Why did Nuguri decide to come back with the old team DWG KIA instead of choosing top names like T1 or Gen.G Esports?
As the information has been posted recently, it is very likely that top laner Nuguri will officially return to the old team DWG KIA at the 2022 Summer LCK. Not only rumors revealed in the community. , but even “the owner” has made a definite move about this comeback.
In the current context, why did Nuguri decide to choose DWG KIA instead of leading names in the LCK like T1 or Gen.G Esports. It is known that both teams are very interested in recruiting the top talented player in the LCK like Nuguri. Immediately after Nuguri decided to leave FPX to return to Korea, the “big guys” of the LCK in turn offered a “huge” contract to attract this top laner, but was rejected by Nuguri.
So there is no reason for T1 and Gen.G to abandon the Nuguri deal for the summer period. Especially when they have had a very good record last season, and their top lane is not really appreciated.
T1 is very good but Nuguri is so sorry
The first is T1, the defending champion of the LCK Spring 2022 is really a “stop” that many professional League of Legends players want to join. However, for Nuguri, joining T1 at the moment is a pretty big “bet”.
T1’s current top laner is the young talent Zeus. Initially, Zeus was not overestimated when he only played at a stable level, but the more he fought with T1 Zeus, the more he revealed his talent. The 2004 top laner has been steadily improving and increasingly showing his importance in the T1 roster.
If you have to compare with Nuguri, Zeus is really not inferior, maybe even better because Nuguri has not played professionally for a long time. Therefore, if T1 is selected as a new “stop”, Nuguri faces the risk of having to sit on the bench.
Gen.G may not have been able to meet Nuguri’s request
As for Gen.G Esports, this team has invested a lot to rebuild the squad. From blockbusters like Chovy, Peanut or Lehends to new coaches, Gen.G really spent a lot of money.
Meanwhile, Nuguri not only has the ambition to reassert his name, but this player also wants to receive a relatively “huge” contract. Therefore, there is a high possibility that Nuguri and Gen.G have not reached a financial agreement. Not to mention Gen.G also has a top laner Doran, so they will have to compete to find the main slot.
DWG KIA is the most suitable choice
In the end, only DWG KIA is the most suitable choice. Partly because DK really needs a talented top laner, and the relationship between Nuguri and DK is also very good, anyway Nuguri is still the former member who helped DK win the 2020 World Championship.
However, the biggest obstacle for DK right now is the performance of the players, especially in mid laner ShowMaker. Nuguri’s return to reunite the “monster” trio Nuguri – Canyon – ShowMaker will definitely create a strong rise of the team. That makes the competition in the 2022 Summer LCK much more attractive.
Information about LCK transfer will be updated, hope everyone will continue to watch more.
