Phoenix1 is a North American team.

History

Phoenix1 was announced on May 23rd, 2016, as the team inheriting the NA LCS Summer Season seed previously belonging to Team Impulse.[1] On May 26th, their starting roster was announced and included zig, Brandini, Inori, Slooshi, Pirean, Mash, and Gate, with zig and Brandini sharing the top lane, and Slooshi and Pirean sharing the mid lane.[2]

2016 Summer Season

Phoenix 1 failed to pick up traction as a team finishing the season 5-13 ranked 8th place. They managed to break even in head to head series 1-1 with Echo Fox, NRG, Apex, EnVyUs, and even TSM. However, they were 2-0'd by the likes of C9,CLG, and Team Liquid. This placed Phoenix 1 into a a bad position (going 15-31), forcing them to battle for their spot in the 2017 Spring Promotion tournament.

2017 Spring Season

Starting the season fresh with the departure of Brandini,Gate,Mash, and Slooshi during the "rosterpocalypse". They acquired a highly talented and experienced group in the likes of Ryu in Mid, Arrow as ADC, Adrian as Support.[2]

P1's new team showed signs of flashes chemistry through the Spring Season, but suffered set backs at the hands of TSM in week 3 & 9, CLG in weeks 4 & 6, Split with FlyQuest,Dignitas, and the impressive win vs Cloud 9 in week 5. After going 5-1 through weeks 6-8, Phoenix 1 dropped its finally two games to ranks 1 & 2 seed in TSM and Cloud 9 placing them in 3rd in the standings with a overall record of 11-7.

In the quarterfinals of the Spring Playoffs, they matched up with Team Dignitas; whom they swept without remorse. Unfortunately, they met up with Cloud 9 in the semi's. Not being able to handle the superior macro and map control, P1 went down without winning a single match. Phoenix 1's 3rd place finish was a close one. Flyquest already having completed a reverse sweep on CLG almost did it again. Due to some solid macro, and poor decisions by FlyQuest, Phoenix 1 was able to closed out game 5 and place third in the playoffs.
