Chinese media are not satisfied with Faker’s image appearing too much in the World Championship 2022 MV.
Riot Games soon released the MV for Worlds 2022 and created a lot of discussion. Some are satisfied, some are not before the music as well as the visuals. In addition, fans also made many analyzes and comparisons about the details and images of gamers appearing in the MV.
Then, a familiar story is repeated, Faker is still a different name every Worlds. As in this year’s MV, the image of the 26-year-old star constantly appears and is no different from the main character, taking all the spotlight.
Even if you look closely, there are even fans wearing Faker shirts standing in the center (position C), promoting the world tournament. More importantly, RNG, the team that just won the MSI 2022 championship, was just next to it.
According to Sohu, LPL fans are very unhappy with this. Because, over the years, the T1 star has not won any Worlds titles. It is true that the reputation from the “Demon King” is very high, but it cannot be so biased.
Meanwhile, the LPL area that has stormed the League of Legends world for many years has been treated unfairly. EDG is the king of Worlds and does not appear many times in the MV. And RNG, at least with the title of defending champion of MSI, defeated Faker and T1 in the last fight, and was ranked behind.
In China, the central position (position C) is highly valued. Because, this position belongs to people with great popularity and influence. In a way, Faker, as a three-time World champion, deserves respect.
But clearly, Worlds is not for every “Demon King”. Moreover, in recent years, many other names have also emerged and can become a new image with the tournament. Accordingly, Chinese fans and media have a reason to express their dissatisfaction with the 2022 World Championship MV.
