I saw a comment that said KR didn't have much talent based off the LCQ performance so far so I had to check and I realized how little talent is currently in our own region. Japan has imported what I would consider to be around half off our 'tier 1' players, which is why the region is so weak at the moment. Our 3rd and 4th best teams could also be on the same level as DRX/DK on paper, but we are stuck with teams like Maru since these players all left for paychecks (not that I'm saying it's not the right move for them, but it's unfortunate for our scene):
Seoldam (CR - Content)
eKo (RIG - Loan)
Lakia (IGZ - Loan)
Not to mention xeta, Munchkin, and Saya all moving to NA to compete. Honestly, it's good for the players to receive support but just really sad to see for our region :(
I saw a lot of SEA fans getting pissed that KR might even get 2 slots, but you have to remember that most of these teams won't look the same. We have the talent to have more then one successful team but the players are just too spread out right now, that's why franchising will genuinely benefit our scene.
