'''Titan''' is a Singaporean organization founded in August 2013. In late 2014 they picked up the European SMITE team [[Aquila]]. Next to the SMITE squad, the team also houses a successful Counter-Strike: Global Offensive lineup.
+
=== Season 1 ===
 +
 
 +
The European upstarts [[Aquila]], known for their come from behind victories, were acquired by the eSports organization Titan on December 12th,<ref name="aquilajoin">[http://titan.pro/news/read/Titan-Ventures-Into-Smite/22 Titan Ventures Into Smite]</ref> less than a month before they were slated to play at the [[SMITE World Championship 2015|SMITE World Championship]].
 +
 
 +
Beginning January 9th, 2015, Titan competed in the first [[SMITE World Championship 2015|SMITE World Championship]]. After a victory over the Chinese 1st seeded [[Oh My God|OMG]], Titan was knocked into the loser's bracket by the American 2nd seeded [[COGnitive Gaming|COGnitive Prime]]. Entering the knockout stage, Titan defeated the Brazilian champions [[We Love Bacon]] 2-0. The semifinals saw Titan paired against their European counterparts, the 1st seeded [[SK Gaming]]. In a repeat of the Regional Championships Finals, Titan took the series 2-0, advancing to the finals to square off against COGnitive Prime again. The first two games of the best of five quickly went the Americans' way, and they looked to have it under control. However, in typical Titan fashion, they came from behind to tie the series at 2-2. After a series of bans by COGnitive leveled heavily at Titan's Support player [[KanyeLife]], COGnitive won a 24-minute game to claim the title of World Champions, giving Titan the second place finish.
 +
 
 +
=== Season 2 ===
 +
 
 +
==== Spring Split ====
 +
 
 +
Titan was met with middling performance throughout the Spring Split, losing to both the newly formed [[TRIG eSports]] and the newly reformed [[Fnatic]]. Both teams would beat out Titan in the final standings, qualifying for the [[SMITE Pro League/Season 2/Spring Multi-Region LAN|Spring Finals]] and leaving Titan behind in 3rd place. Just before the start of the Summer Split, former Hunter [[Ataraxia]] would switch roles with Solo Laner [[Confrey]]. The team stated a need for revitalization as the motivation behind the swap.
 +
 
 +
==== Summer Split ====
 +
 
 +
The role swaps did well for Titan, energizing the team to a solid Summer Split performance. They finished 1st in the split with an 11-3 record, dropping two games to [[Paradigm]] (then still [[TRIG eSports|TRIG]]) and a single game to Fnatic. Mid Laner [[PrettyPriMe]] and Support [[KanyeLife]] earned spots on the EU MVP team, and Titan qualified to compete in the [[SMITE Pro League/Season 2/Summer Finals|Summer Finals]].
 +
 
 +
As the first European seed, Titan earned a Quarterfinals bye at the [[SPL Season 2 Summer Finals|Summer Finals]]. In the semifinals, Titan faced off against the EU third seed [[Paradigm]], fresh off a convincing victory over [[Cloud 9]]. They won Game 1 easily, snowballing an early first blood into a quick victory. However, [[Paradigm]] would dominate the rest of the series, winning three consecutive games to knock Titan down to the third place match. Once there, Titan encountered their first seed counterparts from the American side, [[AFK Gaming]]. They would once again struggle, however, failing to lock down a single major objective in a 2-0 stomp from AFK. Titan would finish the Summer Finals in 4th place.
 +
 
 +
==== Fall Split ====
 +
Early in the fall split, it was announced that long time coach, [[CaptCoach]], would move leave the team to coach [[Avant-Garde]] from Oceania.<ref name="captcoachleaves" /> Titan showed some inconsistency during the first half of the split, and it would lead to some changes in the roster. During week six, coach, [[Omgimabird]] filled in for [[Confrey]] in the hunter role. During that week the team went 1-3 and many had questions as to what would happen to hunter player Confrey. Just days later, the team announced that Confrey would be leaving the team and former coach of [[Team Instinct]], [[BroTuZ]], would be the new solo laner. With this acquisition, captain [[Ataraxia]] moved back into his original roles as Hunter.<ref name="brotuzjoins">[http://titan.pro/news/read/Titan-SMITE-Roster-Changes/50 Brotuz joins. Confrey leaves.]</ref>

=== Pre-Season 3 ===
<!-- In depth information about the history of the team should be placed here. Keep the text here in full sentences and in paragraph form. -->

