Team WE, the very first eSports club based in China, formed their first League of Legends team in March of 2011. Initially gaining recognition for their Warcraft 3 division, WE also sponsors players and teams for StarCraft II and DotA.
Team WE, once known simply as World Elite, is a pioneering esports organization based in Shanghai, China. They were originally a Warcraft 3 based team, housing many renown players such as Li "Sky" Xiaofeng, a legendary human-main dubbed as the "Human Emperor". The team turned 8 years old as of April 14, 2013. In 2011 Team WE created their first League of Legends team.
Team WE announced the formation of a League of Legends team in March 2011.  The newly formed lineup quickly achieved success in major tournaments, taking 1st in IEM Season VI - Global Challenge Guangzhou, 1st in the LoL Pro League, and 1st at Tencent Games Carnival 2011.  They fell to Invictus Gaming in the Chinese national finals for the 2011 World Cyber Games.  With a first place finish at Guangzhou, the team was ensured a slot for the IEM Season VI - World Championship, but due to visa complications, they were unable to attend.  WE qualified for IPL5 and the Season 2 World Championship in May 2012.
Team WE received an invite to Azubu The Champions Summer 2012, which would be their first test against non-Chinese teams since Guangzhou; they only managed to place in the top eight, losing 0-2 in the quarterfinals to CLG EU.  Expectations were high for WE at IPL Face Off: San Francisco Showdown in August, but they underperformed once again and finished just 5th-6th, losing in succession to Team Legion and Curse Gaming. These disappointing results led to the departures of YJTM and if, who were replaced by ClearLove and Fzzf.
At the Season 2 World Championship in October of 2012, Team WE was given a bye through the group stage. After a random drawing, they were placed against CLG EU in the round of eight, a rematch of their quarterfinal from Azubu The Champions Summer 2012. However, technical issues marred the best-of-three. The teams split the first two games before failed remakes and dropped connections forced rescheduling. In the postponed third and final match, a slow and grinding game ended up in CLG's favor. Team WE finished 5th-8th and brought home $ 75,000.
After winning the Chinese Online Qualifier for IPL5, Team WE traveled to Las Vegas to compete with fifteen other teams for the $ 100,000 prizepool. In the group stages, Team WE advanced first in their group 2-0 with victories over Fnatic and Azubu Blaze. Then in the Winner's Bracket, they went on to defeat Moscow Five (2-0), CLG EU (2-0), and once again defeating Fnatic, this time 2-1 to secure a spot in the Grand Finals where they would face Fnatic for a third time. Starting up one game in a best of five, Team WE came out victorious with a 3-1 victory to become the IPL5 Champions.
In their first major tournament in 2013, the GIGABYTE StarsWar League/Season 2, they trampled the group stage, winning every best of 2 set except against their biggest rival, Invictus Gaming, which ended in a draw. Much like IPL5, they won most of the bracket stage with almost perfect records. 2-0 against the Taipei Assassins and 3-1 against Invictus Gaming in the semifinals, WE was posed to take the tournament like they did with pretty much every single tournament they played in the past half year. But a slump hit few key members on the team such as Weixiao and team coordination was overwhelmed by miscommunication. Despite having a one win advantage due to being the winners of the winners bracket, they lost to Invictus Gaming in the grand finals 2-3.
The week before the SWL and the weeks after, the team underperformed against teams like OMG and Invictus Gaming, losing games to even teams like Royal Club Huang Zu, barely holding their top 3 spot. Despite the recent slump and less than expected performance, they managed to keep their perfect record against Positive Energy and take a game off of Invictus Gaming, in the 7th week of 2013 LPL Spring/Regular Season
Week 8 of the 2013 LPL Spring/Regular Season Team WE suffered one of their most devastating and humiliating defeats of the entire season, losing the Wings of Aurora in their first match of the week. During Day 2, they played a rough and slow game versus Royal Club Huang Zu, only winning in the end due to a decisive call made by Weixiao to base race.
Week 9 was dubbed by Chinese fans as "the Week WE returned" as they barely lost to OMG, and completely dominated Positive Energy and Invictus Gaming with the latter again not banning out Twisted Fate.
With the final week of of the 2013 LPL Spring/Regular Season looming ahead, the team had to also prepare for the upcoming NVIDIA Game Festival 2013 which they had to face OMG in the semifinals and Royal Club Huang Zu in the grand finals. By the end of the week, the team took first place in the tournament defeating Royal Club Huang Zu 2-0 in the best out of 3 series.
Despite the defeats in the LPL Spring Playoffs and the poor results at StarsWar 8, Team WE managed to defeat OMG (2-1) and Invictus Gaming (2-0) in the IEM Season VIII - Shanghai, securing 1st place in the tournament.
Team WE returned to China for the 2013 LPL Summer Split and finished 4th with a 13-8 record. They would go on to improve their performance in the playoffs and finished 3rd after defeating Royal Club Huang Zu in the 3rd place match due to Royal's forfeit. Team WE however was unable to qualify for the Chinese Regionals and didn't qualify for Worlds.
At the start of 2014, Team WE participated in the first season of Demacia Cup and finished 2nd, losing to Invictus Gaming in the Finals. In the 2014 LPL Spring Split, Team WE finished 3rd with an impressive 18-10 record. Despite their solid regular season finish, they would finish 4th in the playoffs, losing to OMG 1-2 in the 3rd place match.
The team would rebound at IEM Season IX - Shenzhen, winning the title after defeating Edward Gaming 2-1 in the finals. In the 2014 LPL Summer Split, Team WE would finish 5th with a 14-14 record. This meant the team wouldn't attend the Summer Playoffs or Worlds. In December of 2014, they attended the 2nd season of Demacia Cup and finished once more in 2nd, losing 2-3 to EDG in the finals.
During the Spring Season of 2015, WE acquired Korean star Spirit in the hopes of getting good results in the LPL. They would go on to attend the IEM IX World Championship - Katowice but leading into the event, they had a very rough time in the LPL, being at the bottom of the league when going to Katowice. Despite being counted out by most analysts, Team WE performed heavily above expectations and eliminated the Korean favorites GE Tigers from the tournament. They would fall to Team SoloMid 0-3 in the finals but took home a very respectable 2nd place finish. Going back to China to finish the Spring Split, the team was barely able to finish 8th with a 18-26 record. In the 2015 LPL Spring Playoffs Team WE fell to EDG 2-3 in the first round in a very close series.The 2015 LPL Summer Split went worse for Team WE, as they would finish 11th with a 17-27 record. This forced them to attend the 2015 LPL Spring Promotion but they would re-qualify for the LPL after defeating Unlimited Potential with a 3-0 sweep. Near the end of November the team would attend 2015 NEST and won the tournament, defeating Snake Esports 2-0 in the finals.
In the 2016 Season, after re-vamping their roster Team WE entered the 2015 LPL Spring Split as underdogs but proved to be contenders for the title after finishing 2nd with a 10-6 record. Going into the Playoffs, the team defeated Vici Gaming 3-1 and despite losing to Royal Never Give Up 2-3 in the Semifinals the team finished in 3rd after taking down Qiao Gu Reapers in the 3rd place match. Summer was slightly more successful for Team WE as the team finished 2nd in their group and in the playoffs, they finished 4th after losing an incredibly close series 2-3 to IMay. This unfortunately meant that they were unable to qualify for Worlds.
