In the lineup of DRX crowned at Worlds 2022, BeryL is the most special factor. He doesn’t have a long career like Deft, but former DWG KIA (DK) Support is the one with the most experience in Worlds Finals. At the same time, BeryL is always considered a “monster” of the LoL village when he doesn’t spend too much time playing ranked but always keeps his high form.
For most players, ranked is a way to hone their skills, test new champions, and gain insight into updates in League of Legends releases. However, BeryL did not take this seriously. According to BeryL once shared, rating is not really effective and necessary. Moreover, he has regularly discussed with the coaching staff and teammates about tactics, gameplay… as well as participating in full scrims.
However, another important reason is: BeryL is too knowledgeable about League of Legends so he can grasp the core elements of the game. This was demonstrated by him in a recent interview. Specifically, BeryL received a question asking to say how he felt when he was considered the greatest Support in history. In the answer, the reigning World Championship 2022 champion demonstrated his extensive knowledge of the game.
Accordingly, BeryL shared: “I don’t think Support can turn the tide of the game alone. After all, League of Legends is a team game. The whole team has to do well to win. Support is simple. As I said before, I joined DRX because they have top players. But in my opinion, League of Legends is a turn-based game. It’s important that you consider when it’s your turn. , process the equipment you bought when it’s your turn, and calculate what your opponent will do on their turn”.
BeryL further explained: “LoL is a mix of turn-based and team-based. Our Top laner is very good and if he understands turn-based mechanics, improving his understanding of that genre, “He and the team will do well. To be honest, the early stages are very difficult. Both Kingen and Zeka have different ways of playing and it’s not easy to combine the team in a hurry.”
BeryL’s assessment is quite reasonable when a perfect team is that each player knows what to do in the game, and combines the actions of 5 individuals into one. In a teamfight, the ADC must know when to attack and when to retreat. A Support also needs to calculate the use of skills at the right time to make it difficult for the opponent, creating an advantage for his teammates. These are also key elements that turn-based games demand from players.
At the present time, BeryL can be considered as one of the greatest players that League of Legends in general and the LCK in particular have ever produced. More importantly, BeryL still has time to continue to achieve success and surpass seniors Mata, Wolf… in the list of the greatest supports of all time in League of Legends.
