The jungle star born in 1998 has yet to say a word about a new destination in the 2023 season.
After six consecutive years of touring China since Summer 2016, this will be the first time SofM has not played in the LPL. Although not officially spoken, many reputable sources confirm that the 24-year-old player is looking to try at VCS 2023 and is still considering many options. SofM has stayed in Vietnam for more than two months to visit his family, prepare for the important things of his life, be quiet, and invest in business with many cherished projects… Not only that, he also wants to change his mood. the atmosphere in the professional League of Legends career spanning nearly a decade.
Chinese media reported that negotiations between SofM and LPL organizations did not come to an agreement after not renewing the contract with Weibo Gaming that expired on November 22. It led to him staying in his hometown to compete in the last leg of his career. Sohu news site even explains the reason for the decision of the player born in 1998. Specifically, the number one League of Legends tournament in China always appreciates the ability of the person who has received countless individual titles in the 2020 season – including Best Player, Best Foreign Player, and Best Jungler.
Not only experts but also the Chinese community acknowledge SofM. That’s why there is information that the Vietnamese player is the one who receives the most “huge” salary in the role of the LPL jungler, surpassing many “homegrown” names and even Korea. With such a big name, the price paid to get SofM’s signature is not small – completely different from when he came to LPL six years ago. Therefore, mid-range organizations and below had to withdraw from the negotiation table because they did not have enough economic potential to bring SofM back.
In the opposite direction, the top LPL organizations have been looking to other junglers for the 2023 season. They are afraid that the style of play that likes to cause mutations, self-carrying that has become a trademark of SofM will become the son of SofM. double-edged sword. The peak period saw SofM flourish with Suning and reach the 2020 World Finals with this way of playing.
But when his form was no longer maintained, he made many mistakes and was unable to bring Suning or Weibo Gaming to Worlds twice in a row. Finally, Sohu commented that SofM herself also wants to return home to have the conditions and time to take care of and nurture her own home. He himself also wants to try more in the international arena and VCS will be a more suitable destination for him to satisfy.
While the parties involved have not yet issued any official announcement regarding the squad, the WBG has eliminated the pair of head coach Maizijian and coach Eimy. There are currently rumors that WBG will use a lineup of TheShy, Karsa, Xiaohu, Light and Crisp in the 2023 LPL Spring. The future of SofMs and former teammates including Angel, huanfeng and ON is in question. great. Things became even more confusing when this morning (December 8), VCS English confirmed that SofM and Shogun did not join Team Whales.
“There have been a lot of inaccurate rumors about the future of these two players. However, after researching and confirming with sources, VCS English would like to refute the above rumors at the present time. We will update more information when there are new developments” – Facebook fanpage updating prestigious news of the highest level of League of Legends tournament in Vietnam countered the information given by BLV Duc Manh and former coach Tinikun in the evening. past (December 7).
No matter what, SofM will have to quickly find a new destination because the 2023 season is approaching. And as the future wife said, I hope everyone respects the upcoming decision of the most famous and successful League of Legends player in Vietnamese history up to the present time.
