CyberGamer & LPL Today
In late 2018, LPL acquired Australian online esports tournament platform CyberGamer.com, founded by Jeremy "Asterix" Klaosen and James "[email protected]!" Burroughs in 2007. Originally, the goal of CyberGamer was to create a home for the Call of Duty community in Australia by supplying leagues, ladders and forums. As members of the community had gaming interests outside of the Call of Duty series also, CyberGamer began supporting a variety of games. Post-acquisition LPL strives to build upon the strong foundation laid by CyberGamer, keeping on top of the gaming scene by continuing to add new support for exciting upcoming titles while maintaining quality support for long-running titles.


The LPL community is currently 385,000 members strong!
