by Juandi

The US$30,000 event aims to indicate esports’ near-complete return to a pre-pandemic situation in China.

The second season of the ProHouse Wuxi Villa Cup, organized by Vision Esports, will take place from May 5-8 on LAN in Wuxi, China. The ~$30,000 tournament will be held in a round-robin format, with each team facing off against the other once in a best-of-one match, with the top four teams progressing to a best-of-three, double-elimination playoff bracket.

With CN¥200,000 on the line, ProHouse Wuxi Villa Cup Season 2 is headlined by the highest-ranked team in the tournament, TYLOO, followed by Wings Up Gaming and LVG (Lynn Vision Gaming). They will be joined by After Gaming, who finished 9th-12th place in the first season of Funspark ULTI 2021 Regional Series Season 1. Reece and Let’s Quit are the lowest-ranked side in attendance in the Chinese tournament.

Below are the six teams who will be taking part in the offline event:

In China, esports activity has accelerated, with several event organizers already hosting offline activities across China provinces. On April 14, Overwatch League revealed that they would host a handful of live events in China during the 2021 season. For Dota 2, the i-League 2021 was held in Shanghai by ImbaTV, with a total prize pool of CN¥1,200,000 (~US$185,362) on the line for the top Chinese teams in attendance such as ViCi Gaming, Invictus Gaming, and PSG.LGD.

TYLOO secured the inaugural season of ProHouse Wuxi Villa Cup, narrowly defeating LVG in the grand final (Mirage 16-10, Dust2 16-19, Inferno 16-6). ProHouse Wuxi Villa Cup Season 1 was held as an offline event, held at Wuxi Province, China in August last year. All five teams competing from the first season will retain their spot, except TaiChangGui, who Reece will replace.
