CLG Red add klaudia, dabears to coach

August 25th, 2016 05:34

CLG Red have signed Klaudia 'klaudia' Beczkiewicz​ as their fifth and have also brought veteran CS 1.6 player Erik 'da bears' Stromberg on as coach of the team.

CLG Red have been without a permanent fifth member since the team parted ways with Canadian player Catherine "CAth" Leroux back in late May, with the team having achieved second place finishes at Copenhagen Games and Intel Challenge Katowice this year (and with their biggest result to date likely winning ESWC 2015).

CLG Red went through an application process while searching for their fifth player, similar to the way CLG Blue did so, with one of the requirements being living at the team's gaming house in Los Angeles.

missharvey's CLG Red have found a new fifth and new coach

The CLG organisation have now announced that a new fifth player has been found in Klaudia "klaudia" Beczkiewicz, who most notably played for eLevate's female team in 2015 (previously Team Karma) and will thus reunite with former teammate Benita "bENITA" Novshadian, and who has already played official matches with the team for the past month.

"I'm so excited to have the opportunity to play with CLG Red. We all share the same goals and have a similar mindset when it comes to CS. With great passion and determination, I only expect to get better results with the girls!" Beczkiewicz said on joining the team.

In addition, CLG have announced that they have added Erik 'da bears' Stromberg, who has an illustrious history in North American Counter-Strike, to help coach the team.

"I have more than just casting passion. I want to indulge myself in Counter Strike coaching. Over the years of winning championships, tournaments, and matches, I feel like CLG Red can benefit from my knowledge and wisdom. The goal for this team is to dominate all the female circuits, international tournaments, whatever there is that you want to throw at us - we want to be number one and the best," Stromberg had to say.

Stromberg played for the likes of Team 3D, TEC, u5, and JMC in CS 1.6 in addition to working as production at more recent events such as IEM San Jose and has even more recently begun appearing on the analysis desk for North American ESL Pro League Season 4 matches.

CLG Red are now:

United States Benita "bENITA" Novshadian
Canada Stephanie "missharvey" Harvey
United States Christine "potter" Chi
United States Diane "di^" Tran
United States Klaudia "klaudia" Beczkiewicz

United States Erik "da_bears" Stromberg (coach)

CLG Red will next attend Fragadelphia 9 in early September and are also competing in ESEA Main for this current season.

2016-08-25 05:35
Didn't he also play for EG later on? What I do remember is da bears was def one of the better NA pros way back.
2016-08-25 05:51
I remember him playing/slutting for a lot of teams after his stint in 3D. Officially i think he joined u5 and EG but i have a feeling he was in a lot of teams in between the main ones. TEC and DiE come to mind. JMC also in the later years

I still have an email from October 3rd, 2012, when da_bears sent me "aim_map.rar" and proceeded to crush me in the MLG 1 vs. 1 CS:GO tournaments that were running back then. What a gentleman. Sends me the map of my own execution.

