WCG 2019 Xi’an presented not just an esports tournament but also the vision of future esports – New Horizons, knowledge sharing, practice forums – Conference, world-class electronic music festival, and cosplay contests, creating an event that everyone could participate in, and setting a brand new model of a global esports festival.
In the game sports tournament, China won four gold medals in Warcraft III, Crossfire, Honor of Kings, and DOTA2 to become the grand champions.
WCG conveys the value of “participation” and “future” to millennials with various content. Not only professional players, but also amateur players can challenge and become champions through competition while creating friendships and happy memories.
