As much as ShowMaker is expected, his early season performance is disappointing fans.
ShowMaker is known as one of the two people who made up the extremely important “backbone” of DK in recent seasons alongside the “best LCK” jungler Canyon. But that is extremely shaky when in this season the parameters of ShowMaker are extremely alarming.
DK with the new lineup is considered a good candidate for the LCK Spring 2023 championship, but the group stage for them was not so smooth. DK dropped two wins against T1 and GEN, although these are the two strongest teams in the LCK currently, it is clear that people expect more from DK.
The mid lane has always played an important role, so Showmaker’s obvious decline has made DK quite difficult in recent matches. This makes Canyon or Deft, despite their excellent performance, cannot help the team win against direct opponents like T1 or Gen.G.
The parameters of ShowMaker are very alarming whether in the first 15 minutes or during the match. Typically minion stats per minute (9/10), gold per minute (8/10), Damage per minute (7/10), kill participation rate (8/10)… are all important parameters of a mid laner, but ShowMaker is like “losing myself”.
Of course, the parameters in League of Legends are sometimes for reference only, but it is clear that fans have a basis to rely on to confirm Showmaker’s weakness at the moment. Therefore, one of the things DK needs to change in the near future is to help the Mid lane improve its performance, thereby being able to return in the LCK Spring 2023 championship race.
