Playing a “lose streak” for 8 consecutive matches, Impact was so tired that he wanted to quit the game and return to Korea.
Eight years ago, Impact won the World Championship season 3 with SKT T1 and became one of the best top laners at the time.
After leaving the LCK and going to the North American LCS to “retire”, this player still has many impressive achievements, many times winning regional championships and participating in MSI and Worlds. Even when he is no longer in his prime, 2013 Worlds champion Impact is still considered one of the top laners in the LCS.
Impact is a name that many people appreciate in the LCS.
Such is the “heroic” past, but after “quitting the game” for 4 months, Impact is having a pretty big obstacle in returning to practice after 4 months away from League of Legends. More specifically, Impact and Evil Geniuses have been resting since the end of August (due to no tickets to Worlds 2021), so this player is also “AFK” and has not touched his LoL account since August until now.
The “red” match history of the top laner of the Evil Geniuses team.
But when the new season was about to start, Impact was entering the rank of training to regain his spirit before the 2022 season, when he encountered “stress” more seriously. Because the account hasn’t been ranked for a long time, Impact was pushed down to Diamond, even after losing 8 consecutive matches he was relegated to Platinum I.
Impact’s account is currently at Platinum I with 430 wins and 369 losses.
Because of his high elo, there was a match that took him more than 2 hours to find the match.
In particular, what makes Impact more “inhibiting” is the fact that each of his ranked matches takes hours to find a match. Waiting for the game for a long time and losing 8 games in a row made Impact so “stressed” that he wanted to book a plane ticket from the US to Korea.
He shared a photo online to book a one-way flight from Los Angeles to Incheon.
