Pawn asks for votes in League of Legends All-Star event, realizes he has no chance

If nothing else, you have to credit Heo “Pawn” Won-seok for his honesty.

Pawn, the mid laner for KT Rolster, wrote a Facebook post Monday asking for votes for the League of Legends All-Star event, the annual season-ending showcase of the most popular players from each region. It seemed like a noble thing to do, because who doesn’t want to be recognized among his peers?

But the caveat to this year’s event is there’s a limit of two players per team eligible, and, well, on a team with Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho, Cho “Mata” Se-hyeong and Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu, Pawn realized he probably didn’t have a chance to beat out at least two of his teammates.

According to a number of timely screen captures posted on the League of Legends community forums on Inven, Pawn originally posted that he was “confident in the 1-v-1 tournament portion for All-Stars” and asked for fans to vote for him.

Smeb then replied to the comment chain and told Pawn to “give up and do the dishes” in the gaming house, to which Pawn replied that he has indeed “given up” on his chances on being chosen for the All-Star event, writing that he realized fans are limited to voting for two players of the same team for the region’s All-Star lineup.

Even if he were one of the two most popular players on his team, he’d still be going up against Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, the best and most beloved League of Legends player of all time, in the mid lane.

We appreciate your realness, Pawn.
