Alliance ([A]) is a Swedish-centric pro gaming team. Founded by Razer and Evil Geniuses director Alex Garfield in early 2013, its original members were StarCraft II star Johan Lucchesi (NaNiwa) and an all-Swedish rising star Dota 2 team previously known as No Tidehunter - which included Akke, who had competed in Melee professionally as Sheik. Internationally, it is best known for its success in the Dota 2 arena - especially at The International 3 in August 2013, when it won the tournament and a $1.4 million first prize without losing a series.

On November 6th, 2014, it entered the Melee arena when it signed Armada.[1] On October 5th, 2016, Alliance announced that they would be expanding their Smash team by signing Armada's younger brother Android.[2] On December 12th, 2016, Twitch spun-off Alliance along with Evil Geniuses into player-owned organizations.[3] All original Dota 2 members in addition to Armada got a percentage of the company.[4] Armada parted ways with Alliance on February 16th, 2024.[5]
