A little bit of history
Taiwan has been one of the regions hosting an the official TPC circuit since June 2020, and it was part of the Oceania region of the official TPCI circuit before that. It has hosted multiple major events, including Regional Championships, Special Events, and both TPCI-era and current TPC-era National Championships. It was the only region in the world to consistently host major live events during the 2020–2022 seasons. Taiwan’s greatest VGC success was Wu Pi‘s 2019 Junior Division World Championship win.
The most recent tournament held in Taiwan was the 2023 Kaohsiung Regionals, played in the VGC Regulation Set B in March 2023. The finals saw Taiwanese Yang Da-wei defeat 2022 Hong Kong Nationals finalist Ma Chun Yeung to achieve his first major title.
