LCK Spring 2023 is about to start its journey on January 18 with quality and bright teams for the championship.
So the 2023 season has begun. The LCK has always been a tournament that many people are interested in in the professional League of Legends arena. In this article, let’s take a look at the top 3 candidates for the 2023 LCK Spring Championship.
T1 – The locomotive of LCK
T1 is at the top of this list which is explainable. The team owns the “Immortal Demon King” Faker – the greatest League of Legends player in history. Last year, Faker renewed his 3-year contract with T1.
In particular, this year the team still retains the same lineup of the last 2022 season. T1 has been crowned Worlds champion three times, but then they all “changed blood” in the new season despite their previous success. In this LCK Spring Season, T1 will compete for the top spot with the old players.
T1 entered the tournament with young faces. Oner, Gumayusi and Keria are all 20 years old, Zeus will be 19 at the end of January. Of course, Faker will still keep the task of being the captain leading the juniors. Although they’ve only just been together, Keria and Gumayusi have created a truly destructive bot lane last year, the key to T1’s tactical victory.
It’s a bit of a pity that Faker and T1 came very close to the fourth World Championship but had to stop before the magical Miracle Run of the DragonX players. The players have had 1 year of being teammates, so fans expect T1 to focus on developing and bringing back good achievements this season. In any way, T1 deserves to be one of the world’s leading strong teams in this 2023 season.
The team has the advantage of form, force and tradition of winning, so it is likely that the 2023 LCK Spring Split will be similar to the previous year’s scenario with T1’s dominance.
Hanwha Life Esports – The rich man is gradually returning to the LCK race
In the LCK Spring and Summer 2022, Hanwha Life Esports all lost. After Chovy’s departure, HLE fell dramatically in the 2022 season.
However, for the purpose of competing in this year’s tournament, HLE completely changed their roster. The shocking transfers in the East market all belonged to HLE. The team benefited quite a bit when DRX – the World Championship 2022 Champion decided not to keep their roster. HLE successfully recruited bright names such as Kingen Top Lane – MVP of Worlds 2022 Finals, Zeka – LCK player of the year officially joined HLE, god Tiem Viper – ADC player world champion in 2021 , Clid and Life for the Jungle and Support positions.
Possessing up to 3 world champions in the lineup, HLE is being hailed as the new generation “super team” of the LCK. The team is rated only after T1 in terms of the ability to win the LCK Spring 2023.
Dplus KIA – The process of finding yourself again
Dplus KIA (formerly known as DWG KIA) had an unsatisfactory 2022 season, making many viewers forget that the team was also a world champion.
Dplus KIA has had a decline not only in domestic tournaments but also in the international arena. Nuguri lost form, the duo Canyon – ShowMaker could not carry a team lacking depth and imbalance. After Nuguri announced his retirement, Dplus KIA added quality members, clearly showing their ambition to compete for the LCK championship.
Specifically, DK owns Deft – ADC World Championship 2022. The bottom lane of Dplus KIA – which used to be the team’s weak point, will be extremely reliable thanks to Deft’s stability and experience. In the Top lane, DK used Canna – a former T1 player to replace Nuguri.
With a quality line-up including Canyon, ShowMaker, Deft, Dplus KIA has many opportunities to touch the championship trophy this year.
Canna will have the opportunity to grow as Dplus KIA is a team that plays a lot in Top lane with support from the excellent Jungler Canyon. With these talents, DK deserves to be one of the brightest candidates for the upcoming 2023 LCK Spring Championship.
