G2 Esports is a Spanish eSports team. They were formerly known as Gamers2. They currently compete under the name G2 Kinguin in representation of their sponsor Kinguin. The team is fairly young, having only been part of the League of Legends scene since 2015. However, where they lack in experience, they more than enough make up for in skill. Having won multiple EU LCS playoffs, and having been in both the 2016 and the 2017 worlds, they are one of the strongest European teams.
Cloud9 is a North American eSports team formed by the former roster of Quantic Gaming following its dissolution. The team currently competes under the name Cloud9 G2A.

Team Solo Mid

Samsung Galaxy, originally founded as a Starcraft team in 2005. In September 2013, the organization formed Samsung Ozone and Samsung Blue. Ozone consisted of Homme, DanDy, dade, imp, Mata, and Looper. After both teams performing okay, the decision was made to merge both teams, Creating Samsung Galaxy. Defeating the legendary SK Telecom T1 3:0 for the title in the 2017 worlds, has quickly shot this team to legend status. However, whether this will remain the same after KSV has purchased the entire championship team, no one knows.
SK Telecom T1
SK Telecom T1, founded in 2004, is a professional gaming team based in South Korea. SK Telecom T1 is the only team to win the World Championship three times and also the only team to win the “Triple Crown”: victories at the IEM World Championship, Riot Mid-Season Invitational, and Riot World Championship. In February 2013, the organization created a new roster, which consisted of Faker, bengi, Piglet, PoohManDu, and Impact. Since then SKT has had a few roster changes. However, with Faker as their midlaner, SKT soon became an unstoppable force. SKT managed to get into 4 world championships since 2012, winning 3 of them. SKT has been known as the emperor of the League of Legends competitive scene, standing undefeated until LCS Worlds 2017.
DAMWON Gaming (also known as DWG KIA)
Move over! DAMWON is the new kid on the block and is taking over the South Korean LoL landscape by storm. Since 2019 they are just scraping medals everywhere. This is one team that flourished under the pandemic. A first place at the 2020 World Championship and a silver medaille on the 2021 World Championship are a proof of that. Expect to see much more of ShowMaker and his friends.
