Alliance is a professional gaming organization formed in April 2013 and announced their first League of Legends team in December 2013.
The team currently competes under the name Alliance HyperX, in representation of their sponsor HyperX.
On December 10th, 2013, Alliance's League of Legends team was created by picking up the Top and Mid laners of Evil Geniuses, Wickd & Froggen and players Tabzz (former AD of Lemondogs) and Shook (former Jungler of Copenhagen Wolves). The team acquired EG's spot in the EU LCS and so were able to participate in the Season 4 Season 4 Spring Split. Unofficially dubbed the "European Super Team" by fans, and doing very well in scrims by all accounts, expectations for them were high going into the split.
The start of the Season 4 Spring Split was disappointing for the team, as they found themselves consistently in the bottom 3 teams until the 8th week. From here onwards, Alliance dominated the split. The performances of Froggen and Nyph in particular propelled them up to 1st in the penultimate week, but an unsuccessful superweek saw them lose the top spot. Alliance finished in 3rd place behind SK Gaming and Fnatic.
Alliance's performance in their first split resulted in their qualification for the Spring Playoffs. The playoffs saw the team lose to Fnatic in the semifinal, and following this, Alliance lost to ROCCAT in the 3rd place match.
The Summer Split saw Alliance emulate their form from the end of the Spring Split. Alliance finished in 1st place, staying at the peak of the rankings table for the entire split.
Following this was the Summer Playoffs, a chance for the team to qualify for the World Championship in their first season with the organisation. Alliance placed 1st in the playoffs, beating Fnatic in the final, and secured themselves a place at the World Championship.
The World Championship saw Alliance placed in Group D along with NaJin White Shield, Cloud9 and KaBuM! e-Sports. Notably, Alliance suffered a shock loss to KaBuM! in their last match of the group stage. A win would've seen them play in tiebreaker matches to progress to the knockout stage, but it was not to be. Alliance beat each team once and lost to each team once, resulting in a 3rd place finish in the group, meaning they would not go any further in the tournament.
On October 24th, Tabzz announced that he was a free agent and was interested in exploring opportunities with other teams. Over the next few days it was revealed that there was a disconnect between him and the rest of the team, and that the team was interested in picking up Rekkles as their new AD carry from Fnatic.
Due to a new policy limiting the ability of GoodGame Agency to brand LCS teams instituted by Riot on November 21st, Alliance would have to change their brand for the 2015 season.
On November 24th, Alliance confirmed via Twitter that they had completed the signing of Rekkles to fill the vacant role of AD carry. They were the European team invited to IEM San Jose, where they played with Wickd, Shook, Froggen, Rekkles, and Nyph. Seeded directly into the semifinals, they lost 1-2 to Cloud9 and tied for third place with Team SoloMid.
