On opening day for the 2020 LCS spring split, FlyQuest announced their ‘Treequest’ campaign. The North American team plans to plant trees throughout the year, and the entire league is going to be able to contribute.

One of the most fascinating parts of League of Legends is the jungle. Filled with fascinating creatures and lush trees, the jungle is, of course, also home to the jungler player, which is a role that dominated the LCS offseason.

Prior to the 2020 spring split, numerous high-profile junglers departed their teams for new destinations. Immortals saw William ‘Meteos’ Hartman leave for 100 Thieves, but were able to fill the void with the massive acquisition of Jake ‘Xmithie’ Puchero. The reigning MVP in Dennis ‘Svenskeren’ Johnsen turned to the dark side, leaving C9 for Evil Geniuses.

Despite all the changes at that role, the actual jungle itself largely remains the same except for a handful of subtle alterations.

But one team in FlyQuest are looking to leave a positive change on the actual jungles and forests of the world, as they announced their TreeQuest campaign on LCS opening day, January 25.

TreeQuest is the first step in the organization’s Go Green Initiative for 2020, and will see them plant trees through the OneTreePlanted non-profit by getting kills, playing objectives, and racking up wins.

For every kill the organization will plant one tree, for every win they will plant 100, and for every Ocean Drake claimed by any team during any LCS match, they will plant 10 trees.

The Go Green Initiative that the team is pursuing this year is represented in some of their merch and branding, which features floral design and the #GoGreen tag. They’re also giving out Ikebana floral arrangements at their LCS tailgate.

After a decent 2019 spring split that saw the team finish with a 9-9 record, they struggled in the summer, finishing that split with a 5-13 record that was second-to-last in the league, just one game ahead of Echo Fox.

FlyQuest are looking to improve this split after the moves they made during the offseason, signing a reliable support in Lee ‘IgNar’ Dong-geun from Europe and a very solid midlaner in Tristan ‘PowerOfEvil’ Schrage.

The team has yet to finish above 4th place in any split since joining the LCS at the beginning of 2017. They kick off their 2020 campaign against Immortals.
