(Thethaovanhoa.vn) – According to Chovy, these are the 4 teams that can surprise in the upcoming LCK Spring 2023.
The 2022 season has ended in an unexpected way for Mid laner Chovy and the Gen.G Esports collective. Despite being rated as the leading candidate for the World Championship 2022, Gen.G was unable to overcome DRX in the Semifinals. Despite winning the 2022 LCK Summer Championship, a domestic title with a Gen.G star cast is not enough.

In the transfer window at the end of the 2022 season, Gen.G almost did not have any significant additions. They just brought in Delight Support as a replacement for Lehends and put young player Peyz on the starting lineup after Ruler’s departure. In return, Gen.G lost the mutant bot lane Ruler – Lehends.
That’s why, in a recent speech, Chovy was quite humble when commenting on opponents in the upcoming new season. In particular, Chovy listed 4 very formidable names in the LCK Spring 2023. These are: T1, DWG KIA, KT Rolster and Hanwha Life Esports. Chovy shared: “I’m always wary of T1 and DK. But next season, there will be more HLE and KT.”

Except for T1, the remaining 3 names of these all had very noticeable additions in the last transfer period. HLE splashed out money to bring in a host of stars including players who have won Worlds or have already made their name. DK also has Deft and Canna – extremely quality names. Meanwhile, KT brought in BDD, Lehends and Kiin. These are also very notable names in the Korean LoL village.
Meanwhile, although T1 did not bring in any new faces, they successfully renewed with Faker. The stability of the force is T1’s strongest point in the new season. Not to mention, T1’s players are maturing over time. Meanwhile, despite being an “old man”, Faker also regularly wins against Chovy in each confrontation.

Although it is not clear whether the rookies of the teams can work together well, but surely the 2023 LCK Spring Split will be a competition of many big names. Each team has the potential to surprise and it will be difficult to guess which name could be the new king of the LCK.
