A series of famous LPL players and streamers such as Doinb, Rookie, Uzi, etc., did not play Genshin Impact with fans as promised.
In recent years, Genshin Impact has always been one of the extremely popular games with “huge” revenue in the world. But after the last Worlds 2022, this game has become a “trend” in the international LoL community. The reason is because BeryL – the reigning World champion is a “hard fan” and has played this game throughout the tournament.
As a result, many fans joked that Genshin Impact is like a “wife buff”, which will help LoL players have “spiritual strength” and win at Worlds. So there are quite a few players in the LPL who started practicing playing this game like Doinb, Uzi, Rookie, etc. These are all famous players in LPL and have a huge fanbase watching the livestream.
But even though they had planned and scheduled to play Genshin Impact with fans, these guys still couldn’t play on the livestream as promised. Therefore, there are rumors that Tencent has banned LPL players from playing this game on livestream.
In fact, this is not the first time Tencent has banned LPL players over this issue. In the past, players like SofM often had to turn off livestreams if they wanted to play an entertaining game like Dread Hunger. Or recently, Tencent also banned LPL players from participating in Doinb’s LBL tournament. So compared to other regions, LPL players face a lot of problems if they want to livestream.
Therefore, many Chinese fans are regretting not being able to see the LPL players play the “gacha game” on the livestream. On the other hand, there are many Korean fans who are quite happy and jokingly say that BeryL will… never go abroad to compete in the LPL.
