The longest losing streak in Professional League of Legends history held by V3 Esports has ended.
V3 Esports of the LJL has finally broken their 39-game losing streak. Yesterday’s win against AXIZ was their first win in over a year.
Just a year ago, in 2020, V3 Esports was the Worlds representative for the LJL. They defeated DFM and won the 2020 Summer Split. Their Worlds run didn’t go so well as they went 1-3 and were knocked out in the Play-in stage, losing their star ADC Archer and their MVP Jungler Bugi after Worlds 2020.
They remained relevant in their region and were even one of the finalists in Spring 2021. V3 Esports’ losing streak started in the Summer Split of 2021. After 39 games in a row and losing 15 games in the Summer 2022 split alone, they finally broke their losing streak yesterday.

Former LCL team, VaeVictis Esports, previously held the longest losing streak record of 34 games. VaeVictis Esports was the first all-female League of Legends team to compete in the LCL. They were removed from LCL for being unable to field a competitive roster.
