League of Legends: Piglet Benched


#1

WOW

I mean i know his showing in the LCS was poor til now but i figured that he had a couple more games in him until he got into the swing of things.

They totally threw him to the wolves though, a change to location, roster, LANGUAGE…they should have had him on the bench, training with the team longer before putting him on the field. Can’t complain about their go-to choice though, KIETH had an amazing showing in the opening week.

Sucks to be a pro-player in e-sports atm, though I guess it is amazing to actually utter that phrase. Who would have guessed 20 years ago that e-sports would even BE a thing. Amazing time to be a gamer and lover of competitive games.

I saw this, and not gonna lie, i wasn’t very surprised by the decision. It sucks, but its a competition and if you don’t show up to play, you get benched. It’s pretty unfortunate though, he had alot going agenst him.


#3

totally agree, overall I think it was a bad decision to bank on him simply from a “he was in WORLDS!” point. KIETH meshed with the team in a great way, he played VERY well and was mechanically skilled. It will only benefit them to play this out.


#4

Yeah and that’s the thing, they weren’t going for a player that meshed they were going for the “best” player they could get, or so they thought.


#5

With the TSM vs CLG game the other day, this season is shaping up well. CLG totally threw that game though, I couldn’t believe some of the plays they were pulling. Bronze level, single file, walk in and die plays.
