Libalent continue the Japanese curse
Japan’s representatives in the Pacific Championship have now occupied the bottom of the standings in successive seasons.
In the spirit of SunSister and DeToNator.Gold’s poor peformances, Libalent Supreme ended the regular season without a single victory.
Even more concerning was the team’s map record, as they were only able to pick up a single map across their fourteen games.
Libalent were one of the stronger Japanese teams at the start of the season but they were arguably not the best in the country, with USG Iridata failing to apply for the Season 2 qualifier.
Whilst Japanese teams have performed poorly in the event so far, the Japanese scene does have the talent it takes to be competitive.
Until this talent is concentrated on a single team Japan will likely continue to occupy the bottom of the standings when competing in the tournament.
