The team currently competes under the name Mineski.SMART, in representation of their sponsor Smart Communications.
On 17 November 2012, Mineski acquired Team Nirvana.DK to form Mineski League of Legends team. Since the inception, the team has grown and been competitively solid, placing high in all minor tournaments they entered leading up to Season 3. Becoming known as a top contender of the Philippine scene, the team was able to participate in the Season 3 Southeast Asia Regional Finals after coming in 2nd at the Philippine qualifiers. The team would come from loser's bracket to face the team that sent them there in the finals, the powerhouse of Singapore Sentinels. In the grand finals, Mineski would beat the heavy favorite SGS to place first, granting them a coveted spot at Season 3 World Championship.
At the Championship, Mineski would face off against the world's best in their first big international tournament. Despite good efforts and becoming a fan favorite during groups, they would not advance to the bracket stage, going 0-8, finishing 14th and gaining good experience for their future endeavors.
