Although there is a “ceiling” salary law for players, famous players still easily get salaries that are too high compared to what they contribute to the team.
LPL has always been known as the “giant” area in League of Legends with “blockbuster” contracts and huge salaries for superstar players. Although these are limited by the newly issued “ceiling” salary law, there are still many cases where players receive “unbelievable” salaries even though they do not contribute much to the current team. money for yourself.
Legend of LPL – Gunner Uzi is the first “on the board” in this thread. The LPL audience has always had a great deal of respect for this legendary AD carry, even referring to Uzi as a true counterweight to Faker. However, his great fame comes with a huge salary bonus that even LPL fans say is a bit “too much” compared to what Uzi can actually do.
The players who receive the “heavenly” salary are not only Uzi, some prominent names mentioned are also TheShy, Doinb, … Usually they will have a title or great reputation in a season. and from there the salary will increase more and more “dizzy”.
No wonder Doinb bought a villa at the age of 24 25, Uzi lives in a villa in one of the biggest cities in the world – Shanghai, or TheShy, although not contributing much to Weibo Gaming, is still a team. The player with the second highest salary in the LPL. They’re famous, that’s for sure! Their performance is always high and contributes to the team, not sure!
One example of the attractiveness of the salary in the LPL is that even Uzi intends to “set up” to return to professional play even though he has announced his retirement for a while. This made LPL fans strongly protest because Uzi is degrading the image of an LPL legend.
But such pampered stars are not without reason. Typically, recently a fan of TheShy was attacked when selling his autographed photo for 100,000 yuan (approximately 340 million VND). This is a number that many people have to work hard for years to earn. Just one photo is a lot of money, so how much does a flesh and blood person pay?
But getting paid up to “heaven” for players does more harm than good. Not to mention how easily the money will spoil people, but when they switch to teams with less financial resources, they also have to suffer a lot. Typically Angel – WBG’s Mid lane and can now be considered unemployed. His salary at WBG may not be equal to TheShy or SofM, but compared to LPL it is still very high. Therefore, Angel has almost not found a new destination even though the transfer market of the 2022 season is almost over.
So in the future, it is likely that the LPL and Riot will continue to tighten the compensation law of League of Legends in general and the LPL in particular. This not only creates a healthier professional environment, but also fairness for the team, players and spectators.
