Absolute Legends was formed on March 23rd, 2011 as a community website for the European League of Legends scene. The idea for the website came from Tim "WetDreaM" Buysse who played League of Legends competitively at the time.

In December 2011, Absolute Legends merged with Counter Logic Gaming and picked up a League of Legends team. This cooperation didn't work out and the two organizations parted ways after a short duration, though the competitive team stayed with CLG and became Counter Logic Gaming EU. Absolute Legends then acquired a new team, the former lineup of Mistral eSports. At the same time Absolute Legends also acquired a professional DotA2 team which formerly played for the Australian team Natural 9.

On March 22nd, 2012, eSahara joined Absolute Legends to form a single larger eSports organization. With this merge, Absolute Legends acquired a Counter Strike 1.6 team, two StarCraft 2 teams and one Quake Live player.

On June 1st, 2012, the Absolute Legends team was acquired by Curse Gaming as their new European division. Absolute Legends announced the acquisition of the entire ExHCL Gaming squad as the new Absolute Legends team.

History

Formation of Absolute Legends

Absolute Legends was founded on March 23rd, 2011 by Tim "WetDreaM" Buysse.

Absolute Legends would find some small scale success on several online tournaments, taking first at the Go4LoL EU West November Monthly Finals and Go4LoL EU West December Monthly Finals.

On December 20th, 2011, Absolute Legends would announce a merger with major North American gaming organization Counter Logic Gaming. With the merger came a roster change, with a lineup consisting of Wickd, Froggen, Snoopeh, yellowpete, and Krepo.

Season 2

However, a few weeks later Absolute Legends would separate with Counter Logic Gaming. With the separation, the team Absolute Legends team would move to CLG, becoming Counter Logic Gaming EU. Absolute Legends would pick up the team of Mistral eSports, consisting of Angush, extinkt, kottenx, Prepared, and Sleper.

With their new roster, Absolute Legends would take third in the Kings of Europe tournament. In the group stage, Absolute Legends would take second going 2-1, defeating SK Gaming and exGBT while falling to Moscow Five. In the semifinals, Absolute Legends would fall to Counter Logic Gaming EU 0-2, falling to take third. In the third place match, Absolute Legends would go 2-1 against Sypher.

Absolute Legends would be one of the 16 European teams to be invited to the HeartoWin Cup. Seeded into Group D, Absolute Legends would take second place going 2-1, defeating TCM Gaming and Moscow Five, while falling to Mousesports. Advancing to the playoffs, Absolute Legends would take out CLG EU 2-0 in the quarterfinals and Western Wolves 2-1 in the semifinals. However, their success would end in the finals, where Absolute Legends would fall to against All authority 0-2, taking home second place from the tournament.

4Players.de All or Nothing would invite team Absolute Legends to participate in their winner takes all invitational tournament, held on March 31st, 2012. In the playoffs, AL would take out SK Gaming 1-0 in the quarterfinals and Team SoloMid 2-1 in the semifinals. However, Absolute Legends would fall to CLG.EU 0-2 in the grand finals.

The next event that Absolute Legends would attend would be their own Absolute Pro League: March, where they were able to achieve a third place finish. Showing a strong start, Absolute Legends would take first place in Group A, going 3-0 by defeating Sypher, WinFakt, and FnaticRC. In the quarterfinals, Absolute Legends would defeat Natus Vincere 2-0, but would drop to CLG.EU 1-2 in the semifinals. In the third place match, Absolute Legends would defeat Western Wolves 2-1.

Four days later, Absolute Legends would take first in the Go4LoL EU West February Monthly Finals, taking out aAa, mousesports, and exHCL Gaming.

In the Gamers Assembly 2012, Absolute Legends would take second place. Absolute Legends would most notably defeat Meet Your Makers, Team Sypher, and Counter Logic Gaming EU in the playoffs. In the grand finals, Team Sypher would take out Absolute Legends 0-2 in their rematch.

On April 18th, long time top lane player Angush would be kicked from the team due to a "[clash] of personality within the team". Xinec stated that "Angush became increasingly disrespectful towards every other person in the team. This escalated to the point where we honestly felt that we didn't want to be in a team with him any longer. Since Malunoo, Sleper, Extinkt and myself wanted to carry on playing as a team, we decided that the best solution was to part ways with Angush.[1] Five days later, Absolute Legends would welcome Joey "Youngbuck" Steltenpool as their new top laner, replacing Angush.

The new lineup would play several scrims and games together, even taking first at the Scandic Games League on May 9th, 2012. However, the Absolute Legends EU roster would be acquired by Curse Gaming, becoming Curse Gaming EU. As a response, Absolute Legends would acquire the roster of exHCL Gaming, consisting of Celaver, veggie, Puki style, SuperAZE, and Kikis.

With the new team, Absolute Legends would take second place at the SK Trophy May. At the event, Absolute Legends would take out Fnatic and Meet Your Makers 1-0 in the round of 16 and quarterfinals. In the semifinals Absolute Legends would sweep Millenium 2-0 to advance in to the grand finals. There, AL would face against Russian favorite Moscow Five, who were able to defeat Absolute Legends 2-1.

Due to internal problems with the management and team, Kikis would depart from Absolute Legends.[2] With his departure, Puki style would move to the top lane.

A few days after the departure of Kikis, Absolute Legends would lose the rest of their squadron, with Celaver, Puki style, Veggie, and SuperAZE leaving. Around one week later, Absolute Legends would acquire the roster of WinFakt, taking on YamatoCannon, Akilord, TheTess, Akamez, and firemane811.
