Although it has only just started the first week of the VCS Summer 2022 tournament, the views are very high.
So, after a long time when other regions like the LCK, LPL or LEC all started the new season of League of Legends this summer, recently our VCS region has also followed at the start. with the first matches of the tournament.
It must be said that this year’s VCS Summer 2022 gathered a lot of outstanding teams and also had many problems when they had to compete online because GG Stadium was closed as well as information that Garena will no longer continue to accompany the subject of League of Legends. but must be handed over to Riot Games to run.
Last week of competition marked the return of the VCS tournament.
In the first week of competition, there were countless extremely attractive matches accompanied by surprises that made the Vietnamese League of Legends fan community admire when the teams “tipped for tit-for-tat”. and shows that the quality is almost the same. In particular, SBTC with the wrestling screen of the reigning GAM Esports champion while the SGB runner-up or the “3-headed dog” of CES all had to taste defeat right from their opening matches.
SBTC Esports had a favorable start when defeating the defending champion of GAM Esports.

With a series of personnel changes, the teams all want a spot to Worlds 2022, even the underrated names that have just been promoted like Team Whales (TW) are leading the rankings after the first week of competition. competition, this proves that the player level has now been shortened.
No one expected Team Whales to be at the top of the VCS week 1 chart.
These factors have helped to increase the number of fans watching online incredibly, when the confrontation between AS Esports – Team Whales seemed to have attracted more attention recently. 40,000 live views on Youtube channel VETV7 – the number is 2 times higher than last season. As for the key match between SBTC vs GAM, it reached 105 thousand views with the opening match, which is unimaginable compared to previous seasons.
There was a time when this number reached 105,127 viewers of the GAM vs SE match.
Many people think this comes from foreign investors starting to pay more attention to the VCS region through SGB’s impressive performance at the last MSI 2022 tournament when it entered the top 6, not to mention GAM won a gold medal at the recent Sea Games.
Moreover, the teams are now more professional and the young talent training route is strict and methodical. Moreover, this year, VCS will participate in Worlds 2022 after 2 years of absence due to the complicated Covid situation in the country, so everyone wants to keep their slots.
