The Game Award’s Best E-Sports Team Award is facing fierce controversy right at the nomination because the World Championship Champion and Runner-up seem to be “missing”.
Overcoming T1 and DRX, Gen.G became the only League of Legends team to receive a nomination in The Game Awards’ Best E-Sports Team category. However, this news does not know whether to be happy or sad because around this nomination, many followers of League of Legends disagree.
Agree that Gen.G is not bad, but their performance at Worlds 2022 is difficult for people to recognize them as the best Team of the year. After all, Gen.G is only the 2022 LCK Summer Champion and was eliminated in the Worlds 2022 Semifinals by DRX – the 4th Seed of the LCK. It should be calculated that Gen.G and JDG – the 2022 LPL Summer champion who was eliminated in the semi-finals by T1 is no different, just “the same tray”.
Referring to the team that made the biggest impact in 2022 without DRX, it is really lacking because the journey of DRX from the team struggling to stay in the LCK relegation to the world champion is a very long and magical journey. Many people think that DRX has just experienced a fairy tale, a fairy tale about people who work hard and strive towards their dreams.
T1 experienced a very difficult year with 3 times of bitter and regretful second place. Tears have been shed and what has happened cannot be undone. But Faker and his teammates are still a monster in any matchup, in any tournament. They have 4 finals in 1 year and that is enough for people to know T1 is a “waiting for the throne” king. They are not “king without a throne” because they have won the throne many times and surely their throne will return in the near future.
