‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast
Some Western teams have tried recruiting Korean Overwatch players into their roster. As for me, I’m still undecided on whether it’s the right move or not, the reason being that the scene is still early in development. The West still lacks any kind of LAN circuit that gives us a better idea of how teams compete on LAN, and assuming there is some kind of open LAN part of the year (which might be the case), then new teams with new players from Western regions will rise up at a much faster rate than League of Legends.
On the other hand, if you do it now, you can build up the synergy between the international team and get a step ahead. I suppose if I was recruiting a Korean player, I’d go for supports/tanks as I think that is the biggest difference in skill gap.
