The journey of LGD Gaming in 2023
LGD Gaming started the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2023 season still under the banner of the French football team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). After The International 2022, only NothingToSay stayed in the team and the team started fresh with four new members.
The team did well in the Chinese scene, getting 1st place in the first and third DPC tour. It fell to Xtreme Gaming in Tour 2, earning themselves a respectable second place.
Despite qualifying convincingly for the Dota 2 Majors, the team did not perform as well. LGD Gaming ended up in 9th-12th place in both Lima Major and Berlin Major. It did better in the Bali Major, placing 5th-6th place.
With its consistent performance in its region, PSG.LGD managed to lock their invitation to The International 2023 held in Seattle, USA. The team parted ways with PSG and they reverted back to LGD Gaming before TI12.
The team managed to stay on top of their group, which was made possible with a convincing fight against the favorite team of the season, Gaimin Gladiators. In the playoffs, LGD Gaming took down 9Pandas and fellow Chinese team Azure Ray in the Upper Bracket. However, it was knocked down to the lower bracket by Team Spirit. LGD Gaming once again faced Gaimin Gladiators and this time, the Gladiators went hard and left LGD Gaming with no chance of making it to the finals.
Despite the team's ups and downs this year, LGD Gaming won 3rd place in The International 2023, showing them to still be one of the greatest Dota 2 teams in the scene.
The new LGD Gaming roster will be competing in the upcoming ESL One Kuala Lumpur. You can check out more info about the tournament below.
