CLG Expands into Hearthstone

Counter Logic Gaming (CLG) is excited to announce its latest adventure in esports with the addition of CLG Hearthstone!

We would like to officially welcome our new members of the CLG family!

Xixo, Hoej, and Surrender are among the best Hearthstone players in the world. Xixo has been consistently ranked the #1 Hearthstone player on the GosuGamers ladder in the past year. He took first at StarSeries Season 2 last year and finished first in the European WESG qualifiers. He will be competing at WESG this weekend for the first time under CLG. Hoej won the Viagame House Cup #2 in 2015, placed 3rd in both Dreamhack Winter 2015 and Summer 2016, and placed 7th in StarSeries Season 2. Surrender won OGN Hearthstone Masters Season 2, placed second in Season 3, and 3rd in the OGN Hearthstone Seoul World Cup Invitational.

With this lineup we believe we have one of the strongest Hearthstone rosters in esports. They fit right into the CLG culture as hard working players that love to have fun while playing.  They came together as a team from their previous organization and even dyed their hair in solidarity! 2017 is going to be a fun year for CLG and we are happy to kickstart the year with the addition of new members to the CLG family.

Please give a warm welcome to Xixo, Hoej, and Surrender! Make sure to follow them on social media and say hello!

Meet CLG Hearthstone


"After talking to a lot of esport organizations it's been clear pretty fast that CLG was the best fit. I'm super excited to keep working with my teammates Surrender and Hoej and join the CLG family. CLG provides us everything we need to practice the best we can and I'm convinced that by the end of the year we can eliminate any doubts regarding us being the best Hearthstone squad in the world."

"Haha no, not going to happen. I play to win."


"First of all I am overly excited to be a part of CLG as it seems like a great organization and like a big family. Second, I'm really happy that I am still able to play together with my old teammates Xixo and Surrender. Finally, I still need to convince my budgie Pidgey to color her 'hair' blue."

"CLG has always been my favorite NA team since they started with their first LoL squad, and now I'm really excited to join team CLG. Now it reminds me of my teenage dream - being a professional gamer like SC & LoL players!"
