For iG, the growth of the club and the owner Wang Sicong are inseparable. The manager of EWBEE once said that the early development of Chinas e-Competition was a group of rich second generation who raised several professional players to blackboard with themselves. It is not professional at all. But in these rich second generation, Wang Sicong really took e-Competition as a business. In 2011, Wang Sicong and his father, Wang Jianlin, invested 500 million yuan in their hobbies and began to lay out their hobbies slowly.
Therefore, in the days when professional athletes generally have poor income and only 1500 yuan monthly salary, Wang Sicong wins a game by waving a big hand and awarding 20,000 yuan to each player. In 2012, Wang Sicong launched the China Electronic Sports Club Alliance (ACE Alliance). It is this alliance that regulates the registration of professional league teams and the transfer of players, which makes the most important step towards the professionalization of Chinas e-sports.
Among many of Wang Sicongs projects related to electronic competition, IG is his starting point and his initial intention. Wang Sicong is not the most dedicated to IG. All-star voters IG players are no match for other teams, President Wang fired directly on Weibo: IG will not participate in the future, crazy to vote for your compatriots; IG singles rookie said that want to see Lin Junjies concert, Wang Sicong did not say that Lin Junjie gave his concert tickets flashed to the battle team; Wang Sicong appeared on LP. After winning the game, Wang Sicong pitched 400,000 Invitational teams for dinner; 430 members of IGDOTA Division played six TI sessions in IG. Tibetan horse and Wang Sicong, IG manager, proposed that Wang Sicong rent him a Ferrari as his wedding car. Unexpectedly, Wang Sicong said, If he gets married during IG, Ill send him a Ferrari. Wang Sicong also promised players that if they could get the S8 championship, each person would reward 1 million.

Everyone is working hard! Many fans also warmed up and commented: thank you, Mr. Wang for training the best IG, never giving up. Source: NetEase sports editor: Liu Jie _NS6529
