Taiwan musician Jay Chou and Chinese-Canadian singer-actor Kris Wu recently battled each other in an event to mark the sixth anniversary of the video game League of Legends in China.

In the clash, Chow and Wu, respectively, led five-member teams.

With more than100 million players, League of Legends — developed by the US publisher Riot Games and distributed by the internet giant Tencent in China — is now one of the most popular video games in the country.

The star clash was part of the 2017 LOL Summer Finals of the Professional League, which concluded on Sept 3.

In the league, Guangzhou-based e-sports club EDward Gaming beat Royal Never Give Up, financed by a Jiangxi company, to claim the championship.

Meanwhile, competitions in 2018 will be held in Chengdu, Chongqing and Hangzhou.
