From the upcoming 2023 season, it is highly likely that the LoL community will not be able to see “tryhard” LPL players on the Korean server anymore.
Throughout the years, Korean rank has always been considered a “holy place” for League of Legends players around the world to practice skills. Therefore, the matches in Korean rank are increasingly skilled and specialized compared to other regions.
But recently, there have been many LPL fans spreading rumors that Korean rank will be absent of Chinese players in the near future. The reason is because of Jiejie’s statement in a recent livestream:
“We will most likely not be able to play Korean rank next season. I heard they’re making a server like the Champions Queue at Worlds for us.” Jiejie shared about the new server in China.
According to research, the Champions Queue server has been operating for a long time in North America and the latest is the last Worlds 2022, it has also attracted a lot of attention from the community. The reason is because the matches have the participation of many international players and streamers, the famous “boy1champ”.
So many players speculate that the LPL organizers will ban players of this region from “tryhard” in Korean rank from the 2023 season, the purpose is to create a new “mecca” for League of Legends players to practice. .
On the other hand, there are also many gamers who think that creating a Champions Queue server in the LPL is not effective. Because here, Chinese League of Legends also has its own “super server”, but it does not have enough appeal compared to Korean rank. So the thing that interests many fans the most is probably the fact that LPL players cannot play at Korean rank in the upcoming season.
