History

Creation of Counter Logic Gaming

Counter Logic Gaming was founded by HotshotGG on April 16th, 2010, after he left messiahwins due to an inconvenience between HotshotGG and Reginald. The initial roster consisted of Locicero, Grandjudge, Chauster, Nolja, HotshotGG, Clever, Sabertiger, bigfatjiji, Lilballz, and Kobe24. This large roster did not last long, however, as many members left due to various reasons; Locicero left to focus more on school, Grandjudge had difficulty competing in tournaments due to living in Korea and eventually lost contact with HotshotGG, Nolja was in Korea as well and also had difficulties attending tournaments in addition to being very inactive, Clever left as he wanted to play more casually, Sabertiger left since he was recruited into the army, and Lilballz had difficulty attending tournaments due to living in Taiwan.

Eventually, the official roster was formed, consisting of HotshotGG, bigfatjiji, Chauster, Kobe24, and Elementz.

CLG lost the first best of three series 0-2 to Team OP, but came back in the final set and won 2-1 against the Korean team, taking home first place. [2]

In early 2011, Kobe24 officially retired from professional gaming and thus left Counter Logic Gaming. On February 23rd, 2011, Saintvicious took Kobe24's place and joined CLG as their new jungler.

On June 18, 2011, Counter Logic Gaming attended the Riot Season 1 Championship in Sweden. CLG started off going 2-1 in the group stage, defeating gamed!de and Xan, while falling to Team SoloMid.

A day after the start of Season 2, Counter Logic Gaming benched long standing member Elementz in order to add Doublelift to their active roster.

On May 19th, 2012, Counter Logic Gaming went through a roster reformation, benching long time CLG member Saintvicious, adding top laner Voyboy from team Dignitas, and having HotshotGG switch to the jungling position.

Two days after the roster change announcement, CLG also announced their name change from Counter Logic Gaming to Counter Logic Gaming Prime to avoid confusion with their second North American team, Counter Logic Gaming Black.

Counter Logic Gaming Prime would be one out of the two North American teams to be invited to compete in the Azubu The Champions Summer 2012 tournament hosted in Seoul, South Korea. Placed into Group D, Counter Logic Gaming Prime would fall in their first game in group stage to Counter Logic Gaming EU. Despite the early loss to CLG EU, Counter Logic Gaming Prime would come back and qualify for the playoffs by defeating LG-IM and MVP Blue in the fifth and sixth games in the group stage, ending group play with a 2-1 second place finish. In the playoffs, Counter Logic Gaming Prime would unfortunately be eliminated from the tournament by losing to Azubu Frost 0-2, ending the event with a 5th-8th place placing. Despite no longer competing in the Azubu The Champions Summer 2012 tournament, Counter Logic Gaming Prime would stay in a gaming house in Korea to practice for the upcoming North American Regional.

Counter Logic Gaming Prime would fly back to North America to participate in the Season Two North American Regional Finals. In their first match at the event, Counter Logic Gaming Prime would pull out a 2-1 victory over Team Legion. However, in the semifinals Counter Logic Gaming Prime would fall to Team Dignitas 0-2, dropping to play in the third place match in order to qualify for the Season 2 World Championship. There, Counter Logic Gaming Prime would win two games in a row against Curse Gaming to take third place at the event and secure a spot at the Season 2 World Championship.

At the Season 2 World Championship in October, CLG Prime only managed a 9th-10th place finish. Despite attempts at several unconventional strategies, the team was knocked out in the group stage, falling to Invictus Gaming and Azubu Frost. Their sole win came against SK Gaming through a triple Teleport and Promote tactic, but it was not enough for CLG to advance. They took home $ 50,000.

On October 22nd, Counter Logic Gaming Prime's lineup went through several changes. First, Voyboy departed and former MiG Frost AD player Locodoco was picked up to play as the new support. With this change, long time support player Chauster shifted to the jungle position and HotshotGG would move back to his original top lane role.

