Not long ago, Riot decided to allow the LPL (Royal Never Give Up) regional representative to compete at MSI 2022 in an online form. At the same time, Riot will give maximum support so that all matches will be played with a ping level of 35, even if the teams are playing offline right in Busan, Korea. And this has sparked a fierce controversy in the League of Legends community.
Riot allows LPL to play MSI 2022 in online form and all teams will play at ping 35 to ensure fairness.
If North America and Europe regions feel no problem, because their ping level is always many times higher than ping 35, then the LCK region is the most concerned. Because, with the leading development of League of Legends and Esports in general, the LCK region always tries its best to give gamers the best experience when playing games. The ping levels here are usually very low to ensure that players do not experience any lag issues. Moreover, in this MSI 2022, the LCK will play at “home” and the fans will not want the home team to lose their advantage.
LCK players are used to playing with low and stable ping
Recently, it was the turn of T1 ADC, Gumayusi, to also speak about the ping level of 35 on his stream channel. Accordingly, “Faker’s nephew” said: “I can clearly feel the difference of ping 35 compared to normal. And as far as I’ve known, Mr. Faker is especially sensitive to these levels. It’s this late. It’s easy for him to see that there’s a problem, though sometimes the difference is so small, it’s almost impossible to notice.”
Gumayusi said that the players, especially Faker, will not like the 35 . ping level
What Gumayusi said is completely valid. Because, for players who are used to the ideal ping level, even a small delay can be noticed, especially when performing combos at high speed. Moreover, Faker is a player who has fought almost his entire career in the most ideal ping conditions, and he is himself adept at champions that require extreme skill, often with many buttons like LeBlanc. , Ryze, Azir… so it’s not surprising that Faker noticed even a small delay.
For a player with a strong knack for championing that needs to be handled with skill and high speed like Faker, he will easily realize even the smallest delay.
Anyhow, Riot’s decision is final and certainly, if for no special reason, this publisher will not reconsider. And the job of the players, especially T1, can only be to get used to the best MSI 2022.
