The plan of creating a second team had been on the Slackers table for quite a long time. The initial idea was to gather active new players that would form a division five team. There was something like an application form and somewhat of a site made by Murdoc. It was well over a year later, maybe even two, when things started to roll again.
It was quickly decided that forming a division five team would need more time than they had, the plan changed to create a division two team with players that had potential to grow into division one. It didn't take too much time to get Cpe, Mja, TheEvilDog and Zero. It seemed wise to add a player from Slackers one to coach while being on the team itself and since the first team had enough members since Pascal joined Krab teamed up with Slackers 2.
EQL Season 5 was the first tournament that the team entered and it went fairly well. For different reasons during the season Åke Vader joined the ranks. After ending third in the regular season the team made the finals of division two where they faced Death Dealers. Having a degraded lineup, missing Åke Vader and Krab and thus playing with Zero, TheEvilDog, Mja and Cpe, the team couldn't reach the level of playing they usually did. On the first two maps, dm3 and e1m2, Zero played very good and thus the team took a 2-0 lead. After this Death Dealers, who played with Avenger, Serox, Keyser, Moltas, Plast and Blasphemer, won the next three maps and thus the division 2 final.
After the season summer kicked in and about a month before the regular season Martin joined Slackers. Åke Vader had left due to inactivity and there had been little to no pracs. At this stage a new idea came up, creating two even division one teams. The initial idea was to have ParadokS, Murdoc, Insane and Krab in one team and Martin, Pascal, Dragon and Zero in the other. After a few weeks and not too many pracs from both teams Martin and Pascal decided to revive Fragomatic.
After this event things turned back to the old situation of having SR1 and SR2. Since Slackers 2 got promoted to division one and were struggling a bit it was decided they needed some recruits. The first one to join was Purity, Dragon had been lobbying for ages to get him in Slackers itself but it never happened. Slackers 2 was less of a problem but even with the new player the team still wasn't ready for division one and after some serious talking skills by ParadokS the old Lege Artis player (just like Purity playing in Freedom the season before) Striker joined and the team was complete.
EQL Season 6 turned out to have two sides, at the start of the season everybody was active, Sassa was an admin and said the playoffs would be held on QHLAN 11, then the site went down and nothing happened before the new year had started and someone else picked up the slack. Without a site playoffs were held, Slackers 2 had played maybe two maps in a few months time and Striker was nowhere to be found. Still they managed to win an e1m2 against the later winners The Viper Squad in the semifinal.
The season after activity wasn't high enough to keep two teams and both merged. The then former second team players zero and krab became regulars in the starting lineup from EQL Season 7 onwards, zero remains active and a starter in the first team of Slackers to this day. Other ex-Slackers 2 players Mja and Purity made official appereances for the first team a few times per season between EQL7 and EQL11 including the EQL10 semifinal against Fragomatic. Ex-SR2 player TheEvilDog played for the first team in EQL10 and EQL11 group games. Krab took a step back in EQL Season 12 when En_karl joined the first team, when ex-Slackers and Slackers 2 player Striker also joined he even became number 6 during this season. When En_karl left again the season after, EQL Season 13, he was pretty active as number 5 again as Striker took a spot in the first four.
A few years after the second team merged with the first, in december 2010, Slackers decided to revive this project. Ironicly the first Slackers team featured a lot of old Slackers 2 players since Striker, who didn't play since he quit while he was in Slackers II rejoined Slackers shortly before the revival of the seacond team. Zero was still a starting player and also krab was active with the first team as their fifth player. The new Slackers II team played their first games together in the EQL Pro qualifications, where they were unable to qualify being a fresh team who didn't play together at all before the qualification started. The players they fielded were Phrenic, CrazyMac, Niomic, Jebbis, Kloze and Bandit. As CrazyMac only played the qualification because ParadokS asked him to and he didn't intend to stay with the team, Niw took his spot in the new lineup.
With this lineup they entered EQL Season 13 and played in division 1. Slackers II missed the playoffs due to some controversial decisions by the admin team. Besides the fact that the points system was a bit weird (flawed in some peoples eyes), meaning that SR2 with 4 games won missed playoffs while TKS made it while they only won two games (but lost more often with 1-2). The controversy was that TKS was allowed to play DC after the regular season ended even though this season intentionally didn't feature a catch up week and also that the admins allowed them to play both games (against the same opponent) on the same day (this wasn't allowed according to the rules). This led to some drama and TKS passing SR2 on the standings after the last day of the regular season, knocking SR2 out of the playoffs.
After this season the team was rebuild, Bandit and Moje were asked to leave. Phrenic decided to try his luck elsewhere and joined the new team Sublime. Krab went back to lead the second team since he didn't get much playing time in the first team and TheEvilDog rejoined the second team, they formed the new team with niw and Kloze who stayed with the team. niomic is expected to come back after summer when the competitions start again.
