The Olympics of Esports is back! WCG 2019 Registration is open right on their home page: http://www.wcg.com/

Who are we going to see take the most gold, silver, and bronze medals this July? You can see here the history of the previous events: http://www.wcg.com/about/about-wcg. In their last tournament back in 2013, Korea won 2 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze. This put them at number one for that year. For 2012 it was China who won the most medals with 3 gold, 2 silver, and 2 bronze. In 2011 Korea seemed unstoppable with 4 golds, 2 silvers, and 1 bronze.

I could go on and on, but looking back at the previous years it seems Korea is the King of the World Cyber Games, they have been in the Top 3 every year. Well, the event is a Global Competition. Who from around the globe will be registering? Who will make their country proud? And can anyone dethrone The King and bring home the most medals?
