PW to distribute CS:GO in China

Perfect World has announced that it has reached an agreement with Valve for the rights to operate CS:GO in mainland China.

The move is long overdue and will finally allow Chinese players to have access to domestic matchmaking servers, which is expected to provide a considerable boost to the country's already growing community.

Up until this point, Chinese players have been forced to use private platforms like 5E (China's equivalent of ESEA) to play on low ping servers.

CS:GO continues to grow in China 

In anticipating this move, a number of top Chinese esports organisations, such as Vici Gaming and EDward Gaming, have recently expanded to CS:GO, and more could soon follow suit. 

"Perfect World will spare no effort to promote CS:GO in China and further optimize the player's gaming experience," said Perfect World president Zhang Yunfan.

"We will continue to strengthen the competitive nature of the game. Together with Valve's research and development capabilities, we are certain that we will make CS:GO a great success in the country." 

Since the start of the year, China has hosted several big CS:GO tournaments, the most recent of which being the Pro Gamer League Summer finals, which saw Epsilon secure the lion's share of a $100,000 prize pool.

In September, the city of Nanjing will stage the offline finals of SL i-League StarSeries Season 2, where 16 teams from all over the world will face off for their share of a $300,000 prize fund.

Actually Perfect World has also distributed Dota2 in China, but as a CSGO fan, I am a little worried, the operation and marketing of PW is not that good, although distribution on CSGO is definitely good for Chinese CSGO.

I'm just glad Chinese have their own servers so I don't have to play with them. Not trying to offense good Chinese players but most of them are like the Russians of Asian servers, refuse to communicate in English and I've seen many cheaters from China also.

Russian doesn't refuse you communicate in english, they just can't. I guess same goes for chinese players since even their pro players use a translator.

Definitely. When TyLoo players need to be interviewed, there was always a translator standing beside.
2016-07-28 10:20
1. Cheaters are universe, I hate cheaters too 2. I guess they do not mean to refuse, they just cannot speak English well, and are not clear what the map position's english name is either.

Yes, that's what I have been worried about, if they are not able to hold a big event, how could I believe they can distribute and operate it well. Good news is that I heard the management has changed the whole Dota 2 group, hope PW will become better
