Invictus Gaming is a Chinese multi-platform e-sports organization founded in August 2011.

History

Formation of the Team

Invictus Gaming was founded by Wang Si-Cong (son of Dalian Wanda Group chairman Wang Jianlin, ranked by Forbes as the third-richest man in China). He purchased the team which was then known as CCM or Catastrophic Cruel Memory, which include divisions for Starcraft II, DotA and League of Legends. The volume of said transaction amounted to 6 million US dollars.[1]

2011

Invictus Gaming's first notable appearance was in IEM Season VI - Global Challenge Guangzhou then TGA City of Heroes. IG ended the year by winning over Team WE for a chance to represent in World Cyber Games Grand Finals. The team was able to finish first in the group that include Team Dignitas among others, but were later on defeated by North American powerhouse CLG Prime.

2012

IG also qualified for IEM Kiev through the Asian qualifiers but were unable to secure visas in time to participate.[2] They qualified for IEM World Championship in Hanover as well, but unfortunately had visa issues again and were not able to participate in the event.[3] Long time member and then captain Wh1t3zZ left the team to join Canis Lupus Campestris in March.[4] In May, PDD, former EHOME player, joined as the starting top laner to complete the roster revamp.

On July 28th, Invictus Gaming's new lineup won 1st place in the China Regional Finals which qualified them for Worlds 2012. Invictus was matched against Azubu Frost, a heavily favored Korean team, in their first group stage game. The team's early control and aggressive roaming gave them an advantage, but a Baron steal plus a well executed teamfight from the oponent resulted in their defeat. However, Invictus was quick to collect themselves and was able to come up with quick fixes against CLG Prime and SK Gaming, thus resulting to relatively lopsided matches. They qualified to the quarterfinals as the second team from their group. Unfortunately, their battle for the championship trophy would end there, as they got knocked out by Russian powerhouse Moscow Five (0-2). Although they have a strong early game that allowed them to establish early advantages, their misstapes in the mid game caused them the opportunity to move forward to the semifinals. Invictus Gaming then finished 5th-8th place and took home $ 75,000.

2013

Invictus Gaming had a strong showing in Spring Season, taking 1st seed for the regular season with a 22-6 record. This qualified them for the Playoffs where they were pitted against Positive Energy in the Semifinals. Surprisingly, the team lost (0-2) and dropped to the 3rd place match where they meet Team WE and beat them (2-1), securing their third place spot.

The Summer Season, however, did not go as planned. The team found themselves in fifth place for the regular season with a 10-11 record, failing to qualify for the playoffs and World Championship.

2014

IG competed in the Spring Season and were able to advance to the Spring Playoffs as the fourth seed. The team managed to win over Oh My God (2-1) and advanced to the finals. However, the team lost in a dominating series against EDward Gaming (0-3).

2015

KT Rolster Arrows' mid laner and jungler, RooKie and KaKAO, were signed by the team in hopes of qualifying for the [[World Championship 2015|Worlds Championship. Their Spring Split performance was mediocre as they ended at fifth place with an 8-8-6 record. They did qualify for the Playoffs where they beat Vici Gaming (3-1) in the quarterfinals, pushing them forward to semifinals against EDward Gaming. The team lost (0-3) but was able to secure third place after beating Snake Esports (3-1). In the Summer Season, IG took the third place in the regular season with an 8-8-6 record. Qualifying for the Summer Playoffs they against Vici Gaming (3-2) in the quarterfinals and played Qiao Gu in the semis. The team lost (3-2) and were bound for the third place match up yet again. Facing EDward Gaming, IG took home the victory (3-1) and secured their third place spot.

The team qualified for the Regional Finals and was able to qualify for Worlds as the third seed from the region. This was achieved by the team after winning against Qiao Gu (2-0), losing against EDward Gaming, and winning over Qiao Gu in the lower bracket final.

At Worlds, IG was grouped together with Cloud9, Fnatic and ahq e-Sports Club. Back to their mediocre performance, IG disappointed with a a 2-4 record that knocked them out of the tournament.
