Overview

ahq e-Sports Club Korea was the sister team of ahq e-Sports Club.

History

ahq e-Sports Club Korea was a Korean team formed by the Taiwanese e-Sports organization ahq e-Sports Club. The team was formed on February 15th, 2013 with a roster of HooN, TrAce, ActScene, Promise and Loray.

The team made their first major proscene debut on February 26th in a NiceGameTV Battle Royal Season 2 match against MVP Blue, which they lost 1-3. The team's next major appearance was in the qualifiers for OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013 through which they qualified for the Spring Champions season, only losing one map to Virtual Throne Gaming. Their qualification placed them into Group B of Champions Spring where they went 0-4-1 in the group, tieing KT Rolster B, SK Telecom T1, NaJin Shield, and Incredible Miracle and losing their match against CJ Entus Frost.

In their final match against Incredible Miracle, the team won the first game and lost the second after a quick surrender. This draw caused the two teams to tie for fourth place, the last spot to advance to the bracket stage, and was broken by calculating the two teams KDA-per-minute of their matches throughout the groupstage which resulted in ahq Korea being eliminated by only a 0.005 difference in KDA-per-minute.[1] After their elimination from Champions Spring, the roster was released and formed Hoon Good Day.

Matchfixing Scandal

In March 2014, ahq ADC Promise wrote a note prior to attempting suicide detailing the team's matchfixing, claiming that their coach had told them they must lose to "big-company" teams in order to be permitted to play in OGN. After conducting an investigation, KeSPA found that Promise was guilty of matchfixing, but no other of his teammates were, despite Promise's accusation of ActScene. [2] [3]
