After the mic check was leaked, many fans confirmed that the reason why GAM lost so painfully at VCS Sunset 2023 was none other than Zin’s position.
GAM’s recent achievements in the international arena are not so impressive, if not worth forgetting. Returning to VCS, they added a quality ADC to replace Sty1e’s Slayder. With this move, many people firmly believe that it is not too difficult for the team to continue to be the defending champion.
But the unexpected happened when Levi and his teammates had difficulties in the first 2 weeks of competition. GAM had to work very hard to overcome SBTC Esports with a score of 2-1. They then lost 0-2 to Team Flash. After that, despite only meeting the top 8 team last season, MGN Box Esports, it is hard to believe that GAM also lost 1 game before winning upstream.
Slayder’s performance is certainly noticeable, but it’s clear that this ADC has been exploited too much and can no longer keep his form as before. In addition, the strangeness also makes him unable to integrate with the team’s playstyle. Many people think that GAM’s rookie is having a hard time playing with Zin. Originally an ADC, but Slayder is leading the solokill list (9 times) to see this anomaly.
The fan community criticized Zin for many reasons such as unreasonable movement, too narrow champion pool. Recently, when GAM released the mic check, Zin was also exposed to another problem, calling for too much unnecessary information.
Usually Levi is still the main call in all situations, the rest of the team can also contribute from laning to teamfights. However, in the role of Support, Zin seems to do this too enthusiastically but does not bring high efficiency.
Through the mic check, it can be seen that Zin has repeatedly given wrong information about the opponent’s skills and spells. During the fight, members of GAM also called out and disagreed with Levi. So fans think that the reason why GAM lost the battle was Zin. In the future, GAM needs to adjust this right away if it doesn’t want to continue to fail.
