Gravity was previously a North American team.

History

2015 Preseason

Gravity was established in January 2015, rebranded from Curse Academy.[1] Due to Sale of Sponsorship rule changes for the 2015 Season[2], the Curse brand was required to be pulled from the team that represented them; however, Gravity inherited the LCS spot that Curse Academy had acquired via the Expansion Tournament. Gravity's initial starting roster included Hauntzer, Saintvicious, Keane, Cop, and Bunny FuFuu.

2015 Season

After the third week of the Spring Season, Gravity's coach SoulDra left the team. Two weeks later, he was replaced by LS.[3] Gravity's record after LS joined the team was 6-4, bringing their overall record to 10-8 and earning fifth place along with a playoff spot. In the quarterfinals, Gravity fell 1-3 to Team Impulse, earning 10 Championship Points for the season. After the split ended, Gravity underwent changes in two positions: Saintvicious left to become the coach for Team Coast and was replaced by Move, a Korean jungler who had previously played for AD Gaming; while Altec joined from the recently relegated Winterfox, replacing Cop.[4]

In the summer split, Gravity finished each week in at worst fourth position, even holding sole possession of first place for weeks 7 and 8; however, they lost both of their games in the final week and ended the season in fourth, after a tiebreaker loss to Team Impulse. In the playoff quarterfinals, Gravity lost to Team SoloMid, leaving them with a year-long total of 30 Championship Points, and qualifying for the regional finals in fifth place. They lost immediately in the gauntlet, reverse swept by first-round opponent Cloud9, who went on to qualify to Worlds.

2016 Preseason

On December 18th, Gravity sold its LCS slot to new team Echo Fox and disbanded.[5]
