A story revolving around a top-tier gamer adored by fans who falls from glory and overcomes many obstacles to make his return.

Within Glory, Ye Xiu (Yang Yang) is a player with master-class skills. Due to many reasons, he is kicked off the team and forced to give up his career as a professional gamer. He finds a job as the manager of an internet cafe run by Chen Guo (Maggie Jiang). Bringing with him ten years worth of experience, Ye Xiu gets back in the game under the user id "Jun Mo Xiao." He eventually gathers Su Mu Cheng (Lai Yumeng), Tang Rou (Li Yujie), Bao Rongxing (Lai Yi) and Qiao Yifan (Fan Jinwei) to form the strongest team that catches the attention of everyone in Glory.

  • Yang Yang who has been announced as the leading man since the drama was introduced as part of Tencent's new dramas was subjected to cyberbullying when anti-fans burned pictures of him on Qingming (Tomb Sweeping Day). This was to express their anger over his casting. The King's Avatar released a statement to condemn the action and Yang Yang's management company has resorted to legal action.
