NRG eSports is a North American team.

History

2016 Preseason

NRG eSports was announced on November 16th, 2015. They formed when two co-owners of NBA team Sacramento Kings purchased Team Coast's NA LCS slot for the 2016 Spring Season. Their initial line-up included top laner Impact from Team Impulse, jungler Moon from Imagine, mid laner GBM from Jin Air, and support KonKwon, the only player to move over from Coast. Former Origen head coach Hermit and Cloud9 coach Charlie formed the team's coaching staff.[1] Altec officially joined the team's roster later on in the day.[2]

2016 Season

NRG started the LCS strong, tied for either first or second place through the first four weeks, but after the fifth week they fell down to fifth place and remained there for the rest of the season. They were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.
