Origen is a Spanish-based team that was built by xPeke to compete in the League Championship Series.

History

Origen was initially founded by xPeke in December 2014 after he left Fnatic to found his own team. Shortly after, he started to reveal his handpicked roster - joining him would be rookie Niels and veterans Amazing (from Team SoloMid) and Mithy (who had also competed in the LCS with Lemondogs.) Soon after, rumors circulated that sOAZ would also join Origen from Fnatic, and it was officially finalized in mid-January 2015. The team also established a base and gaming house in Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

2015 Season

Origen qualified for the EUCS Spring Qualifier via the Challenger Ladder, where they beat Millenium Spirit in their bracket final, securing their qualification to the EUCS Spring Season. Origen were unbeaten until their penultimate game of the split, against LowLandLions.White, and despite dropping that one game easily secured first place in the regular season. Origen also placed highly in tournaments throughout this period, winning the ESL MWC Challenge and Gamers Assembly 2015. The Spring Playoffs saw Origen beat Reason Gaming in the semifinals 2-1 and then going on to sweep Copenhagen Wolves Academy (the team formerly known as LowLandLions.White) in the final to win the tournament and secure automatic qualification to the LCS Summer Season. Notably, their last game against CW Academy ended on a Zed backdoor by xPeke reminiscent of his famous backdoor at IEM Katowice in 2013, and the team would become known for its backdoor plays to win games.

Throughout the EU LCS Summer Season, Origen jostled for 2nd position with H2k-Gaming, while Fnatic sat far ahead in an undefeated 1st place throughout. Impressive individual performances helped the team ultimately secure that 2nd place regular season finish, and with it a bye past the Summer Playoffs quarterfinal round. In the semifinals, Origen faced off against rivals H2k and won 3-1; perhaps even more impressively, they took two games off Fnatic in the finals despite ultimately losing the series. Their second-place overall finish earned Origen 90 Championship Points, enough for the second seed in the 2015 Season Europe Regional Finals. There, they beat Team ROCCAT in a 3-2 series and then Unicorns of Love in an easy 3-0 and successfully qualified for the 2015 World Championship, where they would play as Europe's #3 seed. Shortly after their qualification, LeDuck decided to leave his role of head coach. He was replaced by analyst Hermit.

At the 2015 World Championship, Origen were drawn into Group D along with Team SoloMid, KT Rolster, and LGD Gaming. Origen went 3-0 in the 1st week of the round robin and ended the group with a 4-2 record, meaning they would advance to the knockout stage of the tournament. Origen won their quarterfinal series 3-1 against the Flash Wolves, becoming the first Western team to win a best-of-five at a World Championship, but were later knocked out by SK Telecom T1, the eventual champions, in the semifinals.

2016 Season

After rumors that xPeke would retire from competitive play, Origen announced a six-man roster for the 2016 season, including former Unicorns of Love mid laner PowerOfEvil and xPeke as co-mid laners. Head coach Hermit also left the team. Their new roster, with PowerOfEvil starting in every game, debuted at IEM San Jose, where after a quarterfinal bye they swept Team SoloMid and Counter Logic Gaming to win the tournament. Not only was it Origen's first international tournament victory, but it was also first time a European team won a major event with a Korean team present since Gambit Gaming's victory at IEM Season VII Katowice, a year and a half beforehand.

Origen's performance at IEM San Jose resulted in their qualification to the IEM World Championship. At the tournament, they first lost to Royal Never Give Up in the upper bracket of their group before then losing to Team SoloMid in the lower bracket, resulting in the team's elimination from the tournament.
