History

In December 2011, Team Empire switched their HoN team to Dota 2. After the initial disappointing performances, blowyourbrain joined from DTS Gaming, but the team continued to underperform. With the disbandment of DTS Gaming as half of their players joined Darer Entertainment, ALWAYSWANNAFLY and Jackal joined Team Empire, which finally improved the team's performance. Team Empire participated in the offline finals of SLTV StarSeries Season Two, claiming 5th place.

In September 2012, after the dissolution of the Darer Entertainment and Moscow Five Dota 2 teams, Goblak and Funn1k from Darer Entertainment and Silent from Moscow Five joined the team, replacing ALWAYSWANNAFLY, Jackal, and j4.

In February 2013, Funn1k departed from the team to join Natus Vincere.[1] In March 2013, Vigoss was recruited as the new fifth player.[2]

In April 2013, Goblak and Silent left the team.[3] Later that month, Empire added twiSta, Mitch, and LighTofHeaveN, and Vigoss was asked to step down from the main squad.[4][5] After failing to qualify for The International 2013, twiSta and Mitch left the team.

In August 2013, the team lost LighTofHeaveN to Virtus Pro, but recruited Silent from Quantic Gaming and VANSKOR from RoX.KIS.[6][7][8]

In September 2013, blowyourbrain left the team.[9] Later that month, Empire announced Mag and ALWAYSWANNAFLY as their fourth and fifth players.[10][11]

In November 2013, Scandal left the team, and Resolut1on took his place.[12]
