Gaming organization Diglife acquires new Counter-Strike team
Gaming organization Diglife acquired what was called a “significant stake” in Copenhagen Wolves in December. The company already held a similar stake in the Ninjas in Pyjamas organization. Now its portfolio includes Let the Game Begin Esports.
LGB Esports followed that announcement by acquiring a new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team.
The new players hail from Norway and are led by Ruben “Rubino” Vallarroel and Havard “Rain” Nygaard. The pair were recently in the news when they formed the base of a new London Conspiracy Counter-Strike team, joined by a trio of their countrymen.
Shortly after that move, those players decided to flee the London Conspiracy organization to join LGB Esports and take advantage of its fresh backing by Diglife.
LGB Esports are no strangers to the Counter-Strike scene. The organization once hosted a number of Swedish players who now make up the current Fnatic roster that has staked a firm claim as being among the world’s best.
Their new Norwegian team is largely unproven, having scarcely competed since they were recomposed.
The move means that Diglife now backs three high profile Counter-Strike teams in Europe. Questions of a conflict of interest will only continue in lieu of this latest move.
Meanwhile, London Conspiracy has promised to remain in the Counter-Strike scene, offering that it's already looking into a number of options for potential team sponsorships.
