After veteran help participant CoreJJ supplied his ideas on the potential of North American groups in skilled League of Legends, one other member of Team Liquid has supplied his personal perception.
In a latest stream, Team Liquid high laner Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau added his private sentiments to the continuing dialog concerning the worldwide efficiency of Western groups in comparison with Eastern groups in League. Bwipo pinpointed a lot of this battle to gamers as people, saying that many of them are lacking key parts that assist them coordinate with a group.
“I feel like what is missing in NA culture is personal accountability…and that people struggle envisioning what their role is responsible for doing in the game,” Bwipo defined on stream. “Personally, I think that the way a great League of Legends team works is by having five individual players that play their roles very well, and play their part in the game. What that part exactly is depends on the draft and the players you have.”
The high laner continued to debate the influence of individual affect in League, declaring that when gamers really feel they’ll do greater than they really can, it typically backfires and turns into detrimental to the group. Yet Bwipo took the time to acknowledge that many gamers flourish offstage; he believes that specializing in the unhealthy factors takes away from highlighting nice performs, thus making gamers really feel that they haven’t improved.
“Players, when they are playing poorly and getting carried, they don’t spend enough effort to make the people that are carrying feel good about that,” Bwipo stated. “I also don’t think there’s enough focus on that from a staff perspective—though that’s just speculation.”
Bwipo acknowledged that these points plagued Team Liquid all through most of this 12 months, regardless of the group showing to be one of the strongest within the LCS on paper. Fans expressed disappointment on the group’s efficiency throughout numerous components of the 12 months as a result of caliber of the gamers on the roster, many of whom have been veterans with expertise throughout a number of areas.
Liquid ended each the Spring and Summer Splits on the high of the standings, although they have been in the end unable to win a playoff or qualify for this 12 months’s World Championship. Since not qualifying, the group has undergone huge structural modifications, saying the departure of mid laner Bjergsen and ADC Hans sama. The future of Bwipo, Santorin, and CoreJJ stays unsure.
