Overview

Orbit Gaming is a multi-gaming eSports organization. The organization currently only supports a League of Legends team, but they are looking to slowly expand into Dota 2, Counter Strike and Starcraft II.

History

Acquisition of HOODSTOMPGRAVESGG

Two weeks after Orbit Gaming's announcement of their intention of picking up a League of Legends team, on April 15th, they acquired the players from HOODSTOMPGRAVESGG. However, LiNk and Hoodstomp left the team soon after to join Counter Logic Gaming Black. Around the same time, Vech also left due to schedule conflicts and YoDa was announced to be building a new roster, but was unable to complete a roster and eventually left Orbit Gaming.

Orbit Gaming Picks Up nFear Gaming

On May 25th, 2012, Orbit Gaming announced the acquisition of the roster form nFear Gaming, with previous Orbit member LemonNation replacing Arthelon, nFear's previous support player. With the new roster, Orbit placed 7th/8th at the 2012 MLG - Spring Championship. At the Spring Championship, Orbit defeated vVv Gaming 2-0 in the first round, but lost 1-2 to Counter Logic Gaming Prime in the second round which placed them in the loser's bracket. In the loser's bracket, Orbit defeated Redact 2-0, Team Legion 2-0, and Team SoloMid Evo 2-0. They eventually lost to Counter Logic Gaming EU 1-2 in the fifth round of the loser's bracket.

Season 2

On June 30th, Orbit competed in the Leaguepedia North American Invitational. In the two day online tournament, they were able to finish in first place, most notably defeating Curse Gaming 2-1 in the quarterfinals and sweeping Team Dynamic 2-0 in the finals. On August 26th, Orbit took fourth place at the 2012 MLG Summer Championship, losing to Dynamic 1-2 in the third place match. This led to a tie with Monomaniac Ferus for eighth place in the North American Season Two Circuit Rankings. To decide the last spot for Season Two Regional Finals Seattle, a best of three tiebreaker match was held. Orbit lost 0-2 to mMe and was denied a spot at the North American Regionals.
