Following The International 2015, a number of North American teams disbanded, flooding the market with proven free agents. Dota Cinema creator Shannon "SUNSfan" Scotten saw an opportunity and looked to fill it with his own organization, Digital Chaos.
The inaugural team had a number of popular players including former Evil Geniuses support Kurtis "Aui_2000" Ling and Team Liquid offlaner "BuLba" Sosale, but failed to impress in its early efforts. This was followed by an explosion of drama which surfaced when Team Secret player Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao revealed that a number of North American teams were colluding against them by sharing scrim information.
Middling results continued, but the team made a splashy free agent signing in February with the signing of Team Empire carry Roman "Resolut1on" Fominok. This did little to turn around the team’s fortunes, which led to a mass exodus from the side in March. Only Resolut1on remained with the team.
Digital Chaos quickly rebuilt by adding former Team Secret players Aliwi “w33” Omar and Rasmus "MISERY" Filipsen, journeyman David "Moo" Hull, and pub star Martin "Saksa" Sazdov.
The team went on an upswing with this new roster, qualifying for the 2016 Manila Major and then The International 2016. Despite being a massive underdog heading into TI6, the team posted a stunning run to the grand finals.
The team stayed largely intact and remained strong over the coming months, placing top four at the Boston Major and winning ESL One Genting 2017. Things suddenly took a turn the following April when SUNSfan suddenly departed the organization and its Dota 2 roster left.
Digital Chaos missed no time, signing the BuLba-led Team Onyx as its new roster. The team posted mixed results, but managed to qualify for The International 2017. The team was eliminated in the early goings of the event, which led to roster changes and its eventual disbandment.
2018 was a lost year for the organization. It signed the Aui_2000 and David "MoonMeander" Tan-led Animal Planet squad in March, but saw the team leave just a month later.
Digital Chaos stayed out of Dota 2 for the remainder of 2018, focusing on its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad and rebranding as Chaos Esports Club during that time. It returned to Dota 2 in early 2019 by signing the Brazilian paiN Gaming team.
The South American team regularly qualified for majors, but rarely placed higher than last. Chaos eventually released the team and formed a new European roster for the qualifiers to The International 2019. The team made the cut, but finished in last place.
Chaos released its entire Dota 2 roster in the weeks following TI9, but came back much quicker than it did previously. Chaos signed the roster of Quincy Crew following its qualification for the DOTA Summit 11 Minor.
