One of the best League of Legends players around the world will likely attend the upcoming 2022 Spring Split to recuperate. Former FunPlus Phoenix top laner phenom Nuguri will be on leave for next season, according to Reported by Korizon Esports ‘Ashley Kang.
This probable decision comes after the collapse of the group at League World Championship. Although they were unable to win an LPL trophy in the summer, FPX is still hailed as one of the favorites of this year’s tournament with talented players like Doinb, Tian, Nuguri, Crisp and LWX return to try to win their second Summoner’s Cup.
At Worlds, they were placed in a group where it seemed easy to advance. Although they drew LCK’s DWG KIA, they were also placed in a group with North America’s Cloud9 and Europe’s Rogue. Based on the format of both Western teams, FPX looks like a duel for the knockout stage.
Unfortunately for FPX, the predictions didn’t come true after the all-star roster faltered heavily in the second half of the group stage. Nuguri and the rest of FPX looked lost whenever they were without a leader and were completely uncoordinated throughout the event. They have lost 4 matches in a row on the 4th day of the groups and ranked in the last place of Group A.
Nuguri was affiliated with DWG KIA during the recent season where he supposedly rejoining ShowMaker and Canyon in an attempt to bring back a trio of 2020 World Champions destroyed the competition. If the 22-year-old decides to retire, it will leave DK with a sizable hole in the top lane when Khan retires. League.
