More than 35 million viewers live on Huya and top 1 trending Weibo, Uzi is likened to the “box office star” of LPL Spring 2022.
Considered one of the symbols of the League of Legends world and a monument of the Chinese LPL, so far Uzi has had a huge fan base in the country of billions of people. Looking back more than 2 years ago, Uzi made the sad decision to retire to treat hand injuries and many other conditions.
At the beginning of the 2022 season, Uzi shocked the LPL community when he decided to return to play League of Legends in the colors of Bilibili Gaming (BLG). But since the beginning of the season, BLG’s main AD carry is Doggo.
Until today, when Doggo had an unimpressive performance in game 1 against Invictus Gaming, Uzi played in game 2. The “comeback” of this hit marksman set a record in viewership in LPL Spring 2022.
According to statistics, after 895 days away from the professional arena, the first match when Uzi came back attracted more than 35 million people watching live on the Huya platform. Many people “mentalize” that if other platforms are added, the peak number will not be less than 40 million live viewers.
Not only that, the news of Uzi’s return to LPL also reached the top 1 trending on Weibo platform – China’s largest social network.
Regarding the performance of the day back, despite losing 2-1 to Invictus Gaming, but Uzi also played very impressively and brought himself a beautiful Triple Kill to flip the bet in game 2. Although it is not known if Uzi has can continue to play and compete in the next matches or not, but the appearance of this gunner is making the LPL extremely “burnt” both on and off the competition stage.
