CLG.eu are the Kings of Europe!

After less than one month of joining the Counter Logic Family, CLG.eu has already shown their overwhelming dominance in the League of Legends competitive scene. Now the newly crowned Kings of Europe in the tournament hosted by OGaming.tv, CLG.eu fought against top tier European teams- ultimately, dethroning IEM Kiev winners, Moscow 5. We will be posting links to the replays for those who missed out on the intense finals matches in this thread and on our Facebook pages, CounterLogicGaming and CLGaming.eu.

When asked what the team thought went wrong/right in the winning match, support player Krepo stated "the key point was DISENGAGING" especially in situations after Karthus deaths. They believe this to be the essential key to their victories because it allowed them to avoid Karthus walls and his passive during team fights. "Use all CC, kill one with it, reset fight."

The series itself was one of the most entertaining in recent League of Legends history as it could have been anyone's claim to victory. However, despite a huge comeback from M5 in both games 2 and 3, the team showed their mental stability and teamwork by defending against the impeccably coordinated Russian team.

In regards to giving advice on how teams can defend against comebacks like the one that M5 nearly executed, CLG.eu jungler Snoopeh stated, "It's a team game, stay calm."

We are very proud of our European division and we hope that you all join us in congratulating them!

That is really a great accomplishment for clg.eu.
The global level of that tournament has been, i daresay, much higher than the average level showed at Kiev, thus the show was very promissing and I think that this tournament was really worth watching.

Froggen has showed that he was prolly one of the most skilled ap atm, never losing his lane and performing incredibly well.
CLG.eu has definitly something to show, only one compalin...

THEY WON'T BE AT THE GRAND FINAL.
That is just so so sad.

I loved the third game. So close and exciting. I heard it was better than Dreamhack. I hope we can continue this level of competitive gameplay and the great support of the community. ◕‿‿◕

Yea CLG EU are easily one of the best teams in EU along with Mistral and M5. I saw all 3 of the matches and every player on CLG EU performed very well. Snoopeh was phenomenal with such timed ganks and early oracle. Well done!
