TES created a fever in the Chinese League of Legends and international media because of the seismic loss to RGE.
The last day of the first leg of the group stage recorded a big shock from Top Esports. The LPL runner-up fell before the formidable power of RGE. From the underrated name, the king of Europe destroyed DRX and TES respectively and dominated Group C.
As for TES, the team has brought home 2 consecutive defeats and is struggling at Worlds 2022. And immediately, the team created a strong wave of controversy in the LPL community. The two good domestic seasons are not as hot as the current bad team.
In China, TES is constantly on the hot search Weibo, the brightest social network. Even on October 11, RGE, the team destroyer, became the focus of the LPL community. Not stopping there, many names in the League of Legends world also spoke about the loss from TES.
LPL female MC Hilda thinks TES makes too many mistakes and doesn’t understand what happened to the team. Meanwhile, Rita, the top female caster in the tournament, was also bewildered by the defeat of the Chinese representative of LoL. “RGE beat TES, couldn’t sleep,” she said. And yet, caster MacT also gave up before the loss from TES: “TES succeeded in giving me a heart attack”.
More importantly, the international LoL community was also surprised by the performance from the LPL runner-up. LoL Esports homepage on Twitter shared “A big win for RGE against TES”. Not only that, Esports journalist Thorin expressed his gratitude to the knight for playing badly in front of RGE: “Thank you brother, knight”. And the LEC homepage is overjoyed: “The Age of Rogue”.
In addition, TES appeared in many Chinese newspapers. All of them emphasize the weakness of the home team. In fact, with such a performance, the LPL runner-up deserves criticism. But after all, TES is still half way to improving results. And the team needs to fix mistakes, absorb ideas to improve.
