    Hope you guys enjoyed this little movie/documentary about MikeYeung and his amazing story. If it wasn't abundantly clear from the tone and writing of this video, I just want to say there are no ill intentions towards him. I wanted to bring light to his story only to say that I wish the best for him. I want to see him succeed! Thanks for watching and let me know your thoughts :)

      My thoughts is that he was born in the wrong region if he was born in a region like EU where their junglers are put on high micro champs like lee and so on. He would probably still be on a pro team.

    Hes a great soloQ player but man was legit like a 3 trick pony or something, i don't know what TSM were thinking by signing him, maybe shortsightedness by failing to see League evolving towards a more flexible draft focused game? I dunno

    I think the problem with TSM junglers is that they are probably told to play, but without making it look like Bjergsen needs help. It's kinda like Messi in soccer. Everyone needs to play to make Messi look good, and that is bad for the other players.

  • Phsycres Conquest
    Phsycres Conquest

    I think that having Ryu, one of the most stable(as in consistent) mids throughout his career. Where as Soren “Bjergsen” Bjerg is a midlaner that needs to be babyied. Mikeyeung in my opinion works a lot better with the consistent midlaner that doesn’t need to be babyied. A recent Example if this is Akaadian. Akaadian is very much the same and look where he is now. TSM refuse to use SoloQ style Carry junglers. They want to be like Faker and Bengi. The problem is that Faker till about 2018 was very consistent and could get ahead off of a cancelled auto attack. Which allowed bengi to thrive on champs like Lee and that One hit wonder of a Nidalee game

    In what way TSM a slightly below average team playoffs all 5 splits, 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 5th, a single game off of making 3/4 international tournaments? Also blaming TSM for misusing him when Mithy had to learn jungle to teach him how to play the game? yikes

  • Siras Les

    Playing a different playstyle especially on a professional level must be super difficult. It's already hard enough that's why most pros are only good in 1 or 2 roles and 2 or 3 champs. Playing lee as a carry is not the same as playing tank zac

  • pflaumi

    20:49 I dont follow LCS very much. But just watching this here there is clearly a determining factor. - Metachanges and how certain players fit in the team with their playstyle. Let me clarify. First the metachanges. Remember the time when ADCs were not viable botlane? Rekkles benched himself because he himself said he was not on par with his competition when playing mages. Or the time when the tank meta ended and carry junglers and/or toplaners were the thing? Suddenly a lot of established former pros struggle if its not their style/champpool. Or when Ardent meta ended? - Such big Metachanges can hit the pros hard and there are only two routes if this applies. Adapt to fit in the meta, which takes time and have a even wider chapionpool if u prevail. Or be rdy to be a substitute til either your expertise is needed or u managed to adapt. The thing is having a substitude with a alternative expertise is not even a bad thing and can be utilized in Bo5s. SKT with Faker was completely different than SKT with Easyhoon. Another example is Fnatic with Rekkles. Now the second point. Some teams have a main style of play. Like put most resources to certain players/roles and let them carry the game. Lets say u had such a team together and your main carry is the midlaner. Next season u swap one player in a different role that excels at also beeing the carry. Assuming the meta stayed the same, u created a problem in the playstyle ur team utilized so far. And to fix such problems needs adaptability of the complete team and most importantly ... time. Like i said, i dont watch LCS but maybe this also applied to MikeYoung. The reddit post at 8:30 lets me assume Bjergsen had said carry position in the team, which is why i told the story before the way i did. The thing is overcoming and working out these problems can create great flexibilities. It widens the championpools of the players and the playstyles of the team as a whole. G2 is a great example for this. It feels like everyone can play anything. I especially like it when Wonder fucked up with a carry toplane and next game he got put on "Orn-duty" like they joke about. Same thing with Jankos and Seju. Their style of play was so unpredictable and at the same time dominant in their league. It freshened up the current metaplaystyle/-game and led to other teams also utilizing a greater variety of championpools. To conclude this, i wanna say ur league content is one of my favourites with that kind of style and im looking forward to the next vid.

  • Romnys Gonzalez

    MikeYeung on a team who allow him to play his hyper agressive style. Blaber is like him. Mechanical god who play on his feeeling. Who make actions happens though his instinct. TSM probably destroyed MIke confidence so hard and make him feel like shit he touched bottom and lose himself in the process. Now he doesn't understand or know how to play the game anymore. He lost his mental edge and now doubt about every single action he makes. He look scare of what his teammates will say to him if one play doesn't work. So trying to avoid that situation he turned into a stale player, invisible ward with legs. He reached that point at TSM and TSM just abandon him without teaching him how to get out, or how to properly play tanks without pushing him into the ground with criticism. They didn't want to help his development

      I remember watching this series with a couple of friends and the first thing I said was "TSM is outclassed in every lane and they'll be lucky if they take at least one game." I never really liked Mikeyeung, but I do think TSM did him dirty when it was clearly Mithy's fault that they lost as badly
