Flyquest is a North American multi-gaming esports team, currently competing in League of Legends' NA LCS as one of the ten teams of the franchised league.

History

On December 9, 2016 Cloud9 announced they had moved Contractz into the starting jungler position and signed Ray as a substitute top laner. Shortly after, the Cloud9 Challenger roster, who managed to qualify for the NA LCS 2017 Spring, including Balls, LemonNation, Hai, and Altec was purchased by Wes Edens, owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, and rebranded as FlyQuest.[1]

With the acquisition, FlyQuest automatically qualified to the NA LCS.

2017

The underrated FlyQuest took the NA LCS by storm, winning their first 6 games, exceeding all expectations. However, despite their best efforts, they finally reached their stumbling block against Cloud 9 in week 4 dropping the first series 1-2. Team captain Hai continued to surprise teams through the split with his off-meta picks including  Corki,  Zed,  Kassadin. Due to their aggression, and different strategies, Counter Logic Gaming's Aphromoo quoted he "hates playing FlyQuest". They continued to battle, but could never close out a series against TSM or Cloud 9. FlyQuest finished the Spring Split 9-9 taking 5th place and a seed in the [Spring Split Playoffs]. FlyQuest squared off with CLG in the quarterfinals, surging back with a reverse sweep to win the series 3-2. Unfortunately, being the lowest rank seed, they were forced to play TSM. Hai and company put up a valiant effort, but could never find momentum. TSM's superior map awareness and strategy led to a 3 - 0 sweep against FlyQuest. In the third place playoffs, they were matched against [Phoenix1] and lost in a close 2:3 series to place 4th in the spring split.

In the offseason prior to the 2017 NALCS Summer Split, the team acquired WildTurtle from Team Solomid.

Going into the 2017 NALCS Summer Split, there were high expectation for the team to at least make it to the playoffs again and qualify Worlds either as a second seed or third seed. Quite the opposite, the team was consistently in the bottom half tier of the league, performing only better than Echo Fox, Team Liquid, and Phoenix1. Still the team hung on and at the conclusion the summer split, the team secured a spot for the 2017 NALCS Regional Qualifier off of their spring split performance.

In the 2017 NALCS Regional Qualifier, the team first faced off against Team Dignitas who had a surge in performance towards the end of the regular split and was able to take off a game off of Team Solomid. Against most analysts' expectations, FlyQuest won in a 3-0 resounding fashion with much improved teamwork. Unfortunately in the next round against Counter Logic Gaming, the team failed to reverse sweep the series in 1-3 fashion, thus ending their 2017 season to the disappointment of their fans who were expecting a Cloud9 miracle gauntlet run in 2015.
