Invictus Gaming (iG) is a Chinese multi-platform e-sports organization.

History

In August 2011, Invictus Gaming was formed by Wang Sicong, the son of the 11th richest Chinese man, Wang Jianlin, aiming to reassemble electronic sports in China.[1] In the next few days, CCM was purchased by iG for a fee of $6,000,000.[2] iG.Z participated in The International 2011. xiao8 and ddc left iG.Z after The International 2011 and were replaced by Awoke and Faith, in the first ever official transfer in Chinese e-sports.[3]

iG acquired their second DotA team in a controversial manner, in which they signed 4 players from LGD.[4] Sharingan transferred from PanDa after a controversial blocking of Lanm's transfer by EHOME.

In November 2011, iG decided to merge 2 teams into 1 and drop 5 players.

In August 2012, iG won The International 2012, defeating reigning champions Natus Vincere 3-1 in the Grand Final.

In September 2013, Zhou was traded to TongFu in exchange for Hao.[5][6] Later that month, Banana also joined the team, and ChuaN was removed.[7][8][9]

In February 2014, iG announced a six-man roster. Hao left the team for NewBee, while Luo and ChuaN joined.

In March 2014, Banana was transferred to NewBee.

In July 2014, after The International 2014, YYF announced his retirement from Dota 2.[10]

In August 2014, Faith leaves the squad to join LGD and is replaced with June and chisbug.[11]
