Biography

The Giants Gaming League of Legends division was formed July 2012. They made notable showings at tournaments such as placing 3rd at DreamHack Valencia 2012 and The Siege. It was in pre-Season 3 that Giants had a huge opportunity to play in the upcoming professional league hosted by Riot, the League Championship Series, and competed for a spot onto it at the Season 3 LCS Spring Qualifiers. They were able to make it out of group stage undefeated, then had to face mousesports in the quarterfinals which decided if they would qualify to play in the LCS or not. They were able to sweep the opponent in a 2-0 set and win to compete in the 10 week event facing off against the best of Europe. The roster experienced a shaky season throughout the LCS, finishing 7th with a record of 8 – 20. This meant the team would be sent to relegation matches to prove themselves at the Season 3 LCS Summer Promotion to win back the coveted spot into the league for summer. In a close set vs Team ALTERNATE, the Giants were unsuccessful winning back into the LCS, losing 3-2.

Life after LCS sent the team back into a vamped up amateur scene with them continuing to play at events, recently coming in 4th at Gfinity London 2013. On July 31st 2013, the Giants Gaming organization announced that they would not renew the contracts of their League of Legends players therefore releasing them, however keeping Samux and Exterminare to possibly form a new roster.[1]

Giants competed in the Spring Expansion Tournament, qualifying for the Offline Stage by defeating Ascension and Millenium. In the Offline Stage, Giants won their first matchup against Reason Gaming only to be defeated by H2k-Gaming in the Winner’s Bracket Final. Giants were able to sweep Reason Gaming in the Loser’s Bracket Final, qualifying them to play in the 2015 Spring Split.

After an intense Sprint split, Giants managed to avoid the auto relegation by winning a tie breaker against MeetYourMakers and winning again Reason Gaming in the Summer Promotion tournament, keeping their spot for the Summer Split.

A few days after the start of the Summer Split, Giants announced the swedish Oskar “G0DFRED” Lundström as their new support, releasing Fernando “Rydle” Soria from his contract. Despite being the underdog, Giants performed quite good at the beginning of the split but their strenght decreased during the middle of the season. They managed to qualify for playoffs for the first time in their history after some impressive victories but they were defeated by H2K.

Actually they have a sister team called “Giants Underdoges” competing in the spanish scene and featuring their former LCS Season 3 toplaner Samuel “Samux” Fernández as marksman and former ATLAS Gaming toplaner Jerónimo “Jer0m” Pujades as most veteran players. Also they are building a third team from their academy.
