Without winning any wins in the 2022 Summer LPL Group Stage, Team WE has become the second name in the history of Chinese League of Legends to set a record white losing streak after Victory Five.
The group stage of LPL Summer 2022 has officially ended with a lot of variables and surprises, besides the decline of the World Champion EDward Gaming, the instability of Weibo Gaming, or the “comeback” ” of the old forces such as Top Esports and JD Gaming… the group stage also witnessed another remarkable highlight, which is the case of Team WE.
With a 0-2 loss to Ultra Prime in the final round, Team WE officially ended the 2022 Summer LPL group stage campaign with a 0-16 difference, lost 16 matches and, of course, failed to win. a win in Bo3 pairs. In more detail, this team only won 7 games and lost 32 games during the last season.
This “achievement” has brought Team WE into the history of the Chinese League of Legends tournament, becoming the second name after Victory Five, setting a record losing streak in a season, with 16 defeats. (V5 twice “set a record” of 0-16 in the 2020 LPL Spring and 2021 Summer LPL).
However, compared to V5’s record, WE’s “heavy” milestone just set this summer really makes LoL fans in China feel a lot more “painful”. Not only is the oldest team of the Chinese League of Legends, Team WE is also considered a “national” team, possessing a stature and influence in the public that is even greater than that of RNGs or EDGs in the world. their peak period.
Not only that, WE is also one of the names that have won the LPL championship (Spring 2017). As a former king of Chinese League of Legends, the fact that this team has fallen to the point of becoming one of the two names with the worst record in Chinese LoL history, is truly an event that leaves a lot of regret for the team. fan.
One of the reasons why WE fell so miserably, is probably because the team’s somewhat outdated operating strategy, along with that is the truth in the “money war” with the worlds. other emerging forces. In recent years, WE has not owned any blockbuster contracts, not only that, this team also does not focus on youth training, and as a result, WE’s lineup in the LPL. Summer 2022 gathers all mid-level players, or stars that are out of time, such as Shanks, BiuBiu, Beishang, Smlz, View…
With a low-quality squad, WE is completely inferior to almost every opponent on the rankings, and the outcome of 0 – 16 seems to be what was expected from the moment the 2022 LPL Summer officially started.
