LGD Gaming is celebrating today, the 9th of December 2019, its 10 years anniversary. It all started back in 2009 when LGD founded their organization and created the first DotA team.
They’ve been a dominant force in the esports space ever since. LGD currently hosts teams in Dota2, League of Legends, Overwatch, PUBG, Clash Royale, Honor of Kings and CrossFire. In 2018, their Dota 2 division partnered with the giant European football club Paris Saint-Germain and announced a new logo.
During the festivities held today at their arena in Hangzhou, China, LGD Gaming announced a new rebrand for the company and introduced a new logo for the organization.
Players from all their esports disciplines attended today the 10th years Anniversary Celebration event, including some of the Dota 2 legends that crossed paths with LGD over the years and have been a part of the LGD legacy.
LGD’s Gaming Dota 2 division became extremely popular worldwide and hosted multiple teams over the years. They missed the very first International back in 2011, but since TI2 to present days, the LGD organization has always been on the TI stage and can be regarded as the most successful Chinese team.
From eight The Internationals which they attended, LGD placed top six at six different editions. For the past three years, from TI7 to TI9, LGD were top three, making a historical achievement for the Chinese region.
