Since the final match of the LCK Spring 2022, throughout the media, T1 has completely covered. A lot of ink has been used to describe the historic victory of Faker and his teammates against the all-star lineup of Gen.G Esports. The League of Legends community is also ecstatic with the record for the team having the most perfect season in the history of the LCK in particular and the world League of Legends in general. It can be said, as one fan himself commented: “All the glory of League of Legends right now belongs to T1”.
All the glory of the current LoL village belongs to T1
And when all the glory is focused on Faker and his teammates, the darkness belongs to the loser – the Gen.G collective and especially the player that can be considered as one of the expected names to come. become the new monument of the Korean LoL village if one day Faker retires: Chovy.
Chovy failed again
“Great runner-up” of LoL village
In all fairness, Chovy had a very good day. And not only the final of LCK Spring 2022, but before that, in many matches, typically the Semi-final against DWG KIA, Chovy has also proven to be the brightest star of Gen.G. Typically, the divine “flip” of 10k gold in front of the LCK 2021 champion has marked Chovy’s imprint and influence. And in the match against T1, the LeBlanc phases full of illusions or the performances with Viktor and Ahri of Chovy also caused many difficulties for Faker and T1.
Chovy used LeBlanc full of variables right in front of Faker – who has been associated with this champion
But then, despite the efforts from day to day, Chovy was still empty-handed. If ShowMaker has had high flying days with DK, and Bdd has also won 2 LCK championships, for Chovy, it’s all just a round zero since he started his professional career. Certainly Chovy is the most prominent midlaner in the current LoL village. In terms of influence, his reputation is probably second only to Faker. Even, in terms of skills, Chovy can be confident that he is not inferior to “Demon King”. Many T1 fans also have to admit, in terms of laning skills, in the current LCK, no one can compare to Chovy.
The skills are superfluous, but until now, Chovy is still empty-handed
But then in return, Chovy had a total of 6 defeats against Faker in BO 5 matches every time Chovy’s team had a chance to face SKT T1/T1. Besides, there are 5 more LCK runners-up times. The title “great runner-up” or “second runner-up” is neither born nor destroyed. It just moved from the legendary Uzi to the player who is also expected to become another legend in the future, Chovy.
The title “King 2nd” should probably be transferred from Uzi to Chovy
“Hero has no time” or the talent still can’t grow?
Psychology has always been Chovy’s fatal weakness since the beginning of his career. In the previous Griffins shirt, Chovy’s failure can be blamed on inexperience. But until now, Chovy has been playing professionally for almost 4 years, and has experienced countless battles. Chovy still has extremely indiscreet handling phases. Typically in game 3. Chovy’s decision not to return resulted in him receiving a Super Terrifying Ballistic Missile at a time when Chovy himself was having an advantage over Faker. After this situation, T1 took a 2 turret Mid laner circuit from Gen.G.
Chovy stayed in the mid lane for quite a while despite his weak health
Another factor is that Chovy won against Faker in the lane, but compared to the seasoned senior, Chovy’s ability to cover and read the game is still very poor. While Faker is willing to sacrifice many waves of soldiers to create an advantage for his teammates, Chovy still clings to the farm very persistently. Then Peanut alone is always not enough. If Little Bean ganks well, then Gen.G has the advantage. And if Peanut fails, no one at Gen.G can correct it, especially since Chovy is still… farming and farming.
Chovy is still somewhat inferior to Faker in covering, reading the game and handling situations
League of Legends has been, is and will always be a 5-player game. And Chovy’s title of “Golden Spine” or his crazy moves won’t help on a day when he’s the only one who really tries. Even witnessing Chovy’s countless efforts, this title is more of an irony than admiration for the midlaner’s ability to carry the team born in 2001.
In fact, around Chovy, there were never any worthy teammates as well as a certain harmony with him. With Gen.G’s new team form close to 100%, the connection may not be really strong. But perhaps, no one understood why Doran and Lehends decided to swing into the bush with Zeus’s very green Kennen waiting. Or why Peanut was able to steal Dragon and Baron but failed to gank so much that Gen.G lost the game.
The connection and skills of some Gen.G players are not really good
Meanwhile, next to ShowMaker is Canyon – the world’s best jungler at the moment. As for Faker, he has 4 talented young teammates who are surprisingly close to perfection. Regarding the objective reason as a teammate, Chovy was also far behind ShowMaker and Faker.
Next to ShowMaker is the genius in the position of Jungle – Canyon
While Faker and T1 are the most perfect team in LoL today
The 2022 LCK Spring Split has ended and once again, Chovy was defeated by Faker. The upcoming summer will be an opportunity for the former Hanwha Life Esports star to correct his mistakes. And Chovy himself must improve himself, before expecting his teammates to form a Gen.G collective powerful enough to overthrow Faker and his teammates’ throne.
