thats bullshit. should have gone with the swedes
wOW who would have ever thought about them joining LGB?Absolutely fantastic move by LGB!WOW
Good luck I guess... they are going to need it.
These guys are allways disbanding and replacing players, LGB will fail so hard
LGB no swe team = BAD-LGB
ehh shame. I hoped for a swe line up with teamless guys.
old LGB much better :( rip
God dammit. LGB hype is dead. LC was shit.
I personally think this is a good signing. Give me another 5 that would have been better?
and ofc, they picked up the worst team..
WELCOME TO MID-TIER PRO LEAGUE, I WISH U BEST OF LUCK TO STAY TOGETHER, CUZ I KNOW U ARE TEND TO DISBAND AFTER FEW LOSSES...
so much hype for LGB before the announcement
LOL at everyone thinking it was gonna be a schneider team. Stream money too good to pass.
lgb will never be the same
LMAO HAHAHAHAAH best lineup ever
kevvz are u serious?!?! :S
Perfect. more free skins to win. good news
Tbh I think this team has a chance. People just dont realize it, cuz old LC had 3 other players, and that squad didnt do well. Keep in mind this lineup actually has a proper igl for once, which the old one didnt. And the people that was in the old LC lineup (That now is in LGB) was the best fraggers / players on the team. I think LGB will do just fine.
rofl this guys are going ruin lgb's reputation
Great potential in this team!
haha, expected. Also, failure expected.
Schneider and Twist.. :'(
don't like this move at all, very disappointing. R.I.P legendary LGB
disappointment level 9000
team will disband in 2 weeks
what a joke
no top 3 placings in any events with good teams
bad, excepted swedes and/or finns with rain and rubino
hope they do well now tho
haha, lgb top20 confirmed
when there are a lot of top homeless swedish players, lgb signs noob norwegian team
do they get salary? if so could be new top 10 team
another team that wont do anything at any major, good pick up LGB!
i dont think this team will achieve anything. bad move by LGB.
high expectetions my friends
boring, thought LGB would get a good team
THIS IS NOT LGB
april joke??? in december??...
-.- rip Lgb legend status
haahahahah what a noob team, they dont even win online ahahahaha LGB top 50
and LGB goes down the drain
holy fuck biggest eSport joke in 2015 :D
why would you sing a team with zero potential, just why
THE DISAPPOINTMENT IS REEEEAAAAL
lgb from having a top team to this, wasted
what a fucking waste a bunch of un skilled players calling themselves "PROS"
And there the networth of the LGB logo went down to -551548465
lgb just played well on katowice and nothing more x.x
they have potential to be a great team, i believe in this core and i always like them, but i was expecting something like:
What did you expect from LGBT? Gay team.
and here you see the ignorance of most people around here
They have talent, but LGB could get a better team tho :\
Gone but not forgotten
Forever in our hearts
Mistakes were made
Good luck, But what a stupid move by LGB....
why all these people are hating? give the guys a chance. after all, there should be a way for new teams to breakthrough to the scene.
Bullshit tbqh,not to be rude,but there aint much this team can do.
Schneider, twist, dennis, pyth and pauf would've been a much better lineup, the norwegian one looks like a joke to me..
There was actually a person who predicted this.
lgb is totally retarded, they could build top5 team from swedish free agents (except for twist)
People dont belive they can do nice work, people saying maybe top 500 but i have a feeling they will do it rly well and will be to the top 10.
meh, disbanding in 3 weeks because they cant win shit, worthy pickup indeed
whats the point in signing these guys? what are they gonna achieve?
I was right. Just saying...
I am a bit disappointed if I'm honest. I really don't see this team going very far. As much as I love Norway ( my future country), LGB would have been much better off picking up the Swedish mix. Well, I'm upset. Gg
Expected since it was speculated in a earlier news post.
Hope it works out for both parties.
What the actual fuck is wrong with this community. Ive never been the one to complain about trolls or kids in the commentsection, but this is just plain ridiculous.
How about you wish a group of great guys who just got a golden oppurtunity good luck, instead of crying about it because it didnt turn out the way you had hoped. Jesus Christ.
this mm team gonna get rekt as per
People seem very negative.. Id like to see more from jkaem and zeves, but the score of Rain, Ensa and Rubino could be nuts.. I think people might be underestimating this team.
RiP real and true LGB:
Never forget [*]
guys at lgb sign this while drunk
HEIA NORGE!! *klapp klapp klapp*
LC will be now LGB, very cool. Maybe it makes them better. I'm curious why LGB get rid very good team with potential and scores 6 months ago to back up now to esport?
No matter how much I try to be positive about this lineup, my brain tells me it's not going to work. I wish you luck though!
dead team. not even top 20
much sad very dissapoint
don't ruin the beautiful logo and reputation of this teamname by being bad pls I beg you norwegians
bad team imo...
want to see a swedish team again
What an anticlimax. Shit team.
wow...thats one way to fuck up the LGB-brand...
LGB-olofm LGB-KRIMZ LGB-pyth LEGENDARY LGB <3 <3
Just wanted to clarify something that should have been clarified way earlier: LGB tried to sign a new Swedish dreamteam with pauf, schneider and some flipsid3 boys, but they did not accept their offer.
