HistoryEdit

FoundingEdit

Beyond Gaming's inaugural roster did not include any players from ahq's final starting roster. However, Beyond Gaming signed ahq's substitute bot laner, Chiu "Doggo" Tzu-chuan, on 4 February 2021. The team also acquired top laner Hsieh "PK" Yu-ting from Machi Esports and signed several rookies. Mid laner Chien "Maoan" Mao-an joined from Berjaya Dragons on 3 March to round out the seven-man roster.

2021 seasonEdit

Beyond Gaming finished second in the spring regular season, receiving a bye to the second round of playoffs in the winners' bracket. There, Beyond Gaming defeated Machi Esports 3–1 and advanced to the semifinals match in the winners' bracket, against PSG Talon. After being swept by PSG Talon, Beyond Gaming faced off against Machi Esports once again, this time in the losers' bracket semifinals. Beyond Gaming won their rematch against Machi Esports after a close series, and advanced to their first PCS finals. Beyond Gaming was swept by PSG Talon again in the finals, and finished second overall in their inaugural split.[5]
