Team Hopeful was formed after MLCst3alth and JeffHindla left Cloud9. Having initially no name, MLCst3alth named the team "Team Hopeful" after Hi-Rez caster F. made a tweet about the team hopefully making the SPL. With many fan favorites returning, such as Garz and madmanmarc22, this was one of the anticipated teams of Preseason 3. However after Woony Tunes' (ex-Cloud9) solo laner Baskin left their team to play on Problem Solved, JeffHindla was asked to return to the team. Later that day MLCst3alth also announced he would join Team EnVyUs, eventually leading the team to disband.
