Acquiring Elements LCS spot, S04 joined the EU summer split in May of 2016. Being one of the first European football organizations to join the EU LCS, S04 hoped to use its wealth of resources to create their first successful LoL roster. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned, and S04 ended up finishing the summer split in eighth place. In the promotion tournament, S04 lost to Misfits, resulting in the team being demoted to the challenger series.
Heading into 2017, S04 looks to make their way back into the EU LCS. Securing world championship semifinalist VandeR, as well as former Misfits midlaner Selfie, S04 looks to make a splash in the 2017 competitive season.
