FXOpen e-Sports was the competitive gaming division of the forex trading company FXOpen. Its StarCraft II team split into three rosters: a Korean roster, comprised mostly of former For Our Utopia players, a European roster, comprised mostly from the Guild of Imbalance clan that was previously known as imba.FXOpen,[1] and a North American roster, comprised mostly of former Team Legion members.[2] They participate as three different teams in various team leagues, but nevertheless represent the same team.

Overview[edit]

In early December 2010, FXOpen, Forex Trading Company, announced their intention to own and manage a competitive StarCraft II professional team. This most recent branch of FXOpen, dubbed "FXOpen e-Sports", was formed not only to host and sponsor events like the FXOpen Path of Ascension, but to support a competitive team with a view to furthering e-Sports.[3] The team began with a SEA/Oceania focus as team owner BoSs worked for Forex's FXOceania division. FXO has since expanded to Korea, Europe, and most recently North America.

On March 29th, 2013, FXOpen announced they had stepped into the Dota 2 scene by signing a professional Korean team.

On the 1st of November, the remainder of FXOpen e-Sports, that is, the Korean StarCraft II and Dota 2 division under Choya's leadership reverted back to their former team fOu after FXO stopped sponsoring the team.[4]
