Game to Watch
The LPL kicks off Week 1 with an absolute banger of a series between the defending league champions, Top Esports and the 2020 World Championship finalists Suning. This series will feature several very hype matchups, but the one I’m most interested to watch is the ADC matchup. TES’s JackeyLove will be looking re-assert himself as the best AD Carry in China as he faces off with the hot-shot, rising superstar huanfeng, who turned heads at Worlds last year.
