Marines Esports also known as GIGABYTE Marines for sponsorship reasons, is a Vietnamese professional gaming organization.


2014 Season[edit]

In May 2014, Tt Esport and Boba Net form Team Miracle, they competed in 2014 Vietnam Championship Series A Summer under the name Tt Miracle Boba. When the first round of Group Stage ended, they had 3 draws and 4 losses, stood at 8th place of 8 participants. Before the second round, the captain of Season 2 World Championship's participant Saigon Jokers, Junie joined the team and not only help them to avoid relegated but also nearly get the ticket to playoffs round.

2015 Season[edit]

After season 4, three well-known players of Vietnam, Archie, QTV and GoNy left Saigon Jokers to reunite with Junie and Navy at Team Miracle. That roster is known as Vietnam's dream team, and they decided to rename to Boba Marines with the ambition to overthrow Saigon Jokers and begin a new era. But they fail to qualify for 2015 GPL Spring and had to struggle at the beginning of 2015 Vietnam Championship Series A Spring, Navy was lacking teamwork and decided to leave. Marines had many trials with players and finished at 3rd place, qualifying for 2015 GPL Summer. At mid season, they had Optimus join from 2015 GPL Spring's winner Saigon Fantastic Five, then they won the VCSA Summer Split, but again failed to win GPL.

2016 Season[edit]

Except the minor tounament, 2016 King of SEA, Boba Marines had not gain any achievement in season 6. They finished 3rd place in 2016 Vietnam Championship Series A Spring, and 4th in 2016 Mountain Dew Championship Series Summer. From 2016, GPL also changed structure, allowing only the champions from SEA countries to play in the tournament, making the Marines unable to compete in another season of GPL.

2017 Spring[edit]

After a disappointing season, Boba Marines decided to release its entire roster except for Optimus and Archie. With new sponsors, GIGABYTE and Adonis Icyber Gaming, the team renamed to Marines Esports, and got good new players, especially All-Star Barcelona 2016 Jungler for GPL Team, Levi. They then won 2017 Mountain Dew Championship Series Spring and GPL 2017 Spring with no loss match, qualifying them for the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational. The Marines gained a lot of notoriety after their impressive run at the 2017 Mid-Season Invitational, after losing a really close best-of-5 series to Team SoloMid in the Play-In Stage and also upsetting teams like Team WE and G2 Esports (which ended up placing second in the tournament) in the Group Stage.

2017 Summer[edit]

They then won the 2017 Mountain Dew Championship Series Summer beating Young Generation 3-0, which gave them a seeded place the GPL/2017_Season/Summer going directly into the BO5 stage of the competition which they win in dominant fashion going undefeated.

At the 2017 Season World Championship the Marines were drawn into Group B with Longzhu Gaming, Immortals and Fnatic, who had lost a game to Young Generation in the Play-In stage. With a 2-4 record the Marines tied with Immortals and Fnatic, due to their faster game time they played the winner of the Immortals vs Fnatic tiebreaker, Fnatic beat the Marines to eliminate them from the tournament.

2018 Roster Instability[edit]

During the spring preseason Levi, Optimus and Nevan all left the team, although Nevan would rejoin during the Spring Season. Joining the team would be Zeros, KrissKyle, EasyLove (who would leave before the end of the split), Sena (who would leave after just two matches), Ciel and Petland. The Team would play a worldwide record 11 players in one split which would be tied in 2019 by Misfits Gaming.

In the Summer preseason KrissKyle, Ciel, Zeros and Sya would leave the team and Nevan would retire. Replacing them would be Blazes, Zin, Tear, Bara, Calm and Kiaya alongside Hope and Iris as analysis who would be joined during the Summer Season by a returning Ciel now as an analyst.

During the Summer Season Zin and Zeroday would leave on loans and Bara and Calm would leave permanently.

2018 Spring[edit]

Due to roster instability and losing key players the Marines couldn't repeat their 2017 performance placing 3rd in the VCS Spring Season and losing the Summer Playoffs in a 5 game series to EVOS Esports.

2018 Summer[edit]

The Marines rebranded from GIGABYTE Marines to GAM Esports.

Further widescale changes again caused the performance of GAM to get worse, finishing 5th in the VCS Summer Season and missing playoffs for the first time since 2014.

2019 Preseason[edit]

Again GAM Esports would make widescale changes in the coaching roles; Archie would become headcoach and Tinikun became general manager. However this change would not last until the VCS Spring Season with Tinikun returning to the head coach role. Hyena and Ciel would also leave their coaching roles.

The players who left were Petland, Noway and Tear. The players joining were Police and Yin along with Sya re-joining.

2019 Spring[edit]

During the VCS Spring Season, Yoshino and Milano would join, and Hope and Sya would leave.

Again roster instability and consistent changes would limit GAM Esports to 5th place with a 6-8 record.

2019 Mid-split Roster Changes[edit]

Archie would retire and Police, Milano, and Yin would all leave, Spot would also be suspended. Levi would rejoin as the highest payed player in the VCS. Zin, Slay and Zeros would also re-join the team. Zeros would be suspended for the first 3 weeks of the split. Cacon, Hieu3 and Minas would all join.

The coaching changes again changed Tinikun's headcoach role, he was replaced by Yuna (previously Safety), Arik also joined as Team manager.

2019 Summer[edit]

Despite the repeated preseason changes GAM Esports were able to maintain a stable roster allowing the teams 11-3 1st place finish in the VCS Summer Season.

GAM Esports would secure a place in the 2019 Season World Championship Main Event with an undefeated Playoffs victory against Lowkey Esports and Team Flash.
