LGD Gaming is a professional e Sports organization based in China, with teams competing in Dota 2 and League of Legends.
The team is named after the team's main sponsor, Guizhou Laogandie Food.
It is a worldwide phenomenon which is only going to continue to grow in size.
Hitting a slump when they first started, they have since earned their place in the Chinese Dota 2 scene, and are currently the top team in our Gosu Rankings. Alder Team New Bee is one of the youngest teams in the Chinese Dota 2 scene, and yet one of the strongest.
Famously formed from the backbone of Tong Fu, a team which played extremely well during The International 2013, coming in fourth position during that tournament.
In total, there have been more than 100 gamers to have made over $100,000 in prize money. Most of these gamers also pick up sizeable cheques in sponsorship and further income from streaming their practice games on services such as Twitch.

Harking from an era of bygone teams like Nirvana, KS.cm, EHOME, and Deity, it was founded by 2009, sponsored by LGD, starred by YYF and ZSMJ, succeeded by xiao8 and Sylar, and now features faces of a new generation, Rabbit and Lin. LGD was originally founded as FTD, For the Dream, and perhaps just like chasing dreams in reality, the journey has been everything but an easy walkover.
As the oldest team at this International, LGD has ingrained itself so deeply upon the Dota landscape, ever defining the highest levels of Dot A even as they played perennial second violin to stronger, more dominating teams. It has always been about surviving, struggling, and fighting since its humble origins in 2009 (the year) and with 2009 (the player).
After TI3, it was Yao 'Zhou' Chen's retirement that sent the team packing: without his carry skills and synergy, the team simply fell apart.
