Star Horn Royal Club is a Chinese organization, successor of the original Royal Club founded in May 2012.


Royal Club Huang Zu started off the year with their participation in the G-League 2012 Season 2, finished at 3-4th place after losing against Team WE 1-3. They then attended GIGABYTE StarsWar League/Season 2 in March but got knocked out in the Group Stage. By finishing 2nd in TGA Winter 2012 they were directly invited to the first LPL Spring season. In June, Royal Club Huang Zu finished 5th in 2013 LPL Spring, went 15-13 in the Group Stage and did not qualify for playoffs. One day after, they participated in the NVIDIA Game Festival 2013 and placed second after losing against Team WE in the finals. In July, Royal HZ took part in StarsWar 8 tournament. They got knocked out in the semifinals, lost 0-2 to iG. At the end of July, they once again lost 0-2 to iG in the semifinals of IEM Season VIII - Shanghai and finished 3-4th. In September, Royal HZ qualified for the Season 3 China Regional Finals after finishing 2nd in the 2013 LPL Summer/Regular Season with the result of 13-8. In the Season 3 China Regional Finals, Royal HZ made an amazing comeback, went from the Loser's bracket to defeat OMG in the Grand Finals, claimed the first place and not only a spot in the Season 3 World Championship but the huge advantage of being placed directly in the quarterfinals past the group stages.

At the S3 Championship, Royal Club would be a dark horse team in the quarterfinals as not being well known outside the Asian scene and being in their first major tournament in North America. Their first match would be against a team they are exceptionally familiar with, OMG. In the first match of bracket stage, the two Chinese teams would reenact the Chinese Regional Finals to see who would advance and who would be eliminated from the tournament. OMG had been seen as one of the strongest teams in the Group stage, losing only once out of their games but Royal Club were able to play a well prepared plan going into the match. They conquered their counterpart with a 2-0 victory, advancing to face Europe's top seed, Fnatic. The series would lead to a back and forth heavy hitting battle between the regions, with Royal able to win the final game, 3-1. Huang Zu found themselves in the ultimate spotlight in the grand finals against favorited Korean team SK Telecom T1. The anticipated match led to Royal Club being overwhelmed by SK T1, losing 0-3, but taking home a very respectable 2nd place with a nice prize pool.

After S3, Tabe and Whit3zZ unilaterally retired, forcing Royal to forfeit 2013 LPL Summer Playoffs. Royal sells LMQ (a merger of Royal Tian Ci and Livemore) and rebrands to Star Horn Royal Club, forming an entirely new roster only retaining Uzi. LMQ ultimately came to USA. After struggling in 2014 LPL Spring, SHRC bought InSec and Zero from Korea, one of the first Chinese Clubs to import Korean players. They went on to win 2014 Season China Regional Finals, topping World Championship Group B, and eliminate then two-time LPL Champion Edward Gaming in Quarterfinals, knocking out OMG once again in Semifinals, both series went to 5 games. In the final showdown with apparently invincible Samsung Galaxy White, SHRC pulled their best to win a game, but ultimately lost 3-1.

After S4 Uzi suddenly announced transfer to rival OMG, leaving SHRC without a proper ADC. Namei from EDG would join SHRC, but this occured after transfer deadline, so Namei is prohibited to play for SHRC until March. During this period SHRC would be forced to use HYY, who was a free agent, as ADC. After Namei started to play for SHRC, the club would once again be wrecked by InSec's injury at Chongqing in preparation for Demacia Cup 2015 Spring. Blank (from LSPL club Energy Pacemaker.Carries, have no matches to play for his own club in Spring) will substitute for SHRC for the remaining Demacia Cup and LPL.

SHRC finished 10th in LPL Spring Season and have to play relegation/promotion playoff. InSec recovered by the time of LPL promotion, and SHRC swept Young Glory in a clean 3-0. It was idely believed that they would retain LPL spot, however the next match would be a disaster for SHRC, with their full roster lost 0-3 by Gamtee Fenghui (11th LPL). By relegation, SHRC was officially eliminated from 2015 Season World Championship.

On May 14, 2015, SHRC, Gamtee, and Vici Gaming reached mutual understanding in one of the most complex club acquisitions in League of Legends history: SHRC will buy Vici Potential Gaming's LPL spot, Vici Potential Gaming will sell their own LPL spot (to SHRC), buy Gamtee's LPL spot and rename to Unlimited Potential. The new club under Royal banner will compete in the LPL, with SHRC--now another club under Royal banner remaining in LSPL. The majority of ex-VG.P roster would not remain on Royal but transfer to UP, and ex-SHRC roster, ex-Gamtee roster would be selected to play for LPL squad of Royal or SHRC based on individual merit.
