LGB sign female team

LGB eSports have announced that they have solidified their position in the Counter-Strike scene by signing the female team known as ICY Phoenix.

The last few weeks have been full of activity for LGB. First, the Nordic organisation parted ways with Mikail "⁠Maikelele⁠" Bill following the team's 5th-6th place finish at Copenhagen Games. Then, the organisation sold the rights to Håvard "⁠rain⁠" Nygaard, one of their most prized assets, to Kinguin, which entered the CS:GO scene with an international lineup featuring players from four different countries.

While the situation of their male lineup remains unclear as Preben "⁠prb⁠" Gammelsæter and Kristoffer "⁠Mystic⁠" Michelsen have been filling in for the team until two permanent replacements are found, LGB have moved on a different front by securing the services of the female team known as ICY Phoenix.


aurora's team move to LGB 

The Norwegian team were recently in attendance at Copenhagen Games, where they finished in 5th-8th place following a 1-2 defeat against Karma, who would go on to win the tournament, in the quarter-finals. 

Not all the players who were in Denmark last month will be making the move to LGB, however, as Jenny "⁠Jennyzz⁠" Sundström will be replaced by Hanne "⁠HaySS⁠" Skårdal, bringing the number of Norwegian players on the team to four.

"This is an exciting project for us and I strongly believe this will grow Counter-Strike even bigger when girls find out what a fantastic game it is," says LGB chief Per Lilliefelth.

"We will give the girls the right tools and support they need to succeed and with this in mind, we believe we can blur the border between boys and girls.

"We believe we can create an entirely new ranking in the game in which girls are also involved. We hope that more teams and organisations will understand the importance of girls in eSports."

LGB eSports' female team consist of:

Norway Aurora "⁠aurora⁠" Lyngdal
Norway Matilde "⁠mattye⁠" Wiik
Norway Hege "⁠Hedje⁠" Botnen
Sweden Lizette "⁠L.K.S⁠" Scheich
Norway Hanne "⁠HaySS⁠" Skårdal

Finally! It became time one of the larger organizations picked up a female team and promote CSGO among girls. They haven't been taken very seriously, while the amount of girls playing CSGO is increasing by the month. All the best to LGB's female team!

True. And that's why I wrote "one of the larger organizations" :) LGB might not be as big as Kinguin/TSM/fnatic/VP/NaVi, but they are definitely in the league right below them (comparable to dignitas/mouz/PENTA etc.) when you look at size/players/history/achievements. Especially when they won't let rain go so easily after being paid a rumored hefty sum, I'd say they are a pretty professional "larger sized" organization that belongs to the upper echelons of CSGO teams.

Yeah let's hope they can play seriously and practice every day and not doing teamphotos every fucking day like the other female teams have done in the past. This is not a top model.

We believe we can create an entirely new ranking in the game in which girls are also involved. Girls are involved in current rankings, they just couldnt reach the first page. If you sign a girl-team as professional, at least release a nude-pic calendar every year they dont participate in any decent LAN event. ( not those girl only comps, cause those are there for no reason in eSport )
