LGD Gaming have announced via Twitter that they have finally put together a Counter-Strike team.
The Chinese organisation had announced at the end of 2015 that they planned on expanding into Counter-Strike with hopes of building on the success that they have achieved in the Dota 2 and League of Legends scenes.
After conducting several trials over the last months, LGD have finally unveiled their roster, which will be led by veteran Xi "karl" Wang, who was part of the TyLoo team that competed at several international events between 2009 and 2011.
