H1Z1 Fight for the Crown Official Roster
Counter Logic Gaming announced one week ago that it will be competing in the H1Z1: Fight for the Crown tournament. The tournament will feature 15 teams competing for a $300,000 prize pool. It will all come down to one match with five of our players competing against 70 others. We scouted out the best available H1Z1 talent over the past few weeks and formed what we believe will be one of the strongest rosters in the tournament. Today, we are proud to announce our official Fight for the Crown roster of Flamehopper, Grimmybear, Nightwalker1H, dafps, and CaLLzyy!
"I am very excited for CLG to participate in H1Z1: Fight for the Crown! Our roster is full of great talent and people who I know the CLG community will be excited to support. The team is currently putting in long hours in preparation to take home the crown."
- Matt "Trinitiii" Nausha, Director of Esports
The players will be bootcamping at the CLG compound in Los Angeles in the days leading up to the tournament. They will have access to our facilities including iBUYPOWER PCs, CORSAIR peripherals, the ability to scrim in a LAN environment, and meals provided by our full-time chef. We cannot wait to see them compete in what will be an adrenaline pumping match that will be broadcasted on April 20th, 2017 on The CW Network. In the mean time, our players will be scrimming and streaming their games so check them out and throw your support behind them!

He is excited to represent CLG in the Fight for the Crown tournament with his team and looks forward to seeing how the competitive scene of H1Z1 unfolds. He loves building positive communities around gaming and is know in the H1Z1 scene as an absurdly nice guy who's surprisingly good at the game.
An H1Z1 streamer for Counter Logic Gaming, Aaron "Grimmybear" Worrell, should be no stranger for CLG fans. A former competitive Counter Strike player, Grimmybear has put in 3,000 hours into H1Z1. He has gotten 8th place in the 2015 H1Z1 Invitational and is a Gold AR-15 winner.
Another former competitive Counter Strike player, Daniel "Nightwalker1H" Justiniano, has spent over 3,500 hours in H1Z1 and has had ranked #1 in kills in Champions Arena. He played Counter Strike 1.5 and 1.6 for over 13 years and has won multiple LANs in Florida.
Damien "dafps" Adams comes from a strong backround in competitive games. He followed the CS scene up until CS:GO where he has over 3,500 competitive hours. Since then he has achieved Top 15 NA (Season 1), Royalty 2 with only 12 wins and is currently grinding his way up the leaderboard for Pre-season 3. Dafps is excited to compete under the CLG banner and strives to improve with his team.
Justin "CaLLzyy" Collier is an H1Z1 veteran with over 4000 hours. He has played in Champions Arena, Grind Royale, and held top kills in the monthly H1Z1 leaderboards. CaLLzyy is a great proponent of teamwork and believes that no one player is greater then the team: you win together, lose together, and fight together. He is looking forward to being offically representing CLG for the upcoming tournament and hopefully many future events to come.
