Royal Never Give Up is the LPL counterpart team to Star Horn Royal Club. A number of their players played with either SHRC, Team King (following King's promotion and SHRC's relegation) or both, and the team also currently wears SHRC badges on its uniforms.
RNG gave playing time to their other five members after IEM Katowice, including InSec picking Master Yi in a comeback win against Energy Pacemaker.All and NaMei marking his return to form by getting a pentakill playing Lucian against Vici. Finishing first in Group B, they earned a bye into the semifinals and then defeated Team WE 3-2 and EDG 3-1 to become LPL champions and earn the right to represent China on home soil at the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational in Shanghai. It marked not only RNG's first LPL championship but also the first for any Royal Club team (including the original Royal Club, Star Horn Royal, and Team King.)
RNG proceeded to impress at MSI, going undefeated over the first three days of group stage play, defeating G2 Esports, Counter Logic Gaming, Flash Wolves, SuperMassive eSports, and even defending world champions and tournament favorites SK Telecom T1. Their first defeat came at the hands of the North American CLG with a massive comeback win, but they still secured the top seed into the playoffs - and a World ChampionshipPool 1 seed for China. Unfortunately for RNG, SK Telecom T1 recovered from a disappointing fourth place group stage finish, and RNG lost 3-1 in the semifinals - including a perfect game 4 from the Korean team.
Following MSI, InSec, LetMe and Ley stepped down from RNG to focus on the SHRC LSPL squad, but the team acquired former EDG manager San Shao and re-acquired AD Carry Uzi, who had played on Royal's 2013 team and SHRC's 2014 team - both of which had finished second at Worlds.
