The most decorated women’s Counter-Strike team in history just found a new home. Counter Logic Gaming has signed the ex-UBINITED Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team, a squad that originally formed in 2002 as Girls Got Game and has dominated events for the fairer sex ever since.
The squad has six Electronic Sports World Cup titles and in Global Offensive has placed in the top three at multiple majors.

The team will shed Counter Logic Gaming’s traditional blue colors for red, playing under the CLG Red moniker when they debut at ESWC 2015 in Montreal on July 16.
“I’m so excited to be a part of CLG and can’t wait to see where we can take CLG Red,” team captain Christine “potter” Chi said in the announcement. “I’ve been a fan of CLG since I saw [CLG owner George “Hotshot” Georgallidis] throwing Nidalee spears on stream and could have never imagined I’d be a part of the family. It’s an exciting time for esports, but especially CS:GO and the dream is here baby. CLG FIGHTING!”
Stephanie “missharvey” Harvey put together a video blog discussing the team’s move to the new organization.
