Anti-Korean sentiment in China: League of Legends fans call World Elite “crossbred dog team”


Some people in China are still pissed that World Elite (WE) won the Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) Shenzhen League of Legends finals. And it’s not because those people are Edward Gaming (EDG) fans—although that would’ve been better—but rather because World Elite had to rely on Korean players.

(See: Chinese League of Legends teams need to stop recruiting Korean players)

So when the League of Legends week 26 power rankings were posted on the popular Chinese news website, Duowan, and people found out that EDG ranked ahead of WE, fans of both teams had some very nasty words for each other.

Trash WE, crossbred Chinese-Korean dog team. Stupid cunt WE. Fuck you.

comment 4

I am a fan of OMG, but the top comments are all talking about WE and EDG. If you ask me which of those two I support, then it’s definitely EDG. Both EDG and OMG are proud Chinese teams displaying their own strength, and will no doubt defeat the mixed trash dog teams like WE. EDG and OMG fans, come upvote!

comment 2

I laughed. WE defeated EDG 2-1 and still placed lower. Hahaha, I peed myself laughing.

comment 3

Namei is the number one ADC? I almost choked laughing. Weixiao is the best, alright? Uzi is also better than Namei.

WE trash, crossbred Chinese-Korean dog team.

comment 7

I laughed, who gave them the courage to say Namei is China’s number one ADC?

comment 6

EDG is all trash, disgusting. To call Namei the number one ADC, where’s Uzi? Styz? Kid?

Come on China, why so serious? Rooting for your favorite team is normal, but this kind of anti-Korean sentiment is becoming unhealthy.
