Team EnVyUs is a North American multi-gaming organization. Their League of Legends team was founded in May 2016 upon acquiring the roster and LCS seed of Renegades. They disbanded in November 2017 due to their exclusion from the newly-franchised 2018 Spring Season of the NA LCS.

History

2016 Season

Team EnVyUs was announced on May 18, 2016, as the new organization of Renegades, inheriting three signed players in Seraph, Ninja, and Hakuho, as well as the team's NA LCS Summer Season seed.[1] The acquisition took place after Renegades was banned from LCS ownership, but reportedly the two organizations were in talks prior to the ruling.[2] Their final roster for the LCS added Procxin, Nientonsoh, and LOD.[3]

Despite having multiple substitutes on their roster, EnVyUs started Seraph, Procxin, Ninja, LOD, and Hakuho for the entirety of the split. Fueled by strong practice going into the season, EnVyUs started out 4-0 in series records after two weeks, sharing first place with Team SoloMid. However, in the weeks that followed, they slipped down the standings all the way to sixth place, where they sat from week 6 through the end of week 9. With the bottom seed into the playoffs, EnVyUs faced Cloud9 in the quarterfinals where they pulled out a game 1 comeback win before losing the next three to be eliminated. They ended the season with 20 championship points. In the Regional Finals, EnVyUs defeated Team Liquid's new roster with Arcsecond jungling but then lost to Cloud9, who went on to win the gauntlet.

2017 Season

In the offseason, EnVyUs signed former Afreeca Freecs jungler LirA. They also swapped ADCs with the newly rebranded Team Dignitas, acquiring veteran ADC Apollo while sending LOD to Dignitas. However, visa issues prevented LirA from appearing until week 2 of the Spring Season, forcing the team to switch Ninja to jungle and play substitute Alex Ich in mid lane. His arrival did not improve things, as EnVyUs finished 3-15 and never ended a week anywhere other than tied for last place, meaning they would have to play in the promotion tournament. Despite their weak result, LirA's play was so outstanding that he was voted the first team NALCS jungler, the first time a player on a last place team had received that honor.

EnVyUs began the promotion tournament inauspiciously, dropping a 3-1 set to the veteran Gold Coin United lineup, sending them into the losers bracket. There, they managed to defeat EUnited 3-1, setting up a rematch with GCU where they would manage to outlast them 3-2 on the strength of LirA's play, keeping their LCS spot.

In the offseason, EnVyUs parted ways with Ninja and brought in former Phoenix1 mid laner Pirean and former Fnatic Academy mid laner Nisqy to replace him. Neither was considered a particularly high profile pickup, Pirean had last played in the LCS when Phoenix1 was in the promotion tournament, and Nisqy had been one of the weakest mid laners statistically in the EUCS, despite his team promoting into the LCS. The team also made a coaching change, bringing in viOlet to replace Dylan Falco who moved to Europe to coach Fnatic.

With Nisqy unable to play for the first few weeks due to visa issues, Pirean got the start and the team finished 3-1 and in a three way tie for 1st after the first two weeks, partly off of his strong Taliyah play. After that, however, the team played inconsistently, alternating the two mid laners until Pirean returned to Phoenix1 in week 7 to replace Ryu, leaving Nisqy as the sole starter. EnVyUs managed to finish week 7 with an 8-6 record, but faced with playing all of the top 4 teams in the final two weeks, they lost all four games to finish 8-10, though they still easily secured the 6th playoff seed due to the weakness of the teams below them.

In the playoffs, EnVyUs faced off against the heavily favored 3rd seed CLG, who had spend most of the season neck-in-neck with TSM and Immortals for first place. However, after getting crushed in the first game, the EnVyUs botlane managed to exploit rookie jungler OmarGod, as well as a suddenly floundering Stixxay and Aphromoo to take a 2-1 lead in the series. On the brink of defeat in game 4, CLG's increased playoff experience won out, and they managed to take that game and the next, ending EnVyUs's season. EnVyUs would also not get to play in the Regional Finals, as they only had 20 championship points compared to FlyQuest's 30.

With the NALCS moving to a franchised format for the 2018 season, EnVyUs was not one of the teams selected to receive a franchise, and the team disbanded soon afterward.[4]
