with an 8-2 record and in second place, after losing a tiebreaker to Team Coast. However, in the playoffs, they defeated Imagine 2-1 and then Coast 3-2, earning a berth in the 2016 NA LCS Spring Season.
After a long period of speculation that he would be their AD carry in 2016, Freeze officially joined Renegades on January 6. However, after playing for the first week, Freeze missed the next three games and was replaced by LOD and then Ohq. After the third week, Remi stepped down from the starting lineup and was replaced by Hakuho. Renegades also moved their sub Flaresz to the starting toplane position alongside RF Legendary.
Renegades was faced with significant roster instability in the spring season, as first AD carry Freeze was unable to play for three games early on in the split, and then Remilia stepped down one game after his return. RF Legendary was also replaced by Flaresz for three games later on. In week 7, Team Dragon Knights's top laner Seraph was loaned to Renegades as a substitute, and the team snapped their 12-game losing streak. Going into the eighth week, Renegades and TDK traded several players, with Seraph and Ninja joining Renegades as top and mid laner, respectively, while RF Legendary, Flaresz, and Alex Ich departed. This roster finally proved successful, but it was too little too late, and the team was only able to improve to 8th place in the league, after winning a tiebreaker against Team Impulse. In the Summer Promotion Tournament, Renegades beat TDK 3-0 and qualified for the summer season.
On May 8, Riot released a competitive ruling stating that Renegades would be forced to sell their LCS seed due to multiple rule violations, and Chris Badawi would be permanently banned from "association or affiliation with any team or organization participating in a Riot-sanctioned league". On May 18, Team EnVyUs was announced as the new brand.
