Meet Your Makers, often abbreviated MYM, is a multigaming organization based in Germany, with divisions featuring Dota 2, Hearthstone, Call of Duty 4, Battlefield 4, and Heroes of the Storm. The MYM brand is one of the most recognizable in esports, with a storied history reaching back to 2000.

History[edit]

Danish MYM[edit]

Meet Your Makers, was founded as a Danish organization by Mark Peter "Mercy" Fries in 2000. The team has featured numerous legendary names within eSports, such as their former Norwegian Counter-Strike 1.6 team or three-time ESWC World Champion Polish team, their Warcraft III Dream Team, which featured players like Grubby, Moon and Lyn, as well as their legendary Danish Defense of the Ancients team, considered by many as one of the best and most stable DotA teams of all time.

MYM also hosted the famous MYM Prime Nations (an international country-based DotA tournament) and MYM Prime Defending DotA tournaments.

The Danish organisation faced financial difficulties (after paying very lucrative salaries to their players, including a record sum for their star Warcraft III player, Moon), and the company went bankrupt and closed down in 2009, including their famous DotA and Warcraft III squads.

German MYM[edit]

In August 2009, a German company bought the MYM brand and restarted operations, and brought back their Defense of the Ancients and recruited Warcraft III teams as well as later picking up Counter-Strike 1.6, FIFA, StarCraft II, Dota 2, League of Legends, and Hearthstone teams.

Their first venture into Dota 2 was with an invitation to The International 2011. MYM's mostly Danish DotA team, featuring PlaymatE, Maelk, MaNia, MiSeRy, and American player DeMoN, made their Dota 2 debut with a fourth place finish, falling to Chinese "powerhouse" and tournament favourite EHOME 2-0. The team disbanded shortly after the event.

MYM took no time getting back into the scene, signing most of the Singapore squad Scythe Gaming a month later, led by Hyhy and featuring iceiceice, with the addition of Malaysian DotA star Yamateh. In January of the following year, MYM reformed the team, keeping only Hyhy, and adding Malaysian MUFC players TooFuckingGood, Sharky, Ling and Net. This roster was not to last, as all but Hyhy returned to MUFC in late February. Hyhy would depart from the team in March to reform Zenith, closing, for the time being, MYM's Dota division.

MYM's return to Dota would come in the form of a mixed Danish and German squad, previously called The Tough Bananas, in late October 2012. Internal roster changes caused the sponsorship to be short lived, as the players went their separate ways in November of that year.
