Top Esports is a Chinese League of Legends teams formed in 2017, when the team was known as Topsports Gaming.
With a roster of Guo "Lies" Hao-Tian, Xiong "Xx" Yu-Long, Yu "Ggoong" Byeong-jun, Zhang "QiuQiu" Ming, and Wu "Cat" Yao, the team competed for the first time at the 2017 Demacia Championship. As a new team, Top Esports stood no chance against the top Chinese sides and finished the run in ninth place.
TSE built up its roster to 10 players ahead of the 2018 LPL Spring Split, with three top laners and only a single mid laner. A lack of both consistency and synergy between the players resulted in Top Esports taking only three wins during the whole split, and the team placed seventh.
The team took its first title at the 2018 Xinhua Esports Conference, a minor tournament it attended as one of the two LPL invitees.
With fewer of its players getting important stage time in the 2018 LPL Summer Split, TSE’s performance was improving. The team finished the regular season in third place, securing a slot in the playoffs. There the team made it to the second round, but was kicked out in third place after a loss to Royal Never Give Up. The finish was enough for the 2018 Demacia Cup qualification.
With Bai "369" Jia-Hao as the new top laner, Top Esports took second place at both NEST 2018 and the 2018 Demacia Cup.
369 proved to be the change Top Esports needed to start improving. In the 2019 LPL Spring Split, the team scored 11-4 and secured third place. In the spring playoffs, TSE made it to the quarterfinals where the team was swept by RNG.
The team was renamed to Top Esports ahead of the 2019 LPL Summer Split. The roster kept improving, finishing the next regular season in second place. TES lost against RNG once again, this time in the semifinals, but defeated Bilibili Gaming for third place. The team placaed third in the 2019 LPL Regional Finals as well.
TSE started the 2020 LPL Spring Split with three new members on the team, including Hung "Karsa" Hao-Hsuan and bot lane duo Liang "yuyanjia" Jia-Yuan and Ying "Photic" Qi-Shen.
