Up to the present time, the representatives LCS Has played 6 group stage matches Worlds 2020, they win 1 and lose 5. Although they know that “will not be the year”, but clearly the job League of Legends North America has barely made any progress in the past several years, which has left their fans hot eyes.
LS – LCK English channel commentator and also one of the longtime names working in the LCS, could not contain his anger after seeing Team Liquid lose to Suning helplessly, and it is he who has sparked a wave of public opinion when revealing the heavenly truth behind the “embarrassing” achievement of the North American League of Legends region in recent years:
“The number of NA’s stinging problems since its inception is far above an alarming threshold. Ugly and disgusting stories are always behind the scenes, typically the players who always refuse scrims with young stars from academy teams, out of fear that young talents will progress and take their place in the main roster.None cares about that, and crazy stuff. turned out to be valid. “
Next, LS retweeted FionnOnFire’s post – ESPN reporter, citing the average salary of LCS players is 400,000 USD / year (about 9.3 billion VND), but no one player showed. I deserve that money.
Referring to FionnOnFire, LS also made a fierce judgment on this issue:
“A salary is too high for what they show. Organizations need to implement restructuring and maintain a more suitable salary structure. Importance of foreign soldiers must also be considered to be right.” direction […]”
In fact, the LS shares are completely grounded. For many years, LCS has not produced any bright young talent with enough stature to replace the position of Bjergsen, Doublelift now Sneaky. Tactical or Stikxay are probably the rare cases raised by the Academy team and got good results, but they clearly haven’t shown the qualities of big stars.

The quality of the LCS’s aging staff makes the region quipped as a “nursing home,” and apart from its past peaks for indigenous veterans, North America’s foreign recruiting policy isn’t quite. Even better, when most of the players from outside the region came to this tournament for no retirement purposes, it was also because they no longer held their position in the region they previously played in.
As a result, as we all know, the LCS continues to face the risk of going through another Worlds in failure (and most likely Doublelift will not get married). Seeing how Bjergsen – the region’s leading mid laner, almost playing with the machine using Syndra to farm troops from start to finish in the opening match against Fnatic, is enough to understand the North American gaming mindset how outdated and stagnant.
Bjergsen’s skills are fine, but his gaming mindset also seems to be out of date and is no longer keeping up with the dynamic meta of Worlds.
However, as LS has assessed, it seems that both the players and the League of Legends organizations in NA are showing quite indifferent, because despite playing badly at Worlds over the years, the LCS stars still enjoy. The salary was staggeringly high, while the organizations didn’t seem to lack the money and the reputation that they felt a crisis when their team left right from the group stage.
