LGD Gaming (老干爹)
LOCATION: China China
MANAGERS: Pan "Ruru" Jie
CREATED: February 20, 2012(2012-02-20)

LGD Gaming, a Chinese eSports organization, picked up a League of Legends team in early 2012. The LGD club also sponsors several other teams and had already achieved success in the competitive DotA 2 scene.



LGD Gaming was created on February 20th, 2012. Their first tournament appearance was at the NVIDIA Game Festival 2012 where the team finished 4th after an 0-2 loss to EHOME. LGD were able to qualify for the Season 2 Regional Finals - Shanghai but didn't manage to qualify for Worlds after losing 0-2 against Invictus Gaming.


LGD spent most of the 2013 season playing in several tournaments. They achieved 1st place finishes at the 2013 TGA Grand Prix Winter and the Season 2 APG Premier League. They also attended the 2014 LPL Spring Promotion Tournament and qualified for the 2014 LPL Spring Split.


With their sights set on a trip to Worlds, LGD played in the regular season of the 2014 LPL Spring Split. In their first LPL split, they were able to finish 5th with 4 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses, barely missing playoffs. The 2014 LPL Summer Split was slightly more successful for the LGD squad. During the regular season they were able to place 4th which would qualify them for the 2014 LPL Summer Playoffs. However, they were quickly eliminated after losing 0-3 to Edward Gaming and then 0-3 to Star Horn Royal Club in the Loser's Bracket. With these heavy losses, LGD was unable to qualify for the 2014 World Championship.


After acquiring Korean imports Imp, Acorn and Flame, LGD entered the 2015 season with high aspirations. Despite a 6th place finish in the regular season of the 2015 LPL Spring Split, LGD was able to qualify for the 2015 LPL Spring Playoffs. In playoffs, they were able to take out OMG and then Snake Esports in two 3-0 sweeps. In the finals, despite putting up a very strong performance against Edward Gaming, LGD lost 2-3 in a very close series. The regular season of the 2015 LPL Summer Split was similar to the spring one for LGD. They would finish 5th, once again qualifying for playoffs. Looking to avenge their loss to EDG, they would take out both Vici Gaming and Snake Esports in 3-1 victories. In the semifinals they faced off against Edward Gaming and defeated them 3-0, avenging their defeat in the spring finals. With only the impressive rookie team Qiao Gu Reapers standing in their path, LGD would defeat them in a really close 3-2 series, finally winning their first LPL title. This would also qualify them for the 2015 World Championship.

At Worlds, LGD was drawn in Group D along with KT Rolster, Origen and Team SoloMid. Despite being the favorites in the group according to many analysts, LGD was unable to win a game in Week 1. They defeated Origen and Team SoloMid in Week 2 but were unable to deafeat KT Rolster. With a 2-4 record, LGD was eliminated from Worlds and finished in 9th-12th place.

LGD also attended 2015 NEST and IEM X - San Jose but were unable to place in the Top 4 in both tournaments.


With Flame and TBQ leaving in December of 2015, LGD entered the 2016 Season after signing MaRin and Eimy for the top lane and jungle position respectively. Hoping to bounce back from their rough Worlds and post-Worlds performances, LGD would go into the 2016 LPL Spring Split with high hopes. Being placed in Group A, LGD struggled in the first several weeks of play. Despite having good players in every position, they struggled to play as a team. In the second half of the season however, they started playing better and bounced back, finishing 4th in their group with an 8-8 record. They would face off against Vici Gaming in Round 1 of the 2016 LPL Spring Playoffs but would go on to lose 1-3, finishing the Spring Split in 7th-8th. Summer was a rough split for LGD as the team finished 5th place in their group. As a result of this, they would attend the 2017 LPL Spring Promotion but were able to re-qualify for the LPL after defeating Newbee 3-1.
