Commentator Hysterics posted a video titled “Is TES the strongest team in the LPL Summer 2022?” caused a lot of controversy in the League of Legends community.
The 2022 Summer LPL tournament is about to officially start, at this time, many experts have made an overview of the strength of the big teams in the summer season. Among them is the English commentator of LPL Hysterics. However, this rating of the strength of this Caster’s teams has caused a lot of controversy in the Chinese League of Legends player community.
According to this commentator, TES is ranked first in the ranking of the strongest teams in the summer LPL. Unexpectedly, the defending champion of MSI 2022, the defending champion of the LPL Spring Spring RNG was only ranked second. The winner of the World Finals S11 EDG is only ranked 3rd. The 4th to 10th positions are V5, JDG, LNG, BLG, FPX, WBG, RA, respectively. Ranked 11th to 17th are the remaining teams: UP, OMG, IG, TT, AL, WE and LGD.
For this ranking of Caster Hysterics, many players believe that although TES is very strong, the competitive status of the players in the team is not stable, lest it be difficult to rank at number one. Especially the gunner player JackeyLove. This player is like a “double-edged sword”, his laning power is strong and JackeyLove also has a lot of mutant tackles in teamfights. However, the disadvantage of this gunner is the unstable performance, sometimes there are situations to handle “going into the ground”. So many players think that RNG is the strongest team in the LPL at the moment.
In addition, many players believe that Hysterics overestimated the power of EDG. Because this team only made it to the top 8 of the strongest teams in the Spring 2022 LPL. This is considered a rather disappointing result for the team that defeated DK 3-2 in the final to be crowned the final champion. world 2021. So, in terms of spring performance, EDG being placed in 3rd place doesn’t really seem appropriate.
In addition, there are also many discussions about the rankings of the WE, LGD teams. WE’s roster also had some changes during the transfer period with the successful recruitment of SMLZ player, the players are basically stable. So many people thought that WE could have strong advances in the summer tournament, but commentator Hysterics only ranked WE in 2nd place from the bottom.
In summary, because the break is quite long, the strength of many teams must have changed. There’s a chance that some teams didn’t perform well in the Spring Split but they’ll come back stronger in the Summer Split. Hopefully the LPL teams can all adjust their status to the highest level before the tournament begins, and expect the teams to show their best.
