Overview[edit]

Team oGaming is a professional North American eSports team, that competes actively in Starcraft 2, League of Legends and Counter Strike: GO. Our team motto "Spectemur Agendo" in Latin standing for "Let us be judged by our actions".

Team oGaming was founded in September 2003 as a competitive Starcraft:Broodwar team. It did not take long before the team would become a household name, boasting a number of champion players from all corners of the globe. The famous "oG)" tag would be a common sight to be seen in the WGTOUR, PGTOUR, ICCUP ladders at the time, with the team also being well represented in World Cyber Games events and oGaming members representing their countries in the Nation Wars format. The team went into hiatus in early 2007, as the Starcraft Broodwar scene slowly started to stagnate. Team oGaming would make a return later in 2010, with the fresh release of Starcraft 2. Team oGaming would later add popular Moba titles League of Legends in 2011 and Dota2 2012 to our ranks. With the team also adding adding a Starcraft 2 Academy at the beginning of 2013, although the academy team would later merge with the pro team.

After several key members of management left oGaming, and those left cited a lack of desire to keep the team going, Team oGaming closed its doors on January 3rd, 2014.[Citation needed]
