Purgatory was formed in the Summer of 2010 by Illuminati members Gilkey and Karma alongside Heaven and Earth member KillerDrew and Active Rush member Mimic. The team pulled off a big upset in its first mainstage match at MLG Raleigh, sweeping the highly favored Carbon. After a loss to Believe the Hype in the following round, Purgatory were eliminated by Warriors and finished 8th overall. Their next event, MLG D.C., was less successful, opening with a 3-1 loss to Dynasty before again being eliminated by Warriors, this time for a 12th place finish. Purgatory did not accumulate enough points to qualify for the Dallas National Championships, and the team parted ways after D.C.
