History

2003
Founded on November 26th, 2003 [1], Team NoA combined members hailing from both Europe and North America into one of the first truly international professional eSports rosters.

The team initially set their goal of winning the CPL Winter 2003 event before forming the team[2], and with a month to prepare. The members temporarily relocated to California to practice at the Gamers-X LAN Center with Swedish team AdrenalineGX[3] a few weeks prior to the tournament.

The team placed 2nd at CPL Winter 2003[4] losing to Team SK in the grand finals. Notable wins include a 13-5 victory over Team 64, a 13-2 victory over AdrenalineGX and a 13-2 victory over Mousesports.[5]


2004
Two months after acquiring Ola "elemeNt" Moum[6] NoA traveled to Paris, France for the 2004 Electronic Sports World Cup. After winning their initial group stage[7], the team entered the second group stage and lost to Virtus.pro and TSG[8]. These relatively early losses resulted in a 9th-16th placing.

In contrast to the ESWC outcome, NoA moves on to go undefeated in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the EverLAN Summer 2004[9] event that was the precursor to CPL Summer 2004. After sweeping the group stage, NoA took the top seed heading into the quarter-finals. They had a narrow win over TEC that included one of the longest matches in Counter-Strike history after going into five overtimes.[10] They went on to beat United 5 in the semi-finals[11] before defeating Team EG 13-3 and 13-2 in the grand finals.[12]

Two weeks after EverLAN, the team competed in Dallas, Texas for their second CPL attempt at CPL Summer 2004.[13] They received the number two seed.[14] Upon entering bracket play, NoA took a quick loss to their first opponent, TAU.[15] A 13-11 win over Gamewyze followed by two wins over lesser known teams saw them face the west-coasts Team Rival. A loss in double overtime sent them home with 9th-12th.[16]

One month later at OsloLAN 2004, NoA placed 2nd to spiXel.[17] After a undefeated run in the upper bracket, NoA came up against spiXel who had been knocked down to the lower bracket in the 2nd round. The grand finals was over in two maps with a 16-13 and 16-8 defeat.[18]

At this point, knoxville[19] and Destructo[20] went inactive. NoA picked up XeqtR[21] and headed to Nollelva. They placed 4th overall, behind the Swedish teams spiXel, ICSU, and SK-Gaming.[22]

Approaching the end of 2004, NoA made a third attempt at CPL with CPL Winter 2004. They received a number eight seed[23]. A close win over MiBR[24] in the second round of upper bracket play put them against the winners of CPL Summer 2004, EYEballers. Strong play in the opening half by NoA was reversed after a flash bug thrown by Shaguar gave the rounds following it to EYE[25]. EYE took the advantage and knocked NoA down to the lower bracket. They made it to the grand finals after beating teams G3X, D!E, compLexity, Begrip, GamerCo.[26]. They became the first team ever to win a CPL after coming from the lower bracket by beating EYE two maps in a row.[27]

2005
In February of 2005 NoA traveled to Korea[28] for the inaugural season of the World e-Sports Games or WEG, an 8-team invite only tournament.[29] NoA won a best of three grand finals against 4kings, coming back after losing the first map.[30]

Following the Korean success, MiBR bought out elemeNt's contract and NiP's reserve roster member fisker came in to replace him[31]. However, only days before the start of WEG Season 2 fisker dropped out and was hastily replaced by quick[32]. The second season of WEG was fruitless as the team lost twice in group play and was sent home.[33]

Once home, Shaguar and method both received offers from Team 3D which they took[34]. This left NoA with a one man roster of Xeqtr, following Naikon's inactive status because of schooling[35].

In August 2005, a new lineup was announced consisting of new members DarK[36], Red[37], speedi[38], and Kixer[39]. A week later the team competed at CPL UK 2005. With the ninth seed they ended up finishing fourth overall.[40]

October saw NoA sent to Korea for a third time[41] after placing 2nd at the qualifiers behind Wings. Once in Seoul, the team was removed from play in the 2nd round of group play after loses to wNv.cn and Project_Kr with a final placing of 5th-8th[42]. The three swedes on the roster left following the result, forcing the team to reform once again[43].

2006
On January 4th of 2006, DarK was released from the roster.[44] NoA refreshed its roster with four new members this time around. Picking up Norwegians prb and xione[45], along with Danish players zonic and hpx[46], the first of many Danes to join. The new roster got a test run at the SHGOpen 2006[47] after a week of preparation. The team took 1st place after defeating fnatic in the finals.[48]

Following success at at SHG, once again NoA flew to Seoul, Korea to attend the WEG Season Four tournament[49]. Losing all three of their first three matches[50], the team was hastily dispatched and loyal to history, again made roster changes upon returning home.

This time Norwegian xione was out[51], in his place Xeqtr brought in the Danish player Paddy[52]. The summer saw team leader Xeqtr retiring from competitive gaming and leaving his roster without a Norwegian member for the first time in the history of the organization. Also leaving the roster, Preben "prb" Gammelsæter.[53]

To help fill the void, NoA brought in mJe and FaagaN.[54] Later that year, FaagaN went inactive and ave was added.[55]

Competing at the WCG 2006 Finals with the new lineup, NoA took home 4th place.[56]

2007
This gave NoA an entirely Danish membership. The new squad took top placings at Clanbase Eurocup XIII[57], and a third place finish at SHGOpen2007[58].

Paddy left the team in May of 2007 to "Pursue new goals". His replacement was Sunde, a Danish player formerly of Spirit of Amiga[59]. The new rosters first tournament was ESWC 2007.[60]

At the event, the first group stage was nearly perfect[61]. However, a loss to wNv.cn marred the record. Moving on undefeated in the 2nd group stage, they beat teams NiP, Dignitas, and Emulate on their way to the quarter finals[62]. Once there, NoA faced MiBR. The first map of the best of three series went to NoA in triple overtime[63]. On the next map, they once again won with a narrow victory of 16-14, placing them in the grand finals opposite of Pentagram. In a match that saw the crowd becoming very vocal, Pentagram took the first map 16-5. The second map went into two overtimes, with NoA taking the win 22-18. On the third and final map, NoA lost 9-16 and finished out 2nd.[64]

July of 2007 brought the World Cyber Games 2007 Grand Championship, and another second place finish for the team.[65]
