Counter Logic Gaming is one of the best-known esports organizations in North America, and they have been dominating the scene all the way up to the Halo World Championship. After dropping OGRE2 and picking up Lethul, many thought that the team had made a mistake. Especially after losing to Lethul's former team Evil Geniuses at the X Games in Aspen. However, at the Halo World Championship Tour: Columbus, CLG went undefeated, securing their spot as the #1 North American seed at the Championship.
