ahq e-Sports Club is an eSports organization based in Taiwan. Their League of Legends team formed in September 2012.
Formation of ahq e-Sports Club
In September 2012, after Corsair failed to travel to Season 2 World Championship, ahq force to merged both Corsair and SSWIE and renames to ahq e-Sports Club. UDJ, ArTie, Prydz, Mralbis from Corsair and GreenTea from SSWIE are the first line-up of ahq.
In 2013, the captain UDJ retires and GarnetDevil joins. ahq e-Sports Club has been invited to join Garena Premier League 2013 Spring Season to face 2 of the famous team in Taiwan and Southeast Asia, Taipei Assassins and Singapore Sentinels. In March, 2 of the famous players, westdoor and Lantyr force to join ahq and become the main players of ahq. However, ahq still cannot beat TPA and SGS. They finish GPL Spring Season in 3rd place.
Dominance in GPL
In GPL Summer, ahq become stronger, beating TPA and SGS time after time and winning GPL Summer with a 24-4 record. They make it to the GPL Finals to face the winner of Spring Season, Taipei Assassins. At the same time, ahq also join TeSL and face the other strong team in Taiwan, Taipei Snipers. ahq finish the tournament in 2nd place.
Although ahq have high hopes to go to Season 3 World Championship, they are beaten by the TeSL team Gamania Bears and end their summer, though they do still beat TPA in 2013 GPL Finals.
After Season 3, ahq acquire Naz from Wayi Spider while Lantyr move to ahq Fighter, ahq does a great job in 2014 LNL Winter, they win 20 matches and only loses 1 game. However, it is not that successfully for ahq in 2014 GPL Winter, they lose to Taipei Snipers and only get the 3rd place.
Ahq had a successful run in 2014 GPL Spring group stages, where they achieved a record of 9 wins and 1 loss. In the playoffs, they dominated the Singapore Sentinels 3-0 before dispatching the Saigon Jokers 3-1 in Quarterfinals and Semifinals, respectively. In the finals, however they lost to Taipei Assassins 2-3, and ended playoffs in 2nd place.
2014 GPL Summer, starting in June of 2014, featured another successful run in the group stages by Ahq, achieving a record of 8 wins and 2 losses. In the playoffs, they won 3-0 against Bangkok Titans in Quarterfinals, won 3-1 of Logitech G Fighter (Full Louis got disqualified from GPL this season due to using players who are not having 17 full years, SofM and Jeff. Logitech G Fighter replaced them to play Semi-Finals.) in Semifinals, mirroring their performance earlier in the year. Unfortunately, they would go on to lose to the Taipei Assassins 0-3 in the Finals, achieving another 2nd place record in the playoffs.
While they are unable to become the champions of 2014 GPL Summer, their dominating performance in the 2014 Season Garena Regional Finals where they emerged as the #1 Seed in the Taiwan and SEA region by beating the Saigon Fantastic Five in the finals, allowed them to participate in the 2014 Season World Championship
Seeded into Group A of the 2014 Season World Championship in Taiwan, they play against EDward Gaming, Samsung White and Dark Passage. Their 3 wins and 3 loss record allowed them to bring their playoff dreams to a tiebreaker against EDward Gaming , whom Ahq unfortunately lost to.
After a dissappointing run in the 2014 Season World Championship, ahq acquire Mountain and OhReaL from Logitech Snipers, Ziv from HK Attitude Mage, MrAlbis from Logitech G Fighter, while Naz and GarnetDevil leave. Prydz also becomes the analyst.
The new roster played and qualified for IEM Season IX - Taipei in IEM Season IX - Taipei Qualifiers, where they won 2-0 against the Logitech Snipers, 2-0 against Hong Kong Esports, and 2-1 against the Yoe Flash Wolves in the winner's bracket finals. At IEM Season IX - Taipei, Ahq would recieve a quarterfinal bye for winning the winner's breacket finals, but would then be defeated 0-2 against the Yoe Flash Wolves.
Season 5 marked the start of the LoL Master Series, a new league exclusive to teams from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao. ahq were invited to its qualifiers, where they went 3-0 in their group to earn a berth in the regular season. They finished in fourth place in the round robin, with a 13-8 record, but went on to win the playoffs with 3-0 victories over Hong Kong Esports and Taipei Assassins followed by a 3-1 finals victory over Flash Wolves.
Due to their spring split victory, ahq were invited to play at the Mid-Season Invitational. Finishing 3-2 in the group stage, ahq advanced to the bracket but were knocked out immediately by eventual tournament winners EDG.
After the Mid-Season Invitational, ahq went on to sweep their way through the Summer Season, with a win-tie-loss record of 11-3-0. Placed directly into the finals of the gauntlet-style playoffs, they once again won the season, this time beating Hong Kong Esports 3-0 and automatically qualifying for the 2015 Season World Championship.
At Worlds, ahq were seeded into Group B, along with Fnatic, Invictus Gaming, and Cloud9 and went 3-3, advancing to the playoffs after a tiebreaker victory over Cloud9 (giving the North American team their fourth loss in a row that day). Their World Championship run ended in the quarterfinals, where they were drawn against tournament favorites SK Telecom, earning a top 8 finish.
During the 2016 Spring Season ahq was consistently the top team of the League, ending in first place with an impressive 11-3-0 record. However, their domestic dominance came to a sudden halt in the Playoffs Finals, where they lost 0-3 against the Flash Wolves.
ahq struggled during the whole Summer Season, without being able to take a single Best-of-2 series victory against the other two top teams, Flash Wolves and the newly formed J Team. They placed third in the end and qualified for the Summer Playoffs; their Playoffs run ended in the Semifinals match against the Flash Wolves, losing 2-3 in close fashion. Their Summer Split ranking granted ahq a spot in the Regional gauntlet, through which they qualified to the 2016 Season World Championship by beating Machi E-Sports in the Finals 3-0.
ahq were then seeded into Worlds Group C, alongside EDward Gaming, H2K and INTZ. After going 2-1 in Week 1, the Taiwanese team failed to repeat their success during Week 2, mostly due to H2k's resurgence, as they ended in third place with a 3-3 score.
