There has always been a divide between gaming cultures in the West (Europe and the U.S.) and the East (Korea, Japan, and China). With the gaming world’s biggest tournaments right around the corner- Dota 2’s The International ends on August 26th and features an over $30 million prize pool and League of Legend’s World Championship attracts over 100 million viewers- gamers around the world are preparing their best tactics and skills to win. 

With a population of over 1 billion, China is a global powerhouse in the esports scene. Here are some of China's most notable and recognizable franchises in Esports. Only time will tell if they take home a championship. 

  1. 1 Invictus Gaming (IG)


    Invictus Gaming (IG) is perhaps the most recognizable name in Chinese Esports;  IG has 14 teams in divisions in eight games. The franchise began as Catastrophic Cruel Memory (CCM). Later it was bought by Wang Si-Cong, the son of China's third-richest man- Dalian Wanda Group Chairman Wang Jianlin, for $6 million and rebranded as Invictus Gaming.

    The first major victory for the organization was winning Dota 2’s The International 2012 and taking home $1 million- a prize amount nearly unheard of at the time. Since then, the organization and its players have earned countless first place titles in a variety of games, such as Dota 2, League of Legends, StarCraft and Hearthstone. 

    Their latest and greatest achievement yet- winning the 2018 League of Legends World Championship. They are the first-ever Chinese Esports team to do so.

    Currently, the organization is expected to repeat its success in the League of Legends World Championship and compete in the Dota 2 The International.
