News has started just a few minutes ago. MICHAEL MIKE Merle stops being on the bench of g2 esports and tab for excel esports . The British club, after a lifetime outside the playoffs in the maximum European competition of League of Legends, has decided to make a movement that has made the foundations of LEC itself.
It is no longer that it is a Blockbuster, as Americans call this type of transfer, but it is a movement that brings a lot of controversy... although paradoxically buried the story of the G2 jail, term popularly used for Talk about these starfish to the wait for someone to pay the requested money. As the case of Maxwell, for example.
And the reason is that this movement expels from five holders to Hank Adrienne Rajendra, a bet of late season that this year had received the gallons of the team along with Jungle Mark Maroon Van Counsel. But after two weeks and five games, he leaves the team with a very young Twit longer.
LEC is a zero-sum game
If there is a group of people that I consider practically some envoys from the gods, it is those who create table games and run their rules. It seems extremely complicated, because not only is that you have to give with some precepts, a way of winning and one of losing, but all this has to be fun. The latter can be applied to video games, but they have the physical interactions that are limited to playing cards on a board, or moving your file.
But another equally interesting area is the theory of games , a branch of mathematics that seeks to define the models behind all kinds of fun. And one of the divisions that can be made, is that if a game is of zero-sum or sum listing zero. To explain to us: Poker is a zero-sum game, because the one who wins takes another one who has lost another; While football can be a very zero-sum game, because in the draws, 2 points are distributed, while in the victories the winner takes 3.
LEC is a zero-sum game . The teams are divided by victories and defeats, so that one is champion, has to win maps that the rest has lost. In other words, so that other teams have been in playoff during these last years, others as Excel have had to lose... and a lot.
said in another way: this will win
Since its entry in LEC in 2019, Excel has remained out of playoffs for 3 consecutive years , or what is the same, for 6 seasons. This means not having ever been among the six best of a ten team competition. During this time we have had the best G2 in history, Reckless has gone from Fanatic and now Militia in the French League, and origin became astral is. In all that time, Excel has tried many things, like signing veterans, picking young people to develop them and even give the keys of the club someone with all the pedigree at the time as Joey Young buck steltenpool.
And nothing has worked . The team continues without reaching that promised land that are the playoffs and either convince at the brand level, being the team with fewer followers on Twitter of the ten that make up the competition, at least whether we eliminate the newcomer BDS from the equation, and If we consider that the Astral is account for its League of Legends section open a few months ago does not entirely represent the club and its brand.
It's time to face something that I already said at the time and that you can read at the link above. We have no idea of the internal processes of a team and something could have happened with Adrienne. It does not seem because her bootlegger is quite Astor, despite highlighting her disapproval regarding as he has been treated. Nor do we know why Excel did not make this change during the signing market, or because it did not also sign Reckless, already posts, if they wanted veteran talent and proven effectiveness.
Maybe it's that now the price of Mike is much lower than having started the season, maybe it's now he's willing to play in Excel and a month ago No, or maybe I just need to see playing his companions to get you to compete again. Or it would also make sense that the team, despite starting with a worth 2-3, has pressed the staff from the investment plane to get results right now.
And since we do not know, we can only reflect on the facts. And the main fact here is that they have changed to a good player, with a positive performance on how little seasonal, and with an important projection, for a generational talent, one of the best supports of the history of European competition and Someone with experience at raids. Another issue is the ethical issue, in which safely have done very bad things.
In that change, Excel wins . Win because, although League of Legends has long been shown to us that group dynamics are very significant, it also jumps at sight from many seasons that Excel loses many games for the lack of determining talent. Despite achieving good early games, or fighting well in certain Team fights, they missed some forcefulness to win that additional map that would take them to the post-season. Foot de lol esports.
