To date, LPL fans are considered the most toxic community in the world of League of Legends.
LPL is one of the leading developed League of Legends platforms in the world. Accordingly, China’s No. 1 tournament also owns a strong fan base. Worlds held in the “mainland” have also become a craze for the LoL community here. However, the strong fan force sometimes also leaves unpredictable consequences.
In addition to the true fans, many Ultras groups are created specifically to go to war with other regions and criticize anyone as long as they do not please them. This has been condemned by the Chinese media many times, but so far, everything is still in place.
Recently, a group of extremist fans created a similar incident and the victim this time is the LPL’s BLV. Specifically, in the match between WBG and TES, JackeyLove played prominently. However, when voting for MVP, female caster Tongxi ignored ADC Tes. Along with that, she does not appreciate JackeyLover.
Disagreeing with this girl, a series of fans flocked to her Weibo to insult and disparage her. Even a group of people brought in Tongxi’s idol, Viper, to curse. Not long after, another editor, Miller, also fell into a similar situation. There, JackeyLove didn’t play well but the caster had no right to comment. Finally, if they accidentally criticize them, they will have to bear the onslaught of fanatical fanatics. And Miller had to apologize despite doing nothing wrong.
The above series of events of course made many people unhappy, especially for the colleagues of the two victims. Long Mao – a former LPL BLV has bluntly criticized the environment at LPL is not good and many professionals have to follow the opinion of the majority of fans instead of highlighting their opinions. In addition, he also shared an image of Miller bowing his head in apology just for the sake of money.
