Moscow Five, abbreviated as M5, is a Russian eSports organization.
Founded in 2001, M5 had roots in Counter-Strike 1.6, WarCraft 3, FIFA, and DotA. In December 2011, Moscow Five recruited the players of Team Empire, who had qualified to compete at IEM Kiev. This team went on to be a dominant force in the European League of Legends scene throughout Season 2. Following the July 2012 arrest of Moscow Five CEO Dmitry "ddd1ms" Smelyi, the organization released its League of Legends team in January 2013 due to lack of funding. 
The organization acquired the roster of Russian Force in August 2014.
