Content of the article: "LS & Crownshot on Why DWG is so dominant and will win worlds, League and Metas, Players/Teams falling off, why Faker is insane, Mechanics and Pro view, Comparing Faker and Knights Mechanics"
LS & Crownshot have a great discussion on a lot of interesting topics that I think are worth sharing. Talk about why Damwon is so insane and will win worlds, why League of Legends is so defined by the meta and certain teams and players have certain metas they shine in, and discuss why Faker is so insane and has the best mechanics of any player. Also discuss a bit about Showmaker/Chovy and Knight in comparison to Faker mostly. Link to Vod with time stamp for this discussion at the end.
Crownshot: I am really curious why Damwon is so dominant you know
LS: Here is what I think, you know how scrim results are always different than stage, I think a lot of that is because teams on stage play naturally more reserved…. but I think what happens on stage is people take very safe approaches to laning phase and safe options, but doesn't mean these options aren't abusable. Damwon plays in a way to actively seek and punish these safe plays, which leads to a lot of these games where they get big leads and nothing happens. You can get big leads without anything happening by just out greed the opponent or by punishing over safety. But that is a very trained thing, it isn't like damwon is mind controlling rogue or anything how do they do that
Crownshot: I mean, I think they have best mid laner in the world, probably.
LS: Showmaker? Yea I think showmaker is probably the best.
Crownshot: Ya, and then you have a bottom lane that plays fine by themselves, which perfectly fits the meta right now. And top laner is probably top 2 or 3.
LS: Ya he is probably top 3 in the world
Crownshot: And they play really well around the jungle. This meta is too good for them.
LS: The meta is perfect for them, the way ghost plays, literally the stars aligned
Crownshot: The way ghost plays is perfect for 2020, completely fits them.
LS: And the way beryl plays, very good for them. This is really like stars are aligning for Damwon.
Crownshot: I have a theory or discussion point. It's very impressive Faker managed to win multiple champions and no other player could, 2018 specific meta IG won, meta changes they don't, 2019 FPX meta changes they don't even make worlds, is this just how it works? Certain players have certain metas"
LS: I mean obviously Showmaker and Chovy are insane and can probably play anything, but Faker would still make overall better decidions
LS: Faker holistically still has the best awareness of what's going on, regardless of if he successfully punishes or not. The thing about Faker is that even though people rate him lower than Showmaker Chovy, and others right now, I don't think it has to be that way. I still think he has the best mechanics out of all the mids when you watch his proview.
LS: Ya he has the best mechanics for sur
Crownshot: What do you think they do better than him at the moment, laning?
LS: Ya, laning decisions, and Fakers probably juggling a lot more because he has way more weight on him than they do in the games. I don't think Faker is done by any means…
Crownshot: It's very impressive he has the best mechanics still after so much
LS: Yeah he's sick
Crownshot: He is the only player that managed to win so much with metas changing. FPX stomp, then meta changes and don't make worlds, same thing for IG, that is the thing with league the meta changes and you can't predict if a team or player will be as good as last year, it's very specific to league.
LS: Guy in chat says "Knight's POV (mechanics) looks better than Fakers" no pro player would agree with you. Just because it looks nicer to watch doesn't mean it is better, in fact it is probably the opposite.
