Established in 2000, against All authority (abbreviated as aAa) is one of the oldest eSports organizations in France. In September 2010, the organization announced the creation of a League of Legends team. The team enjoyed success early in 2011, including second place at the Riot Season 1 Championship, but the roster of players left to join Millenium soon after. Although by November 2012 four out of five of the second place IEM Season V - LoL Invitational and Season 1 Championship players returned, the team never earned the same degree of success. After disbanding once more, with an again newly formed roster, aAa qualified for the Season 3 Spring Split of the League Championship Series and finished in sixth place.
