LGB sign ex-LondonC squad

LGB eSports have announced that they have secured the services of the former London Conspiracy team.

The Norwegian team was created earlier in the month and did not take long to raise a few eyebrows, defeating 3DMAX and myXMG in 99Damage Arena #2 before losing to PENTA Sports in a three-map thriller.

A few days later, the team parted ways with London Conspiracy, with former manager Robert "LillRobbaN" Jonasson admitting to feeling "betrayed" by the players' decision to move to a new organisation.


rain's new team join LGB's ranks 

LGB eSports, who were recently acquired by Diglife, a company that is a shareholder in Ninjas in Pyjamas and Copenhagen Wolves, have now formally unveiled Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel's team as their new CS:GO division. 

The team will make their first appearance under the LGB banner in the online qualifiers for ASUS ROG Winter, which will take place from January 10-11.

LGB eSports now have:

Norway Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel
Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Norway Sebastian "ensa" Aas
Norway Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad
Norway Morten "zEVES" Vollan

2014-12-30 21:27
precisely. lgb gave an offer to a lineup similar to the one we see being posted here constantly, but they refused the offer from lgb. that simple. those players that people want in lgb, did not want lgb. if that's not a clear enough message, then i don't know what is.

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.

igl role wont make ppl play good at LANs
2014-12-31 01:54
Some people play bad at LANs cuz their tactics are fuckign worthless, and nothing is working out for them. Besides, the 2 remaining players from the original LC lineup was the best players at LANs aswell, so wont be a problem

THere is no hate at all. People saying true things here about that this team would not do damage. The problem with norwegian pro_scene is that their skill is low. Even if I have met Robinu, u and others on MM I did not even strugle against them and we won easily with mix. But when u meet players like pasha, get_right, taz, u really feel that they are so good and u strugle vs them. DOn't know why, but it isnt so many talanted norwegians anymore

haha, lgb top20 confirmed when there are a lot of top homeless swedish players, lgb signs noob norwegian team suxx
2014-12-30 21:41
Noob Norwegian team is at least a team, unlike the dream lineups people are posting in the comments (including guys who would never leave their current teams, inactive guys like dennis, etc) that have never played a match together, practiced as a team together or announced their intentions of playing as a team. Real squad > fairytale squad Rain and RUBINO at least managed to qualify for a major, let's see what they can do with their new squad. All those top homeless Swedish players may not have assembled into an actual team, that's just speculation and wishful thinking. Meanwhile ex-LC plays official matches and practice together. Yes, as a Norwegian I can admit Norway has never produced a top10 team in CS:GO, but most of the Swedish mixes with so drool-worthy lineups never produced results either.
2014-12-31 02:46
do they get salary? if so could be new top 10 team

2014-12-31 03:00
but what is the line-up exactly? i wanted to know if these players are together, cuz that would be sick. Delpan or Fiffy(9-44neverforget<3) could fit in also, but i dont know
2014-12-31 03:11
I think it will be: twist schneider pauf berg zende Dennis is very unlikely to return unless someone offers him a lot of stability (and money) - I guess. Pauf gave a lot of hints on his stream last night, saying that they had been given an offer from LGB but had not accepted it - but without saying why or what had happened. He also said that he was now a part of flipsid3 even though it was not official yet.
2014-12-31 03:17
Thanks a lot! It is still a great line-up, zende is a great player and an okay igl imo. Dennis is just amazing, if he comes back and joins that team they can beat anyone in a good day!

2014-12-31 00:49
FAir enough m9. Ofcourse it being about norwegians made an influence on my post. But Im guessing if an up and coming team from your country got a great org behind them, and recieved the same amount of harsh comments, you would also feel it was undeserved. Here I was thinking the LC guys were a popular team amongst the hltv majority. Boy was I wrong.
2014-12-31 02:43
Imagine NiP picking up FearLess Weber Hudzg Re1ease Puls3 Instead of the actual NiP. There'd be the same sort of weird dissonance between the reputations of the org and the linup.

Yepyep. Overexaggerated but I get your point. But my point was simply that there are so many harsh and unnecessary comments. And i honestly think this team is gonna prove alot of people wrong.

A lot of people doesnt realise that this isnt the same team that was at gfinity and ESL One, so they think they will perform the same as them.
2014-12-31 00:27
+1 I guess it boils down to people not knowing a whole lot about some of these players. I have for years considered jkaem to be one of Norways most promising talents, I would say jkaem arguably is the .no player with the highest skill ceiling. I am sure these guys will crank out some good results!

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 a let down. I was so hyped for twist+dennis+cype+schneider
2014-12-31 06:10
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.

I always see potential in LC team. But i never like when one team "steal" players from other. This guys can stay in LC and LGB could support another big talents. I hope LC with this exp will prevent (contracts) similar situations in future.

good writeup, i wouldnt be surpriced if lgb beats the swedish mix that everyone is so much in love with ;] i predict some very easy skins in the first matches of lgb esports :P

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.

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.
