History

Pre-Season 3

The Copenhagen Wolves team was created in August 2012 by former members of Team WinFakt, TCM Gaming, and Team FragZone: Svenskeren, TheTess, Godbro, XL Winner, HunteRSzz, and substitute Deficio. HunteRSzz was quickly replaced by high-elo free agent Bjergsen. The team made their first major appearance by taking third-fourth place at DreamHack Winter 2012. During the group stage of the event, the Copenhagen Wolves entered a three-way tie for second place. In order to advance to the playoffs, they won a tiebreaker against The Mighty Midgets and Team Curse Europe. Each team went 1-1 in the tiebreaker, but the Copenhagen Wolves were selected to advance because they won each game more quickly. In the playoffs, they lost to CLG EU 0-2 and took home 3-4 place and 30,000 kr. By finishing in the top four at DreamHack, they were able to qualify for the Season 3 European League Championship Series (LCS) Spring Qualifiers.

Season 3

Because Bjergsen was too young to play in the LCS, the Copenhagen Wolves took on CowTard as a temporary mid lane player. Nevertheless, they would defeat Millenium 2-0 at the Spring Qualifiers, solidifying a spot in the Season 3 spring split of the EU LCS. The Wolves started off the season with a devastated 0-9 in eighth place, but made a comeback when Bjergsen turned seventeen and joined again. Copenhagen Wolves went 13-6 throughout the rest of the split and finished the Spring LCS in 5th place, with a record of 13-15. In the playoffs, however, they fell 1-2 to Evil Geniuses, dropping down to the Summer EU LCS Promotion Tournament.

At the Promotion Tournament, they took down Samurai in Jeans 3-1 and became the only incumbent team in Europe to return to the LCS. Shortly after re-qualifying for the LCS, the Ninjas in Pyjamas organization took over sponsorship of the roster, and the team left the Copenhagen Wolves organization. To replace the departed players, the Copenhagen Wolves picked up members of the team PrideFC in June: YoungBuck, Shook v2, Unlimited, and Wolves veteran cowTard.

The new roster competed in DreamHack Summer 2013, taking first place in their maiden tournament with a 2-1 victory over Dark Passage. In July, the Copenhagen Wolves took first place at Gfinity London 2013, defeating Eternity Gaming 2-0. Later that month, the team placed second behind TCM-Gaming at a Season 4 LCS Spring Promotion Qualifier, receiving a spot in the main Season 4 Spring Promotion Tournament.

Pre-Season 4

At the Season 4 Spring Promotion Tournament in December 2013, the Copenhagen Wolves quickly emerged as the tournament favorite. The Wolves finished the group stage at an undefeated 5-0, with a win apiece against each of the other challenger teams. During the promotion stage, after dropping the first game, the Copenhagen Wolves won three straight games against MeetYourMakers to finish 3-1 and obtain a spot in the next season's LCS. The Copenhagen Wolves became the first team to compete in two distinct Promotion Tournament matches, the first to do so both as an incumbent and a challenger, and the first to compete in two non-consecutive splits of the LCS: spring Season 3 and spring Season 4.
