As soon as they saw TheShy’s account was permanently locked on the livestream, many fans speculated that Korean Riot was having a “purge” on its server.
In the Chinese and Korean LoL community, it can be said that TheShy is a name that owns a strong fan base of the Esports village. Because in addition to his competitive talent, TheShy is also a player who often does charity with huge amounts of money.
However, in Korean ranked matches, TheShy used to have a rather “unstable” past because he escaped from the match and affected Faker. The incident has made this player the focus of the League of Legends community for a long time.
To this day, TheShy continues to surprise when it is permanently locked out of the Korean LoL account right on the livestream:
According to many gamers, almost all of TheShy’s (ever public) Korean rank accounts were quickly locked. There are also many fans commenting that the WBG player is not the only name in the LPL that has been “faded” in Korean rank.
In addition, there are also many fans who think that this incident has absolutely nothing to do with TheShy’s attitude when climbing rank. Instead, LPL fans speculate that Riot Korea has stopped allowing non-Korean players to rank up on this server. This is also considered the main reason why LPL is building a new super server for itself recently.
