After trying his hand in the LCS with TSM, Hu "SwordArt" Shuo-Chieh has officially reunited with the World Championships runners-up roster from Suning, as the Chinese organisation has been acquired by Weibo Gaming.

Chinese social media platform Weibo purchased the LPL slot of Suning back in November, acquiring the roster, three of who were a party of the second-placed squad at the 2020 World Championships. Only missing out on the Summoners Cup by a 3-1 defeat to DAMWON Kia, Jungler Lê "SofM" Quang Duy, Mid-laner Xiang "Angel" Tao, and AD Carry Tang "huanfeng" Huan-Feng, have now been reunited with their Taiwanese Support player, SwordArt.

SwordArt Signs For Weibo Gaming

The 24-year-old (25 on December 21), became the LCS' most expensive player when he signed for TSM in 2020, agreeing a reported $6million contract for two-year. However, after just one season in America, SwordArt has returned to the Chinese league to sign with Weibo Gaming.

According to a translated post on Weibo's own platform, the organisation said "After friendly communication between the team and the players, the former TSM support SwordArt joined the League of Legends branch of Weibo Gaming as a free agent."

The superstar will join Weibo as the second support player on the roster, with Luo "ON" Wen-Jun also operating in that role. Weibo also recently signed Korean-born Kang "TheShy" Seung-lok as their Top-laner, having recently playing for Invictus Gaming for four years.

"We welcome SwordArt players again to join the League of Legends branch of the WBG E-sports club, and hope to join hands with SwordArt players to achieve greater success and set sail for dreams," Weibo Gaming added.

Whether they will be able to reclaim their former glory and challenge for the World Championships again in 2022 is yet to be seen, although they face stern competition from the likes of Top Esports, FunPlus Phoenix, and 2021 World Champions EDward Gaming.
