Invictus Gaming, often shortened to iG, is a Chinese eSport organisation with headquarters in Shanghai, China. Invictus was founded in August 2011, when Wang Sicong, son of the Dalian Wanda Group chairman Wang Jianlin, ranked as the third richest person in China according to Forbes[1]) purchased the entirety of the Catastrophic Cruel Memory team, including the team's StarCraft II, Dota 2 and League of Legends squads for a reputed sum of $6 Million.[2]
