In the history of League of Legends (LoL), the LCK region is home to the most world championship titles (7 times). Even at the 2022 World Finals, which just ended not long ago, the LCK region contributed to 3 teams in the semifinals.
That shows the huge difference in level between the LCK region and the rest of the world. Even the LPL teams could not stop the Korean representatives from going deep at the last 2022 Worlds.
After monitoring the transfer market after Worlds 2022, experts also believe that the LCK region will continue to show its dominance. Besides the stars, many teams in the LCK choose to trust the young talents they have trained. These young players promise to make the LCK tournament extremely attractive and highly competitive.
“I think the LCK tournament will outperform other regions in terms of attractiveness and competition in the 2023 season. Teams like DK, T1, Gen.G will definitely still be extremely worthy names. HLE shows itself as a ‘new giant’ when recruiting Viper and many other stars. Besides, the young players who are about to debut in the LCK are also extremely qualified,” BLV Chronicler told Inven. Global.
One of the strengths of the LCK region is that they always have generations of talented young players to inherit the legacy of their stars. We have seen generations of Viper, Lehends, Tarzan or more recently Oner, Zeus shine brightly in international arenas. Hopefully in the new season, the next young players of the LCK like Peyz, Delight… will be able to express themselves and help the LCK region reach new heights.
