Lightning Pandas is an English team.



Lightning Pandas is a team which was formed and captained by ShAnE after he left Epsilon Esports. They are well known for their particularly colourful branding, their main feature being multi-coloured tie die and the classic Lightning Pandas logo. When first formed the team saw little success until qualifying for the 2014 Call of Duty Championship through the Russian Qualifiers, where they eventually placed 17th. After qualifiers, the team parted ways leaving ShAnE looking for 3 new players. At a similar time, TYT eSports, a team formed by 4 YouTubers, which because of this had a large fanbase, had dropped Insomulus from their roster and were looking for a 4th, so the teams merged, originally creating TYT.LP, a team owned by the previous owner of TYT eSports, FearCrads, but captained by ShAnE due to his extensive experience in eSports. This team then decided that the Lightning Pandas brand was so strong that it was worth dropping the TYT name all together. This team has shown great success in the EU scene, not yet placing particularly well at an EU LAN event, but have been preforming well online, being invited both to the Gfinity Ghosts Pro League S1 and to the EGL StarSeries, placing mid-table in both, even with the strong opposition they had. From the 20th-22 June, the team preformed at their first international event, MLG Anaheim in the Open Bracket, they managed to place top 20, out placing Strictly Business, a team which many people thought may place top 4, and secure a spot in MLG Season 3. On the 6th of July the team qualified for a spot in the 4 team Gfinity LAN event, the winner of which will secure a spot in Gfinity 3.
