Origen was founded by a retired League of Legends pro and the winner of the first World Championship Enrique "xPeke" Martínez in 2014. It’s a European team now working under RFRSH Entertainment.
When xPeke left Fnatic in 2014 to build his own team, he was joined by Maurice "Amazing" Stückenschneider, Alfonso “Mithy” Rodríguez, Jesper “Niels” Svenningsen (now “Zven”), and Paul "sOAZ" Boyer. The five players established the team in Spain, and worked their way from European Challenger Series 2015 Spring Qualifier to a slot in European LoL Championship Series 2015 Summer.
Though a new team in the scene, the competition wasn’t anything new to Origen’s roster, and its skill showed with great performances through the split. Origen was safely in second place behind Fnatic. With a win at EU Regional Finals 2015, the team secured a qualification for Worlds 2015.
At the 2015 World Championship, Origen made it out of groups with a 4-2 record. It was then swept by the champion SK Telecom T1 (now T1) in the semifinals. Making the playoffs at its first international championship was a great achievement for the team.
Heading to 2016, Origen signed Tristan "PowerOfEvil" Schrage to share the mid lane role with xPeke, who was at the time thinking of retirement. Keeping the new member on the starting position during the whole of their schedule, Origen earned its first international title at IEM Season X San Jose after sweeping Counter Logic Gaming in the finals. This earned the team a slot at IEM Season 10 World Championship, where it was quickly eliminated.
The season then went downhill for Origen. In the EU LCS 2016 Summer Split, xPeke had to step in as a bot laner after FORG1VEN, who had just joined the team, had to leave. This saw Origin not only miss the playoffs, but also face relegation. Thankfully, the team didn’t struggle to qualify for the upcoming season in the EU LCS 2017 Spring Promotion.
After such a disappointing finish, all players excluding xPeke, left the team. Origen then signed a team that overall lacked experience, which resulted in a down start to the EU LCS 2017 Spring Split. With a new jungler and with xPeke stepping in as support towards the end of the split, there were some improvements, but the team struggled overall.
Once again, a bad run resulted in the entire roster leaving Origen. The new signings didn’t help it to do better the following summer.
RFRSH Entertainment acquired Origen ahead of the 2019 season and earned a slot as one of the 10 franchised partners for the rebranded LoL European Championship. The organization signed an experienced roster, including Erlend “Nukeduck” Holm and Alfonso "Mithy" Rodrígue.
The new roster struggled to find synergy at the beginning of the season, but consistent progress pushed to second place in the LEC 2019 Spring Split with a 12-6 record. Unfortunately, Origen couldn’t translate this performance to the summer split and the team finished the regular season eighth. At the LEC 2019 Regional Finals, Origen’s chance to earn a qualification to Worlds 2019 was dashed with a loss to Splyce in the first round.
Heading into 2020, Origen assembled yet another new roster.
