League of Legends (LoL) mid-liner Jeong “Chobi” Jung-hoon (22-Zenji) won the first-ever official gold medal in esports at the Hangzhou Asian Games (AG) on Monday.His former nickname was the “King of the Cavalry”. Since his professional debut in 2018, he has played for DRX, Hanwha Life eSports, and other organisations, attracting attention as an ‘all-rounder’ who excels in both individual and teamwork, but he was far from winning the domestic LCK. However, after moving to Genji, he won the LCK Summer for the first time last year and won three consecutive LCK Spring and Summer titles this year, making him completely ‘irrelevant’ .Coincidentally, the player Chobi has faced on the same line in each of the last three finals is LoL esports’ GOAT (Greatest of All Time) and national team captain Lee “Faker” Sang-hyuk (27-T1).Faker and Chobi were the only two players selected in the same mid laner position in this year’s AG roster, so the competition for the starting spot was expected before the game. However, with the exception of the qualifier against Kazakhstan, where Faker started, Chobi played every major game from the quarter-finals to the final and remained at the centre of the team.In particular, in the quarter-final against China, which was seen as a de facto gold medal match, he picked off Azir in the first set to “pair” with bottom liner Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk (25-Jingdong Gaming) for the win .Faker, who is in his 10th year in the game, also earned the honour of becoming an official gold medallist in esports as a national team captain. Faker made his debut with T1 in 2013 at the age of 16 and has since won an unrivalled 10 LoL domestic championships .He has won three World Championships (Rold Cup), LoL’s biggest international event at the end of the year, and two Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) titles in the first half of the year.Faker is also the eldest brother and mentor to top laner Choi “Zeus” Woo-je (19) and support Ryu “Keria” Min-seok (21), who have been with the team since the 2021 season .The tournament also saw the emergence of Korean mercenaries Jin-hyeok “Kanavi” Seo (23-Jingdong Gaming) and Ruler, who play in the Chinese League LPL .Kanabi and Ruler play for Jingdong Gaming (JDG) as a jungler and bottom laner, respectively. At this year’s MSI, JDG won the title after defeating Korean teams T1 and Genji in successive matches and winning the final against another Chinese team, Bilibili Gaming (BLG).In the last four, they faced off against fellow mid laner Zhu “Night” Zhu Ding (23-Jingdong Gaming) for a spot in the final.After a brief moment of glory, the team will return home to their respective teams and immediately get back into preparation mode for the Rold Cup, which kicks off next month in South Korea .Chobi’s Genji is the No. 1 seed in the LCK, while Zeus-Paker-Keria’s T1 is the No. 2 seed. JDG, with Kanabi and Ruler, are also the No. 1 seed in the LPL. The 2023 Rolld Cup will kick 카지노사이트킹 off on 10 October in Seoul with a group stage match between the lower-ranked
