League of Legends: 4 different views between Esports and Amateur gamers (part 1)
There are a few views that professional LoL is completely different from the game we play every day and it is not baseless.
Esports teams hate how Riot updates games
Listening to it is quite normal, isn’t it because anyone doesn’t complain when Riot Games updates a certain version? However, for proplayers, what they hate the most about Riot Games’ update is doing it too often. It is true that this makes LoL always fresh and many styles are born. But it also has a very negative effect on professional gamers.
With pro teams, they not only train like 5 single players, they train like a team with many different types of teams. It is very normal to have tactics and cards that they practice in secret to compete with their opponents.
However, unfortunately, Riot has a new nerf that weighs a lot in the team, or changes the champion’s gameplay, so does all the training effort go away. Therefore, proplayers hate the density of 2 weeks 1 copy as currently.
Proplayers learn after every game, regardless of winning or losing
Returning to the purpose of playing League of Legends, that’s winning. Amateur gamers will often find ways to achieve this, such as pushing, picking champions or countering opponents. However, for professional gamers, winning sometimes does not mean much, the most valuable thing after each game with them is learning something.
When professional gamers practice, they not only play pure LoL but have a lot of things to do like reviewing replays of the match, learning the theory of the squad or analyzing what to draw after each game.
Everyone from the players, coaches, analysts contributes to this stage. They only talk about League, the things they learn and gradually raise their level. Therefore, regardless of winning or losing, these are the real valuable lessons for each player.
