Here come the big boys.

LGD Gaming, one of the biggest names in Electronic Sports, and a Chinese powerhouse Esports club have just unveiled that they are collaborating with a Philippine-based company to help further promote and develop Electronic Sports in the region. In a deal that was publicly finalized and signed yesterday, November 26, 2019, LGD, together with Esports Play Gaming, will be looking to “scout, train and coach core players from the Philippines and Southeast Asia”, with aims to produce world-class Esports athletes for Dota 2.

LGD Gaming’s Legacy

LGD Gaming has its roots traced back in 2009 with their first Esports discipline being Defense of the Ancients, which was highly popular at that time, before venturing into other titles such as League of Legends, Overwatch, and PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS. Celebrating varying degrees of success and seeing tremendous growth over the past decade, the brand grew into a powerhouse of Chinese Esports and has moved from just housing teams to organizing its own tournaments and developing new gaming and Esports related IPs. Just last year, it was reported that LGD Gaming was part of the Hangzhou Esports Town, a multi-million dollar Esports complex that houses the home venue of LGD Gaming’s LPL (League of Legends Pro League) team.

LGD.int and other plans

As the key focus is on developing a new team, LGD Gaming and Esports Play Gaming’s collaboration will center around LGD.int (LGD International), a previously established brand that is LGD Gaming’s all-foreign or non-Chinese contingent for major Esports events. LGD.int was first established back in 2012 with members that include TI finalist Rasmus “MiSeRy” Filipsen. Aside from developing and housing teams, bigger plans could be expected from LGD Gaming and Esports Play Gaming’s new venture as LGD Gaming has also revealed that they are eyeing on creating training houses and gaming arenas with 2 initial locations being selected; Pampanga and Cebu.
