In the transfer window at the end of the 2021 season, the League of Legends village has witnessed a number of notable comebacks of “old men” who seemed to have ended their careers completely, like Bjergsen or Uzi. However, Uzi struggled to find a main slot at Bilibili Gaming. As a result, “Super ADC” ended the season as soon as BLG entered the playoffs. But there’s no denying: the older players have had a pretty good Spring 2022, especially names like Faker, Bjergsen, Rookie…
Rookie and Faker are 2 of the “olds” who had a successful Spring
And recently, there is some information that “old generals” like Ning, Icon… are also moving back. There are even rumors that the former 2018 World Championship champion has found a team and is practicing. Many fans also said that Ning’s results are quite good and that he can find a new team in the near future. However, recently, on the stream channel, Doinb flatly denied this idea. According to LNG Esports Mid Lane, players who are too old or take a long break will have a hard time making a comeback in the Summer.
Ning is also coming back
“Currently the LPL market is quite bleak and the teams don’t have a good income, so it affects the salaries of the players. So most teams don’t think of the “old men”. players from LDL, the transfer price and salary of longtime players are obviously higher, so in this Summer, it is even harder for the “olds” to return. Basically, no team wants to. accept the old general.” – Doinb said.
Doinb asserts that the “old men” have almost no back door, at least this Summer
Doinb’s argument is completely valid. At the present time, China is still fighting the pandemic. Many events in China in general and the LPL in particular are also being affected by the epidemic. Therefore, it is not unreasonable for teams to implement austerity policies. Moreover, most of the teams have stabilized their forces. The team is starting to have a good connection and no one will dare to risk creating disturbances that can affect the performance in the upcoming Summer Split.
