World Cyber Games
The World Cyber Games (WCG) is an international competitive video-gaming (e-sports) event operated by South Korean company World Cyber Games Inc., and sponsored by Samsung and Microsoft. WCG events attempt to emulate a traditional sporting tournament, such as the Olympic Games; events include an official opening ceremony, and players from various countries compete for gold, silver and bronze medals. The official motto of WCG is "Beyond the Game", which is also the title of a documentary about e-sports.
As of 2011, the World Cyber Games is the largest global electronic sport tournament, with divisions in various countries. The World Cyber Games, created by International Cyber Marketing CEO Hank Jeong and backed financially by Samsung, is considered the e-sports Olympics; events include an official opening ceremony, and players from various countries compete for gold, silver and bronze medals. The organization itself has an official mascot, and uses an Olympic Games inspired logo. Organizations from each participating country conduct preliminary events at a regional level, before conducting national finals to determine the players best suited to represent them in the main World Cyber Games tournament event. All events have areas for spectators, but the tournament can also be viewed over internet video streams.
From 2002 to 2013, the World Cyber Games was the most prestigious world championship for Warcraft III.
