Since the success of the “Golden Generation” – G2 Esports in 2019, the LEC region has received consecutive failures at international tournaments. Specifically, in the period of 2021 – 2022, no LEC representative could enter the group of 4 strongest teams at the World Finals (Worlds).
The main reason for this failure lies in the extremely low competitive format of the LEC tournament. Teams in Europe only have to play 2-3 games per week, causing the level to decrease over time. Not stopping there, the LEC teams are also not mentally prepared when it comes to international tournaments.
However, according to the assessment of League of Legends (LoL) experts, the LEC region will have strong changes in the upcoming 2023 season. Specifically, commentator Wolf shared with Inven Global that LEC representatives will be very competitive in international tournaments.
“I believe that the LEC representatives will be very strong next season. The first reason lies in the fact that many teams invest heavily and have quality players. Then, the LEC changes the format of the competition. With more Bo3, Bo5 matches, it will help the teams here improve very quickly. LEC teams will have great competitiveness in future international tournaments “- BLV Wolf shared.
In recent years, the audience has become too familiar with the LCK and LPL representatives dominating international tournaments. Hopefully the LEC teams can rise up and be qualified to challenge the strength of the Asian representatives in the upcoming 2023 season.
