And 2 slots for a one team region like KR, I heckin love Riot on dick riding the KR :)
bro at least let DK play a map
DK will be fine, they're gonna win, imagine losing to a team like Crazy Racoon on their first LCQ match, that would be a disgrace.
nothing wrong with losing to CR lol
me wanting a slot for CN.. I need to see EDG
because KR is carrying their LOL scene in the world. even their val scene is lower than SEA, no way they would reject if DWK or T1 (if they applied to APAC) proposal if for val franchise.
I doubt he knows what he’s talking about. None of the orgs know the exact the slot representation. Even if there’s 10 slots it doesn’t make sense. They will most likely do the same strategy like in EMEA. They chose 1 org from each big country (Thai, Indo, Ph, India and MYSg) and then the rest split between JP and KR (2 for KR and 3 JP).
3 Slots For APAC And Other 7 For East Asia
nah as much as i hate this bleed guy, but i think he's might be right, the org should have a clear summary on how the franchising will be organized, at least for the team that maybe riot considering, and maybe its based on each country, but i dunno how this would go, as indonesian i want boom and onic to get the spots, but i dont think it would happen.
One of them is for oce so I guess there's 2 left then
(I think These 3 teams have higher Chances)
All this news about franchising is pure speculation and hearsay. Riot knows better than anyone which org is deserving and who is trying to bluff their way (and of course will not make it). Throwing names and numbers adds to the confusion. There is bound to be pleasant surprises and heartbreaks. STANDBY.
some speculate that xerxia wont make it tho. there are many bigger org in thai like AA, MITH and even buriram, that's why sscary considering to search for new team.
You’re delussional if you think OCE will get a slot honestly.
why not? 1 OCE slot will increase viewership more then a 3rd korea slot for example because of diminishing returns
I genuinely curious is oce have a high viewership? Not to mention if riot really want HUGE viewership then they will give the slot to India or indonesia instead of OCE
nah OCE doesn't have high viewership. I imagine they give 1 to oce and 1 to india. I'm not saying OCE has higher viewership, I'm saying that because if korea has 2 teams in, then a third isn't gonna bring more viewership since people who watch because they are korean already gonna be watching. Its about a marginal decrease in viewership
What does he means that SEA has 3 slots? Because I heard APAC has 10 totals.
ASIA Has 10 Slots Not APAC
I mean in 2021 when Korea, Japan, Sea are still joined together, the scene is called APAC. So maybe in 2023 the name will be called back as APAC not ASIA
so i assume 2 JP, 2 KR, 6 APAC (1 or 2 Oce)?
3KR + 3JP +1 OCE from the journalists news/leaks we have . That leaves 3 for SEA + India .
What journalist leaks said that?
You can follow Bodork and Seulgi for news related to APAC.
You’re talking about the same Bodork who said PWR are favourites for the OCE slot when they didn’t even make the first phase of application? Do you not understand most of these jabronis are just talking ouf of their ass?
His original list, which was majority his opinion, also had Griffin and Fancy United making it and people took it like it was 100% confirmed
Never in my life i wanted someone to be more wrong about this info.I hope hes wrong i dont ever want this to happen either . Monyet crying after losing vid made me cry and made me think what will happen to them ahead . 3 for SEA + India is beyond fucked.
3 kr 3 jp LMAO wtf riot
drx and damwon are basically guaranteed. the third slot is going to either geng or t1 if riot does decide to give another slot.
what has korea ever done to merit 3 spots? 2 is already a bit eh, and geng/t1 are in na and i dont think they have plans to move to a worse region
riot wants orgs that will invest a lot and stay financially well like 8 years down the line and the korean orgs fit that criteria well compared to others. performance doesn't matter for franchising. geng didn't make the final stage of na franchising but did for apac/kr so its likely they move.
I saw this as well and watching Monyet cry after his loss broke my heart . What will happen to all the other pros who put so much time into the game. Only 15 players from all of SEA + India is so unfair . Just when we thought our region is finally growing and seeing the passion of these pros only for this to happen .
CRY HAHAHAHHA GET FUCKED LOSER
u guys didn't even deserve 3 slots, 2 at max, only DRX and maybe Damwon. should be 2 JP 2 KR, maybe 1 CN and 5 APAC including INDIA and OCE
Lets see who will cry after Korea does not bring in viewership for Valorant in these next 4 years and we see teams like Damwon, Maru and Onslayers loosing to debuting teams in LCQ while DRX chokes internationals.
tbh korea will definitely prosper under franchising especially when a lot of korean players from na/japan will come back with the asian league being rumored to be held in seoul idk why you would think that.
We’ll get more super teams since Gen.G are coming back and KR/JP tend to do well against SEA when they play, so I think they’ll be fine in this league
Nah this is just dumb but if he just meant SEA 3 slots than its kinda okay , but eh if this is true than we will see more than half of japanese orgs in leauge lol + yeah no org have much info as things are confidential
thats fair, you also need to get japan who have 10 times more viewership than apac, korea, china and ideally also oceania
SEA barely got any big orgs
team secret, talon, who else? Bleed? Bleed lots of money but not established at all.
I think the sadest part is china might not even get one spot lol
