Minutes after South Korean League of Legends group SK Telecom T1's gushing contract with Azubu finished, the players started spilling on another administration—Twitch. Be that as it may, they won't not remain there for good.
At this moment it's only a trial, yet that is still a noteworthy get for Twitch. SKT are the dominant League champions—and the main group to have won the World Championship three circumstances. They likewise just so happen to handle the best League player around, mid laner Lee "Faker" Sang-heyok, the 2016 World Championship MVP.
An esports media organization with South Korean roots, Azubu appeared well and good for SKT. A more curated variant of Twitch—as not anybody can have an Azubu stream—Azubu simply doesn't have a similar group engagement. Jerk focuses on building group, while Azubu is a place to watch experts.
"SKT are giving Twitch a shot starting today," Twitch Korea's Susie Kim tweeted. "I trust they appreciate it enough to remain." Shortly some time recently, SKT's Bae "Blast" Jun-sik declared the group's gushing manage Azubu would end, tweeting out a connection to his Twitch stream. Jungler Han "Shelled nut" Wang-ho, beat laner Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon, sub Kang "Clear" Sun-gu, and bolster Lee "Wolf" Jae-wan have additionally started gushing on Twitch.
One recognizable name is missing: Faker. He is the most mainstream player on SKT, as well as the most prevalent League player on the planet. There is a Faker Twitch stream set up, yet it's yet to be affirmed authoritatively. Furthermore, when he twitches, could very well detonate because of the sheer number of watchers he'll draw.
Fourteen Korean Esports Association (KeSPA) League groups collaborated with Azubu in 2014, vowing to stream solely on the Twitch contender. A lot of groups have left the administration from that point forward, with Azubu blamed for not paying its accomplices.
We'll upgrade this story if Faker goes live. Any suppositions on to what extent it takes for him to demolish the Twitch servers?
