CLG Black is a North American team.
Formation of Counter Logic Gaming Black
On April 30, 2012, Counter Logic Gaming announced through saintvicious's twitter that the organization was looking for players to form a CLG B team. The team was finalized and officially created on May 21, 2012, with Hoodstomp and LiNk coming from Orbit Gaming, Bloodwater coming from 4Not.Fire, Zuna coming from mTw.NA, and Sycho Sid.
Counter Logic Gaming Black's first event together was the National ESL Premier League Season 3 on May 30, where they had 2-0 victories over Team Green Forest, Absolute Legends NA, and Lzuruha Gaming to take home first place and the grand prize of $2,000.
On June 15, 2012, CLG Black attended their first LAN tournament, competing in the GIGABYTE Esports LAN. CLG Black went 2-1 in the group stage, defeating Team Green Forest and Curse Gaming, but losing to Team SoloMid. They placed second in the group, advancing to the playoffs where they defeated DirtNap Gaming and Team Dynamic 2-0. They played against Team SoloMid in the finals, losing 0-2, and finishing second with a cash prize of $3,000.
On July 14, 2012, CLG Black participated in the Leaguecraft ggClassic Presented by Arqade. They went 4-1 in the group stage. In the playoffs, they first defeated Curse Gaming 2-0 but then lost to Team Dynamic 1-2, dropping them into the loser's bracket. They then beat mTw.NA 2-0 and faced Team Dynamic in the finals. They beat Dynamic 3-2 in the first series and then played a best-of-three for the grand finals which they lost 1-2, finishing second with a cash prize of $2,000.
On December 28, CLG Black disbands due to differences in aspirations of members amongst the team.
In January 2015, CLG formed a new Challenger team, which also bore the name CLG Black. They played in the Challenger ladder under the name crushed dreamz to qualify for the NACS Spring Qualifier. There, they defeated Rock Bottom Gorillas and Team Liquid Academy to successfully qualify for the spring season. However, in the spring season they placed sixth and last, after playing the last day with their manager samy substituting as support and losing a tiebreaker to TSM Darkness. CLG Black retained their summer season qualifier seed from having participated in the spring season, receiving a first-round bye. However, after defeating Maelstrom, Stixxay was banned for two weeks (weeks 2 and 3 of the split) because of toxicity. Using substitute AD carry Frost, they lost to Cloud9 Tempest and then to Magnetic, missing out on the NACS summer season.
