Team SoloMidwas formed by brothers Dan and Andy Dinh in September 2009 and has since evolved into a worldwide League of Legends powerhouse. Their first major tournament was the RiotSeason 1 Championship in 2011, and they’ve had a steady stream of wins ever since. TSM now also includes a SMITE team, who executed a flawless victory in the first SMITE tournament by winning every game they played. TSM’s fans are some of the best and most intense in the professional gaming scene, with chants of “TSM TSM TSM” being so loud that they drown out the stream’s shoutcasters.
