Although Chovy has qualified for Worlds 5 times in a row, he has never won any world championship title. Therefore, this player is often ridiculed when entering the international arena. Worlds 2023 will most likely be the biggest opportunity for Chovy to win this title when he and the Gen.G team are in very high form.
Worlds 2023 is probably the best chance for Chovy to win the world championship
Chovy and Gen.G’s upcoming opponent in the Quarterfinals of Worlds 2023 will be an annoying team called Bilibili Gaming (BLG). It was BLG who brought sadness to Gen.G at this year’s MSI by eliminating them in the loser’s bracket. Chovy and his teammates must definitely defeat this opponent if they want to confirm their ambition to win the world championship this year.
