Counter Logic Gaming is an North American eSports organization that was founded in April 2010 by George Goeorgallidas. "HotShotGG", in addition to having formed his own team, has a European counter part called "CLG EU."
In addition to being the eldest lasting League of Legends team that is still relevant, CLG also won 1st place at WCG 2010, being the first major tournament victor on a wide scale. CLG was the first to answer the call to Korea and train in Korea, where they learned a lot and had a big lead on the teams.
This isn't the only point in time where they'd have a gigantic lead, though, as when LoL progaming originated, Counter Logic Gaming's skill level and teamwork was so far ahead of that of competitors that the most efficient tactic was to not practice against any other teams so they couldn't catch up or learn from them. This strategy wouldn't last for long as others would quickly be on par or surpass CLG Prime.
Though arguably a contender for the #1 team in North America, the constant roster changes leave the team inconsistent and hoping to find a steady roster to maintain a high skill cap and keep up with the Korean teams once again.
