Phoenix1 is a North American team.
Phoenix1 was announced on May 23rd, 2016, as the team inheriting the NA LCS Summer Season seed previously belonging to Team Impulse. On May 26th, their starting roster was announced and included zig, Brandini, Inori, Slooshi, Pirean, Mash, and Gate.
Faced with visa problems for Inori, the team also added a substitute jungler Zentinel to their roster, who competed for them for the first three weeks of the LCS. In that time, Phoenix1 lost all of their series and won only two games total, cementing themselves in last place, behind Echo Fox. Their winless streak continued after Inori's return and through their first series of the fifth week, at which point they had a 3-18 game record and 0-9 series record. In the second series of that week, however, they picked up their first series win against Apex Gaming, with a comeback 2-1 victory after dropping the first game. After this first win, their record improved significantly, and in the second half of the season they went a combined 5-4 — not enough to keep them out of relegations, but enough to surpass both Echo Fox and NRG in the standings for a top seed in the promotion tournament, where they requalified for the LCS with an easy 3-0 win over Echo Fox.
Partway through the spring split of the 2017 NA LCS, former Cloud9 jungler Meteos joined the team to substitute for Inori. At the time, the team were competing for a playoff berth, significantly outperforming their previous split.
