On April 25th, 2014, LGD Gaming announced that they would form a youth team called LGD.CDEC. They were named CDEC after the 'Chinese Dota Elite Community', an in-house league and the team largely consisted of young talent from that league. In October 2014, LGD.CDEC left the LGD Gaming brand to establish a separate brand called CDEC Gaming, with the roster of Agressif, Maybe, 333, Garder and Q. CDEC showed promising signs of talent (especially Maybe, the team's mid player); however, following a disappointing 4th place finish at the LAN finals of D2L Season 5, 333 left the team. He was temporarily replaced by the team's coach, former TyLoo and Vici Gaming player mikasa. CDEC was passed over for a direct invite to the DAC 2015 and instead had to fight their way through the Asian Qualifiers where they came in second place. Despite their earlier promising results, they fared quite poorly at the group stage at DAC, where they were eliminated after placing 14th. Following DAC, the Chinese scene underwent a period of roster shuffles which resulted in mikasa leaving to coach LGD Gaming and up-and-coming mid player Maybe also leaving to play for LGD. The team soon added Shiki and Xz to complete their roster. In May of 2015, CDEC were invited to play in the TI5 Chinese Qualifiers. Despite not losing a single match in their group, CDEC failed to qualify directly to TI5 and instead were forced to go through the Wild Card. CDEC managed to defeat Vega Squadron and MVP Phoenix in order to secure one of the two wild-card slots in the main event. During the group stage CDEC managed to surprise practically everyone as they fought their way to second place in their group, behind eventual champions Evil Geniuses. Despite their performance in their group, CDEC still came in as underdogs in the upper bracket; however, they shocked the world with their dominance on the main stage. CDEC roared through the upper bracket without dropping a single game in any of the 3 series they played, which secured their place in the grand finals. In the grand finals CDEC faced Evil Geniuses; however, even though they had just beaten EG 2-0 in their previous series, CDEC were unable to claim victory as they lost the grand finals 1-3.
