Invictus Gaming is a Chinese multi-platform e-sports organization founded in August 2011.

History

Formation of Invictus Gaming

Invictus Gaming was created by Wang Si-Cong (son of Dalian Wanda Group chairman Wang Jianlin, ranked by Forbes as the third-richest man in China), who purchased the team which was until then known as Catastrophic Cruel Memory (CCM), including divisions for Starcraft II, DotA and LoL. The transaction volume amounted to 6 million USD. [1]

Season 1

Invictus Gaming had notable appearances in IEM Season VI - Global Challenge Guangzhou and TGA City of Heroes. The team finished the year by beating Team WE to represent China in the 2011 World Cyber Games Grand Finals. They finished 1st in their group which included Dignitas among others but were knocked out later by North American powerhouse Counter Logic Gaming Prime.

Season 2

IG qualified for IEM Kiev in the Asian qualifiers but did not receive their visas in time to participate. [2] They also qualified for the IEM World Championship in Hanover, but were denied to travel because of visa issues once again. [3]Long time member and captain Wh1t3zZ left iG for Canis Lupus Campestris in March of 2012. [4] In May, former EHOME player Pdd joined as the top laner to complete a total roster revamp. On July 28th, iG's new lineup took 1st place in the Season Two Chinese Regional Finals, qualifying for the Season 2 World Championship. In early October, iG traveled to Los Angeles to take part in the Season 2 World Championship. In the first game of the group stage, Invictus was pitted against the heavily favored Azubu Frost. IG's aggressive roaming and early control allowed them to build a lead, but a Baron Nashor steal and well executed teamfight by Frost resulted in a defeat for the Chinese squad. However, Invictus quickly collected themselves and made quick work of CLG Prime and SK Gaming in relatively lopsided matches. They qualified through to the quarterfinals as the second team from Group A. Unfortunately for iG, their run at the championship would end there, as they were knocked out soundly two games to none by Moscow Five. Although iG's strong early game continued to established early advantages, mid game missteps in both games gave the Russian powerhouse the opportunities they needed to turn the games around and take the victory in the best-of-three. Invictus Gaming finished 5th-8th place and took home $ 75,000.

Season 3

Invictus Gaming played a strong Spring Season, taking 1st seed in the regular season with an 22-6 record. They advanced to the Spring Playoffs where they played against Positive Energy in the Semifinals. Surprisingly, they lost 2-0 to drop to the 3rd place match where they faced Team WE and beat them 2-1 to take third place. The Summer Season didn't go as planned for IG, as they found themselves in fifth place with an 10-11 record at the end of the season, missing out on playoffs and not making it to the Season 3 World Championship.

2014 Season

Invictus Gaming competed in the Spring Season and advanced to the Spring Playoffs as fourth seed from the regular season. IG managed to beat Oh My God 2-1 to advance to the finals where they lost in a dominating series to EDward Gaming 3-0, taking second seed in playoffs. The Summer Season went as well as the 2013 summer season and IG didn't even manage to qualify for the Summer Playoffs.

2015 Season

IG went on to take KT Rolster Arrows' mid laner and jungler, RooKie and KaKAO, under contract to hope to qualify for Worlds. They played a mediocre 2015 LPL Spring as they took fifth place with a 8-8-6 record, qualifying for the Spring Playoffs. They beat Vici Gaming 3-1 in the quarterfinals to advance to the semifinals to face EDward Gaming. They lost 3-0 but they managed to win the third place match against Snake Esports 3-1. In the Summer Season, IG took third place in the regular season with another 8-8-6 record to advance to the Summer Playoffs. They played against Vici Gaming in the quarterfinals and beat them 3-2 to advance to the semifinals to play Qiao Gu. Here, they lost 3-2 and were forced to play in the third place match against EDward Gaming]. IG took the series 3-1 and ended in third place in playoffs again. They then played in the Regional Finals for a chance to qualify for Worlds 2015. IG played against Qiao Gu in the first round and won convincingly 2-0 to advance to the second round to play against EDward Gaming. Unfortunately, IG couldn't repeat their round 1 performance and got beaten by EDG 3-1. They dropped to the lower bracket final and played against QG. IG would take the series 3-0 and qualify for Worlds 2015 as third seed from China. At worlds, they were placed in a group with Fnatic, Cloud 9, and ahq e-Sports Club. IG disappointed with a mediocre 2-4 record and were knocked out of the tournament in last place.
