History
CreatedLoL Division Template:Date of creation

Team WE is the first ever Esports club that is based in China. The organization formed their first professional League of Legends team in March 2011. They initially gained recognition for their Warcraft 3 division, but the team also sponsors players and teams in various titles, such as DotA and Starcraft II

History

Team WE, formerly known as World Elite, is considered as one of the pioneering esports organization in China (Shanghai). Originally, the team was mainly focused on Warcraft, housing renowned players like Li "Sky" Xiaofeng, a legendary human-main known as the "Human Emperor".

2011

The formation of their League of Legends team was announced in March of 2011.[1] The lineup was quick to achieve success in various major tournaments, such as IEM 6 Guangzhou where they finished 1st, and finished 1st as well in LoL Pro League Tencent Games Carnival. [2][3] The team, however, lost to Invictus Gaming during the Chinese national finals for World Cyber Games. [4] After finishing first at Guangzhou, the team managed to secure a spot for IEM 6 World Championship. Unfortunately, due to visa issues, the team were unable to attend the event.[5]

2012

Team WE also qualified for IPL 5 and World Championship in May of 2012. An invite was also sent to the team for Azubu The Champions 2012 Summer, which was their first challenge against non-Chinese opponents since Guangzhou. However the team only finished at 8th place during the vent, as they lost to CLG EU (0-2) in the quarterfinals.[6] Expectations were high for the team as well when they attended IPL Face Off: San Francisco Showdown in August, but the team underperformed again and ended at 5th-6th, losing in Team Legion and Curse Gaming. Due to these disappointing results, YJTM and if left the team and were replaced by ClearLove and Fzzf.

At Worlds in October, the team earned a bye through groups. Following a random drawing, Team WE as placed against CLG EU in the quarterfinals. However, due to technical issues, the rematch of Azubu Summer was rescheduled. The postponed matched ended with Team WE losing to CLG EU and ending the tournament at 5th-8th with a $75,000 prize.

Team WE won the Chinese Online Qualifier for IPL 5 and traveled to Las Vegas to go against fifteen other teams for the $ 100,000 prize pool. During the group stage, the team placed first in their group after winning over Fnatic and Azubu Blaze. In the winner's bracket, WE defeated Moscow Five (2-0), CLG EU (2-0), and won over Fnatic (2-1). They faced Fnatic, for the third time, in the Finals where they took home the trophy with a 3-1 victory against the latter.

2013

WE's first major tournament for 2013 was the 2nd season of GIGABYTE StarsWar League where they trampled the group stage by winning all best of 2 sets with the exception of Invictus Gaming, which was considered as their biggest rival at that time, as their match ended in a draw. Much like IPL 5, the team managed to won most of bracket stage with an almost perfect record. They managed to win against Taipei Assassins (2-0), Invictus Gaming (3-1) in the semifinals and was posed to win over the entire tournament, just like what they did in almost every single event they played at. However, a slump hit some of the team's key members, such as Weixiao and this deterred the team's coordination and hugely affected their communication. Despite having a win advantage they still lost to Invictus Gaming (2-3) in the finals.

A week before the SWL, as well as the weeks that followed, Team WE continued to underperform and were defeated by OMG and Invictus Gaming. They even lost a game to Royal Club Huang Zu, barely holding at the top 3 spot. Despite their mediocre performance, We still managed to maintain their perfect record versus Positive Energy and even took a game from Invictus Gaming in Week 7 of LPL Spring.

Week 8, however, can be considered as hell week for the team, as they suffered their most devastating defeat after losing against Wings of Aurora. In day, they had a rough and slow game against Royal Club Huang Zu and only managed to win due to Weixiao's base race play.

Week 9 was said to be "the Week WE returned" according to their fans, as they barely lost to OMG, and dominated Positive Energy and Invictus Gaming with the latter again not banning Twisted Fate.

As LPL Spring is about to end with only one week left to play, Team WE had to prepare for their participation in NVIDIA Game Festival as well. They faced OMG in the semifinals and Royal Club Huang Zu in grand finals. At the end of the week, the team managed to snatch the first place in the tournament by winning over Royal Club Huang Zu (2-0) in their Bo3 series.

Despite everything the team went through during the split, they still managed to secure a spot in the playoffs. However, they were knocked out of the tournament after losing to Invictus Gaming (1-2) in the semifinals. They ended in 4th place and kept their spot in the LPL.

2015

WE was invited to take part in IEM 9 World Championship, as they finished 1st at IEM Shenzhen. this was the first event where Spirit, Mystic, Xiye, Aluka and YuZhe played together. The team lost against Team SoloMid in the opening of the event but they were able to beat Gambit Gaming in their match in the losers' braket. They also managed to pull an upset versus CJ Entus, taking the second spot behind TSM and securing their place in the semifinals. World Elite then stunned the League world by emerging victorious 2-1 in their semifinal against the GE Tigers. It was the very first time GE had been defeated in a series after winning each of their LCK matches to date (and losing only two games in the process, which World Elite equaled in that semifinal alone), leading many of the analysts to call it the biggest upset in League of Legends history. A rematch against TSM in the grand finals awaited them, and even though they lost 3-0 after nearly taking the first game, they took 2nd place and many new fans back to China.

2016

2016 competitive season for Team WE started with LPL Spring where they obtained a 10-6 win/loss record which granted them the second place in Group A of the competition. This podium placement made sure the team went through to the Playoffs where they finished 3rd after losing to Royal Never Give Up in the semi-finals and conquering Qiao Gu Reapers in the 3rd place match.

In July, they had a less desirable performance at the Demacia Cup where they ended up in the 5-8th place. Then, on August 8th, started LPL Summer. Placed on group B, Team WE managed to end the competition with the same result as the previous season: 10-6. That score got them to the Playoffs where they ended up beaten by I May (1-3) on the 3rd place match.

Then came the Regional Finals where they were, once again, defeated by I May and ended up not qualifying for the World Champioship.
