Formation of Midnight Sun Esports
Midnight Sun eSports was founded in January 2015 by Ethan Liu with the intention to compete in the inaugural season of the Taiwan League of Legends Masters Series (LMS). MSE announced that they would be looking to acquire and support an amateur League of Legends team in the Taiwan/Hong Kong/Macau Region to join the 2015 LMS Spring Season. To assist the organization in this process, Ethan invited S2 World Champion Lilballz to scout and be the coach of this future team. Prior to and during the qualifier, Ethan offered the coaching services of Lilballz to all amateur teams, free of charge, to help them prepare for their upcoming matches.
At the conclusion of the qualifier, three amateur teams came out on top : DarlingYou, TeamHopeLess and No Game No Life. After a few days of deliberation, MSE announced that they decided to acquire the starting roster of No Game No Life, the most famous amateur team in Hong Kong, to become the 6th professional team in 2015 LMS Spring Season.
