Event Details

WCG (World Cyber Games) 2019 Xi’an is a national based esports competition. We will see players from 85 different nations come together to compete against one another. It is available for everyone and anyone to register to compete.

There will be a lengthy process for players to go through before stepping onto the stage for the Grand Final. First of players and teams must work their way through the national qualifiers. This is where we’ll get a good idea of who the real contenders are to make it all the way.

The next stop is the regional qualifiers. After regional qualifiers, players and teams will advance to the regional finals. Success at these finals will see them leap the WCG 2019 Xi’an Grand Final. The winner of the final will be regarded as the next WCG Legend, a prestigious title to hold.

The grand final takes place on July 18th-21st, 2019.

Featured Esports Titles

  • Clash Royale,
  • Crossfire,
  • Dota 2,
  • Hearthstone,
  • Honor of Kings,
  • Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne

We will see a mix of past and present esports titles. Each being at the top of the industry at different points.

There are significantly fewer titles being featured this time around compared to the past. However, this could be for the best. It will allow them to focus on perfecting the event for its big return. If it’s successful, and it should be, we could see other titles featured at it next year.

In the past, the World Cyber Games was regarded as being the Olympics of esports. It will be interesting if it can return and meet that stature again. They have much higher standards and a lot more competition these days, so they may need to step their game up.
