Royal Never Give Up have always been known for having world-class ADC that their strategy was built around. They lived and died by that sword. Most notable player who carried them to victories was Uzi. Currently, they might have found another ADC player to carry them to victory - GALA.

From their inception in 2015: RNG were weren't constantly the main threat from China that rivaled Korea, but they were always a team not to ignore. Even though they did have a few rough patches, they could beat any team at any time, mostly on the back of their ADC’s. These are their world results:

Worlds 2019 - 9-12th place.

Worlds 2018 - 5-8th place.

Worlds 2017 - 3-4th place.

Worlds 2016 - 5-8th place.