Congrats. Not really. Youre just taking money from the prize pools. Women should have to compete with men. You broads want equality, but want female tournaments and leagues. Your opportunistic slugs. GO AWAY
2016-08-25 05:38
They hate sexism. But dont realize the only reason theyre relevant is because they have tits and ass. Youre not good at cs. Ive played against harvey many a times. The fact she is sponsored is appalling. No one gives a shit if youre a nice person. Youre riding on the fact you have a vagina. Congrats. Youre one step closer to prostitution
2016-08-25 05:44
top kek Replying to your own angry post with an angry post. top kek 28 / Male / Atlanta top kek Is it "appalling" that most ads for Lexus and BMW cars feature women even though 0.01% of Formula 1, Grand Prix, and NASCAR drivers are female? People buy things from ads of people that they relate to. There are these things you put into your ears to listen to music. You realize that 50% of people that buy headphones are female, right? So when Logitech wants to find people to sponsor... "equality" "GO AWAY" "closer to prostitution" virgin detected. top kek
2016-08-25 07:08
Using "top kek"... under 16 confirmed. Married to a woman who earns an income off of her brain. Try again white knight.
2016-08-25 07:33
Used top kek to mock your "vernacular". You are MARRIED to a woman? That means you pay MORE because of itemized deductions? Or you want to pay more for buying houses from filing jointly and losing fringe benefits? So you're #1 a hypocrite that buys into the 2nd-wave feminist belief of marriage or #2 an idiot that throws away money I'm the last thing from a white-knight and I hate 3rd wave feminism. You just accidentally told an accountant that you're married in an anti-feminism debate. Give up. You lost.
2016-08-25 08:12
XDDDD So because he's married to a woman he can't hate on the preferential treatment women get in CS just for being women, even though they're nowhere near the level male teams are? You're just trying to provoke people for no reason, probably because you're a fat autism aspergers having fuck.
2016-08-25 11:50
ding ding ding We have a winner. Bad troll is bad. The fact he doesnt know how to use vernacular in a correct sentence is quite telling of his age.
2016-08-25 17:38
"Is it "appalling" that most ads for Lexus and BMW cars feature women even though 0.01% of Formula 1, Grand Prix, and NASCAR drivers are female?" How have ads something to do with this ? xD Yeah 0.01% drivers are female, do you see millions of $ on female races of Formula 1, etc... ? There are these things you put into your ears to listen to music. You realize that 50% of people that buy headphones are female, right? So when Logitech wants to find people to sponsor... Once again, how are you talking about economy and advertisement we're talking about competition x)
2016-08-25 12:19
These competitions ARE advertisements for these sponsors. They could just as easily hire female gamers directly as showmodels to try to market to female buyers, but then they're getting minimal market exposure, and paying a fixed salary to relatively anonymous female gamers. By sponsoring competition, they get more air time for their products, get to appear more 'progressive' for their female audience, and also allow their showmodels to accumulate a small fanbase. It's smart marketing, and you're a sucker.
2016-08-25 14:15
What a cynical point of view about esports. Players don't give their time and dedication just for sponsors. Yon only see the game economically and this is why the system is fucked up.
2016-08-25 14:42
You're a romantic and thus naive. It's not "cynical", it's reality. Let's VAC ban all players and see how many go to banking like lurppis, university like nex, family business like RPK, etc. And how many continue to play for the sport. How many IBuyPower players still play the game? Stop being so romantic. It's all about $$$
2016-08-25 18:28
The worst part is female pros wonder why theyre so bad, yet we see NO female pros in Rank-S or FPL. How do they get better? By playing ESEA pugs all day? Is that what pros do now?
2016-08-25 08:00
Do you just like making up stories in your brain? Who "wonders"? No woman "wonders" why they can't beat LeBron so there's a WNBA. No woman "wonders" why they can't out-run Usain Bolt so there's a woman's 100-meter. No woman "wonders" why the can't be a chess grandmaster so there's a female world title. What's with this strawman argument? The smartest people are men. The stupidiest people are men (see: prison). Men have more variance in intelligence. Literally no one argues this.
2016-08-25 08:21
Your age shines through your posts. No one believes the bullshit you continue to spew in attempts to make yourself a little bit bigger online. Go finish school. Or anything in your life. Then come back.
2016-08-25 17:29
Real sports and esports are two entirely different beasts. I'm not sure why youre comparing them. Esports hardly has the same limitations as real sports. People say women have a higher reaction time. Yeah, cause every male pro has a 0.0001 ms reaction time right? /s Thats no excuse. You adapt. Its not like every female pro HAS to take GuardiaN esque shots with nutty reaction time. Play smart, position yourself and your team to your/each others strengths. Pros ADAPT, not get their own league because they cant play with the best. You got teams like FlipSid3, Alternate Attax, Team Kinguin, Team AGG, Team Liquid, OpTic, TSM trying their hardest to be the best. They are severely outclassed by the best. Why dont they get their own league? NO. They work long hours so they can close the gap.

de_bears the 1.6 legend new kids wont even know, good to see..... I know he plays/plaied esea pugs occasionally, or at least did last year....
2016-08-25 05:46
legend? He was tier 2 of american CS. Didnt make 3D until cs died. And he never won a decent tournament. Not sure why he said "championships through the years". Maybe he forgets some of us 1g are still around. And he can pass that bullshit off to you new fegs.
2016-08-25 05:48
He wasn't really a t1 NA player but in terms of t2 NA he was definitely one of the better players.

He is coming to be a coach... of CLG red. You do not need to be a tier 1 legend to be that anyways.
2016-08-25 06:58
Pretty sure he was in 3D around 2002, CS hadn't even hit its prime yet. No idea why you think it was dead. International i think his best result was a 3rd placing with JMC or he may have had some success before that with u5 (cant remember their clickarena result). Within NA though he was one of their top players most definitely.
2016-08-25 08:09
No.... no he wasnt. 3D didnt even get formed until 2002 lol. And he was on one of the LATE rosters. After CGS I believe. Dont argue with an old feg who was playing leagues with him. Thanks though :) Also....
2016-08-25 17:34
lol bro he was in 3D in 2002. They attended CPL summer 2002 with the lineup Ksharp, Bullseye, Jaden, da_bears, Rambo where they got famously knocked out by the Australian team fzer0. Its cool though, burgers being burgers. I started playing CS mid 2001, I would like to think I know what im talking about since I was following the scene since then :)
2016-08-26 04:08
hes a caster now lol

Oh god, someone with enough self-confidence to not be hyper-concerned with their fashion. Maybe when you get laid a bit more you will chill out and realize girls don't always care about your clothes, especially not the more interesting ones. If you are using virgin as an insult you are probably still in highschool though so there is still time for you.

nice memories but thats the most short lived and over hyped NA team ever, in typical NA fashion the favorite team from the US lost to the heavy underdog and then they went out themselves and that was it
2016-08-27 09:37
That's a supper confusing statement. Not sure what you meant. JMC was never over hyped, as they got 3rd as a huge underdog at cpl. Nobody thought they were going ot be anything great. They just happened to play one good tournament. Sure, they upset complexity, but complexity wasn't this high and mighty team. They were good by NA standards, but THEY are the most over hyped NA team of all time. They won what, 2 events maybe? SK, who ended up winning, were the best CS team to have ever been. They dominated 2002-2004 and had a bad year in 2005, but then ended up winning CPL winter after that and everyone was like "Complexity blew it, blah blah blah." THEY were your over hyped NA team. Nobody every said JMC was going to be great, or even hyped them up to be so. They just did amazing at that tournament. Credit is deserved. This video still gets me pumped.
