Professional players cannot train on one of the best servers for some reason.
Professional players try to train and develop their strategies most of the time they spend waiting for the Championship. As it turns out, players from Europe are having a hard time, because when they asked for access to Korean servers, where the level is much higher, they were refused.
What is the whole situation about?
LSXYZ9 during the Hotline League meeting informed about the problems of players from Europe.
Western players who wanted to play on Korean servers were refused.
The official reason for the refusal is unknown, and several users mention pros talking about how good Korean servers are. Everyone thought they were denied access to them. Some talk about not showing the players from Europe the tactics characteristic of Korea.
I guess it’s not just Western bands, but literally everyone at the hotel. During the Meiko stream you could see a screenshot where JackeyLove confirms this. Someone mentioned that this is because the Korean players are currently in a different hotel than the rest. – writes one of the Reddit users with the nickname “gongneilianhua”
There is also talk of Tactical and CoreJJ from Team Liquid who can play on KR servers. This is probably because the former has Korean roots, which allows him to have Korean citizenship and the Social Security number he used to create the account. Everyone can have 3 accounts and CoreJJ probably uses one of them. Unless they decide to stream, they shouldn’t have a problem with it.