LGB tried to sign what all of you fanboys want, but the players did not want to be a part of LGB.
Now shut up.
People fail to realise that the swedish "dream" is not even a team. They turned down an offer to create a team, from what some swedes are saying, yet you people are telling lgb that they have made a big mistake, "rip lgb". What were they supposed to do, steal a team from the top 5 orgs? Yeah, right. God you people are so toxic. This is a great pick by lgb, lots of promise in this team. Hope they prove you all wrong. Stop being so salty, swedes.
What you doing now lilrob?
dunno why everyone is crying....outside of dennis and twist + everyone in fnatic and nip, swedish scene is pretty much shit
if old lgb had stuck together they would have started to look bad because they have no igl
RIP LGB, RIP 3DMAX...
Nice sponsor for bad teams!
BUHU! I dont get my wish! buhu why cant i pick the team? why arent i lgb? y iz im not pciking all tems and all players i want?
What a let down. I was so hyped for twist+dennis+cype+schneider
Disclaimer: When I say that this LGB team can be so and so good, I don't actually mean that they will be anywhere close to the 5-7 best teams in the world. But over time they should end up being between the 14th and 8th best team if everything works out fairly well.
In their (LGB's) two first matches ever after having been a team for only three days, they were able to completely dominate 3DMAX on Mirage and utterly demolish MyXMG on Inferno (16-6 and 16-2). They lost Cobble and Overpass to the same teams, which is perfectly understandable since they had not even practiced either map a single time. But they then won the deciding maps in even games.
The reason I am mentioning this is that dominating supposedly equal level teams like that is something I rarely see nowadays, and something I only associate with a select few teams. That win over 3DMAX came after them starting on the T side, too. So it's not like all they had going for them was a CT lock down. All in all I think it shows a lot of potential.
A team with a high skill ceiling and an ability to actually win something on a good day. Not just to grind out even wins.
You will be surprised at the individual skill in this LGB team. Similarly to other good teams, I think their strength will be that the team is full of players who can go off completely on their own and have a monster individual performance. All of them won't have those individual performances in the same matches, but they'll always have either Rain, Jkaem, Ensa, Rubino or Zeves compensating for the inconsistencies of whoever has an off day. I'm sure you noticed that I mentioned all 5 of the teams members? That's just how equally skilled I think they are. None of them are f0rest, but all of them have the ability to carry each other.
Jkaem is similar to Rain when he gets starting, but probably with an even higher skill ceiling. Rubino has games right around the same level, too. All three are very hard working, dedicated players who will probably only get better with time.
In the first match I ever saw Ensa in, he was able to win several AWP duels against JW and carried Norway to winning the first map point in the super close Sweden - Norway ESEC game. Lastly, we have Zeves who is by far the best IGL Norway has to offer. By comparison, that old LC lineup didn't even have a proper IGL. Zeves is a dedicated perfectionist who will put in the hours and do the homework required to read his opponents. I was going to compare him to Pronax, but I think Dazed or Happy are more accurate comparisons. Not because he's on their level, but because of his ability to sometimes top frag while calling for his team. And never being dead weight.
Almost no one knows who Ensa, Jkaem and Zeves are and might even assume they are downgrades from the old LC lineup. But what actually happened was that Rubino and Rain left LC to make the best Norwegian lineup possible, picking the above mentioned three players from the second and third best Norwegian teams.
Some of you will keep hating on this LGB lineup until they eventually quit, be it in 2020 or 2015. But why is that? Most of you seem to be disappointed in LGB for not picking up a top Swedish mix team, but the reality is that they tried to pick up those lineups you all fantasize about, but they were unable to sign them. So what was LGB to do? They wanted to pick up a Scandinavian team, and the Swedish lineup they had tried to pick up didn't work out.
Their next best option at that point? It very likely was picking up these Norwegian guys.
TL;DR: LGB was not able to come to an agreement with a lineup that would likely have been FLIPSId3 + pauf and schneider, and picked the best team they were able to get. People assume that anyone and everyone wants to leave their organizations behind and to play for LGB, but it just isn't so. This is probably the best team LGB could get from Scandinavia right now, and if you think they suck you should go watch some vods from the only pro games they have so far gotten to play with this lineup. Just keep in mind that those games were played after a total of 3 short days of practice on only a few maps. That impresses me.
wannabes with a new nametag .
Can I ask you (community) guys, what's the story about this LGB "legend" hype? They never did something special. All I remember about LGB is their n1 logotype and of course they had potential to be Top3 but they disbanded and that makes them legends? Damn this logic.
Good luck Norway, don't disappoint us.
Biggest Dissapointment in my whole Life.
Rest in Peace LGB.
Maybe new Guys has Potential but with the Expectations of a Caliber of LGB they only can fail.
fail comeback is real, sad to say this team wont ever be a top5 team
Interesting lineup, this can be good, don't underestimate this.
Just had an 'interesting' thought. The old LGB lineup is basically the eoL of CS:GO. A fan favorite that was able to surprise and rape big teams but who didn't stay together for a long enough time to win big tournaments.
My God, HLTV is literally worse than /v/. LGB will do fine, you children need to relax the absolute fuck out.
