eStar is a professional team
When building their roster, eStar sought out players that would work well together. Furthermore, they wanted those who shared the team’s values of team success over individual glory as well as having a calm level-headed approach – an approach which has paid dividends as they progress upward in LPL rankings.
In an arena known for intense team fighting, eStar’s players stand out with their gentle approach – reflecting their team mascot’s symbolism of peace with its crane mascot representing tranquillity.
Though eStar is relatively new to the LPL, its performance has surprised many observers. They currently share fourth place with FunPlus Phoenix and have won three out of their four matches so far in this split. Owned by ESV5, which recently completed an equity swap merger with Ninjas in Pyjamas out of Sweden; with this newly formed entity now owning teams across various games as well as streaming platform Douyu.
eStar is a franchise
eStar Gaming has made waves in mobile esports since being founded. They were the first team ever to win over $1 Million in Honor of Kings prize money and competed at notable event circuits such as World Champion Cup.
When creating their roster, eStar was looking for players not only with impressive skills but who also understood their philosophy – such as using a patient playstyle without taking unnecessary risks for extra kills. Their mascot, the crane, is an ancient symbol of longevity and harmony that was chosen as their team emblem.
eStar was established by former Warcraft 3 pro player xiaOt and originally played Heroes before transitioning into League of Legends in 2019. Since then, they have won various events and currently sit fourth in KIC 2023 standings – two matches behind Royal Never Give Up (RNGU). ESV5 E-Sports Group boasts more than 100 professional players competing across 10 separate competitions – making eStar an integral member.
