Ghosts

Rise came into existence when the team was created to compete in the 2014 Call of Duty Championship. At this time their roster consisted of FEARS, Pacman, and Whea7s, Loony. During the online regional qualifiers they were named “Livin’ the Dream” but they changed this name to their current name Rise for the US Regional Finals where they successfully qualified for the 2014 Call of Duty Championship.

At Call of Duty Championship 2014, the team would be placed in Group F with Vitality.Rises, Wizards e-Sports Club and Brazil 5 Stars. They made easy work of these three international teams by winning all three series with a map count of 9-2. In WBR1, Rise took down VexX Revenge 3-1 before losing to Trident T1 Dotters in game 5 round 10. In the Loser's Bracket, Rise would defeat TCM-Gaming 3-2 but ultimately fall to Strictly Business 3-1 in LBR3 to be eliminated from the tournament. They took home a 7th Place finish and $35,000.

After Champs, FEARS left the roster and was replaced by Saint. This only lasted for MLG Championship Anaheim: Open Bracket where they placed second and qualifed for a spot in MLG CoD League Season 3 Regular Season. Saint was replaced by Attach for the rest of Ghosts.

Despite a weak 13-16th Place finish at UMG Dallas 2014, the team stayed together and managed a 2nd Place finish in MLG CoD League Season 3 Regular Season. The team rounded out the year with a 4th and a 7-8th Place finish at UMG Nashville 2014 and MLG CoD League Season 3 Playoffs respectively. Attach and Loony were then released before Advanced Warfare.

Advanced Warfare

Going into the first event, MLG Columbus 2014, Rise picked up Chino and Diabolic. Chino will remain on the team for the rest of the year but he will end up playing with twelve other players total in Advanced Warfare. Two 17-20th finishes resulted in Whea7s moving to Substitute for Sender. A 7-8th Place finish at MLG Pro League Season 1 Playoffs and Whea7s was traded to Automatic Reload for Miyagi who would only be on the team for event where Rise failed to qualify for Call of Duty Championship 2015. The team only managed two top five finishes for the rest of the year including 2nd Place at MES Detroit 25k, which was a small tournament which most major teams didn't attend. Rise would drop all four remaining players after they finished 13-16th at MLG World Finals 2015.

Black Ops III

With less than two weeks remaining before the release of Black Ops III, Rise Nation picked up Slacked, Classic, and rising star Octane. Loony also rejoined the team as captain. At Totino's Invitational 2015, Rise Nation would finally do somethings they've been trying to do for nearly two years - win an event. The team defeated both Luminosity Gaming and Team Kaliber 2-1 to set up the first meeting of the year's top two teams. OpTic Gaming had just come off of a dominating win at MLG World Finals and were looking to continue that trend but Rise had other plans. In game 5 round 11, Slacked held down the B Bomb site with two Annihilator kills and dethroned Optic. This marked the first time a team not name OpTic Gaming or FaZe Clan won a major event since 2014.

Following the win, Rise Nation was invited to the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Pro Division Qualifying Invitational Tournament where they defeated 3sUP and Team eLevate to claim their spot in 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Regular Season. Two months later at the first LAN since Totino's, Rise would solidify themselves as a top team as they defeated Luminosity Gaming 4-1 in the UMG South Carolina 2016 Champion Tournament Finals. Over the next four weeks, Rise would finish 2nd Place in two of the four online CWL Challenger Division tournaments. Rise was one of three North American teams invited to ESWC 2016.

In the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Regular Season, Rise Nation would finish 2nd Place with a 16-6 record. In the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Playoffs Finals, Rise would once again face up against OpTic Gaming. But this time, OpTic would get the best of Rise and take home the championship.

Infinite Warfare

The end of Black ops 3 would bring a change to the roster of Rise. Slacked, Classic, and Octane would be picked up by Luminosity Gaming. This left Loony without a team going into the newly-released Infinite Warfare. However, Elevate would announce that the company would be switching the team from a North American roster to that of European roster. This change would bring Elevate's Aqua, Felony, and Faccento to Rise Nation for the 2016 - 2017 CWL Season.

The first test would be the PSX invitational Tournament 2017. Teams that they would face include Faze Clan, the new roster of Luminosity Gaming, the all star squad of Orbit Esports and the EU Roster of Elevate. Despite a short amount of time for team chemistry and a new game, Rise would take home a 3rd/4th Place. With a high hopes of continuing their dominance from Black ops 3, Rise would go hard for the first major LAN event in IW. MLG Las Vagas would see Rise finding their footing in IW. They would place first, beating the likes of Splyce, Faze, and Cloud 9. Brice "Feccento" would be named the MVP of the event. 10000 Pro Points would put them ahead of their competition.

2017 would bring hardships to the boys of Rise Nation. The changing meta and other teams becoming stringing would hinder Rises performance at MLG Atlantas.
