Foster City, Calif. - August 8, 2011 - Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a wholly owned US subsidiary of Perfect World Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: PWRD), today unveiled their roster for Team Legacy, which will compete against nine other countries in the second annual Jade Dynasty Global PvP Tournament (August 20 - 22, 2011) taking place in Beijing, China. Players from around the world will be flown in to compete, in front of thousands of spectators, for the ultimate title of best Jade Dynasty PvP team as well as a share of thousands of dollars worth of prizes and customized virtual items.
"With a large number of international versions, Jade Dynasty is one of the most popular MMORPGs in the world with the size of its combined, active playerbase," said Dean Sakurai, Product Manager for Jade Dynasty. "The competition our team will face is truly the cream of the crop as each 25-person team is selected from applicant pools that number in upwards of hundreds of thousands of players."
Seen as the underdog in last year's world PvP tournament, Jade Dynasty's team managed to pull several upsets to finish third place.

"This year, we hope to best last year's performance and go for Gold along with the highly coveted title of Best Jade Dynasty PvP Team in the World."
