If Rookie really cannot compete in the 2022 LPL Summer, this will be a huge loss for V5 in particular and LoL in general.
There are only a few days left for the 2022 LPL Summer to officially kick off. With EDward Gaming being the champion of Worlds 2021, and Royal Never Give Up having just confirmed the strength of LoL in China at MSI 2022, the LPL region is still expected to continue to defend the upcoming World Championship. However, before the tournament even started, the LPL suffered its first losses. This is in the case of the Victory Five team, specifically the Rookie Mid laner.
A few days ago, Rookie received bad news when his father passed away from illness. Need to know, Rookie had to leave Invictus Gaming urgently in the 2019 season because his father was seriously ill. At that time, IG was forced to bring in the substitute Forge instead. But at that time, the COVID-19 epidemic had not been complicated and Rookie could return as soon as the housework was over. The current situation is actually quite different.
Not only because China is experiencing a large epidemic and the government is also implementing strict epidemic control measures, but Rookie himself is probably also going through a great psychological shock when losing his father. Therefore, even if it comes back in time, it is unlikely that Rookie will be able to compete with max ping performance. But according to Rookie’s former IG teammate Ning, Rookie will definitely not be back in time to attend LPL Summer 2022. Especially since at the moment, he is still in Korea while LPL Summer 2022 will kick off. painting in less than a week.
If Rookie really can’t attend the 2022 Summer LPL, this will be a huge loss for V5 and the Chinese LoL itself. In Spring 2022, Rookie had an impressive performance. There was even a time when the Chinese audience was still waiting for the battle between him and Faker of the LCK. But now, if Rookie really has to take a break from playing for the whole Summer, then he will definitely have no chance of participating in Worlds 2022, even if V5 does win.
Moreover, Rookie was born in 1997, which means that in 2023, he will be 26 years old. This is also the age at which many players have had to put aside their careers to go on a mandatory military service in accordance with Korean law. And if Rookie really had to end his career here, it would be a huge regret, not only for him or the LPL, but for the whole world of League of Legends.
