The 2022 LCK Spring Split is in danger of suspending the competition because of the “attack” of Covid-19, many teams suffered heavy losses because the players were positive.
In recent days, information about LCK players who are positive for Covid-19 has continuously appeared, making the community extremely confused. In particular, many teams had to put players in the young squad to compete, which caused many disadvantages in terms of the results of the current 2022 LCK Spring Spring 2022 group stage.
It can be mentioned in the case of NS RedForce, this team was in a very difficult situation when players like Bdd, Effort, head coach sBs were unable to play. Or recently, the unfortunate incident of Gen.G Esports, the team was missing 3 important factors, Peanut, Doran and Lehends in the battle to equalize the score with T1 in the 4th week of competition.
Currently, the “Covid wave” in the LCK shows no sign of stopping as NS continues to announce that their top laner has tested positive for Covid-19. Accordingly, Canna will not be able to participate in NS’s next week’s matches, immediately the youth team player DnDn has been brought up to replace this position.
It can be seen that this is the strongest outbreak ever of the LCK, but because most of the players have been fully vaccinated, the level is not as serious as last season.
However, if the number of players infected with Covid increases more and more, it will certainly greatly affect the results of the group stage of the LCK Spring 2022. Teams with members infected with Covid will not be able to compete with 100%. their strength, thereby causing disadvantage in the group stage race.
If the epidemic becomes more complicated and serious, especially when new Covid-19 variants appear, the LCK is at risk of having to be suspended for a short time. Or at least the LCK will switch to online competition similar to previous seasons to avoid the players and tournament organizers having to interact too much.
This is definitely not what fans want, the LCK is extremely attractive with dramatic matches. So if it had to stop, it would certainly be extremely regrettable. Information about the LCK will be updated, please stay tuned for more.
