LGD gaming is known as one of China's top Dota 2 teams and has recently earned 3rd place in the 2012 International. Even more recently, rumors have been circulating about the possibility of the Dota 2 franchise expanding by establishing an international team. It turns out that the players we have been seeing with "LGD.int" team tags were indicative of something exciting coming to fruition; 1437 has publicly confirmed the formation of the new team on his twitter: "Alright guys... so i guess its all out. The rumours are true. LGD int is happening and I will be a part of it!"
The birth of a new high-profile team is an interesting enough development, but this team will draw from some of best teams from around the world and bring them together into one intimidating roster.

The formation of LGD.int will bring about changes in the professional Dota 2 scene, not just by being a new force to be reckoned with, but also by bringing about changes in the rosters of teams that will be losing players to it. We are currently unaware of the roles, playstyle, or organization of LGD.int, but this information, as well as that concerning the changes of other teams, will soon be brought to light. For now, we must simply revel in the joy of a shiny new team!
