Bulky move or KeSPA’s “conspiracy theory” to “help T1”?
To prepare for the ambition to win the gold medal at Asiad 2022KeSPA planned quite meticulously to choose the team League of Legends strongest representative of Korea. Because there are so many stars in the world’s top League of Legends tournament, choosing the last 6 names into the squad is really not an easy thing.
Therefore, in recent times, KeSPA has started to make announcements about the selection of this squad. With a series of criteria listed in detail, along with a separate training plan to close the squad. However, this plan is constantly being changed, making the community doubt its effectiveness.
Remember in Asiad 2018, when League of Legends was still a performance sport, no medals were counted, the voting method was quite easy. It’s about letting the fans vote, and at the same time limiting to a maximum of 2 players from a team.
10 names participating in the final selection round for the Korean squad at Asiad 2022
Another way used by China or many regions is to compete in the selection round, or put the squad of the last domestic championship team as the national team. This is considered an extremely effective method when ensuring complete connectivity between 5 players. However, in an area with a large and fastidious audience like the LCK, this method is difficult to do. If not, choosing the whole lineup T1 having just won the 2022 LCK Spring Split to attend the 2022 Asiad is very possible with the ambition to win gold.
And the LCK fan community thinks that KeSPA is also thinking this. Therefore, the introduction of criteria, a shortlist and a centralized plan for selection is seen as a way to legitimize the selection of as many T1 players as possible.
Despite the ability to combine well with Keria, Deft is really difficult to compete with Gumayusi in terms of current form.
First, there are criteria such as individual skills, teamwork ability, international experience and collective and individual achievements in domestic tournaments from 2019 to present. Except Faker If all of them are complete, the remaining 9 players on the list lack more or less criteria. This makes names other than T1 like Kiin, Deft also not really have many advantages when compared to Zeus, Gumayusi, Oner.
Following that, KeSPA has just announced the cancellation of public practice matches with the teams PSG Talon and Detonation FocusMe. Instead, there were internal practice matches between 10 players. The coach for the Korean League of Legends team, kkOma, and his associates will be responsible for dividing the squad and supervising each of these matches.
Canyon is the only player outside T1 who has a high chance of attending Asiad 2022
With T1 having up to 5 players on the shortlist, they will have a better chance of synergizing with their teammates no matter how divided. Meanwhile, Chovy, Kiin, Deft or even Canyon will be more or less lost. And obviously, these are internal matches, so it is difficult for the audience to verify what the BHL offers.
It is known that the Korean Olympic Committee has moved the deadline for athlete registration from the end of April to the end of May and the beginning of June. Therefore, this selection process will take a long time. And when it comes to finalizing the final lineup to attend Asiad 2022, if the whole T1 squad is selected (or at least 4), it will be difficult for the community to argue.
