The Team That Never Was.

The Team That Never Was. Esports can have some strange twists and turns, but it is often what you don’t do that can speak the loudest. Many months ago we looked into the hype that was in the Battle Royale scene, and conducted our initial investigations. This saw us attend events and make discrete enquiries, and generally get to know people in the PUBG and Fortnite scenes. During our investigation we came to know the x2Twins, MrFreshAsian and Hershicals, and over the space of a few weeks, reached an agreement and entered into a contract to have them as the Legacy Fortnite team, with an exciting schedule of development and promotion in place. A video was edited, press releases written, induction and onboarding of the players was well underway. Then literally 3 hours before our big reveal, the players and their Team Manager, Sozo, came to us. An international organisation…

OPL Split Two vs. Chiefs – Recap

Legacy’s road to the gauntlet is on a knifes edge this week, after a 2-0 loss at the hands of the Chiefs in the Oceanic Pro League’s very own El-Classico. In game one, Legacy locked in a 1-3-1 composition, featuring two strong solo lanes with Mimic on Camille and Claire on Ryze. During the early game, both teams went blow for blow and a duel between Claire and Ryoma at three minutes ended with both mid-laners dead. However, the Chiefs were able to apply pressure across the entire map and began to pull away due to some unsuccessful plays by Legacy. The game was still salvageable at 20 minutes, but an attempt to catch out the Chiefs in the jungle was turned around and top laner Swip3rR landed a massive equalizer ultimate to swing the fight. With the momentum now firmly in hand, the Chiefs took baron and broke Legacy’s…

OCS roster change

Legacy’s Oceanic Challenger Series League of Legends squad is farewelling support player Andrew ‘Biwac’ Licata for behavioural issues in solo queue.

You can watch Legacy Genesis’s game on twitch.tv/OPL at 7pm AEST on Thursday, August 9.

OPL Split Two vs. Bombers – Recap

With our season on the brink, Legacy has dug deep and knocked off the Bombers in the second clash of the AFL OPL teams in Split Two. Coming off a rough week against Order, Legacy picked an aggressive composition in game one, with Gangplank for Mimic, Kindred for Only, and Claire locking in the first Viktor of Split Two. In what very quickly became a one sided stomp, Legacy over ran the Bombers with superior macro and team fighting, in part thanks to some fantastic engages by Decoy’s Rakan. Legacy’s slow methodical pace stretched the Bombers to breaking point, and they managed just two kills in the dying seconds as we took game one. Game two saw the Bombers fight back with a strong performance from all their players, in particular, top laner Sleeping ran a riot on Irellia (6/3/6). In game three, Claire picked Zoe, and if you watched…

OPL Split Two vs. Order – Recap

It was a rough day at the office for the League of Legends team in week seven of the OPL, as Order’s squad hit back at Legacy with a vengeance. In game one, Only locked in his Pocket pick, Nidalee, and sparks flew in the opening minutes as he turned around a 1v2 by Spookz and Swiffer to secure first blood. Despite a relatively even early game, it all went horribly wrong at 20 minutes. After falling out of position to secure a kill on Swiffer, Order pounced on the overextended Legacy line-up and took three kills and baron. With a team composition centred on picks and poke damage, Legacy suddenly found themselves on the back foot against Orders traditional team fight comp. With no real way of contesting Order’s push, Legacy was unable to overcome the now accelerated Order and fell in just over 28 minutes. Only again picked…
