TF is so popular there.

Whenever I watch Korean streamers like Westdoor 9 times out of 10 the mid lane is TF vs. Kat.

So Kat, TF and Ahri, three of the best roamers you can pick for mid, are popular in the most aggressive Meta there is?

Go figure.

sounds like my kind of meta ignore everything screw consequences just push everything to the max!

Pros:
solo man invade results complete utter destruction of enemy jungler
amazing game changing plays like flashing smiting the baron
shove minion waves up to enemy turret = winning farm
up close with enemy champions juking for hours
very fun

Cons:
May result in first blood
It may throw games
Prone to jungler camping
one fail juke may end up costing you
still very fun :O

oh god i have seen some good tp lux on NA servers as well.
the aggression in korean meta is so insane
it all seems so random but it isn't
i wish high elo NA games were as exciting to spectate

the thing is that in Korea the games are taken seriously and competitively.

in NA you can watch any streamer and very few of them take it seriously.

The difference is radical and I think it's culturally rooted so don't expect it to change.


EDIT: I think the biggest difference is game throwing. NA server games are thrown so much. Obviously dumb decisions, stupid dives etc., Games end up going back and forth so much.

Korean server still has throws but it's much more rare and much less of a big throw, more of small things.

Usually they act like they're an actual team. They take a lead, use it to ward up and play conservatively but aggressively. Methodical still. Like the games I see they go and take each turret they can for free one by one, ward up and only baron when an important champion is dead. Peel off baron for fights and stuff.

I've seen some ragers and trolls on Korean server too but in their high elo it's pretty spread apart. I'd say 1 troll every 2-3 games on average.


That said I've not watched all that much, that's just my first impression of the Korean server. I don't doubt that I'm not far off, though.
