Gen.G’s Chovy on shouldering Korean first seed expectations, who has the edge in LPL vs. LCK rivalry

There are fewer situations in esports where more expectations are levied on one’s shoulders than when you’re Korea’s number seed at the League of Legends World Championship. The game’s tditionally strongest region often sends its top team internationally with the full expectation of coming home with the Summoner’s Cup in tow. 

Historically, the top seed out of Korea has always been viewed as a (if not, the) tournament favorite at Worlds, and this year, the situation is no different. Gen.G, who won LCK Summer in historically dominant fashion, are a widespread choice to win it all.
