PSG.LGD — a leader in the Dota 2 world
Dota 2 is one of the most widely spread video games all around the globe.
Previously, it was believed that computer games are a great alternative to leisure time and a good hobby. Today everything has changed. Esports has become a real and completely independent industry, in which this game is a special discipline. If you are a fan of it, you have surely heard about PSG.LGD at least once.
But what is it? Who is part of it? What are the squad’s achievements? Let’s deal with everything step by step.
The origin or how it was created
PSG.LGD is a professional Dota 2 team from China. Firstly it was created in 2009 with the name LGD Dota 2 division, but exactly in 2018 as a result of a partnership between Paris Saint Germain Esports (a famous football club called Paris Saint Germain) and LGD Gaming (a prominent Chinese gaming company) the squad we know today was born.
The first roster was the ForTheDream squad. The club switched to this game in 2012: after a brief training in the new game and a successful conclusion of the season, it received an invitation to The International 2012, where it placed third.
The line-up is still remembered by former fans of the team but changed after an unsuccessful result at The International 2013.
The new sponsor is aimed to develop the club in the Asian market and conquer the world industry, so Paris Saint Germain is pioneering again by becoming the first major European club to invest in the scene in China.
Soon after the creation of PSG.LGD the players achieved enormous results. In May 2018 the squad won their first international championship at Major in Russia. The instant success was achieved by winning the next Major in China of the 2017-2018 Dota Pro Circuit, which helped players earn a direct invitation to The International 2018 and then to win second place there (after the OG squad).

Due to other unsatisfactory results, the squad was overcome by painful reorganizations that resulted in Somnus being promoted to the main squad. Gaining critical mass by winning the third season of the i-League and the 2015 G-League, the boys excelled at The International 2015 finishing third and earning over two million dollars.
At the end of 2017, Bowl and C.M. joined Team MAX and CDEC Gaming to take up the off leader and curry positions respectively. This forced fy to return to his support duties and Ame to become inactive. But it didn’t work out and there were more changes.
Later Sea Mew returned to CDEC Gaming and Ame took his place when Yao was moved to Forever Young and xNova joined as support. After the announcement of a partnership with Paris Saint-Germain, one of China’s strongest teams, marking the first time such a major European football club has crossed regions and entered the scene.
