University of British Columbia
UBC eSports is a collegiate team associated with UBC eSports Association, a non-profit student organization at the University of British Columbia. UBC previously had several teams ranging from gold rank to challenger rank. Currently, they have one active team called UBC eSports or UBC eSports Premier.
UBC eSports, formerly known as UBC IvyLoL Team, was first formed by Chiyeuk, Xlcontiqu, Yiruru, Nagus, and ACM14 with the addition of a few substitutes to play in IvyLoL Pre-Season Tournament in the summer of 2011. The team picked up Manhattannn, who continues to play as the core support player for the team, and yushenbest during the IvyLoL Beta Season.
UBC previously had four teams with code names Team W, Team X, Team Y, and Team Z. With a few roster changes, Team Y and Team Z merged into the present Premier Team. Team W and Team X became inactive.
Team Z (Jurjur Gaming) was a premier team known for being the first collegiate team to reach Challenger and hitting Diamond on several other practice teams. The team qualified for the Season 3 Championship Series Qualifiers despite turning down the invitation. They have also consistently placed in the Top 5 in collegiate leagues such as IvyLoL and Collegiate Star League. Some noteable players are Meruem (also known as cat8) and Npromsiri who both played for New World Eclipse in PAX 2013 Spring Promotion Qualifiers. Previous notable players were Crumbz, Yiruru, and Presidency.
Team Y (Spooky Scary Skeletons) was the newest team created in 2012 but they show great potential after losing to an unfortunate match up against UC Irvine in the first round of Collegiate Star League playoffs in a 2-1 series.
Team X (GF Aggro) was an Open Team that was created in January 2012 after the announcement of the IvyLoL two-league system.
Team W (Aaron's Tea Party) was an Open Team that split off from Team Z in August 2012, taking many of UBC eSport's veteran players who participated in the IvyLoL Beta Season.
