Flash Wolves is an eSports organization based in Taiwan. Their League of Legends team first formed after the draft of Taiwan e-Sports League (TeSL) Draft Season.

History

Season 3

The first season of the TeSL consisted of a double round robin after which promising players were drafted by professional organizations. The yoe IRONMEN, the predecessor to the modern Flash Wolves, joined the League of Legends scene by drafting nine Taiwanese players from the TeSL draft. After competing in the second, professional round of the TeSL, the IRONMEN placed last with a 4-21 record.

Despite their dismal first outing, the team was invited to the Season 3 Taiwan Regional Finals and earned a playoff spot with a 3-7 group stage record. Prior to the bracket stage, four of the team's players departed, rendering the team unable to compete in the remainder of the tournament. The IRONMEN forfeited their match and reformed their roster on October 21st, adopting the roster of the recently disbanded Gamania Bears and rebranding as the yoe Flash Wolves. The Gamania Bears had automatically qualified for both the 2014 LoL Nova League (LNL) Winter and 2014 GPL Winter, and passed their berths to the Flash Wolves.

Additionally, the team was able to compete at the 2013 World Cyber Games (WCG) Taiwan Qualifiers, where they defeated two Taiwanese powerhouses in Taipei Assassins and ahq e-Sports Club, earning a berth in the main tournament. The Flash Wolves finished second in groups, but lost in the quarterfinals to World Elite and achieved a top eight finish.

Unfortunately, the team was unable to compete in the Riot-sanctioned GPL due to a newly implemented age restriction that required players to be seventeen years old to play in any official league. In LNL Winter, the Flash Wolves took fourth place with a 13-8 record and earned a spot in the 2014 GPL Spring.

Season 4

In the 2014 GPL Spring, FW finished 5-5 and qualified for playoffs, but were swept in the best-of-five and failed to advance. The yoe Flash Wolves returned to the LNL that summer and finished 12-2.

Flash Wolves were invited to compete in the qualifiers for IEM Taipei, which would take place in January 2015. After a third-place finish in the qualifiers, FW attended the main event and took first place, again taking down AHQ and TPA in the process.

2015 Season

Prior to the start of Season 5, the LMS was established to host competition among top-ranked Taiwanese teams. As a veteran of the region's competitive scene, the Flash Wolves were invited to the qualifiers and earned a berth. In the LMS Spring Season, FW dominated the competition and finished 19-2, but fell 1-3 in the playoff finals to AHQ.

During the intercession between the LMS Spring and Summer seasons, the yoe Flash Wolves competed at the IEM World Championship in Katowice, resulting from their IEM Taipei victory. In the tournament's group stages, FW took down respective North American and European favorites Cloud9 and SK Gaming. In IEM Katowice's semifinals, the yoe Flash Wolves fell to eventual tournament winner Team SoloMid 1-2, becoming the only team to take a game off the North American team.

The yoe Flash Wolves dropped their sponsorship label and became simply the Flash Wolves before competing in the LMS Summer Season. In the league's then-recently adopted best-of-two format, FW finished second to AHQ with a 9-3-2 record (W-L-T). The Flash Wolves subsequently fell 1-3 in the league playoff semifinals to Hong Kong Esports.

With a second and third place LMS finish under their belt, the Flash Wolves had obtained a tie for the most LMS Championship Points behind AHQ, and were invited to the 2015 Taiwan Regional Finals. There, FW avenged their playoff loss by defeating Hong Kong Esports 3-2 and acquiring a spot in the 2015 Season World Championship.

At the World Championship, the FW were expected by many analysts to have one of the weakest showings of any team in attendance. However, after a 4-2 group stage with wins over favorites KOO Tigers and Counter Logic Gaming, the Flash Wolves emerged first from groups, becoming the first team in two years to finish ahead of a Korean team in groups at Worlds. In the tournament quarterfinals, FW lost 1-3 to Origen, earning a top eight finish.

Season 6

Flash Wolves established themselves even further as a domestic powerhouse in the 2016 Spring Split, led by the mid-jungle duo of Maple and Karsa. After a second place finish in the Regular Season, they went on to defeat Ahq e-Sports Club 3-0 in the Spring Playoffs Finals and thus secured a spot at the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational.

In the Double Round Robin group stage Flash Wolves tied for third place alongside SK Telecom T1, with a 2-0 record against the Korean team, International Wild Card representative SuperMassive eSports and EU LCS champions G2 Esports and a losing 0-2 record against the NA LCS winners Counter Logic Gaming and LPL champions Royal Never Give Up. They were then eliminated in the Bracket Stage Semifinals by CLG in a 1-3 loss.

The Summer Split saw an intense battle for first place between the Flash Wolves, ahq and J Team, formerly Taipei Assassins; in the end, the FW secured second place in the Regular Season and automatically qualified for the Playoffs Semifinals, where they met and defeated ahq in a close 3-2 series. The Flash Wolves then proceeded to sweep J Team 3-0 in the Finals and achieved a spot in Pool 1 for the 2016 Season World Championship group draw.

The FW were drafted as first seed in Group B of the 2016, along with SK Telecom T1, I May and Cloud9. In both Weeks they showed an impressive understanding of the early game, with Karsa creating massive advantages for his team in the first 20 minutes of the game, while at the same time displaying a worrying lack of decisiveness when it came to closing the game: they were unable to convert their early snowball into a victory, as seen in their Week 1 matches against both IMay and C9. Though they did manage to give SKT their only loss in the Group Stage, the Flash Wolves ended thier Worlds experience in last place with a 2-4 score.
