FROM DIABLO III TO HEARTHSTONE
GamersOrigin started out in 2011 as a website dedicated to Diablo III. At Hearthstone ’s launch, GamersOrigin started covering the Blizzard card game and recruited in early 2014 its first professional players including Un33d, Fishou and Lowelo.
GamersOrigin also develops its content through YouTube and Twitch with HearthstoneFR, the first 24/7 Hearthstone French channel. In September 2017 GamersOrigin replaced it with O’RiginHS, in co-production with O’Gaming.
GamersOrigin organized GamersOrigin Cups 1 and 2 at Ecole 42. The events gathered more than 500 players, from true beginners to world-class challengers. GOCUP#2 is still one of the global tournament with the highest number of attendees.
THE HEARTHSTONE ADVENTURE
In September 2015, the Hearthstone roster took a whole new dimension with the recruitment of the coach behind Firebat’s 2014 World Champion title: Ryan “Purple” Murphy-Root.
Only a few weeks after settling-in, Purple won DreamHack Winter and became the new Hearthstone Americas champion. He reclaimed the title in 2017, and will take part in his second World Championship in Amsterdam, in January 2018.
AN OVERWATCH EPISODE
Overwatch’s launch was an opportunity to explore a new horizon and to truly claim the name of esports club by launching a second team on a new game. The journey began in June 2016 and concluded more than a year later, after reaching the top of the French scene and achieving a #5 ranking in Europe.
THE RENEWAL : LEAGUE OF LEGENDS
GamersOrigin made a bet in January 2017 by venturing into the League of Legends’ French scene, its first steps out of Blizzard turf.
Our first season on League was a complete success: 8 titles and 12 podiums lead to the uncontested honorific title of “best French team of the year”. Those results pushed us to establish our very first gaming house, an essential part of the path to the top. It helped the team improve both individually and collectively.
FOLLOWING UP WITH PUBG…
Capitalizing on its success, GamersOrigin recruited a PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds roster showing a lot of potential in November 2017. Our recruits demonstrated their skills only a few days later by qualifying for the PUBG Online Showdown.
GamersOrigin esports club will continue to expand in the coming months and years, keeping the core values we held since the beginning in our sights: being humble and always pushing our limits.
