Counter Logic Gaming, often abbreviated as CLG, is an established professional gaming organization with teams competing worldwide at the highest levels. They are known for their League of Legends team that is the oldest League of Legends team still active.

History[edit]

Counter Logic Gaming was created as a League of Legends team on April 16, 2010 by George "HotshotGG" Georgallidis after parting ways with his former squad due to internal disagreements. While the original League of Legends team consisted of a huge total of ten players, their starting five-man roster soon took form, consisting of HotshotGG, bigfatlp, Kobe, Chauster and Elementz. Since then, Counter Logic Gaming has won 2 NA LCS titles, 2 regional tournaments and is an MSI runner-up.
