FlyQuest began its journey in 2017 with the organization’s acquisition of the Cloud9 Challenger roster. Former Cloud9 Tempest players An “Balls” Van Le, Hai “Hai” Du Lam, Johnny “Altec” Ru, and Daerek "LemonNation" Hart joined Team Liquid Academy alum Galen “Moon” Holgate to make up FlyQuest’s first roster going into the 2017 LCS Spring Split.
Full of less-than-promising players, the League of Legends community didn’t have high expectations for FlyQuest. This made its 6-2 record in the first four weeks of the season a big surprise, especially since it seemed to enjoy off-meta picks like Evelynn in the jungle. This strategy would soon catch up with them as FlyQuest hit the skids in the next four weeks. A 1-7 record had them fighting off Team Envy and Team Liquid for the 5th seed playoffs spot.
FlyQuest were the underdogs once again, but continued to thrive in that role with a reverse sweep of Counter Logic Gaming in the quarterfinals. The team’s luck ran out in the semifinals when it was swept by Team SoloMid. This was a disappointing first season for the new team and it made some changes before the Summer Split began.
Despite adding Jason “WildTurtle” Tran to its roster, FlyQuest stumbled once again. The 2017 Summer Split saw the organization finish in seventh place. The 30 championship points from the previous split saw FlyQuest play in the 2017 Regional Finals, where it swept Team Dignitas. Unfortunately, Counter Logic Gaming got revenge for its loss in the Spring Split and denied FlyQuest a spot in Worlds.
After a disappointing first run, not many League of Legends fans expected FlyQuest to play in the 2018 LCS Spring Split. Once again, the doubters were proven wrong and FlyQuest was awarded one of the permanent slots in the new franchise-based league. With something to prove, FlyQuest dropped its entire roster except for newcomer WildTurtle. It even hired a new coach, SK Telecom T1’s Jung “RapidStar” Min-Sung.
FlyQuest saw mixed results. Despite a promising first half of the season, it ended up finishing 8th place. While this wasn’t the change the organization had hoped to see, there was a satisfying win along the way over former parent organization Cloud9. That prompted more changes, with veteran jungler Lucas "Santorin" Tao Kilmer Larsen being added for the Summer Split.
After a shaky first half of the season, FlyQuest demoted new support Kevin “Kwon” Kwon to its academy team and finished 10-8, which was enough to enter into a three-way tie for third place. After losing to 100 Thieves and TSM in the tiebreaker matches, FlyQuest dropped to 6th place and ultimately missed Worlds once again.
FlyQuest added Omran “V1per” Shoura and its biggest name to date, three-time LCS champion Eugene “Pobelter” Park. Despite the star power, expectations remained low. A strong start to the season saw FlyQuest remain in the top six in the Spring Split and earn a spot in the playoffs. The team fell in the semifinals to Team Liquid.
While this was an improvement, FlyQuest still had its sights on something more. FlyQuest made more roster changes, but kept Juan "JayJ" Guibert for the first few weeks of the Summer Split. That changed after an ugly 1-5 start. In the end, FlyQuest finished in ninth place with a 5-13 record. The Spring Split performance was enough to send FlyQuest into the Regional Finals, but the team’s season ended with a loss to Clutch Gaming.
