After the closure of the World Cyber Games, WCG’s COO Bory Jun cooperated with Aegis Gaming Networks Inc.
and Global Mobile Game Confederation to establish WECG.
However, Brad Lee, former WCG’s CEO, worked with Yinchuan Municipal Government and Yinchuan International Game Investment Co.
Ltd (YIGI) bringing another large scale event to the world.
It thrived between the third and seventh centuries, and at its height was one of the most widespread religions in the world.
Manichaean churches and scriptures existed as far east as China and as far west as the Roman Empire.
It was briefly the main rival to Christianity in the competition to replace classical paganism.
Manichaeism survived longer in the east than in the west, and it appears to have finally faded away after the 14th century in southern China contemporary to the decline in China of the Church of the East during the Ming Dynasty.
Thus, both of the tournaments are aiming to fill the gap left by the closure of the WCG.
Unfortunately the structure of this tournament is not yet released and no information has been disclosed yet regarding which teams will be invited or eligible for participation.
Xiao8 would start off in the support role, until ZSMJ and King J were replaced by Banana and Sansheng, delegating the offlane to Xiao8.
