** '''Team Impulse''' : Formerly LMQ, it was a Chinese team that transferred to NA. With some of the Chinese members going back to the LPL, it has become a multi-national team. Unfortunately, after 2016 Spring Split, a Riot investigation and the players on the team at the time had revealed that team's owner flew back to China before the Spring Split, and cut off most communication, effectively abandoning the team. Furthermore, there was a complete failure to pay players and coaches what they were owed and in a timely fashion. Riot also found that despite the team's management claiming they had the players required contracts properly signed by them, that most were not signed, and that despite a grace period to get the paper work in order, they still failed to do so. In response, and partly due to a previous pay incident from 2015 with TIP, Riot fined the team's management $20,000, and forced the sale of the team's spot due to the failure at maintaining the players' welfare. The team's LCS spot was sold to Team [=Phoenix1=].

*** '''Mid: Xiaoweixiao''' Yu "Xiaoweixiao" Xian''' : Memetically cute, he is considered one of the best mid laners in NA. He is a master of Yasuo, and farms very well in all of his games. In July of 2015 however, he was found to have participated in an elo-boosting service[[note]]Offering to play other players accounts to falsely improve their in-game ranking, which negatively affects team balance[[/note]], and the attempted sale of one of his LCS-Unlocked accounts with all champions and their alternative skins that are given by Riot to pro-players. Both actions were grounds for termination of those accounts (which they were), and led to a 7 month ban from competitive play. After his contract expired with TIP and his competitive ban ended, XWX moved to China to play with the LPL team Oh My Dream (OMD) in March 2016..
