LCK regained the throne after 2 years World Championship
LCK missed the World Championship (LOL) championship last year. But this year, which was a desperate year, LCK sat on the LOL World Cup throne for the first time in two years, proving it to be the best league in the world.
LCK was the most brilliant area in the 2022 LOL World Cup, which ended with a dramatic victory by DIX on the 6th (Korea Standard Time). This year, LCK produced as many as three teams that advanced to the semifinals as last year. But the results were different. Unlike 2021, when he had to be satisfied with the runner-up, he showed off his potential by creating a LCK civil war in the final in five years.
At the 2022 LOL World Cup, LCK solidified itself as the world’s best league in terms of performance and storytelling. LCK got off to a good start from the play-in stage as DIX beat Royal Never Give Up (RNG), and all teams succeeded in advancing to the quarterfinals, with three teams ranking first in the group stage.
And he also showed his power in the multi-tournament premise. In fact, since 2017, LCK has been struggling on multiple premise. In particular, he has repeatedly been frustrated in the face-to-face matches with Chinese LPL, a rival league. In fact, all four teams that participated last year advanced to the quarterfinals and three teams advanced to the semifinals, but Gen.G eSports and Damwon Kia had to give up the trophy in two multi-choice matches against Edward Gaming (EDG) of LPL.
But this year was different. T1, who finished second, showed off LCK’s strength by defeating RNG in the quarterfinals and Jingdong Gaming 3-0 and 3-1 in the semifinals, respectively. As such, LCK, which already had an advantage over LPL in the group stage, succeeded in leading LPL in the tournament.
In terms of storytelling, it was ahead of other leagues as it produced the best players in addition to its long history of reigning as the strongest region. In particular, it entertained fans around the world by creating numerous stories, including T1 “Faker” Lee Sang-hyuk, who challenged to win four times, and DRX “Deft” Kim Hyuk-kyu’s Mapo-go Derby, who sought to win the first championship. 파워볼사이트
