Although the final of VCS Spring 2023 ended with the victory belonging to GAM, it is still being interested by international friends because of SofM, JackeyLove.
Compared to other regions’ spring tournaments, the 2023 VCS Spring Split ended later. Therefore, the match between GAM Esports and SBTC Esports has also received a lot of attention from other regions. Most notably, the Chinese LoL fan community.
It is known that since the match took place, many posts appeared on Weibo when LPL fans discovered SofM was analyzing. It can be said that during the years of playing in China, the “god of the forest” born in 1998 also owned a certain number of fans and that was the reason why his appearance in VCS got him attention.
Most LPL fans still call SofM “the richest man in Vietnam” because of the great influence this player has made over the years. The proof is that as soon as the final match has not started, VCS’s channel has more than 50,000 live views just to follow SofM’s analysis. Most of the comments confirmed that GAM had a big difference in strength compared to the rest of the teams while many fans jumped to “coffee” TOP Esports because of past mistakes.
Remember in the last Worlds 2022, GAM knocked TES out of the tournament right from the group stage and ADC JackeyLove was the one who received the biggest criticism when many times made mistakes that made the home team lose. Since then, this player has always been called a “prisoner of Vietnam” and made extremely funny memes. This time when GAM won again, JackeyLove was once again mentioned by fans and even jokingly said that luck was not present in MSI 2023.
