MeetYourMakers (MYM) is an amateur gaming organization based in Leipzig, Germany. It was founded in March 2001 by Mark Peter "Mercy" Fries, primarily as a Counter-Strike team.[1] However, MeetYourMakers disbanded in 2009 but was re-founded later that year.[2][3]

History[edit]

The original MYM was known for having very talented DotA players: when the organization dissolved in 2004, MeetYourMakers had a prize team for Defense of the Ancients.

In August 2009, it was announced that MeetYourMakers had created a new team of staff and would be returning to the electronic sports scene with new teams.[4] On October 4, a new DotA team was revealed.[5][6][7]

In August 2011, with the conclusion of The International 2011, MYM's Dota 2 team dissolved and the players went their separate ways.[8]

In September 2011, MYM announced their new roster, which included players from Scythe-Gaming, as well as Malaysian superstar YamateH.[9] However, YamateH left the team without playing a single game. The roster also had other problems, with xy-, Chawy, Roy and iceiceice having national service commitments. This left Hyhy alone playing with stand-ins for multiple tournaments. Due to internal problems in MUFC eSports, four of their players joined MYM to form a brand new roster, but only a few months later, they returned to MUFC following mediocre results in The Premier League.

In October 2012, MYM came back to Dota 2 by picking up European squad The Tough Bananas.[10]

In November 2012, MYM merged with French team Shiba Gaming to create a new roster. The new squad separated from the organization later that month.

In February 2014, MYM returned to Dota 2 by picking up European squad Team Life (with Unicorn, Cr1t-, Ace, Mini, and Exist).[11]

In March 2014, Mini and Exist left the team. They were replaced by Link and Ryze.[12]

In July 2014, Unicorn and Cr1t- left the team, while 13abyKnight joined.[13]

In September 2014, MYM releases their Dota 2 squad.[14]

Editorial[edit]

While MYM describes the players and teams, myMYM.com describes the website which focuses on eSports coverage, tournaments, content and community for certain games such as Counter-Strike, Warcraft 3, FIFA, DotA and League of Legends. Editors and staff have been sent around the globe to cover events ranging from USA to China.

During its peak myMYM was known as one of the most important content pages for Warcraft 3, Starcraft, and DotA related news, articles and video productions.

Later on myMYM got nominated two times in a row for the eSports Award in 2007 and 2008 which was given away by the ESL. Next to that Warcraft 3 editor Frank 'Mirhi' Fields got nominated two times in a row for best eSports Journalist in 2008 and 2009 while Marcus 'Wind' Ho was nominated in 2007. Jonas 'The1Crow' Gebhardt was nominated in 2009 for eSports Photo of the year and subsequently won the award.
