EDward Gaming is a Chinese competitive League of Legends team, founded in 2013.

History

EDward Gaming's League of Legends team was created in September 2013, with the initial roster consisting of U, NaMei, fzzf, ClearLove and Koro1. The team acquired LMQ's spot in the LoL Pro League, China's premier League of Legends competition, after the latter team moved to North America to compete in the NA Challenger series.

2014

The first professional tournament won by EDG was the 2014 international eSports tournament in Yiwu. Soon after, EDward Gaming won the 2014 LPL spring split. This earned EDG a reputation as one of China's strongest League of Legends teams.

EDward Gaming also emerged victorious in the LPL summer split, winning both the regular split and the Playoffs, defeating OMG in the final. This was enough to secure qualification for the 2014 World Championship. However, the team did not see the same success, crashing out to fellow Chinese team Star Horn Royal Club after underperforming throughout the tournament.

After the 2014 World Championship, the team saw significant roster changes, with Samsung White midlaner and world champion PawN joining the team, along with Samsung Blue AD Carry Deft, and Azure, now known as Meiko, as support. U departed the team to join Team Snake, NaMei joined Star Horn Royal Club, and fzzf retired from competitive League of Legends.

2015

EDward Gaming regained their form in the LPL, coming first in the 2015 Spring Split. They defeated LGD Gaming 3-2 in Playoff final, a game in which ADC Deft earned a Pentakill. This allowed them to qualify for the first ever Mid-Season Invitational, or MSI, a tournament containing only the number one team from each region. EDG won this tournament, defeating South Korean team SK Telecom T1 in the final, to win the tournament.

In the LPL summer split, EDG continued their surging form into the regular season, winning the majority of their matches to finish first. This didn't last long, however, as EDG finished fourth in playoffs and didn't qualify automatically. Having to play in the Regional Finals, EDG defeated Snake Esports 2-0 and then Invictus Gaming 3-1 to qualify for Worlds.

At Worlds, EDG was put in a group with former MSI rivals SK Telecom T1 as well as H2k-Gaming and Bangkok Titans. Despite a few shaky games, EDG only lost their two games against SKT and won their other four, advancing to the knockout stage. They would face Fnatic in the Quarterfinals and despite subbing out AmazingJ in favor of veteran Koro1, EDG was defeated 0-3 and finished 4th-8th.

2016

EDG had a rough start to the 2015 LPL Spring Split, playing several games without ClearLove. They were however able to bounce back, finishing 2nd in Group B, slightly behind Royal Never Give Up. In the playoffs, EDG was able to sweep Snake Esports 3-0 and then won automatically against Qiao Gu Reapers due to QG forfeiting the match. In the finals, EDG faced off against Royal Never Give Up and despite EDG being the favorites going into the match, they lost 1-3 and finished in 2nd place, failing to qualify for MSI. Once summer came, EDG was placed in Group A of LPL Summer. This split would be the start to EDG's resurgence as the team finished with an undefeated 16-0 regular season. In the playoffs EDG would defeat Team WE 3-2 in the semifinals, setting them up for a rematch against Royal Never Give Up. In clean fashion, EDG was able to defeat RNG in a 3-0 sweep and reclaim the LPL championship while also qualifying for Worlds as China's #1 seed.

At Worlds, EDG was drawn in Group C along with H2k-Gaming, Ahq e-Sports Club and INTZ e-Sports. Despite being a favorite in the group, they would drop a game to H2K and INTZ which forced a tiebreaker between them an H2K for 1st and 2nd place. After losing the tiebreaker and ending 2nd, they were drawn against the tournament favorites ROX Tigers in the Quarterfinals. Only winning one game, EDG lost the series 1-3 which ended their Worlds run.

Post-worlds, they attended the finals of Demacia Cup. After taking down Royal Never Give Up 3-1 in the semifinals, they faced IMay in the finals. Defeating them in a convincing 3-0 sweep, EDG took home yet another Demacia Cup trophy. After the event Deft, PawN and RapidStar departed from the team. They then picked up former ROX Tigers coach NoFe as well as Zet (formerly known as Cry) as their new AD Carry.
