Alliance is an organisation founded by Team Razer and Evil Geniuses owner and CEO Alex Garfield in 2013 who were revealed to be the mystery sponsors of the Swedish rising stars of No Tidehunter. Alliance was created with the goal of promoting and supporting Scandinavian and European eSports across the world, enabling the truly talented players of the region to shine on the international stage and initially held only Swedish players, the Dota 2 squad consisting team captain Loda, midlaner and playmaker S4, support players EGM and Akke as well as off-laner and Lone Druid pub-star AdmiralBulldog. Although the team has used different drafters over time, such as S4, 7ckngMad, Chessie and Pajkatt, the team captain has been Loda since the creation of the team contrary to the norm that the drafter is the team captain as seen in almost all other teams.
Alliance has been one of the fan favorite teams after NaVi. Their popularity rose especially during their rivalry against NaVi during TI3.
