Excellent Era (嘉世, Jīashì) is an eSports team that debuted during Season 1 of the Glory Professional Alliance.

History

In the early days of the Glory Professional Alliance, Excellent Era was dominant, winning three championships. During that time, the focus of the team was Ye Qiu, and many people thought that Excellent Era only won because of him. Players such as Wu Xuefeng were unappreciated and many online players said that they too could become Ye Qiu's partner.

In Season 4, the team reached the Grand Finals once again. This time, however, they were bested by Tyranny and did not win the Championship for the first time in history.

The team failed to enter the Grand Finals for the first time in Season 5, as they were eliminated by Hundred Blossoms in the Semi-Finals.

In Season 6, the team was eliminated in the Quarter-Finals as they failed to impress again.

During Season 7, the team was once again eliminated in the Quarter-Finals, this time in a horrible fashion by Tiny Herb.

The team was relegated after Season 8 as they placed 19th during the season. They participated in the Season 9 Challengers League.

In the online stage, they dominated all of their opponents 10:0, and defeated Duskfire in the last stage of the online qualifier. In the offline stage, they were placed in Group D and topped the group with 40 points out of 40. In the playoffs, they cruised their way to the Grand Finals, where they were lost to Happy after Sun Xiang purposely disconnected from the game.

After losing the qualifiers, Tao Xuan decided to transfer the players and accounts. He also sold off the in-game materials to other Clubs. As days passed, the guild storage shrank. Qiu Fei was the only one remaining in the team and was about to transfer to Tiny Herb, but Xia Zhongtian purchased the team and saved it.

With Xia Zhongtian becoming the new CEO, their funds became limited, as he was sponsoring them out of his own money, and not using his company. The team moved out of their location opposite Happy Internet Cafe and moved to somewhere roughly 20km away from their former location. Qiu Fei became the new captain, and the new members of the team came from the training camp. 3 of their Technical Department members stayed behind to help the team.[1] Together, they are known as 'New Excellent Era' (新嘉世, Xīn jiā shì). They won the Season 10 Challengers League on Matchday 35 by defeating Mysterious Fantasy and will return during Season 11.[2]
