Don’t get me wrong people. I love Chinese LoL and watch it whenever I can, but they can’t win. The Korean team must win MSI now, after IEM, in order for the good of humanity. Okay, maybe a little bit exaggerated. Team WE is not the best team in China, but a close series with EDG in the semi-finals of the LPL Playoffs renewed hope for them being the second best at IEM. If EDG wins, which is very possible, WE and lower tier Chinese teams will be viewed better than top Korean teams, an illusion. Since WE also was beat by TSM, definitely not the world’s best team, some people who have piss for brains will still think that TSM is still the best. The most inevitable line of thought will be EDG wins so they are really good, but they almost lost to the amazing WE. TSM beat WE, the Conqueror of Koreans and the Chinese Chopping Block. TSM will go out early to a team like ahq, and the TSM fan boys will say that Wildturtle couldn’t carry because he was denied a hug by Xpecial before he left, another excuse allowing them to ignore reality. If I were faced with this set of circumstances one year ago or six months ago, I would say that it would be great if an LPL team won. The Koreans must win, and it must be the Koreans to show to the plebs that the East is still better. A Chinese victory can be contorted by TSM fans, and we cannot allow that to happen. We must get some aliens to make sure that TSM does not ruin League. It would be even better if we could get them to mind control the TSM fan boys or create a proper league or tournament system to show who is really the best, but they don’t work that way. Unfortunately, we probably cannot get these aliens to do this because it goes against the Prime Directive (hear that Star Trek fans?). Maybe we humans should adopt one too. We should make sure that we don’t over hype results, draw huge conclusion with little or no evidence, and to enjoy watching professional games for being played at the highest level (TSM v.s. TL was not a high level game).
Hello, all. This would be a kind of post that I would make for reddit, but seeing how that community reacts towards “haters” on the West (I am an American currently in Chicago btw), I decided to post it here. I just hope that we can have a responsible and respectable pro scene.
