Unicorns of Love is a professional League of Legends team based in Europe. They are participating in the EU LCS.

History[edit]

The Unicorns of Love became infamous for their unique, aggressive playstyle, unconventional picks, and even item builds. Their style was jokingly labeled as "chaos style".

2014[edit]

In their first year as a team the Unicorns had a pretty decent run at the EU CS, ending third place in Summer after losing 2-1 to H2k-Gaming (who eventually went on to win the playoffs) in the semifinals and beating Ninjas in Pyjamas 3-0 in the 3rd place match. That third place ending meant a spot in the Spring Promotion, where they got promoted to the LCS after beating Millenium 3-2 in their corresponding match.

2015[edit]

After being voted by the fans, the Unicorns got invited to IEM Season IX - San Jose, with top teams like the EU LCS champions Alliance, Team SoloMid and Cloud9. Expectations were uncertain as it was their first LAN with their new jungler Kikis.

In the first round they convincingly beat the Latin America North champions Lyon Gaming, which had Team8's botlane as stand-ins, securing top 4 and having to face the North American champions Team SoloMid in the next round.

After the Semifinals, their popularity skyrocketed, as they managed to beat the NA LCS greatest with an unconventional jungle Twisted Fate pick, ever aggression from their new jungler and a phenomenal performance by rookie PowerOfEvil who manhandled TSM's superstar Bjergsen in the midlane.

At the Grand Finals, things didn't go so well, as the NA LCS Runners-up Cloud9 overwhelmed the Unicorns completely dismantling them 3-0.

Back in Europe, the team had a good EU LCS Regular Season, ending up at fifth place with a 9-9 record, reaching the playoffs stage in their first year on the league.

Things started out really well in the playoffs, putting a statement by beating Gambit Gaming 3-1 in the quarterfinals, and advancing to the next stage where the split MVP FORG1VENGRE and star jungler Svenskeren's team SK Gaming was awaiting after ending at first place in the Regular Season and earning a bye to the Semifinals.

A lost and uncoordinated SK showed up that series and the Unicorns clinched the victory 3-2, securing their ticket to the Grand Finals, being the second team (after Cloud9) that managed to get to the Grand Finals of the LCS the same split they got promoted.

It's Grand Finals, they had to face an in-form Fnatic, a team also 'plagued' with young talent, but with the advantage of an experienced leader in YellOwStaR and a great coaching staff led by Deilor.

At the end of the day Fnatic were the superior team, taming the Unicorns in a hard fought series 3-2, crowning themselves as the 2015 EU LCS Spring champions and securing a spot in the first ever Mid Season Invitational.
