Counter-Logic Gaming is an esports organisation founded in 2010, initially as a League of Legends team. Over its history it’s had enough success to branch out into various other games (as well as being acquired in 2017 by MSG Sports, a major US sports holding company), and currently fields teams and players in Fortnite, Super Smash Bros, CS:GO, Valorant and Apex Legends.
But it’s the League of Legends team that’s making headlines for all the wrong reasons—and through no fault of their own. Following recent results, including a 2-1 loss, CLG posted a video to its official channels showing the team being chewed-out by manager Daniel ‘Tafo’ Lee, and telling the team that basically changes are incoming, this ‘might be the last time we have this roster of five playing’, and then rather unbelievably cutting to an advert for Bud Light.
The video has since been removed, though esports maven Jake Lucky has (unluckily for CLG) saved it.
