The former LC players have reformed under a new team called Golden Boys, but they have moved on without their captain, Giorgos "SsaSpartan" Giannokopoulos. Replacing him is Verros "Maybe Next Time" Apostolos.

Golden Boys full roster looks as follows:

  • Greg "Keyser Soze" Kallianiotis
  • Omar "Madara" Dabasas
  • Xaris "SkyLark" Zafiriou
  • Verros "Maybe Next Time" Apostolos
  • Giannis "SKANKS224" Theodoridis

The team has won a good number of minor cups and tournaments in Europe, but their most memorable achievement was when they eliminated Evil Geniuses at MLG Pro League Season 2. They were knocked into the third place match by Ninjas in Pyjamas, then defeated by Fnatic, but their fourth place finish there was also their largest pot. They took home $16,000.

Their consistency and upsets earned them an invite to the European qualifier for The International 5, but they didn't make it past the group stage.

Although London Conspiracy have now parted ways with their all-Greek Dota 2 squad, the organization have stated that "we are extremely interested in continuing to support the DotA2 scene and are currently on the hunt for a new team."
