2019 LGD Spring1.PNG

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.

History

Formation of LGD Gaming

LGD Gaming, one of the most famous esport teams in China, created the League of Legends team in 2012, lead by bug (now NoName). By the result of TGA Grand Prix 2012, LGD qualified for the Season 2 China Regional Finals, but fell short by losing to Invictus Gaming. In the 2013 season, Tencent had formed the Championship Series in China, LPL. LGD was one of the teams which had high hopes to join the league, but they failed in both the 2013 Spring Qualifier aswell as in the 2013 Summer Qualifier . They finally were succesful in the 2014 Spring Season and became a strong team in the LPL.

2015 Season

After failing to qualify for the 2014 World Championship, LGD decided to search for Korean players hoping to be able to qualify in the next season. Acorn from Samsung Blue, imp from Samsung White, and Flame from CJ Entus Blaze were all added to the roster, and LGD started their road to the top of China. Their Regular Season results were mediocre, with only a 7-5-10 record, but they still qualified for playoffs in 6th place. In the playoffs, LGD surprised expectations by beating both Oh My God and Snake Esports, 3rd-place and 2nd-place from the regular season, in back to back 3-0 sweeps to reach the finals to play against EDward Gaming. Although the series was close, EDG won 3 to 2 and advanced to the Mid-Season Invitational, while LGD took second place.

The Summer Season started out with Pyl, the team's captain and shotcaller, not being able to play in the first week. Fan replaced him in those games, but still, Pyl's absence led to underwhelming results. LGD ended the split with a 6-4-12 record, ending the Summer Split in 5th place and advancing to the Summer Playoffs. Despite their Regular Season finish, the team was expected to do well in playoffs, as in the last split they also didn't play particularly well until playoffs arrived. Those expectations proved to be right, as LGD defeated Vici Gaming and Snake Esports both 3 to 1 to advance to the Semifinals, where they beat heavy favorites EDward Gaming in a rematch of the Spring Split playoffs finals 3 to 0 against many predictions. They then played in the finals against Qiao Gu beating them 3 to 2, taking the first place finish in the 2015 Summer Playoffs and advancing as first seed from china to Worlds 2015. At Worlds, LGD disappointed heavily in week one, failing to win a single game. They bounced back slightly in week 2, taking games off of Team SoloMid and Origen but failing to beat KT Rolster. They were knocked out of worlds after placing third in their group.

2016 Preseason

LGD were the fan-voted team to attend IEM San Jose. They were knocked out in the first round, losing 2-0 to Team SoloMid.

2016 Season

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 positions respectively. They hoped to bounce back from their rough Worlds and post-Worlds performances and went into the 2016 LPL Spring Season 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 couldn't really play as a team. In the second half of the season however, they performed better and finished 4th in their group with an 8-8 record. They would face off against Vici Gaming in Round 1 of the Playoffs but would go on to lose 1-3 and finished 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 a 3-1 win over Newbee.

2017 Season

Despite a promising year on the horizon, LGD continued to struggle and finished the 2017 LPL Spring Season last place in their group. Although they had to attend the Summer Promotion tournament, they re-qualified for the LPL with a 3-0 win over Young Miracles. At the 2017 Demacia Cup the team lost 1-3 to Royal Never Give Up in the Quarterfinals and finished 5th-8th. Their summer season was similar to their spring one as the team finished last place in their group again.
