Counter Logic Gaming

Counter Logic Gaming was the first major League of Legends team in North America. They burst into the scene by taking first in the 2010 World Cyber Games representing North America and have undergone only a couple roster changes since then. They’re the oldest and most veteran team out there and still one of the elite North American teams.

Their favorite strategy, and the one they mastered, is the poke comp. With Nidalee top and other long range attackers like Twisted Fate, Caitlyn or Corki throwing damage spells at the enemy and strong dis-engagers like Trundle they chip away at the opponents health until they are easily to beat in a team-fight.
