Final Five is a North American team.

History

Final Five was formed when Rhux left Team Coast to build a team with manager MizzPeach under the agency Motion Gaming. With a roster of Rhux, ShorterACE, Gate, Prototype White, and Rule18 and substitute Elbakro they qualified for the North American Spring Expansion Tournament via the ranked 5's ladder under the team name Eun Jeong Jo pls notice, finishing with the seventh-place ladder seed into the tournament, behind Zenith eSports and ahead of Monstar Kittenz. In the online portion of the tournament, they defeated Zenith eSports 2-1 and then compLexity.Black 2-0 and qualified for the offline stage along with Team Fusion, Team Coast, and Curse Academy.

Going into the offline stage as underdogs, Final Five surprised by taking Team Fusion to five games, though they did ultimately lose the series, moving to the loser's bracket. There they faced Team Coast and were eliminated, this time losing 1-3.

Final Five's roster for the NACL New Year's Kick-off Tournament included Ensign Ledo and Airtom as substitutes, though they never officially joined the team. The team placed fifth/sixth in the tournament.

On December 29th, Veritas left Avant Garde and joined Final Five to begin a trial for AD carry.[1] The next day it was further announced that ShorterACE would no longer be starting for Final Five due to external conflicts including school. At the same time, MizzPeach's title changed from team manager to Vice President of Motion Gaming.[2]

2015 Season

Due to their participation in the offline stage of the Expansion Tournament, Final Five automatically qualified for the NA Challenger Series Spring Season. After a 2-2 record over the first two weeks, KonKwon, previously of Team Dragon Knights, joined the team as starting support, while Rule18 was moved to a substitute position.

One week later, Final Five joined the Coast organization, and both teams made roster swaps. KonKown left Final Five to play on Coast, while Impaler and Sheep left Coast to play in the Challenger Series with Final Five. This made the starting lineup for the last two weeks of the Challenger Series include Rhux, Impaler, Gate, Veritas, and Sheep.[3] After the roster swap, Final Five's results actually worsened, and they lost all of their remaining Challenger Series games - they did still qualify for the playoffs, but they lost 0-2 to Enemy eSports and then 0-2 to Team Fusion, missing out on the Summer Promotion Tournament. However, due to their playoff participation, they were given an automatic seed into the summer NACS season. Prior to the start of that season, Final Five and Coast separated from each other, enabling both of them to keep their seeds into the tournament.[4] Prior to the start of the summer season, Final Five rebranded as Vortex.