Pre-Season 3

CLG prime would attend the 2012 MLG Fall Championship in Dallas on November 2nd through 4th. In the first round they faced the Korean powerhouse NaJin Sword, where they were routed in two lopsided matches. Falling to the losers bracket, CLG Prime would sweep Curse Gaming in round one, and then pick up a close 2-1 series against another NA team Dignitas. They would face their sister team CLG EU in Round 3. Unfortunately, they were outmatched as the European team eliminated them 2-1 from the tournament.

On November 29th, CLG would enter the IPL 5 tournament held in Las Vegas. In the group stages CLG Prime would dispatch the newly formed Team FeaR twice while dropping a game to CLG EU to advance. In the first round they would defeat Curse EU 2-1, and then move on to face FnaticRC. CLG Prime managed to take the first game off Fnatic with sharp play from their Jiji's Twisted Fate, however the champion was quickly banned out and CLG Prime would lose the next two games. In the losers bracket CLG Prime would face Moscow 5, they would take the first game of the set, but then fell twice against the Russian team, finishing their run in the tournament. CLG Prime would place 5th-6th with $2,500 in prize money. CLG Prime outperformed most expectations of them at tournament, with a strong showing of Chauster as the new jungler, they also challenged the perception of Team Solo Mid as the strongest team in the NA scene[12].

After the event, Locodoco expressed in an interview that "coming to America was a mistake"[13], but added that it did not indicate he would be leaving the team. On December 4th however, CLG announced the departure of Locodoco. They would use Nhat Nguyen as temporary substitute in the coming MLG Prizefights.

On December 28th, CLG officially announced Aphromoo as their starting support player to fill the position left by Locodoco, and the acquisition of LiNk as an alternate player. Also announced were the resignation of Chief Executive Officer Helen “RealMomGG” Georgallidis and Chief Operations Officer Robert “CyberBob” Del Papa, promotion of Kelby “SAYOCEAN” May to General Manager for the organization, and the renaming of the premier squad back to the original Counter Logic Gaming name from Counter Logic Gaming Prime, due to the departure of Counter Logic Gaming EU and disbanding of Counter Logic Gaming Black, leaving the previously known Prime as the only team under the CLG banner. [14]

Following the acquisition of LiNk, on January 15th, bigfatlp announced that he would be stepping down from the starting roster to a substitute position, citing lack of confidence in his own play. [15]

Season 3

Into the first week of Season 3, on February 9th, Bloodwater was announced to be the second substitute player of the team,[16] but he left the team 4 days later.[17]

After 10 weeks Round Robin with Team SoloMid, Team Dignitas, Team Vulcun, Team MRN, Curse Gaming, Good Game University and compLexity Gaming, CLG successfully qualified to Sping Season Playoffs. However, CLG was outplayed by Team Vulcun with 1-2 in Quarterfinals, placed 5th-6th with Team Dignitas. Also, CLG failed to qualify to Riot Season 3 NA Championship Series Summer Season and participated in Summer Promotion. In the Summer Promotion, CLG faced Azure Cats in the promotion match. Fortunately, CLG defeated Azure Cats 3-0, securing their spot in the Riot Season 3 NA Championship Series Summer Season.

As the unsatisfactory result of LCS Spring Season and preparing for LCS Summer Season, HotshotGG decided to step down from top lane and acquired Nientonsoh to fill the position. Moreover, bigfatlp returned to the main roster as jungler while Aphromoo left and Chauster returned to support position.

On July 24th, 2013, CLG announced that MonteCristo would be joining CLG as a coach.[18]

The Summer LCS Season proved to rocky for the new CLG roster, spending most of the season competing to stay in middle of the pack, ending the season in 6th place with a 13-15 but able to make it into the playoffs. Their first game was against old time rivals TSM but they were unable to win a game, going 0-2, losing their chance to make it to the Season 3 World Championship. They went on to face Team Curse to compete for the 5th place spot to win a spot back for the Season 4 Spring LCS. They were able to come together and go 2-0 and win back the spot into the league.
