Why are NA Teams not in good shape?

It's because LoL champion design is catered to white people.


If LoL had a large rooster of black champs, and we had free internet access to urban communities, and LoL had fly gear instead of stupid looking Teemo hats, you'll get a Lebron James of ADC.

LOL, that doesn't explain why the Asian Teams are dominating tho?



Asian teams dominate because they treat the game like a job and outwork everyone else. Westerners tend to believe they can win by putting in 8 hour days. Meanwhile out East they are pumping 16-18 hour days.

Then there is a question of intelligence. A lot of the American players are really really dim.

Today I read on the Internet that America is near the bottom for economics, commerce, and healthcare. I laughed until I cried.

You forgot education, infrastructure, technology, food quality, civil liberties, and a few other things.

What Dyrus said is really it mainly. It's hard to really describe but Asian teams have a more adaptive style of play, probably they aren't as big meta whores as NA is. Many times they lead the pace of the game, we saw it on perfect display at MLG summer where Blaze completely stomped TSM with tons of different comps by roaming around while keeping up in cs.

NA teams are then forced to try to adapt as well but because we're less experienced we don't do it as well, simple as that. TSM improved on adapting since summer but I feel like it was very forced and still unnatural to them in their tourney games because their cs plummeted in many games when they roamed and they seemed to be completely on the defensive.

Asian teams are just better at controlling the game and the game pace right now.

Standard hours if you count sweat-shop hard labor as a standard.

Love this answer. But I think part of it might also be, as stated, cultural stuff like individualism vs collectivism.


That's not true, because socialist China has been die hard trying to be the best in everything over the past years. Everything from cheating to probably test tube athletic genetic babies. They still not the best (yet).


You misunderstand. I'm not saying it IS the cause, I'm saying it might be part of it. Inherently both cultural perspectives have both advantages and disadvantages, and you can't really say that what the Chinese government is doing is intertwined with collectivism. Collectivism =/= communism.

It is a small factor among many, but I believe it has an effect. Culture almost always does. Examples are people diagnosed with schizophrenia having a better prognosis in collectivist countries as opposed to individualist (where they blame them, rather than take their burden on as a family responsibility) or in cultures where shamanistic rituals are commonplace (there has been suggestions that shamans and oracles in ancient times may have had schizophrenia, in certain cases)
