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.
