Considered one of best teams in SBA for long, Photons grabbed a first title in Flag 2013.

After starting the series with a win against Chung Sing, the one-point loss against SAMURAI in the next round gave them the chance to play 7 games in the series.

Photons was unbeatable in the loser bracket. After beating Twisters, they re-beat Chung Sing and routed Ryders to earn a chance to come back and face SAMURAI again in the Final.
