2015 Season

Ever began their season playing in the Challengers Korea Spring 2015 Series 1 where they placed 5-8th after losing 0-2 to OverWM. Challengers Korea Spring 2015 Series 2 went even worse for them when they dropped out in the first round with a 0-2 loss to MKZ. Ever competed in Challengers Korea Summer 2015, finishing second overall with an 8-2 record. They beat Winners 3-0 in the first round of the Challengers Korea Summer 2015 Playoffs but lost 1-3 to Dark Wolves in the finals. Their top 2 placing guaranteed them a spot in the LCK 2016 Season Spring Promotion Tournament. They faced off against SBENU Sonicboom but lost 1-3 to them.

2016 Preseason

Prior to the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup, Ever brought in former KT Rolster jungler Ares (additionally, support TML renamed to Key). With the new team, they upset Samsung Galaxy and Rebels Anarchy in the first two rounds. Expected to fall 0-2 to recent World Champions SK Telecom, who tried out substitute Scout onstage for the first time in game 1, Ever shocked audiences by not only winning that first game but sweeping the team 2-0, even with Faker playing the second game. Against CJ Entus in the finals, Ever once again swept the series, this time 3-0, and qualified for IEM Cologne as Korea's only seed to the event. Recognized for his strong Bard play, Key was named the tournament's MVP. Ever continued their strong performance at IEM, defeating H2k 2-1 and then Qiao Gu 3-2 to win the tournament. Their victory marked the first time since the inception of the League Championship Series in 2013 that a team unable to qualify for their domestic premier league won a major international event.

In late December 2015, Athena accepted an offer to join Edward Gaming, stopping their KeSPA Cup and IEM Cologne lineup from playing at another event. He was eventually replaced by Tempt.

2016 Season

During the preseason, allegations had arisen that support Key had engaged in Elo boosting activities. The allegations were never proven, and no official action was taken against him, but Ever took their own disciplinary action and sat him out for the first 12 games of Challengers. Totoro started for the team in his place. With Totoro, Ever went 9-3.

At the time of competing at IEM Katowice (which they had an invitation to due to winning IEM Cologne), Ever were in second place in Challengers, after losing a series 0-2 to MVP. Despite a round-one surprise upset win over Team SoloMid, Ever lost to Royal Never Give Up and then a rematch series against TSM to be eliminated before the playoff bracket. Following IEM Katowice, however, the team continued to perform well in the Korean Challenger circuit, eventually defeating MVP to finish first place before defeating SBENU Sonicboom 3-0 in the promotion tournament to earn their place in the LCK.

During the 2016 LCK Summer Season, ESC Ever went 5-13 in total sets, with one notable upset victory over SK Telecom T1. However, they still finished the split in ninth place, leading them to participate in the 2017 LCK Spring Promotion tournament. In the first round, they beat SBENU Korea 2-1 before falling to Kongdoo Monster 3-1. In the deciding loser's match, ESC Ever swept CJ Entus to earn their spot back in the LCK.
