Giants Gaming is a Spanish multi-gaming organization that picked up their first League of Legends team in July of 2012. In addition to their League of Legends team, Giants Gaming also supports players for FIFA, Dota2 and also an academy division on League of Legends and Call of Duty. For their CoD team, see their page on CoD Esportspedia.

History

The GIANTS! Gaming League of Legends division was formed July 2012. They made notable showings at tournaments such as placing 3rd at DreamHack Valencia 2012 and The Siege. It was in pre-Season 3 that GIANTS! had a huge opportunity to play in the upcoming professional league hosted by Riot, the League Championship Series, and competed for a spot onto it at the Season 3 LCS Spring Qualifiers. They were able to make it out of group stage undefeated, then had to face mousesports in the quarterfinals which decided if they would qualify to play in the LCS or not. They were able to sweep the opponent in a 2-0 set and win to compete in the 10 week event facing off against the best of Europe. The roster experienced a shaky season throughout the LCS, finishing 7th with a record of 8 - 20. This meant the team would be sent to relegation matches to prove themselves at the Season 3 LCS Summer Promotion to win back the coveted spot into the league for summer. In a close set vs Team ALTERNATE, the GIANTS! were unsuccessful winning back into the LCS, losing 3-2.

Life after LCS sent the team back into a vamped up amateur scene with them continuing to play at events, recently coming in 4th at Gfinity London 2013. On July 31st 2013, the GIANTS! Gaming organization announced that they would not renew the contracts of their League of Legends players therefore releasing them, however keeping Samux and Exterminare to possibly form a new roster.

2015 Season

The team competed in the Spring Expansion Tournament, and qualified for the Offline Stage after beating Ascension and Millenium. In the Offline Stage, GIANTS! won their first matchup against Reason Gaming, meaning they were one win away from the LCS. The team then lost to H2k-Gaming in the Winner's Bracket Final, but beat Reason Gaming in the Loser's Bracket Final, meaning they would go on to play in the LCS Spring Split.

The Spring Split itself was unsuccessful for the team, finishing in 9th place, which meant that they would play in the Summer Promotion. Here Giants Gaming faced Reason Gaming and came out victorious, securing their spot in the Summer Split.

The Summer Split was far more positive for Giants Gaming, finishing in 6th place, thanks largely to PePiiNeRO's impressive performances in particular. In the Summer Playoffs, the team were beaten in the quarterfinals by H2k-Gaming, meaning that they would pick up 20 Championship Points and go on to play in the 2015 Season Europe Regional Finals. Giants Gaming went on to lose to Team ROCCAT in Round 1 of the gauntlet.
