Taipei Snipers was a competitive League of Legends team based in Taiwan. It was originally the sister team of Taipei Assassins.

History[edit]

Formation of Taipei Snipers[edit]

In January 2013, five former Taipei Assassins members (MiSTakE, NeXAbc, GoDJJ, Zonda, and colalin) as well as one new member (OhReaL) formed Taipei Snipers. The team became the sister team of Taipei Assassins and the third professional League of Legends e-sports team in Taiwan. Retty, the CEO of Garena Taiwan and former coach of Taipei Assassins, became the coach of Taipei Snipers.

Season 3[edit]

The first tournament in which TPS participated was GIGABYTE StarsWar League Season 2. The team was placed in the same group as Team WE, Invictus Gaming, and SK Telecom T1. Taipei Snipers placed 3rd in the group and dropped to the Loser's Bracket, where they were defeated by NaJin Sword.

Unlike Taipei Assassins, Taipei Snipers did not join the Garena Premier League (GPL). They instead joined the Taiwan eSports League 2013, where they played against ahq e-Sports Club and four other Taiwanese teams: Wayi Spider, Gamania Bears, e-Sports Dragons Pro, and yoe IRONMEN. Taipei Snipers dominated the league with a 20-5 record. Taipei Snipers then qualified for the Season 3 Taiwan Regional Finals, but placed 2nd behind Gamania Bears.

2014 Season[edit]

After the disappointing finish to Season 3, Winds and Awei joined while OhReaL swapped roles from jungle to mid lane. During the 2014 GPL Winter, the team faced off against their sister team, Taipei Assassins, in the finals. They lost 2-3 and placed 2nd overall. Afterward, NeXAbc and MiSTakE retired.
