Established in 2000, against All authority (abbreviated as aAa) is one of the oldest eSports organizations in France. In September 2010, the organization announced the creation of a League of Legends team. The team enjoyed success early in 2011, including second place at the Riot Season 1 Championship, but the roster of players left to join Millenium soon after. Although by November 2012 four out of five of the second place IEM Season V - LoL Invitational and Season 1 Championship players returned, the team never earned the same degree of success. After disbanding once more, with an again newly formed roster, aAa qualified for the Season 3 Spring Split of the League Championship Series and finished in sixth place.
Against All authority was one of the invitees to compete in the IEM Season V - LoL Invitational. In first phase of the group stage, aAa came second going 2-1, defeating SK Gaming and Dignitas EU, while suffering their only loss to myRevenge. In the second and final phase of the round robin tournament, aAa placed second, once again defeating SK Gaming while falling to MyRevenge.
Two months after the event, AP Carry player MoMa joined the team.
With this new aAa squad, the team participated in the Riot Season 1 Championship. Placed into Group A, against All authority went 2-1 and took second place, taking out FnaticMSI and Team Pacific, while suffering a loss to Epik Gamer. Due to placing second in the group stage, aAa was forced to play a relegation round against Gamed!de, which aAa was able to come out of with a 1-0 victory. In the semifinals, against All authority took out North American powerhouse Team SoloMid 2-1 to advance to the winner bracket finals. There, aAa would fall to FnaticMSI 0-2, dropping to play against Team SoloMid in the loser bracket finals, where aAa came out triumphant against TSM 1-0. In the grand finals, aAa met Fnatic again, but like their previous match Fnatic came out on top 2-1, leaving aAa with a second place finish.
Two days after the season one championships, YellOwStaR, kujaa, Tidus, sOAZ, Linak, and MoMa left aAa for Millenium.
A few months after the loss of their team, aAa picked up kujaa, GeoGeo, Onichan, hussle, and kev1n to become their new team. However, this lineup would be short lived as a few weeks later, kujaa, Onichan, GeoGeo, Zylor, and Kev1n. Five days after the departure of their new roster, aAa would announce the addition of Linak, YellOwStaR, sOAZ, ALth0r, and Osaft22.
After the major roster changes, aAa played in the IEM Season VI - Global Challenge Kiev. At this event, against All authority placed third in Group B, going 1-2 by defeating Sypher while falling to Moscow Five and Dignitas. As they were unable to reach top two in their respective group, aAa was eliminated after group stage, going home with a 5th-6th place finish.
Two days after their disappointing placing at IEM Kiev, aAa announced the departure of ALth0r and the addition of MoMa.
With their new roster, against All authority took first place at the CDiscount Cup 1. There, aAa took out Counter Logic Gaming EU 2-1 in the quarterfinals, Absolute Legends 2-0 in the semifinals, and received a win by default against SK Gaming in the grand finals.
A few days after their first place achievement, aAa replaced Osaft22 with nRated.
After yet another roster change, against All authority competed in the IEM Season VI - World Championship. Put into Group A, against All authority took third going 3-2, defeating Alternate, Millenium, and Fnatic, while losing to Dignitas and Counter Logic Gaming. Finishing in the top three in the group stage, aAa advanced to the quarterfinals where they took out SK Gaming 2-1 to move forward to the semifinals. Unfortunately, aAa fell to Dignitas 0-2 in the semifinals, knocking the French team out of contention for first and second place and knocking them down to the third place match. There, against All authority fell to Counter Logic Gaming Prime 1-2, ending the event with a fourth place finish.
One week after the IEM event, against All authority was invited to the Sennheiser HeartoWin Cup. Placed into Group A, aAa went undefeated in the group stage, taking first and going 3-0 by defeating Western Wolves, mTw.EU, and Sypher. Continuing their dominance, aAa took out Natus Vincere 2-0 in the quarterfinals, mousesports 2-0 in the semifinals, and swept Absolute Legends 2-0 in the grand finals, taking first place at the event without dropping a single game.
Despite continued success in the European competitive scene, against All authority called for a roster change on April 18th, 2012, replacing MoMa with former Eclypsia AP Carry amt2k. The following months were rocky for against All authority's roster, as longtime members YellOwStaR and nRated moved to Millenium, followed by top laner sOAZ to Fnatic. After these roster changes, against All authority was left with only two members, amt2k and Linak.
Against All authority acquires a new team after 7 months of inactivity keeping Linak and picking up Karalius, Shlaya, Nono, and fredy122. On January 21st, 2013, all of Linak accounts were permanently banned from League of Legends due to toxic behavior, he was subsequently suspended from the Riot Season 3 EU Live Qualifier as well as from the Riot Season 3 EU Championship Series for one year.  The team then picked up ViRtU4l to replace Linak for their jungle and went to compete at the qualifier to win a spot on the EU LCS Spring season, going 2-0 in their groups then clinching the slot by defeating DragonBorns in a 2-1 set.
February 2013 marked the anticipated start of Season 3 and the beginning of Riot's competitive NA and EU LCS leagues. aAa spent the next 10 weeks facing off against the continent's best teams/players. The team had a rocky performance in the league, eventually ending up 6th at the end going into playoffs with a record of 10-18. The team would need to need to win their first match in the quarterfinals of the EU LCS Spring Playoffs against SK Gaming in order to automatically win back their spot for the summer split. However, a last minute emergency of one of aAa's players needing to go back home left the team in a panic state of attempting to field a proper roster for the match, eventually leading to the team having to forfeit and be knocked into relegation matches.  Although unfortunate, the team still had to a chance to win back their spot by playing in the EU LCS Summer Promotion that occurred in May. aAa were faced off against Go4Lol Qualifier winner, Sinners Never Sleep and were unable to win back their LCS spot, losing 3-0. Unable to play in the LCS league was a tough blow for the long standing League organization, which led to their roster to disband at the start of June. Later that month, aAa announced the formation of their new roster to represent the brand in upcoming competitions.
On October 16th, 2015, against All authority announces the departure of top laner and jungler Spontexx and Darlik, and the arrival of top laner Flaxxish, previously of Meloncats, jungler Amin, previously of SUPA HOT CREW, Ninjas in Pyjamas and Roccat, and manager Galette, previously of Imaginary Gaming, with the goal of qualifying for the EU Challenger Series.
