third place finish in their group. They posted a 2-2 record after defeating
Team Jantelaget and Orange eSports and losing to NaJin e-mFire and Millenium.

substitutes. Also, the team captain, MiSTakE, would transition from being the
team's AD Carry to taking on the role of Support. Previous Support player A8000

participated in the Season 2 World Championship held from October 4th to
October 13th of 2012 in Los Angeles. Of the five regional champions (Team
SoloMid, Moscow Five, Team WE, Taipei Assassins, and Azubu Frost), four teams,
including TPA, were given a free pass out of the group stage based on a random
drawing. In the quarterfinals, TPA faced off against Korean team NaJin Sword.
Despite being the underdogs due to Sword's strong group stage showing, the
Assassins were able to come out with a victory, winning both games in dominant
fashion. They advanced to the semifinals against heavy tournament favorites
Moscow Five. Alex Ich's Evelynn play caught TPA off guard in the first contest
and put M5 one game up in the series, but TPA rallied and took the next two
games to beat the Russian powerhouse to earn a spot in the grand finals
opposite Azubu Frost. The Assassins once again dropped the first game in the
set, but Frost folded under TPA's stellar coordination and relentless pressure for
the next three games. TPA beat the Korean squad three games to one, capturing
the championship title and taking home the one million dollar grand prize. 
As Season 2 World Champions they also got a pack of 5 skins related to their
favourite picks realeased later during Season 3.

number one seed holding a 38-2 record throughout the regular season. The
Singapore Sentinels managed to defeat Saigon Jokers in the semi-finals, setting
the stage for a showdown betweem the two strongest teams in the GPL. TPA
managed to take the first two games without much trouble, with Stanley
constantly split pushing and outmaneuvering the opposition. SGS pulled out an
interesting shield strategy in Game 3, with Chawy on Karma in mid lane. The
strategy caught TPA off guard, and SGS managed to end the game in a rout of the
Taiwanese squad. The Sentinels attempted a similar strategy in Game 4, again
acquiring a large advantage early game. However, Toyz turned the tide of the
game with a spot-on Orianna ult during a close Dragon fight, which decimated
SGS and their chances at the title. In the end, Taipei Assassins secured 1st
place at the event, going 3-1 and taking home the championship ring.

massive upset in Round 2 against FnaticRC, falling 0-2 into the losers bracket.
There the Taiwanese team would sweep two series against the Singapore Sentinels
and Curse Gaming. Coming into Round 4, the Assassins faced CLG EU. The

managed to take a team fight and the game. In game 3 the Assassins again
prevailed in a long drawn out game, eliminating CLG EU from the IPL 5. TPA then
defeated M5 2-0, making it their fifth consecutive win against the Russian
team. In the semi-finals TPA was once again outmaneuvered and overrun by
