2018 was a big year for LPL and China's eSports. Back in 2018, team China won the gold to South Korea in a 3:1 match in the 2018 Asian Games. Shortly after, IG managed to win the 2018 Fnatic 3:0 in the Finals on November 3rd.
In 2019 IG performed solidly throughout Spring. As expected, they defeated JDG 3:0 and won the 2019 LPL Spring Playoffs. With IG winning their very first LPL trophy, they will compete in the Mid-season Invitational (MSI) main event against top teams from all over the world. We, as LPL fans, hope IG will continue advancing in MSI and make their dreams come true.
