Team ROCCAT is a European eSports organization formed by German peripherals company ROCCAT. In January 2014 the company formed its first directly sponsored eSports team, when they acquired the full roster of Kiedyś Miałem Team.

History

ROCCAT originally started by sponsoring a number of professional eSports organizations that possessed professional League of Legends teams, such as Quantic Gaming, against All authority and mortal Teamwork. However, in late 2013, ROCCAT announced their intentions to directly sponsor a professional League of Legends roster, after seeing the booming success of the competitive League. Their eyes quickly turned to Kiedyś Miałem Team, an un-sponsored Polish group which had just qualified for the Season 4 European Championship Series after an impressive 3-0 sweep executed against the heavy favorites Ninjas in Pyjamas. The deal was finalized on January 13th, 2014, with Riot Games officially recognizing Team ROCCAT as the organization that would be competing in the European LCS.

2014 Season

The Spring Split was a huge success for the team. Impressive early split performances saw both Overpow and VandeR pick up a weekly MVP award each. ROCCAT spent 3 weeks at the top of the standings table mid-split, but results tailed off slightly towards the end of the split. The team ended up finishing 4th behind Alliance, securing themselves a spot in the Spring Playoffs.

ROCCAT performed well in the Spring Playoffs, but lost to SK Gaming in the semifinals. The team went on to finish in 3rd place after beating Alliance in the 3rd place match.

The Summer Split was a struggle for ROCCAT, with the team not once making it out of the bottom 3 of the standings table. A frustrating few weeks at the start of the split were followed by an overall improvement in the team's performances. Both Overpow and Jankos picked up a weekly MVP award during this period. Despite their struggles, ROCCAT placed 6th overall, clinching a place at the Summer Playoffs.

The playoffs saw the team raise their game considerably. A quarterfinal win over SUPA HOT CREW resulted in a semifinal matchup against Fnatic. The series was unexpectedly tight, with ROCCAT coming close but eventually losing 3-2 and missing out on qualification for the World Championship. A 3rd place match loss against SK Gaming meant that ROCCAT finished 4th overall.

2015 Season

On November 10th, it was announced that the team was moving to Berlin (it had earlier been announced that the LCS studios were moving from Cologne to Berlin[1]).[2]

When Fnatic were unable to attend IEM Cologne, ROCCAT took their place with Overpow moving to top lane and Ryu filling in as a temporary substitute player for the mid lane; this made their roster Overpow, Jankos, Ryu, Woolite, and VandeR. The team were knocked out in the semifinals, losing to Counter Logic Gaming.

Team ROCCAT had an unsuccessful LCS Spring Split, finishing the regular season in 8th place, which meant that they would play in the Summer Promotion. Here, the team faced Copenhagen Wolves Academy and came out victorious, securing their spot in the Summer Split.

The Summer Split itself was far more successful for the team, finishing the regular season in 5th place partly thanks to Nukeduck's impressive performances on a range of champions. This meant they would qualify for the Summer Playoffs, where the team were beaten in the quarterfinals by Unicorns Of Love, meaning that they would pick up 20 Championship Points and go on to play in the 2015 Season Europe Regional Finals. Team ROCCAT went on to lose to eventual qualifiers Origen in Round 2 of the gauntlet.

2016 Season

On December 8th 2015, it was announced that Nukeduck had left Team ROCCAT, and that MrRalleZ and Steve would be loaned out to an unnamed Challenger team.[3] Just a week later, long-time members Jankos and VandeR left the team after almost two years, forcing ROCCAT to field a completely new roster in 2016.[4] In January, head coach YamatoCannon left to join Splyce.[5]

On January 5th, Team ROCCAT announced their new roster for 2016 with former SK Gaming toplaner fredy122, former Copenhagen Wolves jungler Airwaks, former Gambit midlaner Betsy, former Renegades AD Carry Jebus, who renamed to Safir, and former Gambit support Edward. For their coaching staff, ROCCAT signed former LDLC jungler ImSoFresh as head coach and former Gambit analyst Moo as head analyst.[6]
