About[edit]

The Chinese event upped the duration from 2008 and lasted a week and a half.

This event was marked with stand-ins ruling the day, harkening back to the first WEG season somewhat. fnatic had been the team of the year, winning almost everything, but they came to the event minus third star Gux. In his place was former H2k leader threat. It mattered little though, as fnatic won the tournament outright. Their semi-final win over AGAiN was their toughest test of the tournament.

The Swede's finals opponent were a surprise, as the Finns of Power-Gaming had come in without leader natu, instead using contE, reuniting a lineup from 2008. A group stage win on train over fnatic allowed them the easier semi-final, beating TyLoo to secure a top two spot. The Poles of AGAiN had to leave TaZ at home and used new player pasha as a stand-in. As it would happen he would become a permanent fixture in the team next year, and they would remove LUq to make room for him.
