H2k-Gaming is a professional gaming organization based in the United Kingdom. They currently sponsors teams for League of Legends, Hearthstone, and Call of Duty.

History

On July 23rd, 2014, it was announced that H2k-Gaming violated the Riot Challenger Series rules by unsportsmanlike behavior when they failed to play their best and promptly end the game. H2k-Gaming was fined $300 USD.[1]

On August 6th, 2014, Riot announced that H2k-Gaming violated the Riot Challenger Series rules by not fielding a full roster for their 3rd place match in the 2014 EU Summer Series #2. H2k-Gaming was penalized with a prize money deduction of $750 USD.[2]

The team competed in the Spring Expansion Tournament, and qualified for the Offline Stage after beating Meloncats. In the Offline Stage, H2k won their first matchup against n!faculty, meaning they were one win away from the LCS. The team went on to beat GIANTS! Gaming in the Winner's Bracket Final, meaning they will be playing in the Spring Split.

2015 Season

The Spring Split itself was relatively successful for H2k-Gaming. After a shaky start, results began to pick up for the team, partly thanks to the introduction of kaSing to the roster. Impressive individual performances throughout the rest of the split helped the team to a 3rd place finish in the regular season. In the Spring Playoffs, the team beat Copenhagen Wolves in the quarterfinals, but were beaten in the semifinals in a close-fought series by eventual champions Fnatic. H2k-Gaming went on to pull off a shock victory over SK Gaming in the 3rd place match, securing themselves 50 Championship Points.

The team began to impress from the very start of the Summer Split. H2k-Gaming jostled for 2nd position with Origen throughout the regular season, with Fnatic way out in 1st place throughout. More mpressive performances ultimately helped the team to yet another 3rd place regular season finish. The Summer Playoffs also went well for the team, beating Giants Gaming in the quarterfinals of the tournament. The were beaten in the semifinals by Origen, but went on to beat Unicorns Of Love in the 3rd place match, securing the team 70 Championship Points, which meant that the team had qualified for the 2015 World Championship as Europe's #2 seed.

At the 2015 World Championship, H2k-Gaming were seeded into Group C along with SK Telecom T1, EDward Gaming, and Bangkok Titans. They picked up 2 wins in the group, both coming against BKT.The team finished the group in 3rd place, meaning they would not advance to the knockout stage of the tournament.

2016 Season

At the start of the season, H2k-Gaming were voted to play at IEM Season X - Cologne.[3] They fielded a roster including Odoamne and Ryu from their 2015 roster along with new members Jankos, FORG1VEN, and VandeR, ultimately ending tied for third alongside Fnatic.

The 2016 Spring Split saw H2k forced to replace Ryu due to VISA issues.[4] Echo Fox mid laner Selfie joined the team during as a substitute Week 3, 4 and 5. Nevertheless, H2k was consistently a top team in the EULCS, only slight behind newcomers G2 Esports during the Regular Season. They secured a Semifinals bye for the Spring Playoffs, where they lost 1-3 against Origen. They then proceeded to lose 2-3 the third place Finals against Fnatic as well, a disappointing result for one of the most hyped up line-ups in the EULCS.

Following their defeat in the final phases of the Spring Split, FORG1VEN left the team [5], with former Renegades ADC Freeze joining the lineup for the upcoming Summer Split. With new threats emerging in Giants Gaming and Splyce, contention for the top of the League was harsher than the last split; individual performance and communication issues plagued the team, as they ended the Split in fourth place after defeating Fnatic in a tiebreaker at the end of Week 9.

Two weeks before the start of the Summer Split Playoffs, FORG1VEN, who had previously rejoined the team as a sub, [6], reached the team in Germany to replace Freeze, whose wrist injury grew too severe to allow him to compete in the Playoffs.[7] Even with seemingly minimal preparation, the H2k squad managed to sweep Fnatic 3-0 in the Quarterfinals and to challenge Splyce in a close Semifinals series, which they ended up losing 2-3.

H2k managed to qualify to the 2016 Season World Championship as a second seed from Europe due to having the second-highest Championship points in the region and G2 auto-qualifying with their Summer Split Playoffs victory. They were then seeded into Group C, together with LPL champions EDward Gaming, LMS second seed Ahq e-Sports Club and International Wild Card Tournament winner INTZ e-Sports. After a tough Week 1 where they lost to both EDG and ahq, the European team swept their competition with four successive wins, including the tiebreaker for first place against the Chinese representative. They were thus drafted into the Quarterfinals against the Wildcard wonder Albus NoX Luna, a match they swept 3-0. Advancing to the Semifinals they met Samsung Galaxy, which in turn took the series 0-3 in dominating fashion, leading to the second straight Korean-only Final in a World Championship.

2017 Season

After the World Championship, three fifths of H2k's starters became unclear, as mid laner Ryu, AD carries FORG1VEN and Freeze, and support Vander each became free agents. H2k in turn signed AD carry Nuclear and support Chei of SBENU Sonicboom and Jin Air Green Wings, respectively.[8] Fnatic mid lane star Febiven, a former H2k player from their time in the Challenger Series, returned to play mid.[9]

In the new group-style format of the EU LCS, H2k was placed into Group B along with Unicorns of Love, Splyce, Origen, and Team Vitality.

As the best-performing European team at the 2016 World Championship, H2k was invited to IEM Katowice, where they qualified for the bracket stage after defeating Hong Kong Esports twice and falling only to ROX Tigers. In the semifinals, H2k lost 1-2 to the eventual tournament winners Flash Wolves, after winning the first game and holding a substantial lead in the second.
