Overview[edit]

Absolute Legends, usually referred to as aL, is a European multigaming organization founded as a League of Legends community website in early 2011. In late 2011 the website acquired a League of Legends team which to date still is what aL is best known for. The team also has players/teams in Call of Duty, CS:GO and StarCraft 2.

On September 8, 2012, aL parted ways with their Australian Dota 2 team.[1]

The former European aL Dota roster consisted mainly of veteran European players who once played for teams like MYM, Ravens and Ks.int.

The state of Absolute Legends is currently unknown. It is speculated that the organization has ceased to exist as they no longer have an official website. Originally, they had fielded an academy squad but that has since been disbanded during an unknown time, as the players have gone their separate ways.
