Despite receiving many expectations, Lien Quan Mobile Vietnam lost the first match against a very strong team – Malaysia.
Along with the APL 2023 tournament, the audience of the game Lien Quan Mobile Vietnam also paid special attention to the Road to ASIAN Games tournament. In particular, after a period of speculation and controversy regarding the Vietnamese team’s lineup at the Road to ASIAN Games tournament, the official squad was present in Macau and entered the first match.
Accordingly, the first opponent of the Vietnamese team is Malaysia – a candidate that is considered very strong. Specifically, the Vietnamese team lost the first match against the Malaysian opponent with a score of 0-2. With this first defeat, the domestic audience hopes that the Vietnamese players will soon regain their form and achieve the first achievements in this international playground.
However, with Vietnam’s official lineup at the Road to ASIAN Games 2022, many spectators could not help but worry about the achievement of the home team. While Vietnam sent a semi-professional team to attend the continent’s top tournament, other countries were ready to bring out their strongest squads. Specifically, Taiwan sent Bikertopia Esports – the team that won the domestic tournament and the national qualifier. Thailand chose Bacon Times – the champion of the summer tournament and sold for SGP with a score of 4-1 at APL 2022.
That’s not to mention China when Glory King (the original game of Lien Quan Mobile) is their national mobile game and this is definitely one of the top contenders for the championship. Before so many strong opponents, it will be difficult for Vietnam to bring home a medal, especially when we do not launch the strongest squad.
