Team SoloMid was the second major North American team to emerge and for a long time were the main rivals to Counter Logic Gaming. Like CLG, many of their players became famous quickly and are still well known. In October 2011 they moved into the first LoL gaming house in North America, moving all of their team members to New York state.
They were one of the first teams to start building Wriggle’s Lantern on everyone, partly because it’s a good item against physical and partly for the massive dragon and baron control multiple Wriggle’s gave. Lately SoloMid has really pushed their double wall strategy of using Karthus and Trundle to protect strong carries.
