Royal Club is a Chinese team. In December 2016 they rebranded from Star Horn Royal Club, which had been the successor of the original Royal Club founded in May 2012.
Royal Club Huang Zu started their first season as a team by participating in the G-League 2012 Season 2, where they finished at 3rd-4th place after losing 1-3 against Team WE. They then attended GIGABYTE StarsWar League/Season 2 in March but got knocked out in the Group Stage. Due to finishing 2nd at TGA Winter 2012, they were directly invited to the first LPL Spring Season.
In June, Royal Club Huang Zu finished 5th in 2013 LPL Spring, going 15-13 in the Group Stage and therefore not qualifying for playoffs. On the next day, they participated in the NVIDIA Game Festival 2013 and placed second after losing against Team WE in the finals. In July, Royal Club Huang Zu took part in the StarsWar 8 tournament. They got knocked out in the semifinals, losing 0-2 to iG. At the end of July, they once again lost 0-2 to iG in the semifinals of IEM Season VIII - Shanghai, finishing 3rd-4th. In September, Royal Club Huang Zu qualified for the Season 3 China Regional Finals after finishing 2nd in the 2013 LPL Summer Regular Season, going 13-8. At the Season 3 China Regional Finals, Royal Club Huang Zu made an amazing comeback, going from the Loser's bracket to defeating OMG in the grand final, claiming first place and also a spot at the Season 3 World Championship as China's first seed, starting directly in the quarterfinals instead of having to play in the group stage.
At the Season 3 World Championship, Royal Club was considered the underdog in the quarterfinals due to not being well known outside of the Asian scene and competing at their first major tournament outside of China. In their first match, they faced off against a team they were exceptionally familiar with, OMG, essentially reenacting the Chinese Regional's Grand Final. OMG had been seen as one of the strongest teams in the group stage, losing only one out of four games. However, Royal Club were able to overcome their counterpart with a 2-0 victory, advancing to face Europe's first seed, Fnatic. The series would lead to a very back and forth battle between the two region's top teams and ended with Royal Club being able to close it out 3-1. They now found themselves in the grand finals against the heavily-favored Korean team SK Telecom T1. The anticipated match led to Royal Club being overwhelmed by SKT T1, losing 0-3, but taking home a very respectable second place. After the Season 3 World Championship, Tabe and Wh1t3zZ unilaterally retired, forcing Royal to forfeit their 2013 LPL Summer Playoffs spot.
In May of 2014, Royal Club sold LMQ (a merger of Royal Tian Ci and Livemore) and rebranded to Star Horn Royal Club, forming an almost entirely new roster, only retaining Uzi. LMQ ultimately chose to compete as a team in the North American region. After struggling in 2014 LPL Spring, Star Horn Royal Club ended up acquiring InSec and Zero, who were the first Korean players to be bought by a Chinese team. They went on to win the 2014 Season China Regional Finals, once again securing China's first seed at the 2014 World Championship and being placed in Group B. After going 5-1 in the group stages, only dropping one game to the North American team TSM, they eliminated the two-time LPL Champions Edward Gaming in the quarterfinals. In the semifinals, they once again managed to knock out OMG in a 5 game series. In the grand finals, they were once again forced to face off against a Korean powerhouse, this time in the form of Samsung White. Star Horn Royal Club managed to win just one game, ultimately losing the series 1-3 but once again securing second place at the World Championship. At the end of 2014, Uzi surprisingly announced his departure from Star Horn Royal Club and ended up joining rival team OMG.
Being left without their superstar AD Carry Uzi, Star Horn Royal Club managed to acquire the highly praised Chinese AD Carry NaMei, formerly from Edward Gaming. However, due to the acquisition taking place after the LPL's player transfer deadline, NaMei was prohibited from competing until March. During this period, Star Horn Royal Club was forced to use HYY, who had never played on a professional team before, as their starting AD Carry. After NaMei started playing for Star Horn Royal Club, the team's unlucky streak would be continued, this time by InSec's injury at Chongqing in preparation for Demacia Cup 2015 Spring. Blank, from the LSPL team Energy Pacemaker.Carries, ended up substituting for InSec for the remainder of the Demacia Cup and LPL season.
Star Horn Royal Club finished 10th in LPL Spring Season and were forced to play in the 2015 LPL Summer Promotion tournament. Being able to field InSec, who had recovered from his injuries just in time, as their starting jungler, Star Horn Royal Club managed to sweep the LSPL team Young Glory in a clean 3-0 fashion. At this point, everyone believed that Star Horn Royal Club would easily retain their LPL spot. However, their next series against Gamtee went catastrophically, ending with Star Horn Royal Club losing 0-3 and consequently being relegated into the LSPL.
On May 14th, Star Horn Royal Club, Gamtee, and Vici Gaming came to a mutual agreement which resulted in one of the most complex team acquisitions in League of Legends history: Vici Potential Gaming sold their own LPL spot to Royal, bought Gamtee's LPL spot and then renamed to Unlimited Potential. The new team under the Royal banner competed in the LPL and Star Horn Royal Club ended up competing in the LSPL with a different roster. The majority of the former Vici Potential Gaming roster did not remain on Royal, but instead transfered to Unlimited Potential.
