It is the 3rd professional LOL e-sports team in Taiwan. Retty, which is the CEO of Garena Taiwan and coach of TPA, has also been the coach of TPS.

TPS has been distributed to the dead group, which has to face off 2 powerhouse in China, Team WE and Invictus Gaming and the winner of IEM Season VII - Global Challenge Cologne, Reapered and SK Telecom T1. TPS is doing a great job by beating SKT T1 and All Gamers. After socre a 1-1 tie to iG and Korean NaJin Shield and lose to WE, TPS get the 3rd place and drop to loser bracket. And they were beated by the OGN Winter's winner, NaJin Sword. Although they only get the 5th place, they still show the power of the new team in Taiwan.

They force to join the new professional tournament in Taiwan, Taiwan eSports League 2013 and play with ahq e-Sports Club and 4 new professional team in Taiwan, Wayi Spider, Gamania Bears, e-Sports Dragons Pro, yoe IRONMEN. TPS dominate the whole league by 20 wins and only 5 loses. After Toyz and Stanley leaves TPA, TPS has the high hope to go to Los Angeles and join the Season 3 World Championship.

Waterloo in S3 Taiwan Finals

With no surprise, TPS makes to Season 3 Taiwan Regional Finals by beating ahq and Wayi Spider. However, in the finals, they deafed by Steak and Gamania Bears. By losing 2-3 in the Grand Finals, TPS lose the ticket to Season 3.

New Blood from TeSL

After Season 3, 2 new members from TeSL joins TPS. Winds from Gamania Bears and Awei from Wayi Spider and it force the old members OhReaL to lose his spot in TPS. After OhReaL change his position from Jungle to Mid, NeXAbc got benched in 2014 GPL Winter. These changes help TPS to beat Mineski and Singapore Sentinels and face the sister team TPA.

Unfortunately, TPS was beaten by TPA by scoring 2-3 in GPL Winter Finals. After the matches, two of the main player in TPS leaves in January. NeXAbc retired and MiSTakE want to take a rest from e-Sports. That's mean the original line up of Taipei Assassins is all leaves from the players in e-Sports.
