Chinese Chat Service Company TT Acquires Dominus Esports, Secures LPL Franchise

Chinese League of Legends Pro League team Dominus Esports announced Wednesday that it has been acquired by Chinese chat service company TT and rebranded as a League of Legends division of TT Esports.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

On Sept. 9, TT Head of Esports Yifei Liu revealed in an interview that the company was considering an acquisition of one of the LPL teams and a franchise slot. There were several signs (as highlighted in our previous coverage) that its acquisition target was Dominus Esports.

In February, TT acquired Honor of Kings team XQ and its King Pro League (KPL) franchise slot. The team was rebranded to TTG.XQ with a new logo (of a goat) and has its own home venue in Guangzhou. In May, TT also became the official chat service partner of the KPL.
