In the first days of the new year, but VCS fans had to “split the year” because of the drama between EGO and Zeros. On one side, the EGO is constantly attacked because of the messages released by Zeros related to the fact that the CERBERUS Esports player asked Zeros to make up a story, using SofM to “donate” from fans, and then EGO “notice” to come to EGO. Yijin’s lover… On the EGO side, this player locked his personal Facebook account but still opened Instagram and still maintained the stories of reacting to Zeros.
The post “exploiting” EGO of Zeros and even SofM, Yijin… was also mentioned in the drama.
But after the drama has calmed down, the consequences of this incident are not small at all. Although it did not violate any rules of VCS and no one is 100% sure that Zeros was correct or that EGO was a “victim”, it can be said that this drama is no different from a “self-destruct” screen of the player. on the payroll of CES.
Destroy your self image
First, as a professional player, EGO didn’t behave in the “gentle, professional” personality that fans have long thought of him. Despite being advised by many seniors in the profession, and the manager of CES himself also advised EGO to keep quiet and let him solve it, this player still responded with public posts on social networks and on stories. And yet, according to the evidence given by Zeros, EGO was silent when the former SBTC Esports star suggested contacting for a amicable settlement. Even senior RonOP could not contact EGO at that time.
Zeros accused EGO of being silent when the former SE star proposed to settle the matter smoothly, but RonOP, EGO’s teammate, could not be contacted.
This is clearly an extremely powerful “self-destruct” stage of EGO. While it is possible that later on, EGO or other stakeholders confirm that this player is not like Zeros exposed, no one will think of him as the quiet, career-focused player like before the drama broke out. again. Even many fans liken EGO to former GAM player Kriss Kyle when he is also famous for his spam status rife on his personal page, but few people understand what he is writing.

Now when it comes back, EGO will definitely be the most mentioned name in all CES matches. At the age of 22, the player himself has never faced such a serious drama. And most likely, his own career is also in jeopardy when now, in addition to the opponents, the men who have to overcome, in addition to the dream of equaling SofM which is gradually fading away, EGO also has to face pressure. huge from the audience.
From a highly-anticipated player, EGO has ruined all the reputations it’s built for so long
Next, is the impact on the image of CES. Needless to say, when the main player gets involved in dramas like this, the management team is naturally involved in the responsibility. CES was still quite slow in handling the case and in the CES post, many fans also continued to criticize EGO.
And one important thing, EGO can be considered as the most important factor of CES in the victory of VCS Winter 2021. It was EGO that made Levi face many difficulties in 3 confrontations and set the stage for the victory. Artemis, Yado, Pun shine. Almost certainly, CES will not be able to recklessly let EGO compete right away, in the immediate future at the SEA Games 31 qualifiers in the next few days. And once there is no EGO, or EGO no longer has the confidence and performance as before, CES will face many difficulties when the jungle is still a very important position for a team to operate the gameplay as smoothly as possible.
CES speaks out about the incident of EGO
And maybe even Vietnamese League of Legends
It is a fact that since the time of SofM, Levi, and VCS, there is almost no stable forest anymore. From Meliodas to most recently BeanJ. These players are talented but haven’t kept their form throughout. But throughout the ages, the forest has always been a very important position. And the lack of a stable forest, especially when Levi has also started to step to the other side of the slope of his career, is really a headache for Vietnamese LoL fans.
Levi has also started to step on the other side of the slope of his career, but in VCS there is still not a single jungler to replace him.
And then EGO emerged as a name that can be considered the best successor to Levi or SofM. He has won 2 VCS championships in his career and excellent performances, before the veteran jungler Levi himself. And until the drama, EGO was considered the one who would threaten Levi and GAM Esports’ SEA Games 31.
But now, everything can be considered as over. Unless EGO overcomes the pressure and plays well. But as mentioned above, certainly CES will not risk bringing EGO to competition. And if after this incident, EGO can’t return, it can only be blamed on this player for “self-destructing” too strongly, leading to the consequences that the person who suffers is no longer just him.
But now, it will be difficult for EGO to be considered as the successor to Levi, after the recent “self-destruction”.
