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.

History

Season 1

The European upstarts Aquila, known for their come from behind victories, were acquired by the eSports organization Titan on December 12th,[1] 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.