On January 12th, 2016 the organization announced that their roster would part ways and that the organization would withdraw from SMITE.<ref name="titansmite">[http://titan.pro/news/read/SMITE-Adventure-Ends/57 SMITE Adventure Ends]</ref> Only one day later Titan announced they would cease all operations.<ref name="titanfarewell" />
Having placed first at the [[SPL Season 1 EU Regionals]], the European '''Aquila''' roster was the team that surprised everyone. Titan acquired the lineup in December,<ref name="aquilajoin">[http://titan.pro/news/read/Titan-Ventures-Into-Smite/22 Titan Ventures Into Smite]</ref> shortly thereafter the team placed second at the [[SMITE World Championship 2015]].
 
  
After finishing in 3rd place during the [[SMITE Pro League/Season 2/Europe/Spring Season|EU SPL Spring Split]] and failing to qualify for the [[SMITE Pro League/Season 2/Spring Multi-Region LAN|Spring Finals]], [[Ataraxia]] and [[Confrey]] decided to swap roles heading into the [[SMITE Pro League/Season 2/Europe/Summer Season|Summer Split]].

Titan was a Singaporean organization founded in August 2013. In late 2014 they picked up the European SMITE team Aquila. Next to the SMITE squad, the team also housed a successful Counter-Strike: Global Offensive lineup. The organization ceased operations on January 13th, 2016.[1]

History

Season 1

The European upstarts Aquila, known for their come from behind victories, were acquired by the eSports organization Titan on December 12th,[2] less than a month before they were slated to play at the SMITE World Championship.

Beginning January 9th, 2015, Titan competed in the first SMITE World Championship. After a victory over the Chinese 1st seeded OMG, Titan was knocked into the loser's bracket by the American 2nd seeded COGnitive Prime. Entering the knockout stage, Titan defeated the Brazilian champions We Love Bacon 2-0. The semifinals saw Titan paired against their European counterparts, the 1st seeded SK Gaming. In a repeat of the Regional Championships Finals, Titan took the series 2-0, advancing to the finals to square off against COGnitive Prime again. The first two games of the best of five quickly went the Americans' way, and they looked to have it under control. However, in typical Titan fashion, they came from behind to tie the series at 2-2. After a series of bans by COGnitive leveled heavily at Titan's Support player KanyeLife, COGnitive won a 24-minute game to claim the title of World Champions, giving Titan the second place finish.

Season 2

Spring Split

Titan was met with middling performance throughout the Spring Split, losing to both the newly formed TRIG eSports and the newly reformed Fnatic. Both teams would beat out Titan in the final standings, qualifying for the Spring Finals and leaving Titan behind in 3rd place. Just before the start of the Summer Split, former Hunter Ataraxia would switch roles with Solo Laner Confrey. The team stated a need for revitalization as the motivation behind the swap.

Summer Split

The role swaps did well for Titan, energizing the team to a solid Summer Split performance. They finished 1st in the split with an 11-3 record, dropping two games to Paradigm (then still TRIG) and a single game to Fnatic. Mid Laner PrettyPriMe and Support KanyeLife earned spots on the EU MVP team, and Titan qualified to compete in the Summer Finals.

As the first European seed, Titan earned a Quarterfinals bye at the Summer Finals. In the semifinals, Titan faced off against the EU third seed Paradigm, fresh off a convincing victory over Cloud 9. They won Game 1 easily, snowballing an early first blood into a quick victory. However, Paradigm would dominate the rest of the series, winning three consecutive games to knock Titan down to the third place match. Once there, Titan encountered their first seed counterparts from the American side, AFK Gaming. They would once again struggle, however, failing to lock down a single major objective in a 2-0 stomp from AFK. Titan would finish the Summer Finals in 4th place.

Fall Split

Early in the fall split, it was announced that long time coach, CaptCoach, would move leave the team to coach Avant-Garde from Oceania.[3] Titan showed some inconsistency during the first half of the split, and it would lead to some changes in the roster. During week six, coach, Omgimabird filled in for Confrey in the hunter role. During that week the team went 1-3 and many had questions as to what would happen to hunter player Confrey. Just days later, the team announced that Confrey would be leaving the team and former coach of Team Instinct, BroTuZ, would be the new solo laner. With this acquisition, captain Ataraxia moved back into his original roles as Hunter.[4]

Pre-Season 3

On January 12th, 2016 the organization announced that their roster would part ways and that the organization would withdraw from SMITE.[5] Only one day later Titan announced they would cease all operations.[1]
