Besides the race to the top of the LPL Spring 2022, fans of this tournament also have another concern as to when will Uzi return. The reason is because despite being announced to join Bilibili Gaming, in the past few weeks, Doggo has been the main player instead of Uzi. Even this young player performed extremely well and made Uzi’s return to the LPL even more distant.
Uzi has signed a contract with BLG but hasn’t played a minute in the previous 4 weeks
However, Bilibili Gaming recently surprised the audience when they suddenly brought Uzi back in the match against Invictus Gaming yesterday (February 17). Even after returning, Uzi had many shining situations to help BLG avoid a white defeat, even have a chance to defeat the opponent. However, on a day when the young players on the IG side played too well, Uzi could not help but watch the home team lose the match with a score of 1-2.

It’s true that in this match, Uzi didn’t play bad at all as he coordinated well with Crisp and created a solid bot lane for BLG. However, that was not enough when BLG’s Mid – Jungle duo had a really ineffective day, especially in Fofo’s Mid lane position. For example, in the decisive game 3, this guy even played an extremely safe champion, Orianna, but let his opponent solo kill. Even in the late game, Fofo was defeated but his ultimate was still intact.

Obviously, with the failure of Uzi on such a comeback, Fofo and partly Jungler WeiWei received a lot of criticism from the audience. Not stopping there, the way Uzi’s former teammate Letme was chosen when watching this match also raised big question marks about Fofo’s selection when he thought that Viktor and Orianna were not suitable for the squad that BLG is currently playing. Yes.
Needless to say, the fact that Doggo has played since the beginning of the season has made the members of BLG somewhat familiar with how to operate this squad. So when replacing Uzi, a star too big, into the squad, it is inevitable that other players have not adapted in time. The highlight in BLG’s match yesterday was that Uzi still played extremely well and did not show that he was “out of meta” at all.

The lucky thing for BLG is that in the next 2 matches they only have to meet weak teams like Anyone’s Legend or Team WE. This is a good opportunity for them to get used to playing with Uzi to prepare for the extremely tense top 6 and top 4 race at the end of the upcoming group stage.
