Weibo Gaming is a Chinese organization, which acquired Suning on November 22nd, 2021. [1]

History[edit]

Entry into LoL and Worlds debut (2021-2022)[edit]

Weibo Gaming made their entrance into League of Legends by acquiring Suning, taking over both their team as well as their slot in the LPL. [2] They however soon ended up making changes to the roster ahead of their debut in the Demacia Cup, parting ways with the coaching staff, but also bringing in former Invictus Gaming Kang "TheShy" Seung-lok — who however didn't see a start at the Demacia Cup as Weibo instead fielded Decade — and former TSM support Hu "SwordArT" Shuo-chieh. Their first tournament would however be a short one, as the team failed to make it past the group stages.

Their entrance into the LPL seemed to bring a promising start, as they'd start a winning streak in their first weeks, which only came to a stop by the 7th week, which by then had already secured their spot in the playoffs. After that week the team ended up losing momentum, dropping from 1st to 6th. Meaning Weibo only got one seed ahead in the bracket. Beating EDward Gaming succesfully, they lost to JD Gaming 2-3, ending their run early in the playoffs as they'd not get a chance to play the lower bracket.

The following run in the summer season brought the same results, having made no roster changes, the team once again finished their regular season in 6th, but falling short in the playoffs again as they lost to LNG Esports. Having secured little championship points in both splits, Weibo also missed out on the regional finals, leaving no more chances to qualify for Worlds.

Rebuilding and a Run to Worlds (2023)[edit]

Ahead of their second year in the LPL, Weibo looked to rebuild their roster. Parting ways with a majority of their starting players and coaching staff. And instead bringing in veterans such as Li "Xiaohu" Yuanhao and Hung "Karsa" Hau-hsuan alongside a new botlane duo in Liu "Crisp" Qingsong and Wang "Light" Guangyu. This new roster would however not see the light of day just yet, as the team skipped attending the Demacia due to multiple players contracting COVID-19. [3] Instead they'd first make their debut at the 2022 Weibo Cup. Initially facing Oh My God in the playoffs, after their reverse sweep they'd make a dominant run through the rest of the tournament. Securing their first ever title.

Carrying this momentum, they'd make a strong regular season run in spring of 2023, putting them in a 4th place. This success however was short lived, as in the playoffs they'd get sweeped 3-0 by Bilibili Gaming. With Summer approaching they'd make a new change to the team by picking up Wei "Weiwei" Bohan as their jungler, benching Karsa. The team however continued their trend, and again finish in 6th place during the regular season. They ended up facing Ninjas in Pyjamas and with securing a win against them, netted enough points to qualify for the regional finals despite losing against LNG Esports.

As the 6th ranked team, Weibo made their start in the lower bracket at the regional finals and managed to secure victories over Top Esports and EDward Gaming to make their debut into to 2023 World Championship.
