After the saddening information of the modifications within the LCS and the general look of the league being pushed to the aspect for Riot’s new NA darling Valorant it has been nice to see that the LCK the Premier League scene has continued to develop and development in the correct instructions.
This week the LCK launched a number of completely different bulletins detailing the modifications for the upcoming break up all of which I see as having monumental positives for the scene as a maintain.
The primary change is merging the challenger and predominant rosters to create a singular unified roster. This idea ought to assist all rosters make extra modifications and permit for extra up-and-coming abilities the power to play within the LCK.

Groups that will likely be close to the underside of the standings may have rather more alternative to develop and showcase new expertise. This ought to be an general nice change for the league as a complete.
The second main change they introduced was the addition of double elimination into the LCK playoffs. That is big and may assist enable one of the best groups within the League to win and permit a lot fewer flukey groups. Gone are the times of automated finals for the first-place winners of the previous and the only elimination of the previous few years. Double elimination is right here and may assist create among the most enjoyable video games within the LCK. The perfect half means we’re getting extra greatest of 5 collection.
