Esports magnate Counter Logic Gaming joins the Overwatch scene by signing free agent team The 1 Percent into their roster. The announcement was made live by CLG’s CEO Devin Nash during the first day of MLG Las Vegas 2016. The six players, Bryan “iShiny” McCarthy, Nathan “Miso” Lui, Michael “The” Kuhns, Adam “Waffletastic” Sydner, Joao “Hydration” Pedro Goes Telles and Daniel “Mikado” Yamilkoski were introduced on stage sporting their new organization’s jerseys.
“This is the first time that CLG has entered a new IP in over a year,” said Nash.
While the announcement was made during MLG Las Vegas, CLG will not compete in this tournament.
“The team was chosen due to exhibiting the talent, hard work and intelligent analysis that CLG prides itself upon,” said Nash. “We are proud to have them on board.”
