Coming to the 2023 Asian Games, the team will be a collection of the best individuals in the country, so the LCK is opening up a lot of options for each position.
The 2023 LCK Spring Split has just ended, it’s not difficult to make a preliminary assessment of the top laners from the top 4 teams in the last season.
Kiin: The player with the most playing experience out of the 4 top laners. Kiin is the type of person who will play cards that are rich in damage, mutations, and contribute a lot of odd catch.
King’s: The defending champion of Worlds 2022, Kingen is not the type of player that will always shine but his moments of brilliance will be truly special, just like how Kingen became the FMVP of Worlds 2022.
Doran: Someone who was once considered GEN’s “weakness” has improved a lot in just one season. Doran is calmer, uses offensive and aggressive cards.
Zeus: The youngest player but also the highest rated of the four players mentioned above. Zeus always has a way to win lane and fight with confidence but the mentality in important matches is what Zeus is weak.
Because this is a national tournament, Korea has the right to call Kanavi back to compete for the jungle position with other LCK players.
Canyon: One of the best junglers the LCK has ever produced and Canyon has always been appreciated for its ability to challenge goals and cover the map.
Canavi: Needless to say, many people forget that Kanavi can compete in Korean colors at the Asian Games. He has just successfully defended his LPL Championship and has a stable performance.
Oner: Oner is the type of jungler who is quite quiet but makes a big contribution to the game. Oner’s “background” play is suitable for the main training in the squad.
Peanut: The jungler of the 2023 LCK Spring Champion shows himself to be a great leader. Peanut plays a call-up role in every important match and does his job well.
The mid laner position is like the face of the LCK region as they consistently produce the best mid laners.
Intelligence: Currently Zeka is the reigning World Champion 2022 and has switched to playing for HLE. Zeka’s performance depends a lot on the meta as he mostly forehands melee melee cards.
Faker: The immortal monument of the LCK has entered its 10th year of professional competition and is still in high form when it has just advanced with T1 to the finals of the LCK.
Breeds: No longer a “Mr Vinh clearing the rice” every day, Chovy is aiming for a more comprehensive, more devoted play. However, in times of need, Chovy is still a big trigger for GEN.
ShowMaker: Experiencing one of the most disappointing seasons of his career, ShowMaker only gradually found himself at the end of the season.
Continuing is a call for players who are traveling from the LPL to play for the colors of the flag. The race to this gunner position is also because of that, there are 5 extremely qualified candidates.
Peyz: Young ADC Champion in the first season of debuting in the LCK and also holding FMVP is enough to see the excellence of the talent of the GEN family.
Deft: The old man has the same age as Faker and is also the current Champion of Worlds 2022. Deft has been with DK through a not-so-smooth season.
Viper: The first season of the Return of the Arrows to the LCK was not as brilliant as expected. Although Viper tried his best, he could not connect with his teammates in his super team.
Ruler: Ruler’s first tour season was a huge success with the 2023 LPL Spring Championship and FMVP finals. Perhaps Ruler has found his promised land.
Gumayusi: T1’s ADC has a fairly diverse playstyle but is not too prominent or explosive, this is Gumayusi’s weakness compared to the 4 people mentioned above.
Support is not a prominent position in the LCK lineup so the choice for this position is also quite limited.
Dig: Support T1 is considered one of the best supports in the LCK with a large champion pool and extremely mischievous fighting style. However, Keria doesn’t hug the ad too closely, so it needs a good self-destructing ADC.
Delight: The support of the defending champion LCK Spring 2023 was somewhat overshadowed by his excellent teammate in all discussions. However, every victory is a collective effort, there are people who are as quiet as Delight and there are people who shine like Peyz.
BeryL: The LCK’s greatest support of all time is the only one left in DRX after the 2022 World Championship. BeryL’s genius brain makes it possible for him to use any card to support and read strategy. Very good.
