Overview

Chicks Dig Elo (CDE) was an all-American team consisting of Xpecial, Reginald, Saintvicious, Dyrus, and Chauster, who formed the team because the normal teams of Team SoloMid, Epik Gamer, and Counter Logic Gaming could not compete in World Cyber Games due to their lineups not being from a single country.

In the American WCG trials, they took second place behind Team Dignitas to earn the right to be one of the two American League teams at the 2011 WCG finals in Busan. They then dominated the finals, winning the gold medal without losing a match. In an all-American quarterfinal, they avenged their US trial championship loss against a Dignitas team including Scarra, ImAQtPie, Jatt and Voyboy and then bested a Millennium team playing for France and including Soaz and YellowStar before beating Gameburg Team, who were representing Poland and including the likes of Kikis and Makler, in the gold medal match. Their achievement eventually become even more significant, because following WCG 2011, no North American team won a major tournament with Korean teams present until TSM won the IEM Season IX World Championship in 2015.

As the team was created solely for the purpose of World Cyber Games-style national team tournaments, it has been inactive since winning WCG 2011 with one exception. At IEM San Jose, Saintvicious reformed Chicks Dig ELO for his celebrity ARAM money match against HotShotGG. Reginald and Chauster also returned, while Benny and Liquid112 stepped in for Dyrus and Xpecial against Hotshot's "Old But Good" all-Commonwealth team (which, similarly, featured four of the five starters from the CLG team that represented Canada in Busan: HotShot, TheOddOne, Chaox and BigFatLp.) CDE won the match and $10,000 despite not only giving up first blood but also an 0-5 ace in the opening team fight.
