Currently the tournament has only 6 rounds left, the current top 4 lacks the familiar name Team Flash when they are still ranked 6th with 23 points, 6 points behind the top 4 team, TDT. Time is still for Team Flash’s efforts, but it won’t be easy for the team with the most number of times in the Arena of Fame (5 times), when other candidates for the top 4 position like TDT or Heavy are not medium, especially after their performance in the first leg.
If you have to predict a name that has a high probability of appearing at the Military Zone 7 gymnasium in October, you can’t ignore BoX Gaming, they are leading the rankings with great performance from the top teams. member. It feels like BoX Gaming this season doesn’t seem to have a weakness, as their members take turns to shine in each match. If BOX Daim has a few minutes of deviation, then immediately Kuga or Gray will speak up to bring the team to victory. However, in “normal” days, it’s all too familiar for fans to watch the 2022 Winter Arena of Fame in addition to BOX Gaming, two “face-blooded” teams. The other is Saigon Phantom and world champion V Gaming who still show their class in important matches. If no drama happens in the last 6 rounds, it is certain that Lai Bang or Maris will be present at the final of the Winter Arena of Fame 2022.
The winning team in the final will receive a record prize money of up to 1.8 billion VND, double that of the Spring 2022 tournament. The runner-up team will receive 1 billion VND in prize money. This is the highest prize money for an eSports tournament, held in Vietnam up to the present time.
The Lien Quan Mobile community is looking forward to the final:
The 2022 Spring Arena of Fame event is played offline with an audience that attracts a lot of attention from fans of the LQMB game, it is necessary to know according to the data published by Garena at the end of 2021, this game will come. more than 14 million players/month with the majority being young people. The announcement quickly reached the milestone of more than 5000 emotional reactions, accompanied by thousands of comments about the final match.
The expectation of the LQMB community is not difficult to explain. Because of the fact that being held offline with an audience is always “basic” with any sport, it is not only a matter of revenue, but it is the passionate sports spirit where the players to witness his supporters, to compete under the spotlight in a vibrant atmosphere. There are special values that cannot be brought to fans by the form of competition that is not well-off or online. With eSports alone, its essence is to erase the limit of connection in the community, people who are far apart can still become comrades, together “fight” in intense ranked matches – They need an opportunity to gather, watch the players you idolize, compete in your favorite sport at the highest level – That’s the beauty of eSports.
The joy of the LQMB community is the sadness of League of Legends players:
If the LQMB community is able to fulfill its dream after 2 years of waiting, the LoL player community still does not know the smell of the grand finale of the current leading professional tournament in Vietnam – VCS. The last time, the VCS final was held on a large scale in the summer of 2019. Until the current season, after the epidemic situation was under control, VCS still did not have a true large-scale final. means. Even recently, the final of VCS Summer 2022 between GAM Esports and Saigon Buffalo was able to take place in the net room. Fortunately, this did not happen, when the players of both teams were not satisfied with the equipment here, then they were arranged by the organizers to compete online at each team’s gaming house.
CBLOL – Brazil region has the opening ceremony of the grand finals
Although VCS is ranked by Riot as one of the top 6 regions in the international League of Legends tournament system, in terms of the scale of organizing the final VCS is far behind the regions below them such as: CBLOL (Brazil), LCO (Oceania) or LLA (Latin America) all 3 listed tournaments have their own “quality” finals at stadiums and gymnasiums with a capacity of more than 10,000 seats.
Not only the organization is lacking in quality, currently, the total prize money for the VCS tournament is only 1.2 billion VND in the last 2 seasons. Far worse than the “younger brother” LQMB (increased from 3 billion to 6 billion in 2 seasons). There have been many rumors about League of Legends having to change hands in the near future, to explain the “stagnant” in the scale of VCS. The more than 10-year-old fan community of Vietnamese League of Legends, now can only wait for the “great transfer” in boredom.
