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. 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. The European team has since been transferred to Natus Vincere, while the North American roster, originally comprised mostly of former Team Legion members, was disbanded in August of 2013.
