THE RICH CS history in China

Counter-Strike is coming back to an Intel® Extreme Masters event in China after a seven year break.  We have had four championships in China between 2009 and 2011. 

Those included victories by Team wNv for the IEM Asian Championship in Chengdu (January 2009).  The same year, SK Gaming won the IEM Chengdu (October 2009) with Robert “Robban” Dahlstrom in the roster.  Robban is the FaZe Clan coach today.  The following two years Fnatic won (Shanghai in 2010 and Guangzhou in 2011) and the Swedish team was represented in Shanghai by Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg and Christopher “GeT RiGhT” Alesund (currently Ninjas in Pyjamas) as well as Patrik “cArn” Sattermon who is the Chief Gaming Officer at Fnatic today.

The 2018 Intel® Extreme Masters Shanghai event is an opportunity to reconnect to that history and build a new, great future for CSGO in China.
