Legacy Genesis was formed to compete in the Oceanic Challenger Series in an attempt to qualify for the OPL in 2016. In the OPL 2016 Split 1 Promotion Tournament, they defeated Sudden Fear 3-0 and successfully qualified for the split. Due to the one-team-per-organization rule, Legacy was forced to sell the roster, and so in October the team became Trident Esports.
In Split 1 of 2016, Legacy eSports acquired the organisation and roster of Imperium/KKC as its new Legacy Genesis roster, and allowed them to compete in the OCS after the sale of their former team. Legacy retains the OCS place going forward.
