History

2014

In May 2014, Tt Esport and Boba Net form Team Miracle, they competed in 2014 Vietnam Championship Series A Summer under the name Tt Miracle Boba. When the first round of Group Stage ended, they had 3 draws and 4 losses, stood at 8th place of 8 participants. Before the second round, the captain of Season 2 World Championship's participant Saigon Jokers, Junie joined the team and not only help them to avoid relegated but also nearly get the ticket to playoffs round.

2015

After season 4, three well-known players of Vietnam, Archie, QTV and GoNy left Saigon Jokers to reunite with Junie and Navy at Team Miracle. That roster is known as Vietnam's dream team, and they decided to rename to Boba Marines with the ambition to overthrow Saigon Jokers and begin a new era. But they fail to qualify for 2015 GPL Spring and had to struggle at the beginning of 2015 Vietnam Championship Series A Spring, Navy was lacking teamwork and decided to leave. Marines had many trials with players and finished at 3rd place, qualifying for 2015 GPL Summer. At mid season, they had Optimus join from 2015 GPL Spring's winner Saigon Fantastic Five, then they won the VCSA Summer Split, but once again failed to win GPL.

2016

Except the minor tounament, 2016 King of SEA, Boba Marines had not gain any achievement in season 6. They finished 3rd place in 2016 Vietnam Championship Series A Spring, and 4th in 2016 Mountain Dew Championship Series Summer. From 2016, GPL also changed the structure which only allow the champions in SEA countries to play in the tournament, making the Marines unable to compete in another season of GPL.</div>

2017

After a dissappointing season, Boba Marines decided to release its entire roster except for Optimus and Archie. With new sponsors, GIGABYTE and Adonis Icyber Gaming, the team renamed to Marines Esports, and got good new players, especially All-Star Barcelona 2016 Jungler for GPL Team, Levi. They then won 2017 Mountain Dew Championship Series Spring and 2017 GPL Spring with no loss match, qualifying them for the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational.

At MSI, the Marines ended the Play-In group stage at 1st place, with a 5-1 record, only dropping a game against LCL's representative, Virtus.pro. Advancing to the 2nd round, the team faced Team SoloMid and won the first 2 games of the series, before they were reverse swept, ending the match at 2-3. They then defeated BAU SuperMassive in the 3rd round (3-1) to make it to the Group Stage. Although the team failed to make it out of the Group Stage, they still managed to secure a Group Stage spot for the GPL region at the 2017 World Championship.
