The LCK recently held a meeting to “point out” the names in the world that have the potential to shake the “unique” of this region in the international arena.
The LCK is currently the dominant region in the world of LoL with the 2022 World Championship belonging to DRX. People even call Worlds 2022 the extended LCK when three quarters of the LCK teams reach the semi-finals. But looking back at history, Korean League of Legends also fell many times by international opponents in important finals.
Not wanting that forgotten history to repeat itself, the LCK shared a “half-joking” short episode about players who might threaten the region’s dominance in the near future. The names are mentioned in a quite humorous way but still no less specific and professional analysis.
The first mentioned is Adam – top laner from the LEC, the “spies” in the LCK said that Adam is a player with an image associated with the ax because he often uses champions like Olaf or Darius. Currently, Adam is playing for Team BDS – the team that has just reached the top 5 in the “parking round” of the LEC, but this guy still has quite a few impressive stats in this area.
The LEC has not been a big threat to the LCK’s uniqueness for a long time, but if this Adam factor is perfected and developed, it is certain that he will help the LEC move up another level of power.
Dubbed “TheShy HongKong”, YSKM attracted attention when he and IG held the top spot of IG in LPL Spring 2023. YSKM is said to be a potential rookie when solo killing both Ale and Breathe – 2 out of 5 recruits. players are considered “best toplaners of LPL”.
In YSKM’s account on the Korean server, his friends list has quite a few famous top laners. And the player said he often invites opponents on his solo roster to learn from them.
The next threat to be “rolled in” is C9 Fudge from LCS – who used to “sell” for Huni in 2021 and made TSM and Huni lose tickets to Worlds 2021. At the time the video was released, Fudge currently the player with the most MVPs in the 2023 LCS Spring Split.
The last name mentioned is quite special when he is a “true” Korean but threatens the “prosperity” of the LCK because he is currently playing for FlyQuest – LCS in the current season. .
After the last week of competition, Prince surpassed Fudge and became the player with the most MVPs in the tournament, and Prince is also with FlyQuest on an unbeaten streak of 6 consecutive matches in the 2023 LCS Spring Split.
