Throughout its history, League of Legends has always had names whose fame, talent and achievements have been imprinted in the minds of the audience as well as forming immortal monuments of the MOBA game. citizen”. These include players like Faker, Uzi, Bengi, Doublelift, Bjergsen…
Faker – the monument of League of Legends, his name is also associated with the development history of this national game
These names have all gone through many ups and downs in their careers, but it can be said that League of Legends would no longer be League of Legends, without them. Especially “Demon King” Faker – whose name has gone beyond an ordinary Esports game and become a world-class celeb, as T1 CEO himself once commented.
But the flow of League of Legends will still not stop flowing and the names above will have to “hang up the keyboard” when age no longer allows them to compete professionally. So once Faker, Uzi… are no longer playing, who will be responsible enough to become new faces, representing the League of Legends? This is also the question that the international media asked to 5 famous players of the LoL village: Tarzan (LNG Esports), Chovy and Ruler (Gen.G Esports), ShowMaker (DWG KIA) and Fudge (Cloud9).
Pro players point out names that could become the future of League of Legends
Of the choices given by the players, Canyon was the most chosen, by 3 out of 5 names being Chovy, ShowMaker and Tarzan. Despite being relatively young, Canyon already has almost everything a professional player dreams of. He won the World Championship 2020, won the LCK 2021 and the LCK Summer 2020. The only title he is missing is MSI when DK lost to Royal Never Give Up in the finals of the last 2021 season.
Canyon is also considered one of the best junglers of all time. He possesses a creative fighting style, always knows how to balance resources for the whole team, playmaker for DK besides ShowMaker. Not to mention being one of the rare players that still maintains top form even after winning Worlds. And moreover, Canyon’s ability to coordinate with ShowMaker makes this the best jungle-mid pair in the world. Although DK has changed a lot of personnel now, they certainly still have many hidden surprises, as long as Canyon and ShowMaker are still side by side.
Canyon is the most comprehensive and excellent jungler in LoL today
Meanwhile, Fudge chose Chovy and the “golden spine of the LCK” himself chose ShowMaker. These are 2 options that can be considered quite understandable. Chovy and ShowMaker are two of the best mid laners in the LCK today. And both, especially ShowMaker, are expected to prolong the era of LCK dominance in the LoL village. But in the end, ShowMaker and DK were completely empty-handed in the two international tournaments that this team attended despite reaching the finals.
In the new season, both ShowMaker and Chovy will have new teammates. There will be difficulties for them on their journey, but the fans of these two players hope they will overcome all and shine as they really are.
Chovy and ShowMaker, who will be the face of the future of League of Legends?
The most surprising of these was Ruler’s choice. Accordingly, instead of choosing his teammate at Gen.G to be Chovy, Ruler considered RNG’s GALA to be the name that could become the future of League of Legends. As Ruler explained, he was very interested in the ADC positions. Back in the day, he was very interested in Uzi – the legend of RNG as well as of the LPL. And when Uzi retired, GALA was expected to follow in the footsteps of his senior, so Ruler paid the most attention to this player.

GALA is the brightest name in the finals of LPL Spring 2021, making a great contribution to destroying FunPlus Phoenix and bringing RNG to MSI 2021. In the tournament in Iceland, GALA also performed well and together with RNG defeated the home team. Champion of Worlds 2020 DK. And in the match against EDward Gaming in the Quarterfinals of Worlds 2021, GALA was not inferior to Viper, even though RNG failed with a score of 2-3.
GALA shines in the final of LPL Spring 2021
GALA is only 20 years old and still very young with a whole career ahead of her. In the last transfer window of the 2021 season, RNG added Bin and Xiaohu to return to mid. In the new season, GALA will definitely join these two as the three most important names, determining the ability to win the title of the upcoming RNG.
Notably, none of the 5 players questioned chose names from EDG – the 2021 World Championship champion. Last season can be considered a historic season for this team as well as their players. And despite keeping the same squad in the last transfer window, EDG was not appreciated. Many fans are still worried that this team will follow in the footsteps of the previous two Worlds champions from the LPL, Invictus Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix.
And not a single name from EDG was chosen
However, things have not started yet and it is all speculation. And most likely, not any of the names above, or any of the EDG players, will be Huanfeng, Ale, Bin… or some unexpected name, but surely the answer will be. only in the near future.
