According to statistics, up to 13 out of 50 League of Legends players in LCS 2023 are Korean, which is an ominous number for a large region.
The past few days, the Western League of Legends community has been quite bustling when the LCS and LEC teams respectively announced the squad for the 2023 season. But instead of “admiring” and expecting new lineups, the LCS was The international League of Legends community sarcastically, “ca khà” because of the problem of internal and external soldiers.
More specifically, 10 LCS teams have all announced their main rosters for the upcoming season. But out of a total of 50 players (main roster), it is not the US but Korea that has the most players in the LCS.
However, not every team has Korean players (whether internal or external). For example, the names 100 Thieves, Counter Logic Gaming or Immortals all do not have the “Korean factor”. But with some other teams, the opposite, such as FlyQuest, Golden Guardians or Team Liquid, has up to 3 Koreans in the squad.
So many gamers have criticized the LCS for abusing foreign soldiers and lacking young talent. This not only affects the quality of the tournament, but also reduces the number of LCS followers. The most obvious proof is that Riot Games has to adjust the entire broadcast time of major tournaments in 2023 to “save” views for North America as well as the LCS.
